1970 Hemi'Cuda WIP
Posted by OrangeR/T on Monday, July 24, 2017 8:00 PM

I'm really enjoying this new Revell kit, been working on it since the spring. Great detail in this kit and so far the parts all fit together with out much hassle! I went with Testors "Purplelicous" lacquer base with Testors Ultra Gloss Clear over top. The Purplelicious looks almost the same as Testors actual Plumb Crazy Purple, however neither one of them is a perfect match to Chryslers PCP to my eye. So far the body is polished out, chassis is finished, and so is the interior. Working on the big Shaker topped Hemi now! Here's some pics of it so far!!

That is some mighty fine looking work there, Mr R/T.

The white interior and the " PCP " are a perfect combo ! The Hemi orange will pop in the bay too . Slightly biased me though LOL . An old friend had a " Real " ... 1:1 '70 convertible PCP/white top HEMI over here in the UK .... many years ago , sold it and brought a house . And a Harley .. or two.... LOL

Great job on that interior.  The paint job is a real eyecatching smoothy

Thanks Onekabu!

Been foiling the 'Cuda the last couple nights, by far one of the most difficult foil jobs i've done, and i can't say it's my best work unfortiounatly. If there is one gripe about this kit it is the lack of sharp definition of the trim, makes it a nightmare to foil especially around the side windows and front windshield. 3 nights and i still have the tail panel and wheel lips to do!!
