    I'm not sure offhand which it is ('65 or '66) and it's not here with me now. I have the same one that everyone else has. They SAY it's a 66, the box art shows a '69, but it's definitely an earlier one. Pretty messed up!

    Anyway, apparently there were different year of kits, but I got the release with the incorrect box art:

    http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/showpost.php?p=777164&postcount=73

    Maybe the only '68 or '69 HUG kits are the original release ones, which I won't want to pay for since I just want to build them. If anyone knows of a current or recent release that is a '68 or '69 HUG, please let me know, otherwise I'll be looking for open box kits on ebay (so I can see what I'm getting ahead of time and won't get the same one).

    BTW, I have that clear red Ghost Cuda in that post! I'm not sure if I'll build that one though, apparently it's fairly scarce since most of them were regular clear, not red.

    I'll look BUT I think my kit ofthe HHUG is a '66.....I have to see what body it is, (MY KIT is unopened!) SO, I'm gonna go on a "search to see if there are pics of its contents!

    Anyway, I'm trying to find a '67 to a '69 'Cuda....NOT to be a race car, but a street car.....I bought this one thinking it was the '69......I was wrong! BUT Its since been traded to a friend for a '77 Volare model.....To make into a car my Grandfather owned.....

      NICE work! That looks GREAT. I have 2 of these AMT '71 Duster kits and want to make one of them into a '71 Dodge Demon, just because. BUT I have to find the parts to do so, first!

      OK, it's not a Mopar, heck, it's not even a car. Actually, it's not even American (it's a British WWI fighter). But I finished this up today. I wanted to hone my airbrushing and decaling skills (they're hardly honed, but I got it done) on something less important to me before I did a Mopar. To build confidence and learn. Ooops, turns out now I love airplanes.

      This is the Academy 1/72 Sopwith Camel kit. It's TINY. Fits in the palm of my hand. 'Bout drove me blind working on it.

      Mopars to come.

      I did a LOT of 72nd scale stuff when I was younger.

      Me and the kid down the block had a fairly complete strike force and including support, in both WWII era and modern 1980's era.

      Tanks, trucks, troops, etc.

      We sometimes used them as playing pieces for the board game "Panzer Leader", or similar.

      IIRC the last ones I did were a Dodge WC, a Jolly Green Giant, and a V22 Osprey.

      I was also working on a 737 that was going to be an AWACs variant.

      My friend had a B52. That's a damn big model even in 1/72.

      I also had a space shuttle, another HUGE 72nd scale craft.
