New to the site, not to modeling
Posted by JohnsMopar on Friday, March 22, 2019 11:06 AM

Hello, been doing this since I was about 10, way back in 1963. I started out with AMT 3 in 1 kits then Revell, Monogram, Lindberg, Hawk and anything I could get a hold of. I had done a lot of aircraft, thought I might get back into cars. I did do a lot of Revell 1/24 NASCAR models and prefer muscle cars and hot rods. I myself prefer Mopar, my first car was a 1970 Dodge Dart, then a new off the showroom floor '73 Roadrunner and then a new '74 Plymouth Duster. I am going to try a Revell 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 to get back into cars then want to attempt the new Revell 69 Dodge Charger Daytona NASCAR and hopefully get a hold of an old AMT 1974 GTX or Roadrunner and try to recreate my 1973 Roadrunner with a 360 automatic with a slapstick.

Welcome to the forum, John. Mopars are very popular on the forum so you’re in good company. Enjoy.

Welcome from another Mopar fan, John! I'm sure you'll enjoy the recent new releases with crisp details and good proportions. Any of the Revell Dart kits ('68-'69) build up very well as does the Revell '67 GTX and I highly recommend all of them. The '68 Hemi Dart kit offers several build options and is probably the best "bang for the buck" in Mopar kits. Have fun!
