Hi Everyone!
Had quite fun building this one... Amt's 1970 Dodge Super Bee kit. After googling some images I decided to have a go on this one. Hope you like it, and please feel free to comment!
Cheers,
Nuno.

That is a fine looking example of a Muscle car. Great job.

Nice job with the paint color and the blacked chrome. I don't personally like big wheels, but they do make it on this updated Bee.

Very cool with the tinted windows and I like the paint too!

Nuno, I'm not usually a fan of blacked out bumpers & trim. This is an exception, really works well.

Cheers,

Chris

Plenty potent.  Excellent engine work and nice decals.  Thumbs up on a large one.

X2. Usually don't like wheels like that, but they work well.

Nice clean build. I'm not a MOPAR fan so I have to ask, has the body been raised or it that the normal stance?

Hi,
Thank you so much for your kind words.

@JohnJ, yes the rear had to be raised for I replaced all of the leaf suspension with coil springs (taken from a pen) and new shocks made of chrome tubing (taken from an old radio antenna). I'll post a few pics soon.
Cheers,
Nuno.

I like the paint scheme, the oversized wheels not so much.
