'71 Hemi 'Cuda built with the rare orange factory option interior. Got the idea to build it like this after seeing a white billboard delete '71 'Cuda convertible with this option featured in a couple Mopar magazines years ago. This was one of my first builds from over 10 years ago LOL...

Those wheels used to come in the Johan Eddie Schartman Comet if my memory is right.

Let's see your Barracuda models...

Does a large scale one count? 1927849-crazy2.gif

The automotive version of an under-the-table swap meet find....

Barracuda015-vi.jpg

I'm going to need a HUGE tank of Super Clean to strip this sucka!

Barracuda077-vi.jpg

Just a bit of re-finishing required

Barracuda245-vi.jpg

It didn't fit in my spray booth.... I had to use a bigger one

Tuck a few ponies under the hood

SANY0003-vi.jpg

Fast-forward to many lost weekends, self denial of anything but feeding the car, and a few late nights and here she is

One of these days I'll build the replica, which *should* go quicker. And cheaper. drive.gif

I believe that the Revell 69 camaro street machine kit has those wheels but only in the back. It is the camaro with the twin turbo small block.

Another stunning build. Nice work David!

BTW: I see your from York. Are you a member of the CPMCC, and have we met? I was a member for years when I lived in Ephrata and am still in contact with the crew, occasionally dropping in when I'm out that way visiting.

Nice Cuda's guys. Here are some of mine.

First up is a 70 AAR Cuda. Also a Revell 71 Hemicuda kitbashed with a Revell 70 TA Challenger. Resin conversion from MPB Detail Products with a vaccuum formed hood.

70AARAA.jpg

Another 70 AAR but built from the 1995 issued kit.

70AARBA.jpg

Here is a 70 Hemicuda convertible. Started with the 71 kit and resin copies of the MPB detail stuff.

70CUDAAA.jpg

Here is a 70 Hemicuda hardtop built just like the convertible. Just has a rare burnt orange interior and hockey stick stripe.

70CUDABA.jpg

Now for the 71's.

Thanks! I`m not a member of any clubs currently. What is CPMCC? Are they from the Lancaster area?

Hopefully I can get a picture of my Plum Crazy Hemi Cuda convertible up here soon.

Absolutely beautiful. The Cuda is my favorite car of all time and your work is spectacular. I aspire to build a model car that looks that good someday.
