That's a killer Dart! Donn is a solid builder!

Excellent detail and it's always nice to see some weathering on this type of build...

That's an impressive build with a typical Donn Yost stellar finish.

Hi , gang ! Thank you for the compliments , they are greatly appreciated !

Revell kit , wheels are from the AMT Vette , intake manifold is from one of the Lindberg Dodge kits . Building the motor was rough , like stuffing 10 pounds of stuff in a 5 pound bag ! Used the carbs from a ' 66 Nova .

Color is Testors Competition Orange with Pearl X Bright Gold suspended in the clear coat overlay . I used pastel chalks to lightly weather the motor and frame and various metallizers throughout the build . Slixx decals finished it out . I have The Dragon Lady Dart well on it's way too !

Donn, one of the wonderful things about this engine bay is that upon closer inspection you begin to see the subtle weathering. Beautiful work indeed.

This was Beauty and the Beast , motor wise ! Beauty ? Having a 24" by 16" full color photo to follow . Beast ? Trying to stuff it all in with 1/25th scale parts !

Believe me , I scared the daylights out of the pups a few times with my bellering , cussin' , and fussin' ! Lmao ! A very nice kit to build , but I believe I enjoyed building the Revell ' 68 Charger more .

Don this is one beautiful build. Paint is killer as always. Which AMT Vette did those wheels come from? They look like very nice Weld Pro Stars and they are a tad different than the pro stars that came from the revell pro stock kits. Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see the next one.

Thank you , Brother D ! Mutual admiration society here , buddy ! Your work speaks for itself , loud and clear !

Moon , it's the ' 57 street machine kit . The model is green and white on the box with that god awful scoop on it . The kit is an excellent one to build , only drawback , no hard top ! Wheels are not as deep as the ones in the Revell kit but certainly fit the bill for a variety of builds . Thanks for the kudos !

That's very nice looking Hemi Dart. Paint job is fantastic, so smooth and shiny. I like the engine details too, and the slight weathering even if I usually don't like it, but this just fits to my eye perfectly. Very nice build.

Building tip for 68 Hemi Darts and Cudas ............ Omit front fender side marker lights. These cars had glass front fenders and hood and no side marker lights
