2008 Dodge Magnum Super Bee Prototype and it's brother.

Hot off the workbench, I just finished and photographed my Super Bee prototype. (So new, the glue is not fully dry on the headlight covers). I showed this at NNL East in March on the primer table along with the 300 Touring Wagon(not done yet), but second in line to be finished after my Camaro Roadster concept. The Super Bee has a Dodge Magnum front clip, Chrysler 300c body, converted to a 2 door, the roof from a 1970 Super Bee (modified) and the tail lights from the same '70 Super Bee. Paint is Tamiya Chrome Yellow covered by Clear Effec to give it some sparkle. The stripes and lettering are computer cut and also painted with Tamiya paint then clear coated and waxed. The wheels were a steal from Radio Shack at a close out price of $1.97. (never thought I would use them, but I really like how the look on the Super Bee) Wheel spinners came from an Accurate Miniatures Grand Sport Corvette. I enclosed a few shots of this one early on so you can see the progress. I also shot a few pictures with the Dodge's Brother, the 300C Coupe. I guess you can tell I like coupes over 4 doors. ( After the shots were done, I realized I did not have the 300's door closed all the way, and I was too lazy to set up again and re-shoot it)Thanks for looking and comments/complaints always welcome.

These are the drawings I did for how expected the cars to look. I made a few detail changes to the Super Bee. I blacked out the hood and rear view mirrors then added the graphic for "Super Bee" on both sides, changed the stripe to a straight one instead of turning down, as it makes the car look longer and did away with the fuel filler door on the rear fender as it looked to me to break up the flowing line of the car.
