This is my 1:16 Scale General Lee Kit turned cool. I resin cast the wheels and had them done just in time for one of the big dogs to come out with a better looking wheel. :) The decals are home made on white decal sheet. I matched the blue on the printer so i didn't have to cut out inside of anything.

As far as the history of this car goes i don't know much. It was one of the few tunnelback cars and he didn't do too well with it.

I just found some reference photos of the car and thought of the General Lee Kit. post-9242-0-29429000-1404253376_thumb.jppost-9242-0-52772400-1404253377_thumb.jppost-9242-0-31102000-1404253378_thumb.jppost-9242-0-21931600-1404253379_thumb.jppost-9242-0-40748000-1404253386_thumb.jppost-9242-0-15475200-1404253387_thumb.jp

But the Car just looked too sharp. Like it was just too clean, I started to think maybe it was raced on the dirt tracks too.(I wish they still did that) so i decided to make it dirty. My only regret now is no dents...lol

Oh man, that is nice! Those MPC Chargers look so good. Is that the out-of-box stance?

X2. Dave Marcis was a journeyman racer that plugged along making a living doing what he loved (in wingtip shoes!) Great model!

Thanks Yall!

Yes it is the box stock stance. you get to choose how high you want the back to sit and i went right in the middle.

I also shaved down the fender flairs a bit around the wheel well.
