69 Charger

I have decided to move this to it's own thread. This model will be a curb side as I am concentrating on

paint and stance on this car.

This is where I started. Old MPC charger body and interior, with a Johan Superbird chassis pan. The

wheels are an experiment (that went way wrong). As you can see the body has been shaved and smoothed.

New wheels and better stance. Primer is Rust-o-leum black sandable. (Good stuff in my book)

The paint that I used is, Model Master custom lacquer system black. The car has not been polished yet

,but turned out good, I think.

Tell me what you think.

Just moved to West Carrollton. I needed something to do while I am off work.

None of my snap kits looked good, so I dug these parts out of the parts box.

You should be VERY close to The Hobby Shop on S.R. 741 (721?) not too far from the Dayton Mall. I dig the Charger by the way!! I was born in Dayton. B)

I can be at that shop in 5 mins. They have a lot of things going on there on Saturday mornings.

I'm glad you guys like the Charger. This project is a first for me, I try to over engineer model projects, and end up making a mess. I needed to go in a different direction.

Sometimes, you jus have to let go and follow a hunch and the next thing you know, the kit is in the display shelf!! I hope to visit that hobby shop upon my return to that area. I haven't been in well over 7 years!! I'm glad it's still open!! Take care!! B)
