I owned a 65 Satellite once. Pretty cars. You did a super job of making this one look stunning. Mine had a Y block 318, not a hemi. That would have been cool.

Thank you Brandon!  There's something I truly like about the styling of the '64-'65 Mopars.  Especially the '65's!

Dude, very cool! Got to thinking that car design would look great as a convertible, not sure if they made them that way.

Quick google shows a pretty sharp covertible.

So Mike - how did that Moebius kit go together?  The Comet I did was superb.

Thanks,

John

Thank you guys!  I thought that the kit went together rather well, but the plastic is still a bit resistant to model glues.  The rear panel came off several times.  I had issues with the Revell hood scoop coming off the hood of the Moebius '65 Belvedere that I built almost two years ago.  I used several different brands of glue and superglues and epoxies before it finally stuck to the hood.  I think the paint helped keep it in place.  I built the Merc Comet last year as well and I had better luck with that kit.  I think the suspension is too high out of the box.  Inverting the front spindles helped lower the front to a more realistic height.

Thank you Mike and Nick!  The song is Planet Clair by the B52s and has been covered by others as well.

That looks SUPER Mike. Wheel/ tire choice, stance, paint and details really bring out the best in this car.
