68 Dart Drag Car WIP
Posted by keavdog on Thursday, April 2, 2020 2:58 AM

Starting this one.  Revell kit with a lot of options - but of course I'm going for the AF/X factory drag car version.  Cut out the wheel wells and mocked up because I had to!  I plan on adding a bit of wiring to the engine otherwise box stock.  Color will be testors GoMango - cause it looks so good

 

 

Thanks,

John

I have this kit as well. I have a candy orange on the shelf slotted just for this ride. I will be looking forward to watching you build yours.

This is a bad ass kit. I've got two of these in the stash and simply can't wait to get one on the bench. I've got a couple of different decal options for it too. Very nicely detailed out kit and these build up great. Watching bro......

Good progress on that A990 John! The natural "lay" of those wires looks spot on.

Bit more work on the 426.  Each motor I'm wiring a bit more.  This one is wired to the coil as well as plugs.  Baby steps.  Also did a pin wash on this one so she's a bit dirty.  Need another coat of white on the oil filter but getting there.

 

Thanks,

John

That Hemi looks like the "bee's knees" John. Awesome work on that and love the routing and natural "lay" that the ignition wires have. Good stuff man.Yes

Looking good, John.

One of these days, you guys will have to walk me through detailing an engine. Something I always wanted to do since I was a kid and never tried.

Y'all sure make them look convincing.

My first 'baby' way back when was a Plum Crazy '71 'Cuda with a 426. That throaty rumble never leaves your soul....Big Smile
