Thank you gentlemen for all the words of support. Today I have the three main parts together and i'll have to give the engine base a bit of the weathering treatment as it looks a bit out of place being so clean.




I'm really enjoying the weathering process.

Great finish, as usual, sir. And nicely detailed underside.

I'd nearly leave it alone Mr H.

The story is the engine and box has just gone back into the car after some work, it was steam cleaned when it was out!

Very impressive work, the shading on the chassis and the detail on the engine is outstanding.

Well, that's my weathering experiment over with. I can safely say that this car has been well driven and I've learned quite a bit.






Regards fellow modellers.

The road dirt on that car looks perfect. Well done.

Some nice weathering there D but methinks the sump could do with a few scratches/chips.

Ah, you see the engine has been removed, refurbished and steam cleaned then dropped back in. To be honest I wouldn't know where to start with chipping.

Hi all, getting near the end now. I had to re-adjust the ride height at the back twice.








Just need to get the final details in the engine and finish the roof.

Love that classic high stance of the Charger. Outstanding job.

If I might ask - why did you leave the roof finishing for the end? I'd fear getting overspray on the glass or lifting the BMF with masking. Do you have a secret?

Hi Mike, there was a lot of work to do on the underside after the body was put on the chassis, so spending that much time on It's back was just going to damage any paint I might have put on first. The roof, which is a kind of fabric effect has been partially painted by brush in Matt black first so the BMF could go on and the glass to be put in and the last thing I do will be to finish the roof via brush. I only reserve spraying strictly for bodywork.
