Need help.
Posted by German Armour on Thursday, November 26, 2020 12:43 PM

Hello everyone!

Need some advice and help.

My 1st car kit that I’ve bought is a revell promodeller 1969 dodge daytona.
I want to add detail, like tires and other items but I’m not sure where to look.
Also, would anyone have some other ideas on what I should detail, where the most “bang for the buck” would be?
Thanks.

That kit builds great right out of the box. If this is your first model, I wouldn't worry about adding details.  Build it out of the box, and focus on the basics, getting mold lines on the parts sanded, sanding mold pin marks that are visible on finished surfaces, making sure parts fit properly,  things of that nature.

I have this kit too. It has a ton of extra stuff. But if you must add goodies try these out.

Those will make you spend some cash. Good luck.

Thanks! Good stuff there! I wanted to add tires and rims. tires in the kit aren't the best.

Also, some engine detail to spiff up the model.

Recently bought this kit. There was a very nice build with a few upgrades in one issue of scale auto. I will try to remember to look it up.

The factory stock tires in that kit are actually pretty accurate. At least the ones in the original edition I built when the kit came out. Don't know about the ones for the NASCAR variant.

If I remember correctly this made a pretty good street version but to make a good NASCAR it would take some work (I don't remember what that entails).  I do know that the best NASCAR Superbird/Daytona out there is the long OOP Johan kit.
