Pic Test 1: Foose Challenger SRT8
Posted by JDCustoms on Sunday, October 15, 2017 10:44 PM

Since this is a pre deco kit, I wanted to incorporate some classic thinking into the car. First off is going with a mostly white interior since it compliments the color scheme better than the standard black that seems to dominate modern interiors these days(I'm gonna contradict myself that on other builds). I painted the engine Hemi orange which sadly can't be seen thanks to modern design with all the plastic covers and shields. Finally, as much as I like the wheels, I felt that haing the spokes painted gunmetal grey brought out the detail better than straight up chrome.

Yeah I did a copy and paste of the pictures off my Facebook page as I'm trying a method of posting pictures on here without having to go through Photobucket or other paid photo sharing services.

Nice job on that. It is a shame how the engines are pretty well invisible on the new cars

I like that a LOT!
Too bad Revell didn't engineer better 'stance' into these kits. Some of them look like they're on lube racks... 
At this years SEMA Show there will be some companies introducing custom,. paintable, direct replacement engine covers for modern muscle cars. It's about time!

I had often wondered why they put those covers on the engine.  My first thought was just to cover up what I thought was an ugly engine.  Now I hear that it is to help with the noise, vibration, and harshness.
