1977 Dodge Monaco 4 door

Recommended Posts

Here is one that I posted a very long time ago in the work bench section. This one I could not get the hood to set right but over all was a fun build. I will say there are a few things I will correct when I build the next one like the gap in the inner fenders where you can see the tires through the gap. Enjoy!

I approve. Nice choice of wheels. I just love this kit. Not too many sedans look sexy but this would be one. Almost any muscle wheel looks good on this.

This is well done, and the hood issue is one that I've run into with many of the old MPC era models. I've had some success with placing the hood in warm water for a few minutes, bending it closer to the shape I want, and quickly running it under cold water to "set" it.

Clean job on a pretty basic kit, Brian 

The hood issue.... Mate I've got several of these kits & a couple are "in-progress"  I've found it's not the hood that's the problem it's the mounting bar the hood sit's on! It's too flat  If you're going to do another 1 then cut that mounting bar off & reposition it... Or even better, ( don't know if you know or not?) use the '71 AMT Charger kit as a donor.... Chassis/engine/engine bay etc.... Trust me, it all fits  with moderate/minor mods 

On the top of the firewall... I see a raised spot in the middle, right at the base of the windshield. Perhaps stack up several layers of masking tape on the windshield... to prevent damage, and moto tool that bump.

Other idea... buy small rare earth magnets, add to each rear corner.
