Hi guys,

Just finished this mighty Mopar, Pretty much out of the box ,Paint is from my local auto store here in England called halfords, goes on nice for a spray can, still need to give a final polish.

Wheels are traditional Cragar 5 spokes with slicks on the rears for a bit of weekend strip action.

I love Mopars, have a 71 Charger, two 69 chargers & a 69 Super Bee yet to build.

Cheer Damian.

Hi Jon & Mark Thanks for the nice comments,

I'm really pleased with the result, I love the cragars, I'm very particular with getting the wheel/tyre combination & 'right' stance on my model cars, if its wrong then the whole model doesnt look right.

The paint is called 'Rover Opaline Green metallic' from my local auto parts store here in the UK, with a clear coat

Cheers damian

Nice little Mopar collection you've got going there, Damian. That Rover color looks like a shade that Chrysler should've offered back then, and the billboards, slats & spoiler really set it off.

Who doesn't love the E-bodies? Or '68-'70 Chargers for that matter? Your builds look very clean. There's a lot to like here.

That looks super nice Damian! B)

I don't own any of the 1/24 Revell/Monogram E bodies, mostly because of the stories of all of the inaccuracies. To my eye, your version looks like a VERY good representation of the 1:1, but I'm not a Mopar enthusiast either. Did you do anything to your build as far as alterations to the body, etc???

It looks very "right" on the Cragars with the slicks. The paint looks like it should be a factory color too. Nice build!

Awesome job on the Cuda, I like that last picture the most. Nothing beats a photo full of Mopars. :D

Looks lovely, really clean! Don't you find Halfords spray cans really easy to work with? I love them. Keep it up!
