Actually, pretty lightweight, but I'll get a precise (bathroom scales) measurement tonight.

It is metal or composite material?

It's pretty standard diecast and plastic, but lots more plastic than you might expect. I'll try to take a few more pictures and post up a proper review in the right forum.

I dont have any immediate plans for the Charger, it has been like a guilty pleasure for a while. I was looking at the orange, and when it sold (damnit) I jumped on this. Was cheap too, like 80 euros.
Love the Charger. Straight six (?) engine with 3 carburators look pretty damn good on this model but I think it will look fantastic when you detail it with wires and pipes.

Allowing for windage, about 5.5 pounds.

Although its cool in red too. :okay:
Is that a GMP?

Muscle cars aren't on my list but I have to admit that is a really good looking model. Even as is, that engine bay looks really nice.

Great addition!

Thanks! I am no muscle car guy either (although it could be said that the old Nissans are Asian muscle cars) and dont have a single one in my collection right now. Sold my Autoart Shelby GT500 a while ago. But this car always called at me from the bottom of my want list, lol.

I might mess around with the engine a bit.

The engine looks good as is, but what makes me want a model is often that they look like real cars. And that is almost always - disregarding obvious budget brands - down to wheels and stance. On this Autoart really nailed it I think, something they often mess up.

Classic Carlectables also made Chargers from this era, as they are Aussie models. The N.A. Chargers were very different.
