1971 Duster


Recommended Posts

Guess this is the next victim on the bench out of the bunch I have going, lol. Went with Testors Lime Ice green with a light green interior. This is an older version of the kit ( AMT/Ertl , red box art), and unfortunately, the decals silvered. The side stripes aren’t so bad, but the hood decal looks kinda, no, really crappy, but it’ll have to do. Any who, here’s some pics of where I’m at with it.

I agree with Carl! I really like the interior color! There must be an issue with those decals. I built one years ago and had the same problem. Maybe age? I painted the strobe stripe on the hood and later used the side stripe decal from the MPC '75 Dart.

I always put a few drops of Elmers white glue in my decal water...

Thanks guys.

Tom, thanks for the offer, but at this point, I’m gonna run with it, I cleared it, and the whole decal silvered, so at least it’s uniform looking, lol.

for those that asked, here is a pic of the paint I used for the interior, and a few more progress pics.

thanks for looking in,
