1969 GTO Judge
Posted by Retro Joe on Friday, March 30, 2018 11:55 PM

Found this old kit on eBay, and won it for $10! Box had been opened, but the only parts that were glued together were the 2 radiator pieces. Everything was complete, including the paints, brush and glue that came with the kit (I threw them out right away, as they are over 20 years old...the kit date is 1996). The clear parts were still sealed in their bag. When the model was almost complete, I made a license plate that said "JUDG NOT," as I figured the Judge decals would be old and unusable. However, they worked perfectly, so I came up with a different license plate. Paint is model master lacquer, and the color is Carousel Red (the Pontiac name for Hugger Orange, which shares the same paint code). Fairly simple kit, with only 68 parts, built in less than 2 weeks. Enjoy!

Looking good, Joe. That's a nice clean Judge, and I love the colour. Nicely done.

I  built one of these in the late 80s and I quite liked the kit, foir a simple kit. It goes together well, but I painted mine with regular testors orange over the orange plastic, which pales in comparison to your great looking paint.

That's another superb looking build, joe. You certainly do justice to the GM muscle cars! Bow

Fantastic build. This kit along with the original Monogram Malibu released in the early '80's are two of my favorites. The bodies are molded beautifully and they have an adequate level of detail. The only real challenge I had with this one was lining up the passenger side of the front bumper with the fender.
