So I hurt my back but not one to just lay around I've been keeping myself busy. I had some brilliant black laying around and it had been years since I built a model, so I made this and thought I would share. Just a small replica.

Thanks guys,

It's the AMT 2010 Challenger model. It's what they call a "curbside" model which means it has no engine. Being that I was replicating my SE, the engine didn't matter. A nice kit with a great decal sheet. Unable to photograph it but the interior has a lot of nice details to it.

The only down side was that it didn't have the outlines for the "black out" around the windows so I had to mask and paint it free hand.

Excellent job, it looks very cool sitting in your driveway! AMT also makes a 2010 R/T Classic kit that looks absolutely awesome, a seemingly perfect replica (if you have a Classic that is) I definately wanted to purchase it when I saw it but I did not...maybe Santa Clause will bring me one...now to find some HO paint...

And BlackDodge I grew up in Fort Salonga, went to school @ Kings Park Junior & Senior High-small small world...

I am currently modifying the Boxed "Metal" Maisto 1/18th scale Challenger Concept model to be a mini-me of my Deep Water Blue R/T. Fabulous detail and opening trunk, hood, and steering wheels! $12 right now at Sam's. Couldn't pass it up. It comes in Hemi Orange for those that want to keep it close to stock. I need the rear spoiler though! No spoiler on it. Anybody with the AMT model that wants to make their SE look authentic and send me their spoiler?

Nice job on both models! The AMT kit is very nice. I have not tried the Revell kit yet. Here is one that I did of my car:

Those look great I'm in process of blending that scale model to this 1/24 scale R/C car here is a shot i did before I started working on it.



Here is some of the unfinished body work. I do have a shaker hood for this I may install onto the body not sure. I'll be Using ATM's front spoiler from the actual model and gas cap as well as rear spoiler and mufflers to give the R/C car a more realistic look. Now at car shows can actually run my "mini" challenger around lol. Here are some process pictures the red seeing in side some of the shots is GPM aluminum parts replacing the plastic.
