    I've built a couple of those kits over the decades but never did one as a woodie.. That is an interesting and creative look. Thumbs up for your desire to do it differently.

    thank you  it came with two different sets of woodie paneling decals

    Same here, Rodger Dodger is one of those that just looks "right." I also had the Dixie Challenger, though one of my favorite decos is when they used it in their Cop Rods series.

    One of my favorite Hot Wheels cars. I had the one called "Dixie Challenger". Probably wouldn't be PC nowadays. 

    If that's the Lindberg kit, I want one. The proportions look real good!

    thanks it is the lindberg  kit  the only 72 challenger kit that was avialible and priced well till they seemed to jhave discontinued it 
    i to have a dixie challenger though the baseplate has 70 challenger  embossed on it  instead of dixie challenger but the packaging  still says it  mine is dark metallic blue with black and silver flames  i made a model replica of that also  but reveresed the colors did the body in gloss black and blue flames 

  7. here is my  1/25th scale replica of the hot wheels car  rodger dodger   which was a custom dodge challenger   this is based on the 1970-2014 version of the tooling they  retooled it in 2015  and changed the way the  engine and pipes  look and are layed out   now the pipes come  out  from under the  car infront of the doors and behind the  wheel well openings in the front quarter panels they also shrunk the size of the  engine  in hight  
    i  did mine in  hot wheels highway 35 world race video game  livery  in  the game this car is driven by  scorchers driver wayne casper  and replaced the licened  car he drove in the movie the game is based on  which was the 1999 dodge charger concept 
    i used my lindberg 72 challenger  to make this   which means i have to find another  one  
    i built this model  a few months ago  and had to wiat till i got the logos for it  which i got late last month  at the same time i got the logos  for my other other highway 35 world race and acceleracers cars i built and am planing on  building

    Well played, using the Supra as a base for Synkro. I especially like the wheels, how did you make those?

    thank you  i not sure where or who i got them from but i think they are from a 1/24th scale die-cast   i painted the tires  that color  
    i am acually trying to make almost evey teku and metal maniacs cars from the 4  acceleracers films   i already have built several of the metal maniacs cars  rivited,hollowback,spine buster,rollin' thunder  and am working on jackhammer  and the taro's 70 roadrunner   
    but this is the first teku car i have made so far  

  10. this is my atempt at replicating in model form  this  generic  retro modern truck  that hot wheels made in 2003   
    i  did mine to look like the  wave rippers version from  hot wheels highway 35 world race  movie   it is  not  100 percent accurate  but close enough  
    i used a the  amt/ertl  ford ranger slammers snap kit  i  scratch made the  surfboards  and  reshaped it and resculpted it  with putty    the rims and tires   are from a revell  snaptite 2017  ford gt kit  the raised section of the hood i made from roof  of a very broken  car body
