Haven't felt like taking pics. of this project till now.

It's pretty far along but it's finally starting to come together.

I've decided not to wire the Hemi just because. Too humid to get all that fiddly with plug wires.

It's built to replicate a special order '68 - Buffed silver over a silver and black interior.

I just had to see if the recently arrived resin from Perry's would fit nicely and it does. A future project will be a '69 RR painted Spanish Gold to replicate a local 1:1.

A mockup to see how the interior looks/fits.

Wheels are painted Tamiya NATO black which is more of a very dark grey.

Looks good. The silver/silver combo makes this baby bright. It would definitley be hard to miss with the top down.

It's almost too dang humid to work on a model so progress is slow.

BMF is almost finished.

DSCF2351-vi.jpg

The marker lamps were done with Sharpies and some Testors Clear Parts Cement over BMF.

The woodgrain was done using a brown Sharpie over Tamiya Red Brown acyrlic.

Yeah. I know about the hood. There's a few other minor details that need to be looked at before it hits the road.
