Complementing the Plum Crazy 1970 Challenger Coupe, this R/T Hemi version in convertible form is dolled up in Banana yellow with bold black hood accents, side stripes and rear spoiler. The interior is jet black with matching boot and up top. Although modified to formulate the convertible version of the car, the model shares the great detail and intricacies of the coupe.

As with the hard top, this is also new tooling. The doors are mounted on the internal hinge plates that eliminate the dog legs. The doors also snap shut and align like the 1:1. Chrome metal foil badgings are really nice and have no need to be covered in floor sealant. The suspension is full-function and even the driveline rotates. The air cleaner is removable and TFM took a compromising route on the hood pin/tether replication. But before you turn your nose up at that, let me elaborate. While a considerable detailing effort goes into making functioning hood pins, they are laborious to remove and reinsert. TFM has fashioned the hood pins with tethers attached so that you can open and close the hood without the actual tedious job of putting the model in display mode once again. I like that. AND, the hood is on new-tech scissors springs hinges!

The interior has great detail. The seat belts, dash, door and floor detailing is really good and the sills and window moldings all lend great detail touches to the reality of miniature here. The trunk features a good level of detail as well. The space-saving spare is lettered correctly, jacking stickers in place and the jack and floor mat are fabricated well. The engine bay carries the day in the detailing department. Wiring, fuel and emergency lines are all thoughtfully crafted and the overall ‘look’ of the model is faithful to the real McCoy. The paint finish is absolutely excellent and is glossy and smooth. Below the metal foil side badgings are minute, “R/T” scripts within the paint stripe and the grille-mounted emblems and the rear-mounted block letters in the backup lights are awesome.

Beside the coupe or any muscle car model this car comes off challenging the top banana – sorry, couldn’t help myself.
