Richard Petty 1972 Dodge Charger

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Ok here is my near finished Richard Petty 1972 Charger. I still have a few finishing touches to finish off on this one. Ive got some Bare metal Foil Aluminium colour on the way that I will add to the front spoiler. So once it gets here Ill add the foil. I thought it would look better than paint. Also I want to add some photoetched hood pins to the front. just working out which ones to get. I thought some extra details would finish it nicely.

 

I started with AMT 1971 street charger & converted it to a 1972 stockcar. Paint is Tamiya TS23 light blue & Tamita Fluro red & Tamiya clear. Chassis is H&R with a 18k H&R hawk motor, Front H&R wheels all round with my own cast urethane tires. Decals by Stubbo. Great job on the decals thanks.

 

Ok heres the pics. This was really hard to photograph. That fluro red doesnt show up well on camera. In person its a much brighter red.

Nice job all round. The decalls finish the paint job off nicely.

Were or what are the rims you have used. They suit the era nicely

Awesome, love the paint and especially the wheels. I gather if it's AMT then its 1/25 scale?

You should come down our way to Xtreme Trax and give her a blast with our American muscle cars on a Thursday night. Can't let a car like that sit on the self too long!

 

Well done.

Holy thread resurrection, Batman! This came up on a Google search as I was looking for images of Petty's '72 Charger - I'm trying to create the graphics sheet for my 1:32 version.

 

I hope mine ends up as good as yours.
