Mpc 1971 Plymouth Cuda


Recommended Posts

I'm using the rear pan from the yellow AMT Snap Fast Cuda kit as it fits the rear of my '71 annual better than the original part. What I've done here is opened up the exhaust with a drill and needle files. I used my panel scriber to define the opening a little bit more. The plan is to BMF the exhaust tips once the pan is painted and wash in some black around the "opening" of the pan.

You might recall from earlier postings how I mastered these taillights from the Revellogram 1:24 scale chrome parts. The MPC '71 Cuda annual (and Johan Cuda) have a clear red taillight with a molded in backup lens. I drilled and filed out the molded in piece and modified the Revell parts to fit. The new pieces were sent to Reliable Resin for casting in clear and clear red resin.

Here's a before pic:
