      Model of my 1964 Polara 4-door hardtop. Canadian model with Sport Package bucket seats and console. As another poster said, it is hard to replicate a 4-door car. On mine, the roof on the donor 1964 2-door hardtop model is totally different than the 4-door. I had to graft on a top from the 1963 Fury hardtop kit and replicate the side trim.

        Pictures of my 1967 R/T model and 1/18 die cast. I had to do an engine swap on the die cast,as it came with a Hemi. I also added Torque Thrusts and red lines.

          Here is a model of a 1969 SuperBee I bought new. My car was not an A-12, but a 383, automatic SuperBee. I acquired a real Six Pack hood for it and ran that. Since my car was originally a Ram Air car, it had the large oval orange air cleaner. Viewed through the air scoop, it was enough to scare the Ford and GM guys away as being the real thing.

              It looks very authentic. I am working on a 1:16 Petty 73 Charger and am trying to detail the carb.

                I still have hundreds of old model cars I built as a kid boxed up in storage and dozens of new sealed unopened kits still waiting to get built someday.

                  I used Tamaya panel line accent to detail it.
                  I mostly use the black, but I have the brown and grey for mimicking dirt and oil stains.

                    Have any of you put together a complete 1966 Coronet model?
                    I know there are very few options out there ( if any )
                    And what was your process, How did you go about getting the parts? Modified other kits? I'd like to put together a 1966 Coronet 440 2dr HT Hemi build for a model of my car.
                    Thanks, JK

                    There is a resin 66 Coronet 2D sedan kit but it is pricey and not 100% detail wise.

                    That's it.

                    My plan was to use the 67 R/T kit and swap on the resin 66 grill and deck lid/tail panel.

                    You should have seen me using filler and sanding the 66 Charger body rear wheel wells to look like Coronet openings before that 67 R/T kit came out.

                    Maddening.

                    Repairing rust or dents in that area in 1:1 scale is very difficult.

                    1/25 was.........maddening.

                      Model of my race car. Kit bashed from the Ramchargers model and of course a 62 Dart.
