2010 Dodge Charger R/T

The Build

My newest project is one that I have designated a model year for...2010.  There is no model year on the box and for all I know, this is a 2006 model.  This has been in the stash for quite a while and I am building it for a Facebook site group build.  I am using the Testors/Lincoln Mint Dodge Charger and my paint will be Dupli-Color Forest Green Pearl with a grey interior.  I plan on adding some Police bits and pieces to the mix and a change of wheels from the Dodge Charger Police Car kit.  I am including a McNally, Boston PI story called "For A Day".

The Story

It is around 1 AM in the morning and the young man drives his car slowly in a parking lot just across the street from Fenway Park in search for a parking spot close the baseball institution.  Suddenly a car backs out of a space and the two cars collide creating minimal damage to either car.  The young man gets out of his car to inspect the damage as the owner of the other car gets out of his and he is very angry.  They both look at where the two cars hit each other and the owner of the second car reaches into his jacket and pulls a Walther PPK 9mm pistol and shoots the young man.  The young man falls to the pavement dead and the man gets into his car and drives away.

At 5 AM, Lt. Det. Adam Troy gets up from bed and he goes into the shower to start his day.  After he showers and towels off, his wife Natalie knocks on the door and presents his cellphone to him.  Dispatch reports a body was found in a parking lot next to Fenway Park and night detectives are responding.  Lt. Troy has Dispatch call Det. Darvell to respond to the scene.  

McNally will return...

Cool Mike.  Box says 2006.  I built that kit as a miniature version of my 1:1 09.  

 

Thanks,

John

Ilove the color choice for this build.  I think that I may have two of these in my stash, the one you're building an a police version.  I still like the body styling of this model year than the new body styling.  Eagerly awaiting your next posting.

The Story

Lt. Det. Troy drives out to the parking lot across from Fenway Park and he gets out of the car and he inspects that there are plenty of detectives, the coroner and her assistant, the Crime Scene truck and crew.  He hears a siren coming and he sees Det. Steven Darvell racing to a stop and getting out of his Detectives Car with his 32 ounce coffee travel mug, taking a drink out of it and then throwing the travel mug back into his car.  No wonder this guy is a slob!  One of the night detectives comes over with a wallet and hands it to the Lieutenant.  lt. Det. Troy looks through it and he finds $32 in cash, two credit and one ATM card and a business card for someone he knows...McNally, Boston PI

The Build

I assembled the engine, transmission and painted a few other parts.  Once I clean out the paint booth, I will start painting some of these parts with spray cans.

The Story

Lt. Det. Troy pulls out his cellphone and he calls McNally and asks that he come down to the parking lot near Fenway Park to identify the corpse.  Det. Darvell walks over to update the Lieutenant and he sees McNally's card in Shawn Whittaker's wallet and asks if Lt. Det. Troy had called him.  Adam is getting upset with Det. Darvell's poor attitude towards McNally and tells him he should show more gratitude towards someone who has helped solve a few cases when Darvell couldn't.  Darvell says that McNally has messed up a few cases which is not the truth and then Adam yells at him and he apologizes and he waddles away from the Lieutenant looking for more clues and he doesn't find any.  A short while later and McNally arrives on the scene and he is ushered in.

The Build

One of the things I don't like about this kit and it varients is the transmission and the engine are two different items and they are mounted in the chassis that way.  I added a piece of .020 inch thick styrene between the two and glued them together and place them in the chassis.   A perfect fit!
