I still have a 71 Hemi Cuda car model i bought one time from Hobby Lobby years ago but never put it together.

 

Just wondering if anyone else has put one together and how did it turn out? What model paint did you use? Etc

Out of several possible kits, which one did you buy? If we tell you about foibles in an AMT kit you're not going to find them in a Revell. A photo of said kit would be extra helpful as different issues of the same kit have, well... different issues. :)

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. :)

If it is the kit that I am thinking of, I have built several.  It is a 1/24 scale kit made by Monogram and it has simple assembly.  The tooling for this kit is old which has resulted in the simple assembly.  Monogram and Revell have released this kit in hardtop and convertible versions.  The hardtop has also been released as a street machine version with the dual scoop hood, rear spoiler and custom wheels.  The convertible has been released as the Nash Bridges 'Cuda convertible from the TV series and as just a stock Hemi 'Cuda convertible.  I will not discuss the much-maligned 1970 AAR 'Cuda.  

I built mine adding ignition wiring to the Hemi (very easy to do) and cut off the drving lights and their mounts and attach the lights just below the bumper.  The exhaust tips were replaced with aluminium tubing shaped more like the 1:1 'Cuda with larger openings.  I painted mine with Model Master paints.

There you go. That's all you had to say in your first post. Revell '71 Cuda. Now that it's known which kit you mean it will be MUCH easier to help you if anyone still feels like it. Thanks for being a complete ass when all I wanted to do was frikkin help you!
