1970 Plymouth GTX

I built this GTX many, many years ago.  I built it box stock and recently rebuilt and polished it.  I left it as is, but if I was to do rebuild it again, I would wire the engine and use Bare Metal Foil for the trim and moldings.

Looks great Mike. Like you said it was built a long time ago so I like the patina on the rear bumper. You can always touch it up again if you like, someday.

Thank you guys!  Inspite of the fact that these are old Monogram kits in 1/24 scale, they do have good crisp moldings.  I think the '70 GTX was converted to the '70 Roadrunner by Revellogram at some point and I have a couple of those built on the shelf.  I have been a bit leary of the molded in color scheme especially if the color is metallic.  Those usually have a lot of swirls in the plastic and sometimes the metallic can be a little too large for scale.  This particular build has good metallic in it.

Love it! Always been a fan of the Monogram kits from back then. Not tons of detail but they sure look spot on when done. Nice that you’ve kept it, I gave away all the 1:24’s I built as a teen in the 80’s.
