14. March at 06:27:54
Tim Heimer Thank you lode. when I went yo that model show a few weeks ago I brought that in to show the guy who makes the cases for me to see and had 3 people who wanted to buy it, especially after I played the sound clip for them.

Duane Rowland sounds like you guys are young whipper snappers lol !
16. July at 01:34:48
Duane Rowland Tim, wasn't the Dirty Mary Crazy Larry Charger a 1968 ?
16. July at 01:39:54
Bob Hall Yes, They are ! I found a Picture of them together ! That's Munkey on the left and Tim on the right discussing lead ! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

16. July at 01:43:45
Tim Heimer Duane, it was mostly the 69's, but used a 68 in one scene, the color is Citron yella, but some claim it's sublime green. Also we have a joke going, A ford guy (Bob) and a GM guy ( me) and a Mopar guy ( Monky) walk into a bar. Hey Bob where did you go? You're not in the picture!
16. July at 02:47:02
Bob Hall I'm writing parking tickets to a Mopar and a GM out in the parking lot !
16. July at 02:58:04
Tim Heimer LOL! With us being turtles a parking ticket would be all you could give us! LOL!
16. July at 03:59:52
Dominik Weitzer Looks like the pumped up the 1/25 to 1/16 with all the "correctness" ;) . i'm a fan of those MOPARs. cool!

12. July at 00:24:25
Tim Heimer Some of those colors are making a come back lately!
12. July at 00:46:52

12. July at 01:28:07
Tim Heimer LOL Bob! I'm staying out of Texas now that I know you're out there! LOL
12. July at 01:36:05
Chris Parsons Best... maybe weirdest part was how the charger ran all through the move and turned into a Torino the instant it hit the train!
16. July at 04:07:28
Tim Heimer Not the pictures I have. I know on Vanishing point when it hit the bulldozers it turn into another car. In fact I read how they did the train scene with pulleys and a cable under the tracks to get the shot. They did screw up and used a 68 for a chase scene. Check this out Although there is a debate on weather it was Citron yella or Sublime green.
16. July at 04:14:55
Bob Hall Yeah ! Vanishing Point it was a Camaro at the end, Not sure about the Torino.

15. July at 10:00:59
Tim Heimer Thanks Christian, much appreciated! I've put this one on hold a bit and went back to some others that I put on hold. OMG I'm getting that incomplete molders illness! Help! LOL
15. July at 12:24:33
Christian W I know, I know. My cabinet has a lot of started model kits. Too much :D. The modellers life *lol*
15. July at 20:17:15

11. July at 22:47:10 Share
Munkyslut I've been after that MPC Street Charger for ages! Are you combining both kits? This I REALLY want to see!
11. July at 22:58:51
Chris Parsons Looking good, I had one, the real (full size) car had the engine offset to the right side by a few inches to make allowances for the steering gear....(just a car guy on his soap box)
11. July at 23:11:47
Tim Heimer Yes I'm combining the engine from the 73 to the 69, I've made the 70 grill which has to be finished as well as blending the fenders in to make the F&F charger 1/16 scale. I bought the Crager 5 spokes and used tires from another kit. The 73 I made the proper side mirrors for since the car comes with no mirrors at all! Like the Dukes car the 73 and the DMCL car will have my 440 heads and intake on them with a carb and air cleaner.
11. July at 23:12:55
Munkyslut I can't wait!
11. July at 23:18:27
Munkyslut Chris, I had a Sublime 71 with a 383 & a Torqueflite, lovely old bruiser it was, solid 13.00 sec car
11. July at 23:21:46
Chris Parsons Munkyslut- I loved those old B and RB engines....except the 400... most were suitable for boat anchors only I don't know what Mopar did to the design but the 400 didn't make power, perform or have longevity. But the 383 and 440 were monsters! Then there was the 426 max wedge with 440 heads....destroyed tires as fast as you could install them.
Sorry for diverting the topic
Back to you Tim
12. July at 00:31:07
Tim Heimer Chris, no problem you're right about that!
12. July at 00:43:48
Lode Schildermans What a detail on such a small model. Great work so far, Tim
12. July at 05:06:37
Slavo Hazucha Looking great Does the hose from the Nitro bottle even have structure? Nice :)
12. July at 05:36:52
Tim Heimer These pics where to show how far I've gone with this project since I've realized how many unfinished projects I have. I was working on the 73 street charger and somehow a friend talked me into the Dukes of hazard, then while building that saw the potential of the F&F charger! So I finished General Lee and went to something else, then remembered Dirty Mary crazy Larry and started on that all the while molding parts for all of them. So to answer your question Slavo not yet. LOL! I just made the proper nitro decals, the tank does have a mount, there are other hoses that need to be added ect. The trunk hinges and hood/bonnet cut out have taken some time to work out. Thank you for the comments.

