Dodge stealth tuner... FINISHED CHECK IT OUT
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, August 12, 2006 10:24 PM
hi guys.. here it is the first part of this (even if it is curbside) great dodge stealth, it has a front and rear bumper from a cougar (modified) also sideskirt..

the wide body is made out by alluminium foil and will take shape soon with putty... the wing is from a revell tuner series kit.. it has aoshima wheels and will have killer interiors..Big SmileCool

here some pics of what i've done so far

Nice, I'm feelin' it! I love the Stealth and 3KGT, especially the AWD twin turbo versions. Nice job on the conversion, I can't wait to see what you're gonna do with the fenders. Which kit is this? I know there is a Stealth somewhere that has an engine...

Are you gonna build a sound system? Wink *wink*

Sounds and looks like a cool project! I have the AMT Stealth buried somewhere within my stash, I may have to dig it out now.

I'll definetly be keeping my eye on this build, keep us posted!!!

Very interesting, cant wait to see the finished product. I think the cougar body kit will turn out good on the stealth.

the AMT versions all have engines and are 1:25. Lindberg did a 1:20 version of it as well with an engine too

Cool build-up you got going there!

Great minds must think alike: Here's one I did about a year ago (without a wide-body kit, of course), using the same rear wing and a set of Aoshima wheels. I built mine from an old AMT 1:25 version with full engine detail. Nothing too crazy, just something you might see on the street.





Edit: Oh, and BTW, I cut that hideous cross bar out of the grille. Gives it more of a Ferrari feel in the nose, I think.

Yeah, the AMT kit's the one I'm thinking of... I've been on the look out for one, haven't had any luck yet. Is this kit FWD or AWD? If it's FWD, you could use the Eclipse transfer case, driveshaft, and rear differential to convert it to AWD. Brad's looks sweet, I remember it from a while back... Someone on AF built a Tamiya 3KGT and stuck the engine form this kit into it, build it as a model of his friend's car... That's what I want the motor for...

Hey matt, are those the rims you will use? I kinda like them...

Yes, that AMT kit is AWD!
I heard that AMT will be re-releasing this one soon, so I've seen a lot of these older issues being dumped on eBay for around $5 plus shipping.

Did this one a few years ago. Not a car you see done up very often. The nose, wing and tail lights are scratch built. This is the AMT kit.

I'm thinking a darker metallic color. I've seen a 1:1 in a dark metallic purplish-maroon that looked really good. Maybe that black-purple metallic, I think it's midnight something? Metallic black is always good...

Then again, you could go for the other end of the spectrum with a nice bright yellow or orange. Red is another color these cars look good in....

That looks hot! Nice job! I like your use of decals, I probably would have gone with something different for the hood, but I still like it. Nice color, too. Did you print the color sponsor decals, or if not, where are they from?

I'll be watching for updates...
