    I haven't built a model car in 30 years, used to build the heck outta them as a kid/teenager
    Anyhow, at the beginning of the covid crisis I ordered several models to pass the time during quarantine, but turned out we were only closed for a week, so I'm slowly going through the stack of boxes, some have received more detail than others, I was going to patina the old ford truck, but once I saw it with the whitewalls, I decided that was going to be my "Friday night goin to town truck" 20200717_212041.jpg 20200717_212138.jpg 20200717_212150.jpg 20200717_212407.jpg 20200717_212235.jpg 20200717_212025.jpg
    And not to worry there's a 71 duster, along with a 66 charger and 67 GTX in the works
    Just one pet peeve, why do they think every MOPAR had a hemi?
    Give me a 413, a 318 poly, I'd even settle for a /6

      I used to build a lot of em but haven’t in years but I do keep building my stock up so when I get back to them I’ll have plenty to keep me busy.

      I saw a 69 Dart GTS model kit for sale at Carlisle Chrysler Nats.
      But doesn't $100 seem a bit steep?

      not if it's a vintage kit, I want the Johan 62 cadillac vintage kit, about$300 on ebay, I don't want it that bad LOL

      Revell-Monogram 1968 Dodge Hemi Dart 2'n1 Plastic Model Car Kit 1/25 Scale #854217
      hobblinc sells a 68 hemi dart
      I'm trying to find a 30s or 40s dodge to do a "copperhead road" diorama, but all I can find is a Plymouth, that may have to do, only a dyed in the wool mopar man would know the difference between a 39 Plymouth and Dodge, and it even comes with coca cola cases that could easily become moonshine

      The latest in the collection 20200730_192343.jpg was going for the sleeper look, not quite finished, but close enough to go on the shelf
      20200730_192402.jpg
      This one I went all out on because the kit had a lot of detail
      20200730_192425.jpg
      Exhaust still needs connected, but I do have brake and fuel lines
      20200730_192515.jpg
      Look at the decals for gauges, came with the kit, but talk about a pain to get on right
      20200730_192611.jpg
      And coming soon........
