this is the 2 in 1 kit r/t or t/a. going to build the r/t version stock with the exception of the wheels and tires that are supplied. I'll raid the spares box for them. I have a can of go mango orange that I plan on using. this is another kit that's been in the stash for years. time to build it. c&c are welcome and thanks for looking.

well so far the engine builds up pretty nice. not crazy about a metal axle in front but I don't think you'll see much of it on the finished build. I'm using all testors and krylon paints on everything but the body. it will be model master lacquer.

Looks great! The Challenger really is one of the cleaner muscle car designs, IMO, and it oughta really pop in mango orange.

What paint/color did you use for the exhaust manifolds? They look just right.

Looks great!! Bold choice on the green shocks...looks just right. Having done the T-Bird chassis, I can fully appreciate the work that goes into cleaning up the mold seams on the exhaust alone!

thank you Douglas!

Looking good so far, the Go Mango is a really nice color and will look great on that car! I would love to come by that kit, I recently built the much more common 1/24 Challenger T/A.

thanks Craig, it's been in the stash several years.
