This is a model of the last car I owned. The kit comes as the SRT8 but I converted it to an R/T because that's what my car was. I had to redo the front fascia, change the wheels and the engine. At the time there was a Lindberg Charger kit. I got the wheels from it. The engine in that kit was horribly inaccurate and wouldn't fit. So I got a Chrysler 300 R/T kit for the engine, also inaccurate but a little better and I got it to fit, plus the cover hides much of the engine. So here  are some WIP photos to start with:

Here is the STR8 and the R/T engines together:


Here are interior shots:








Here's the bottom:


Here's the finished model:












And here is the 1:1 car when it was brand spanking new:

Nice job of replicating your real car. I also like the model box, but it doesn't distract from the super job you did on the kit.

Thanks everyone. The seatbelts were done with a fine ribbon and PE buckles. I learned how to do the shoulder harnesses from the old Brian's Model Cars tutorial which I have all downloaded before he closed the forum. He made them all available in a .zip file.
