MPC 1969 Dodge Charger


Recommended Posts

I can't help but love this kit. Deck stripe is from the Revell '68 Charger, I just split it down the centre and closed it up to look more like the '69 stripe. Grille inserts are mostly out of the box but trimmed down using some styrene for the chrome trim line.  Thanks, guys, for checking in to WIP on this, too many mods to list here so here's some pics:)

You might be the first person I've ever heard say that. Sure is good looking model though. Nice work.

I like these difficult kits to a degree as well, they make us stretch those basic modeling skills. This one came out very nice, and the red interior and stripe really wake up a white car. Your chassis work is notable, and I always enjoy watching your builds come together. Well done!

Another beautiful looking Charger. I like the color and stripe combination. Good thing you enjoy all the fabrication you do using this kit.

For a kit like this it sure turned out a winner Gareth. You sure know how to make these old kits shine like a diamond man. Just beautiful.

Cheers, Joe.

Fantastic Charger! I sure enjoyed watching you build it my friend!

Thanks man, I know you like watching these Chargers being built:) I have the '71 Charger coming up soon which is new to me, never built one before but looking forward to it.

Cheers buddy. Yeah, I love red and white combos. The main reason I chose white really is because I had one more tail stripe left over from one of the three on the decal sheet in the '68 Revell Charger kit.

Thanks Dave. Yes, it has to be something you enjoy doing for sure. I have an old issue of the '64 Impala I want to "go to town on" so look out for that. No fit issues with that kit if I remember from last time I built one, so half the battle already won there👍

Thanks mate. Hopefully Round2 is watching and think "Hmm, maybe we could do something with this kit"  We can only wish, hu? ..well, I do anyway, haha.
