Hi Everyone,

This is my first project post on the Model Car form, most of my stuff has been posed on the other Model Car forum, since I wasn't aware of this site.

I have a 1/25 scale 66 Nova project that I have been working on now... Off and On for over 2 years and having gotten past the fully custom tube chassis. Lost interest and was torn between a Full blown Pro Mod or a Pro Street, so I decided to push it to the side and start something new.

I know this isn't anything new as others are also working on some 1/16 scale Camaro's as well. So I hope no one minds me posting up my project. :)


Pro Mods seem to be the subject everyone is choosing these days, so here is my start to a 70.5 Camaro. Building my own custom Tube Chassis, and just finished the rear and part of the drivers cage. Need to work out the funny car cage and move to the front.
I just wrapped up the rear body mounts and the body mounts just above the trunk lid and even added the Frame gussets which look pretty cool even in bare aluminum. I still have plenty of work ahead of me just in the Chassis, but it is slowly coming together.
Here are two quick pics for you (I will try and get some better pics tomorrow)

Bart, that's one hellova entrance. :) And welcome. ;)
And yeah...if ProMods are the hot ticket, they're here in abundance mate. Can never have too many I reckon. :lol:

You're off to a cracking start on the chassis, looks superb. Appears to be fairly advanced in progress too....you better give us a look with body on-board. ;)
Another great thread bookmarked, I'll be tagging along on this journey.

Welcome to the Forum Bart!, totally agree, LOTS of Pro-Mods (can't go wrong there), I think because of the many different body styles is way there are so many. Don't think you have anything to worry about with "another" Camaro, the more the merrier! Can't wait to see more of your build!

I did some more work on the Chassis, got the front mocked up and the firewall completed. And even started part of the aluminum tranny mount.

First off I want to say, "Thank you All" for the kind words... and of course any feedback on accuracy.

I have a small update for everyone, been working on the 4 link mounts for the chassis and the rear end. Done up in aluminum and mounted up to the chassis.

After two day's of cutting/grinding/sanding and fitting they finally fit to my liking. The biggest headache was getting the width and the holes to line up when mounted. :) NOW my fingers tips are numb!!
