Hey Marc:

Nice Camaro, can you tell me where the hood came from? I am currently working on one and would like to do a cowl inducted hood.

I like everything about it. The black stripe and grille did it. :)

Thanks for the comments. I've back-burnered this one while I work on the Gremlin but will resume construction in the near future. It deserves to be completed. :(

Okay, I finished the '69 Barracuda so it's back to work on the '67 Camaro. I finished the bodywork and shot some paint last night. In a change of heart and probably my better judgement, I went with Pactra R/C Aqua Wave. It is a flip-flop paint that you shoot over a black base. Here's a few pics to see if you think I've lost it. ;)

The plan is to go with a white nose stripe and either a white or grey interior. Have I lost it?


No, I liked it so much, I bought a can myself.....

Looking great...love that color...that color has a Hot Wheels Spectraflame vibe to it....all it needs are redline tires and a rake to the stance to remind me of a vintage HW Camaro. ;)

The Camaro is back on the bench after a 10 week hiatus. Started working on the interior today. I'm using the glue-bombed original. Started by separating the front seats from the console and filling in the sides.

I painted the interior from the 1967 Camaro today. I chose to keep the stock front bucket seats and to paint the whole thing to mimic the 1967 deluxe interior package. Below is a pic from a 1:1 Camaro.

Here's my version.

I painted the interior Tamiya Fine White Primer, masked the stripes with 1mm masking tape, and painted with Tamiya TS-6 Matt Black.

Enjoy!!!

Well, I've started plugging away at the Camaro again now that the 1972 GTX is finished. Applied BMF to the front and rear window openings and painted the vent window frame with Testors Acryl Flat Black.

Here's a sneek peek at the interior...

I like this picture because it shows the remnants of the major glue dump in the original 1967 interior tub. It will be hidden by the flocking.

It is Pactra RC Colors Aqua Mist shot over their black base coat for the flip flop effect. Cleared with Tamiya TS-13 and polished.

That Looks AWESOME!!! Love everything about it even the DOHC LT5 motor which looks real Bad@##! You do really nice work Marc, I mean REALLY nice!! Saw all your other builds too and even they came out reeeeeeeeely good!

I like the color ya used. Is pactra enamal (same fourmla as testors) or is it lacquer? Does it dry flat or under a stays glossy under a gloss coat? I have a good primer that I use so crazing may not be a problem, but if it's flat and i went to apply it over a gloss base (say the wal-mart paints) it would mess the whole thing up, ans I don't want that happening...

Again, very nice job on yours and seeing it makes me want to pick up a Revell '69 camaro from michaels with mah coupons, use the hidden headlight grille on it, do the my pro-touring magick on 'er, and possibly shove an LT5 in it (if I gots one).

Hope to see it finished soon! seeing your work and builds make me come back 4 more!!

Marc,

That is looking sweet and nice to see it getting close to being done. I worked with a guy who had a '67 Camaro from Nickey Chevrolet that was similar in color to yours, down to the black nose stripe and deluxe interior. I remember a few rides in that car- nothing like an L-88 Camaro to snap your neck when going through the gears!


Get it done so we can see it finally finished!


Mike

V,

Thanks for the kind words. The Pactra RC paint is a lacquer that is designed to be applied to lexan RC bodies. It didn't seem too "hot" as it went over Tamiya primer with no problems. If you use this paint, I would use Pactra's black base coat and probably Testors lacquer clear or Tamiya TS-13 like I did.

Thanks for the update. Just curious, are you going to fill the area under the fron of the seats or are you going to finish cutting off the are under the seat like the one on the left has about 3/4 of the way done?
