  • 1970 Dodge Challenger #77 Sam Posey Trans-am Restored

    Hi Guys,
    I thought I would show my 1970 Dodge Challenger driven by Sam Posey in the Trans-Am series. I built this car over 10 years ago & I believe was one of the first 1/25 cars I built when I switched over from 1/32. Over the many years Ive been messing around building cars, Ive changed the way I do things & generally gotten better at building. Last year I decided I wanted to build another one of these as this car was not up to the standard I wanted these days & as one of my favourite race cars I wanted to do it justice. Instead last month I ended up pulling the car out & updated a few things & it made a huge difference. I changed over the wheels & tires, Bare metal foiled around the windows, changed the front spoiler, added in headlight inserts, touched up the paint work in a few areas & generally just tidied up a few things. Here it is & ready for the next 10 years.

    I actually like it now & looks much better than it used to. Sure its still not how I would build it now but Im happy with it. Few things like moving the gas filler to the back, not flaring out the guards were things I couldn't do without repainting the whole car. Ive now started building the sister car, #76 with a more accurate MPC body so it will be good to see it finished compared to this one.

    This car is a Revell 1/25 body, MJK Chassis, Plaifit Fox2 motor, H&R wheels, The Parts Box Minilite resin inserts, my own cast urethane tires, Model Master Sublime Paint, Tamiya TS-13 Clear, Tamiya Flat black, Decals I designed myself & possibly Matt may have printed cant remember.

        Had to find footage of this in action...obviously raced harder than this in reality but it'll do.

          Looks fantastic by the way, and the outdoors shot adds lots!

          Doing mirror mods to cars built over the last ten years as well, even a nice new wax job brightens things up.

          Goal is to keep new purchases down and enjoy what’s in the fleet now!
