I've put the ZZ Top Eliminator on the back burner to start this Charger model I want to enter in a local contest (my first). The car will be painted the new Alclad Kandy Orange enamel with a black vinyl roof and black interior.

OH super nice. I love this car. I have 4 of them in various stages. Great start and I like what you did with the trunk. The braces for the door are really nice idea too.

I look forward to seeing this one done. I love chargers and that kandy color is awesome. Nice job on the cutouts, hinges and door panels too!

Odd to see the trunk hinges done like this but, I like it. They are much closer to accurate because they are attached inside the inner trunk structure on many 1:1 cars. Great Work.

Putty, sand... putty, sand... I hate this part.

Decided to put the wheels on. Wow are they ever big... too big to turn the front ones and the back ones are touching the body.

I need to either lift the suspension a bit or enlarge the fender openings... or possibly a bit of both. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Wow this is looking pretty sweet. great pictures with the hinges and such. Makes me brave enough to try that on a model ;)

Also that color for the chassis looks great!

And great details on the engine. Can't wait for more!
