So glad this one is finally off the workbench . Waht started of to be a simple wekend build turned into a major pain in the @&%$ . Painted and stripped , twice. The 2 layer decals the registration was off ever so slightly, causing there own issues . Even now the body has crazing in the plastic under the paint that didn't show till it was decaled and cleared. At that point I just wanted it done and in the case so I could move on. Nothing special details wise but a MAD pre-wired dist

I'll add some more pictures over the weekend.

I think it's terrific....... but I love B body mopars anyway.

on a previous thread you mentioned this model came in White.

That would make it a White Lightning.....a chase type model from that particular

manufacturer (Polar Lights/ Playing Mantis).

I would have loved to have it.

Nice build of a great subject! The paint looks very good, even if you had some troubles with it and overall finishing is truly amazing, very clean work.

Thanks all. I really appreciate it .

It started out as one of the Poloar Lights pearl white snap kits. I added the Hemi heads and crossram intake from the parts box ( I think it's Johan pieces) With the hood scoop i think is from the Lindberg 64 Dodge .

Paint is a chrysler light gold from a Duplicolor rattle can with a rattle can urethane clear. Interior is dark primer base with a Tamaya Champange gold top coat , with silver and black accents . A MAD pre-wired dist and called it done
