Mopar aftermarket parts
Posted by modelcarjr on Saturday, March 14, 2020 9:48 PM

I am very pleased with my resin purchases from Fireball Modelworks that were also included in the December 2019 Winged Warriors article in SA.

The wheels and dog dishes were reasonable and also fit Goodyear redlines that they also have. The Carter AVS carb (2 carbs were included) has a lot of detail and although it was a little tough to get off the resin block, will be very nice for a Mopar 440 engine. 

The red lines on the tires had to be painted on but once a developed a method it went pretty well. I painted the dog dishes (2 sets and a couple extra) with Gloss Black lacquer and then Alclad in an air brush. I think they worked out OK. There is also a sheet of 8 decals for the dog dish hubcaps. Now I just need a Mopar to build. Hmm.. Here are few pics:

Those Fireball Modelworks parts really have great realism and detail and add so much to a build. Looks like you are committed now, JR! The Revell '67 GTX kits and the Revell '68-'69 Dart kits have great detail to start with and go together well. A little extra detail couldn't hurt........Smile

Thanks, Chucky! Its funny that you should mention the Revell 67 Plymouth GTX kit. That one is in my closet so that may be the one that I use these parts on. But another kit, a Monogram 69 Ford Talladega has been starring at me for a couple of decades so I am going to start on it and then move on to the 67 GTX. Thanks for looking! Cool

Speaking of Mopar aftermarket parts.  I am updating my Dodge Demon, and looking for the "D O D G E" chrome lettering on the trunk lid and hood - and perhaps door handles and the right side front fender Pentastar in photo etched accesories.

Any idea where these may be available?  I can paint over the moldings on the body, but would like to detail these better.

Steve, I don't know what year the Demon is but you might try Model Car Garage for the photo-etched Dodge lettering. Even if they don't have the year or model of your build they may have another set that has the Dodge lettering that you can use. Failing that, I normally foil the letters and then carefully reveal the letters using a Tamiya cotton swab and some lacquer thinner after paint. 

Fireball Modelworks has some great looking resin GM door handles that have to be painted with Alclad. They may work for a Dodge or they may have Dodge Door handles depending on the year. You can e-mail Joseph at fireballmodelworks@gmail.com. He'll answer you in a couple of days as he is very busy with castings. 

As far as the pentastar, I usually either foil or use a Molotow pen to do that. Unless you are building a much larger scale that should do it. Thanks for looking! Cool
