Didn't take long (by my standards at least) to get this one completed. As suggested by the restoration tag, this one is a restoration of a build first done about 30 years ago back when I was barely a teenager. The kit itself is a snap together (Snap-Loc in Tamiyaspeak), and I understand is based on a radio-controlled model. That would certainly explain the way that it only has about 20 pieces excluding the motor, and half of those are in the wheels and axles! So not a challenge then, perfect for a younger builder building up kits quickly. The real thing ran in this livery at Le Ma
Time for the RFI thread on my 1982 Dodge Charger. If you would like to see the build thread it's here: To summarise, this was the first 1/24 kit I ever built, over 30 years ago when I was about 9 or so. It's a snap-together kit, so no glue first time around, nor paint originally and it was the first ime I every used water-slide decals. Needless to say, the build was pretty typical of a car built by a child, not helped by the silver paint added 3 or 4 years later: After five months building a Trabant, I decided it was a good time to look at rebuilding this
It seems as though there is a lot of Dodge Chargers around this section of the board, and as luck would have it that's what my next project is However, this one isn't quite the same as most of the others around. Generally, when you say Dodge Charger, most people would think of the classic muscle car similar to the General Lee. A few may well think of the modern version, but either way you're probably thinking of a big V8. What you're probably not thinking of is a 2.2 litre 4-cylinder hatchback from 1982, but Monogram's version of that particular version of the Dodge Charger was my
A quick holiday build, starting with the Polar Lights 1/25 Ford GT snap kit. The main visible difference between the super-tuned 720 Mirage and the "basic" Ford GT is the lack of a rear bumper, which leaves the back end rather more open. And lots of cool black detailing... The dash responds well to a bit of detail painting I took most of the chrome off everything, leaving only the supercharger body (which, although it is more powerful on the Mirage, is also chrome plated like the original equipment) The wheels end up like this. If I was even more shortsighted than I
