I'm off to order a 2012 Challenger now ...... & damn the bills ! LOL

Good choice. Plastic doesn't stick around forever, but bills never seem to go away. They will still be there when you get around to them Wink

The AMT 1:25 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T classic ( Go on then , what plastic bit is the classic then ?? LOL) arrived by Mr Amazon today . It has the words " Showroom replicas " on the box ! BONUS ! It's a basic snap fit style kit , with very nice decals and detailing . No engine what so ever , just a sheet of plastic to stick the hood/bonnet to . I've matt blacked the entire underside & some interior parts and will splodge some molotow chrome on the exhausts when it eventually dries , I've finally got two 1m.m. pens , and they seem to like turning my hand into Terminator 2 baddie ! Grrrr ! Unsure as to the colour choice as of yet (I have Silver & Orange rattle cans at my disposal) I'd like to do a Toxic Orange Pearl one , like my Floridian hire car previously mentioned ... The wheels are like large diameter ARE's so not the same as "my" rental .... I'm liking the silver option with the R/T stripes in black . It will match my 68 R/T Charger if nothing else ! Decision made then . Silver 'n' black....

Is that the same orange as the Focus RS ( or as my dad says A--E !) I have a VW "Brilliant Orange" ..... The silver has a nice scale flake to it , when its sprayed cleared will look sweet .

As long as you choose a color from the brochure, it's all good. ;)

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

I WAS sooooo close !Bang HeadBang HeadBang Head ( deleted expletives !)

I put the 90% finished model up on a high shelf "out of harms reach......" It looks like harm has longer arms than I thought ! Angry ... as my uplighter decided to part company with its weighted base  Indifferent and knock the challenger off onto the floor ! The hood has evaporated SoapBox , probably hiding with all the singular socks somewhere , so , out with the evergreen sheet and scissors ... A slight cautious waft with a cigarette lighter and then I shaped the windscreen end & corners by rubbing down the side of my temporary worktable

Well , it fits the gaping hole rather nicely . but it's still just a flat piece at the moment... I will be making a 426 drag pak 5 inch high " T/A " scoop add a raised centre section as per the 1:1 & find some sicks & wheels ( Or some modern pro stock style's to suit .) 

 

I think the word I am looking for is BUGGER !

( Yes... I've looked EVERYWHERE for the damned thing , No , I didn't keep calm or avoid swearing like a drunken trooper ...Zip it! )

I have researched Drag Pak Challengers ( Ohh the black one looks mean !) and seen a Ramchargers one , but , as mines already silver , I think a certain Mr Landy might get a brand new ride !!

" WISH ME LUCK......." Sigh

Good news ! Whilst replacing one of my brushes into its container ( a 2 1/2 inch glass cup ) I found the hood ( I'd guess its around 2 7/16ths Surprise ) ... It was tightly fitted inside and was completely upright . The next step is to re do the interior as the awful "economy matt black paint"  had not blended correctly and after a month was still tacky . A rub over with a tiny amount of white spirit on kitchen towel and back to square one . PHEW ! Luck was on my side for a change . ( Not to jinx it , I bet the interior will melt with the white spirit now LOL )

Just a little top up Smile, Wink & Grin

I only have two things to finish doing now . 1) Small decals -like the Challenger side scripts (the R/T stripe & Hemi ones went on with out a hitch Indifferent )  & "front & rears" 

& possibly re chrome the circumference of the tail lights.... 

and 2) .... find the Oops ...damn battery charger for my digital camera . " Its in a box" Super Angry

Regarding the Drag Pak (2012??) version I have found these decals :-

I like the "426" Drag Pak version the best with the strobe hockey stick style stripes , now to replicate the "Fat T/A scoop" Mischief
