I used amt duster  kit for starting point, back is scratch. I decided to build only the correct version from the movie " Duell". My biggest problem is paint, in the original PLY  brochure from 70, 71 there is a color called TorRed, in my opinion the best  match color is the model  master sunburst. And that's how it is painted.

Very good ! One of my favourite films ever .

The colour on the Valiants ( 3 cars were used for the film : 1970 with the 5.2 litre V8 ; 1971 with slant Six , and ; 1972 with Slant Six ) is FE5 Rallye Red .  The other colour mentioned is EV2  Tor-Red  which is what Dodge named Hemi Orange  . Certainly , the 1971 paint chip chart is a poor representation of the *actual* colours :