Tim Heimer Again Revell disappoints me with the lack of thought put into this model. They come so close to a great kit and then give up.
27. June at 14:55:43
Martin Oostrom The blue looks very nice. What are the issues?
29. June at 13:11:04
Tim Heimer The Decal sheet is grossly inadequate! Engine compartment and exhaust are generically cheesy. It's an o.k kit but I've seen better from Revell.
29. June at 13:58:16
Munkyslut Good choice of subnet, I'm a massive Mopar E body fan, don't get much better than a 71 Hemi 'Cuda tho.
I see what you mean about the Revell moulding faults tho, that front grille & head light surround just doesn't look right.
29. June at 16:20:06
Bill Newcomer I agree about the headlight rings. It makes them look like binoculars. If I remember correctly, I installed mine setback some to lessen the effect. 1971 Sublime Hemi Cuda | Album by musclecarfan
29. June at 16:36:18
Tim Heimer O.k more pics coming tomorrow. Included will be finished dash with decals and turn signal lever, engine with plug wires and alternator bracket, core support and radiator with overflow hose, battery with hold down clamp. Have yet to install rear side windows, antenna, hood pins & wire, and other things. Getting close to finishing.

Chris Greathouse Love the color, I look forward to more pictures :D
1. July at 21:41:32
Lode Schildermans awesome painting, Tim
1. July at 21:46:31
Dan C The problem with this kit is that its actually an older Monogram simplified 1/24 (re-boxed as Revell in this case)...… Revell has a Newly tooled 1/25 Cuda that is a lot more accurate.
2. July at 16:13:52
Tim Heimer I can see how that makes sense!
2. July at 19:21:55
Bob Hall Cool Ride ! That rear end looks like a Beast !

Bill Newcomer Tim, Did you get the Texaco decals I sent?
25. June at 06:37:00
Tim Heimer Yes Bill, thank you. I've been trying to email you, but apparently here is better. I need to know if your mail box will accept a 9x11 envelope. If not are you o.k with me carefully cutting up the sheet and sending it?
25. June at 12:58:32
Bill Newcomer I am OK with you cutting the sheet. I am BUILDING this model not hoarding it.
25. June at 14:13:14
Tim Heimer LOL! O.K. I'll have it out in the next 24 hrs. I like what you're doing with that low boy!
25. June at 14:58:21
Tim Heimer O.k , ETA is about 4 -5 days from now. Heads up!
25. June at 17:07:20
Bill Newcomer Cool! I'll be on the lookout.
26. June at 03:42:24
Bill Newcomer I got the decals today. Now when it is the tanker's turn in the queue, I can fulfill my vision. THANKS!

Tim Heimer Thank you Nathan! The last 2 releases in this series are glow in the dark, the first 3 were not. Now I wait until next year for the last 2 in the series. I forgot to take a pic of the moving arm in the other position! I guess the pirate saying is true! LOL!

27. June 2018 at 17:26:48
Martin Oostrom Did you try it? What's the max speed?
24. June at 18:22:34
Tim Heimer I have tried it and need to get back to it. It's going too fast for the set up to where I've had to move things forward 3 times now due to it blowing over at full speed. I have a little more work to do before trying it again. I think I'm going to have find another local lake that's bigger because I run out of room fairly quick.
24. June at 20:53:21

I've got a pond for you, it's called the North Sea ;)

Martin Oostrom Interesting, but what is the rubberband and spring used for?
24. June at 18:18:38
Tim Heimer These are action models with moving parts, most of them have a moving arm. I have used a spring in it because of the crap one they give you as well as the spring won't dry rot!
24. June at 20:35:19
Martin Oostrom The poor bloke lost one eye and closed the other one while in combat. He won't last long :D
24. June at 21:13:47
Peter Hardy That's bloody terrific Tim! Beard done very well! Looks like a much younger version of yourself on the way to a Pirates and Whores party! Done a very neat job on the skull and x bones too. Good job young man! The next question is do you have any more quieted away?
24. June at 21:16:20
Martin Oostrom Shouldn't that be a Wench?

What does a Wench do? It's a wrench without the R, it'll squeeze you out of your money!
24. June at 21:19:13
Tim Heimer Good point martin on the eye issue! I wasn't paying attention to that, too funny they made it that way! Wrenches, wenches!, they both cost money! LOL
