It's been almost 3 years since I completed last model. Now I got time and will to continue this amazing hobby and I decided to start working on 3 models at the same time, because this models are very similar with similar paints and parts. The models I'm working on are: Revell 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Revell 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 and Lindberg Dodge Charger SRT8. All the parts were prepared for painting in the last couple of days and today some of them were painted with aluminum revell enamel 99. The body colors will be Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat for Charger and Magnum and Plum Crazy Purple for Challenger. Sorry for bad pics taken with my phone.

And while I wasn't building models I certainly was buying them :D Here is my Mopar collection to date :wink:

Andreas you named this right nothing like modern MOPAR. Looking forward to seeing your progress on these and your future ones. Let me know if you need any 1:1 pictures of the Challenger or Magnum.

Yesterday and today I managed to paint the interior with light and dark gray. All I have to do is make some corrections and add some details.

Good to see these! 👍 I've built all 3 😉 Before you start colour paint make sure to test fit body parted etc... Especially the Challenger's engine bay... There have been issues with fitting correctly & also rear hatch door on the Magnum 😉👍

I did a quick mock up of interior, body and chassis today and it looks like there are no fit issues :D

Andraz looking good. Are you going for factory stock colors ?

Yes I'm trying to replicate factory colors as much as possible. I think that light gray should be a bit darker, but I'll leave it as is. As for the body colors I'm gonna go with brilliant black pearl for magnum and charger, and plum crazy for challenger.

Can somebody tell me what are the colors for charger/challenger/magnum chassis. The instructions say semi gloss black but I'm not sure that's correct. I was searching for pictures and all I found was a picture of charger with chassis in body color.

Thanks for your help!

Dan, thanks a lot for the photos, they'll help a lot :) You've got an awesome ride! I wish I could step into a dealership and buy or even see more of these cars over here...and for the price you pay for it (our Jeep dealer wants $116k for an GC SRT :D ).

I had time to do some work today and I painted the engines with hemi orange. I also painted all the parts that should be steel color and detailed brake calipers :)
