1972 Dodge Sportsman
Posted by arcturus on Sunday, May 24, 2020 1:31 PM

This was a bit of a glue bomb that I bought off Ebay. Not as perfect as I'd of liked but then again with gluebombs, you rarely get perfection when rebuilt. 

Still, a nice addition to extensive model collection.
Not alot to report really, box stock, (what was left of the box) Hubcaps where plain plastic so I molotowed them. Added an Antennea, modelhaus tyres.

I'm building the same kit, slowly. Doing a camperized version of my aunt and uncle's ' 73, with extended roof. Yours is gorgeous, just the way they looked new! Bow

Love it. So rarely do you see these built perfectly stock. Nice build.

Yes I looked at them all and with a sheet of baremetal foil in one hand....discarded the foil and decided to use a molotow chrome pen. The thought of foiling all those windows made feel like giving up model making.
