Hi friends,

Well, this is a project I've been working since 2008, and after many pauses, I decided to finish building this model.

The Dodge Charger is a car that means a lot to me. My father had a 1974 Dodge Charger, and then it was my car. My adventure with the Dodge Charger, lasted until 1989 because I had an accident with that car and I could never repair. I was a crazy twentysomething.:evillol:
I dream of having another Charger but now live in Spain, and with fuel prices, it is impractical to have a muscle car in this country.
This is an MPC kit hard to find and I bought on Ebay several years ago. I have done many customizations, I added some improvements and some scratch building.
I made ​​pictures of the process, but many (over 180). So we will resume the process in a few pictures. It is still not finished, but I've built so far.

Friend, thank you very much for your words. The model will be completed in the coming days. I just need to make some adjustments in the hood, fix the windows and scratch build the outside rearview mirrors because the model are not included. I just saw your post, and you have some very impressive work. I've seen your SUNOCO Camaro, the Jaguar, and the very remarkable work of Sport Corvette. Incredible!

Best regards, from Valencia - Spain

Fantastic build, good to see one of these being built! I have the same kit, along with the 1/16 69 Charger, and am using them to build both an STP '74 Petty Charger (my favorite as a child) and a custom '69 along the Steve Stroppe lines of resto-mod. I can't wait to see your's complete!!!
