  1. Bought this in May and have been working on it since..it is out of box which was a change for me.. Nick
  2. Purchased this well worn MPC '78 Monaco promo at Moparfest in August, ended up rebuilding it and detailing it a bit using some parts from the AMT '71 Charger.......MPC actually painted the bodies of these in the OEM color (which happens to be Sherwood green on this one).......I was able to polish out the original paint.... Nick
  3. Thank you guys.......this one got me back into the hobby after a nearly 2 year slump.
  4. Like all of my 1:1's, they come to be as gluebombs LOL.......today was some reconstructive surgery on it...
  5. A few things I've got in the last month, including another truck..
  6. This is going to be long winded, for that I'll apologize now folks... For me, the Mopar Community is something that is a large part of my life and has been for 5 years now, It has brought me experiences and friends I wouldn't have otherwise. Some of the best people I've ever met have have the Blue "M" on a piece of clothing they own. At the moment, I own 3 Mopars, my beloved 1969 Plymouth Fury III Convertible which I have owned since 2013, my 1973 Plymouth Fury I sedan which i have owned since March of 2015 and my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 which I bought In February, in between I have
  7. The Real trailer still exists in it's original form. Nick
  8. I've been extremely busy this past week, the post office knocked on the door while my better half was home, before she could even come down the stairs the postie had left, taking the package back to the post office, to add insult to injury the slip I need to go pickup the package has vanished, my plan is tomorrow afterwork to go over and see how much fighting it will take for me to get my package. What a week. Nick
  9. Just thought I would correct some info for you........Also Mopars didn't use return lines until much later, just a single 5/16th supply line. Your build is looking very nice so far. Nick
  10. I casted some copies for myself, the wheels are from the Revell '68 Charger and the centers are modified '68 Charger units also. That was the day I carved the pumpkins........I like my Mopars.......
  11. Yeah, I need to fix them, I'd like to replace them with the Missing link units. Something tell me if you would of ordered one in spring '69 that it would of been around March and came with Open black steelies and a fiberglass lift off hood Yes I did use Keith Marks '68-'70 Roadrunner sheet. Yes, a set of Missing Link's Tail lights are on route actually. Thank you everyone, it's my first finished model in over a year, I've been too busy playing with my 1:1 Mopar's to seem to ever get bench time. Nick
  12. Built this one exactly as I would of ordered it in 1968 (well fall of '67), although the white lettered tires were not an option until 1970. I'm sure the original rubber wouldn't have lased very long behind a 3.54 Geared Dana in a Hemi car. The color is PP1 Matador Red that I got my local jobber to mix, wheels and center caps are resin I cast, as is the proper "Hemi Head" Air cleaner, I've tried to finish the car in all correct finishes, I just noticed the blemish on the trunk lid after I took the photo's and will polish it to remove it. The Car is very much me, steel wheels with poverty caps,
  13. Steve, the color is PP1 Matador Red. I saw a Belvedere in this color a few years ago and fell in love with the color, I do believe production in this color was fairly low. Charlie, if it wasn't for learning skills on the 1:1 toys, the little ones may not look as good. I'm not sure I'll be down to NNL east this year as we are planning to go to NC this spring. But I'm sure we'll be down that way at some point. Nick
