Revell 1/25 1968 Charger

April 8, 2016 · in Automotive · · 9 · 2.8K

's 1968 Dodge RTpainted with Testor's Model Master Dark Bronze Metallic. The engine is a 440 4 barrel painted in Chrysler Engine Blue from Model Master. I added spark plug wiring, heater and vacuum hoses fuel lines and filter, battery cables and clamps and the spring for the hood latch. If you look close you might also see that there's valve stems in the tires. Aircraft modelers might notice the color of the caps on the battery; they're painted with Russian interior blue/green. The color on the rear leaf springs and front suspension arms is cosmoline, a rust preventative coating (maybe if my 96 Ford Bronco had some of that stuff, I'd still have my Bronco 🙁 )

  4. Nice job on another "muscle car" - (wish I had one just like it).

  5. A very cool car, and a great model, the extra detail, especially in the engine bay, makes an exceptional model, wish I could see a picture with the bonnet (oops, I mean hood) down as well.
