  1. Thanks! The pic is really helpful! I’ve done the primer/color overspray chassis for a while now. It gives a nice factory fresh appearance. I’ve never been real sure on suspension/cross member colours and whatnot.
  2. I’m starting a ‘68 Roadrunner (AMT), and I’m wondering what color the front sub frame would be from the factory? I seem to recall reading that the engine/transmission were installed onto the sub frame, then the whole setup was installed onto the car as an assembly. I’m shooting for a factory accurate build with this one. I generally paint the sub frame primer gray with the rest of the chassis, not sure that’s right though.
  3. Thanks! Bills72sj, the whole kit is the Revell F&F ‘70 Charger.
  4. Captain Spaulding and Claude Tibodeau, thanks! This one was in the works for a bit over a year. I’ve got a few other MoPars that might get the same treatment.
  5. Thanks! The V10 fit great! Though if I were to do it again, I’d move it a bit over to the passenger side to center it a bit better. It does sit closer to the rad support then the V8, so I relocated the rad to the grill side of the rad support and added an electric fan. This V10 was from the Revell Viper ACR kit.
  6. Finally finished this one the other day. I bit outside of what I usually build, but was fun modifying the suspension and such! ‘70 F&F Charger with seats, steering wheel and V10 from the ACR Viper, wheels and tires from the Sidewinder Dakota, brakes from MAS (I think? I’ve had them forever just in a pile of other stuff from them). Colour is Dodge Surf Blue Pearl from Galaxy Paints.
  7. It took a while, but I finally got this one finished. Only the second finished Tamiya kit I’ve done, and it went together pretty good. A lot of detail that ends up covered in the end, but I’m pretty happy with it. Painted Tamiya TS-60 Pearl Green. I wanted to get away from red/yellow/black that most Ferrari’s seem to be. Done box stock. I didn’t really enjoy all the masking that comes with this kit, but it worked out. Planning on doing the FXX as well, once I’m back to work and can afford another Tamiya kit!
  8. Thanks! Yeah, I’m a bit of a MoPar nut. I bought my first when I was twentyish, about 17 years ago (a ‘66 Plymouth Sport Fury) and been there ever since. Prior to that I had a few Chevies and Nissans, and Dad was a Ford guy for a long time. But I got so tired of the constant fixing, even on low mileage vehicles. I’ve had Dodges with over 400,000 kms that ran and drove perfectly. So I stick to what works for me!
  9. Thanks everyone! The carbs are from Fireball Modelworks, he makes awesome stuff!
  10. Not a super productive year, but I got some out onto the shelf! ’70 Dodge Super Bee ’69 Dodge Charger ’67 Plymouth GTX ‘09 Dodge Challenger ’70 Plymouth GTX ‘69 Dodge Daytona ‘71 Plymouth Duster ’70 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda
  11. dwc43- I’m not particularly concerned about if I do a non factory colour for the elastomeric bumpers, good info to know, but I tend to just go with whatever strikes me at the time! I’ve heard people talk about using guitar strings for stuff, but I’ve never tried it. I don’t have any, so next time I guess.
  12. Ah, learn things every day! I’m going off a picture I found online, so I guess the car had been updated!
