Mopar Power!
Posted by Slabbedask on Sunday, March 28, 2004 9:58 AM
Although I have a particular fondness for VW's and old Hot Rods, I try to build at least one factory stock US car each year. Usually this is some sort of muscle car. So is this one, that I built two or three years ago. It's Revell's '69 Charger, the regular edition. It's built with Dodge's "White Hat" option package, just without the whitewalls. Paint is my favorite Mopar colour, Plum Crazy, this time a base/clear job from PPG. I also used most of an MCG detail set on it. As usual I didn't go overboard with the engine detailing, because I think model car engine bays can quickly become too messy with too much wiring. So just the basic, the things you would notice first when you open the hood.

I just had to go to your fotki site for a closer look....Very Nice!!!
Do you have any interior shots from the build out? From what I can see in the big photos, it looks as nice as the exterior and engine compartment!

For those of you who do not know this, if large images are loaded on Fokti and the owner allows it, you can see a very large image by clicking "get original photo" link below the opened image. In th lower right hand corner will be a directional thingy that will enlarge the photo to mx size.
I reccomend everyone try it and look at this one!!

very well done, and i agree about the engine wiring. too much can be distracting, yours is PERFECT!

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Very nice! I also agree that sometimes too much wiring can become distracting from the overall cleanliness of the model. In the case here it appears that there is just enough wiring to enhance the model. Great job!Smile

nice job on the charger. I have this kit as well. I did the engine in chrysler engine blue and it turned out very nice. Then of course I messed up the paint. Problem solved no more painting with testor cans. I got a airbrush and compressor. But anyways nice job.
