    I used to build model kits for sale professionally so I still look for stuff. I was surfing on ebay this morning because I want to build one of my car, when I found this.

    1970 Dart Swinger Model Conversion Kit

    Its pretty cool and was thinking someone here might be interested in one of these. Note, if you never built a resin kit before, its alittle tricky, but with the right advice, you should be able to do it or hire someone to build it for you.

    Revell made a BEAUTIFUL `69 Dart kit that was re-tooled into a `68. Both versions are very well proportioned and scaled. The `68 is currently availible on the shelves, the `69 is still floating around on e-Bay.

    Please post some of your builds. I haven't built in a while, but I was heavily into it a few years ago hitting all the shows from Mass. to Toledo.

    It's a GREAT wintertime theraphy...

    I got one from A/Fx scale resin. It took forever to get. The
    quality was pretty good. But I think it took over 3 months to
    get it. I ordered the 69 Barracuda notchback with it. I'm
    building that one right now. Lime green with a flat black hood
    and the dual scoop from the 73-74 Dart-Duster.

    FYI all, Highway 61 diecast models will be producing a 1970 Swinger 340, 4speed this winter some time.

    I believe it will be 1:16 scale

      I like your work! The `69 Dart 2-dr post is nice. Where did you get the body? And the beater T/A is too cool!

      Here's another old Mopar for you:

      Here's a quick shot of the upcoming 1/18 1970 Dart Swinger 340 by Highway 61. Keep in mind this is the prototype and some details will be fixed (like the hub caps) before production begins.
