Getting close now!! Finished up all the foil trim work, and the body is now permanently over the chassis! If you haven't built one of these kits the only issue with assembling the body over the chassis is you have to leave the engine not glued in so that you can raise the engine up in order to fit the radiator core support with radiator and fan shroud installed, it will not clear the fan on the engine with the engine in place. Kind of a pain, but the engine does set down just fine with out glueing the mounts. Otherwise, the fit and finish of this kit is fantasitic, Revell has really stepped up the game!

That is a very impressive interior, especially the woodgrain and trimwork.

Got the Hemi built out and the body wet sanded and polished! Since the car is a resto-mod, i made a custom fuel rail for the carbs and i'm using the custom air-cleaner left over from the 'Cuda kit. Also added throttle linkage and springs. I'm mounting the ignition coil on the inner fender which is why it's not on the engine itself...

Looks real good, OrangeR/T!  I used the same paint on my '70 Charger R/T.

Been hard at work on the interior!! It's all wrapped up except for the firewall with the pedals attached, still need to piant/clear the firewall. I detailed the door panels with bare metal foil and a Molotow Chrome pen. The console i'm particularly proud of, the kit comes with really nice wood grain decals, i used the molotow pen for the top trim, some thin strips of bare metal foil for the side trim, and i found some chrome hood pins in my parts box that i sanded down to make the interior courtesy lights on the console sides, dab of white in the middle with the clear window glue to mimick lenses. I think it worked! I did not used the supplied decal for the dash, i like to paint the details myself. Here it is...

I agree. That is going to look nice. The color combo gives me some ideas for some future builds.

1970 Hemi Charger R/T Resto-Mod (Finished! O/D pics!)
Posted by OrangeR/T on Thursday, May 02, 2019 8:08 PM

Well i've got yet another Mopar muscle machine on the bench, Revells '70 Charger R/T! This idea has been rattling around in my head for a while now, even as i was building the Panther Pink Duster! After several OEM style builds, i need to do a mild restomod!! I wantd a medium dark blue so i'm using Testor's "De Ja Blue" Lacquer, looks almost black in some angles, pops really nice in brighter light! The red hood stripes are Model Master Italian Red lacquer, and i plan on using a red bumble bee stripe around the tail end!! Interior will be red as well, i think the color combo is pretty bold, but i think will look great in the end!! The wheels and tires are left over from the newest Revell '70 Hemi'Cuda 2'n'1 kit, same pinned suspension so they fit perfectly! I did add some plastic under the rear springs to raise the back end up tad, i think it would have been a tail dragger if i didn't, looks fairly level now in my mock up! Here's what i got so far, gonna be a rainy weekend so i should get the body into paint sometime.
