1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee

Recommended Posts

Here is my MPC finished 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee 440 Six-pack Engine.

Didn't liked the fitting since the body and interior are from the old MPC kit and the chassis/undercarriage and engine bay are recent. But overall, it's a decent kit.

I used the more realistic six pack carb from the AMT 1971 Plymouth Duster Kit. I couldn't let the carb be "Naked" without adding all the proper linkage a six pack carb should display. Was a pain in the butt but very worth it.

Red body with white interior makes a beautiful combo.

Comments welcome.

Enjoy.

Very nice looking model and the extra detail in the engine bay was definitely worth it.

Great detailing in that engine bay. I commend you on your choice of materials for plug wires and hoses. WAY TOO MANY modelers use over-sized wires and hoses and it ruins otherwise nice builds. Your engine bay looks scale perfect; nice job!

Thanks very much Rusty.

Yup, you nailed it. Too many modellers don't use propper scale wirering making it look kinda "bulky".

You even have the engine paint on the battery cable. Now that's paying attention to the details... B)
