Revell/Foose '67 Dodge Charger

First of all, no pictures yet. I'm an old dog trying to learn how to be hi-tech.

With that behind us, The Foose Charger is out and in my opinion is well worth the $25.00 I spent on it.

The only down fall is the car sits at stock height. I played around with mine over the weekend and found by sanding the inside of the front inner wheel well of the body (upper portion)(almost paper thin) as well as a little from the inside of the front fender, you can get the tires to fit up inside the body. Of course now you have to modify the front suspension to get the front end down. You may want to drop the rear just a little.

In addition to already excellent 1967 Charger kit, you'll get a set of Foose Mopar road wheels, new bucket seats (front & back), steering wheel, and the most impressive 'SHAKER HOOD,scoop, and air cleaner assemby.

Revell has also left the stock parts in this kit so you can build it as a stock version.

As I said before, not bad for the standard price of $24.95.

With a little work here and there, this should be a fun kit to build. Hopefully someone (with more smarts than me) will post some pictures.

Get one, and have FUN!!!

You won't be disappointed...I bought three of these with plans of moving the shaker hood to the Coronet, as well as the wheels.

These are all ok kits but need work to get them to look anything like the box art. Pretty much stock everthing except tires and wheels and decals.

I might seem greedy, but does the kit still have the drag parts and headers?

Im pretty curious about the wheels set.

Previous Foose┬┤s editions have not brought anything new in terms of wheels (as far as I can find on the internet)

You are not alone,

Foose hasn't done anything yet that appeals to me . And I definitly will not pay extra for a model kit just because his name is on the box

Some Foose cars are ok but for the most part I can pass on them. Now, Boyd's cars look nice but I know some people didn't care much for him either. I always liked the 56 Chevy "Junkyard Dog" that they did and the 63 Max Wedge Dodge. They were some nice cars.

That's the normal Revell release cycle...shops in the preferred vendor program get them around the 20th-25th of the month, everywhere else early in the following month.

Ironicly many of Boyds cars were designed by Foose, He was Boyds chief designer.

I know alot of Boyd's cars was designed by Foose but I was referring to Boyd's later cars after Foose left.
