Monogram's 1/24 scale 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda

January 24, 2019 · in Automotive · · 12 Comments

Pretty much stock out of the box. Had to reshape side window opening and replace drip rail. Kit was way off. Used airbrushed automotive lacquer PPG EV2 "Hemi Orange" paint. Three coats of Testors Clear Coat Lacquer. Wet sanded with 2,000 grit. Polished with Novus plastic polish #2 to a mirror finish! Black flocking for interior carpets. Added Hoses from solder painted with black chrome. Distributor painted tan and drilled 9 tiny holes. Ignition wires very thin wires painted black with super glue to install. Fuel lines are very thin solder. Kit six pack set up was re worked with added throttle linkage and a red return spring made out a single strand of wire strand and painted red. This kit was built by me about 18 years ago!
