Lindberg's 1/25 1964 Plymouth Satellite. Built by Bob Kerasiotis, from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Painted with Scale Finishes Plymouth Ebony. Built basically out of the box as a street sleeper, with a ’67 Plymouth Hemi engine transplanted to give it some grunt. Engine detailed, scratchbuilt exhaust and traction bars. I like street sleepers, and this was a chance to make a very basic straight forward street sleeper. Worked on it over the space of 2 months on and off.
