I just finished this Lindberg snapper.  I needed to complete a build to get my creative juices flowing again, so here it is.  There are actually a few 1:1 cars in my area that look like this.

The paint is Spaz Stix color-shifting lacquer, over Alclad primer.  It's hard to see from the pics, but it shifts from blue to brown to purple.  I was in a hurry and sprayed the Alclad on a humid day, and now am getting a little blush through the top coat:(.  It was built for fun anyways, not a contest build.

The wheels and brake rotors are from a Charger SRT kit, with homemade axle tubes made from 1/4" aluminum tubes.  The wheels actually rotate inside the tubes.

The kit glass is horrible. The black areas are oversized and make it look like an armored car.  The quarter window clear area was so small that I ended up painting the entire quarter window black.  If I had to do it over, I'd make my own windows.  Otherwise, the kit went together pretty nicely.
