1979 Dodge Warlock 456M

Posted · Report post

Yes you read the title right, I'm building up a 1/18th diecast Dodge Warlock with the drivetrain/suspension out of my crumbling (see "Worst Diecast Ever!" thread) Ferrari 456M diecast. Used the door mirrors from a Chevy Avalanche diecast, and I'm planning on custom bumpers, and maybe a tonneau cover.

Body with gloss black wheels, rough stance.

V12 engine, almost complete.

Front upper A-arms installed, have to do a little reinforcing.

Thanks so far! I figured out that since the lower a-arms and "spindles" attach to the upper a-arms with screws, then I'm going to assemble those parts to help with making a front suspension crossmember setup. I figure that I could then allow the entire lower suspension set to come apart simply by undoing 2 screws.

The rear will be a bit more interesting due to the addition of the axle halfs and transmission.

:lol: It will be a little while till I work on this again, since it's sitting several hours away at home. I did get the rear suspension mounted and the front suspension figured out though (no pictures at the moment however).
