    This is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m goung to recreate my car in 1:25 scale. It involves a bunch of work and I’m sure I’ll be asking for suggestions.

    Here’s my car I’m going to recreate in 1:25.

    As you can see this is no small task.

      Here’s where I’ve started. I purchased a 73 Resin cast model and also a 1971 AMT Duster kit.

      I’ve also purchased a 6.1 Hemi in resin and purchased a viper engine/trans combo.

        Next I needed to remove the NAG1 trans molded into the 6.1 Hemi. I also needed to clean up the resin as it’s got a bunch of molding flash.

        The last photo is a model I worked in years ago but never finished. It’s a 440 dressed in detail.

          I'm on the hunt for wheels to match mine (as close as possible) and a snorkel hood or scoop. Then I'll be needing help deciding on other things. Any suggestions to keep me going?

          I don't have any suggestions to keep you going, only encouragement.

          I have wanted to do this for years, less to duplicate a car I am still working on and more to created a visual to keep me working on it and remind me of the (hoped) finished product. Plus, it would give me something to do during the winter when I can't work on it as I don't have a garage.

          Love it. Keep it up!

          Wow! What a cool idea. Way cheaper this time around huh! That Hemi is more cost effective in resin form LOL!
          Keep up the post.
          Looks good.

          You don't even know. The resin version was a whopping $10 shipped. I'll get more done when I decide what primer and paints I'm going to use. I hate Testor's as they are so thick.

          Competition Resin's for the 73-76 Body. It needs a lot of work but it's really the only place to find an actual 73-76 Duster. The grill is wrong for mine but I'm hoping to find one or make one.

          The engine was found on ebay.

          Tiday I took the very limited time I had and filled the resin holes with green stuff two part modeling clay.

          Should be able to mount and prime soon!

          Nice.

          I have a 90% complete model of my '86 CS Daytona that I started when I still had the car about '93.
          I had to do a LOT of mods to convert it to a T top.

          About the only thing left to do is fabricate the actual T bar.
          Last month I bought a set of smoked T top sections from ebay.
          Most progress in 25 years!
