1961 Ramchargers - On the shelf

This is one of my favorite builds ever. This one was from the beginning to be a get it started to get it done in a timely fashion with out a lot of drama or delays.

I never knew this car even existed till I saw another members build ( caine440 ) and I could not get it out of my mind. It was about this same time I stumbled onto a promo on ebay and a light bulb went off that I couldn't get to go out.

It started out as a re-issued Johan promo that I think is an 80's release that is actually stryene instead of the original warp prone acetate. Chassis is just a simple slammed together from the Lindberg 1964 Dodge with the 8-3/4 rear axle from the Revell Dart. I might someday add some paint detail to the underside ( doubt it ) Hood is molded shut and it will stay that way, so there is no engine in it .It's a curbside.

Paint is Duplicolor white laquer sprayed straight from the rattle can with UPOL rattle can urethane clear. Lettering is for now just some clear address labels I drummed up and printed off on my computer till the actual water slide decals show up,,, but visually nothing will change.

Its not perfect but I am really pleased with the finished product.

Enjoy, I know I sure did.

This was my ultimate goal.

That's nice build of nice subject. We can rarely seen these '61 Dodges built, especially in Ramchargers form. You did excellent job with the BMF on this one, paint and decals look very good too.
