I tried search around and found nothing, so I try ask here: did anybody do any kit of the 73 Dodge Charger? I just find same year challenger from arii.
Of course 1/24 or 1/25 scale.

Thanks

I'm not 70s American iron specialist, but I remember there was something about Arii kit that made a lot of muscle car builders to choose Revell or Monogram, whoever did that kit as well. FWIW.

MPC did a 1973 Charger as an annual kit. Variations of the kit have been reissued through the years. An original kit will be expensive as it's a collector kit.

Surely with your skills, you just need a good starting point?

Your best bet would be to combine this transkit with the excellent AMT 1971 Dodge Charger kit.

Unfortunately I don't think that resin has been available for years.

I missed out when it was out before. I did manage to get a stock flat hood for the Super Charger reissue (as Ray showed on Ebay link), which was readily available...20 something years ago.

If he (Time Machine) doesn't have it on his Ebay page, don't even think about asking to buy it from him directly, he's got a bad reputation from that. He's fine on Ebay but outside that venue w/no limits, caveat emptor.

That body/roofline is a Charger SE. The '73 annual kit I showed will build a totally stock Charger, but not an SE as there's no vinyl top at all. The wagon body is a custom piece that requires cutting away the decklid. The basic body is pretty much the same as what Freakray showed in his Ebay link.

You can use a mix of '71 Charger from AMT and body, chassi etc from Richard petty '74 Charger from PolarLights
