1/12 `69 Camaro Z/28 Cross-Ram.....Huggar Orange
Posted 12 September 2009 - 06:15 AM
This is yet another build up of the Monogram 1/12 Z/28 kit, with alot of detail and scratch building added. My goal again was to create these as new from factory as you might see them on the showroom floor. The license plate, inspection sticker, registration, and dealer window sticker were all reduced versions of the real thing from 1969. The Model Car Garage photo-etch detail set was added. I also added brakes lines, wound springs, and aluminum exhaust tubing. I tried to simulate accurate labels and chalk markings on the firewall, exhaust, axle, and front and rear springs, as well as other spots on the chassis. "Lettering" was added to the ignition wires and heater hoses, and any other hose or wire I found on the engine that could use it. Simulated wood was painted on the dash, steering wheel, and center console with a very small brush. The interior was flocked for an accurate carpeted look. It was painted with many coats of color and clear lacquer (I forget how many, but ALOT), and then wet-sanded and rubbed out with three different grades of compound. Bare metal foil was used throughout.
Also took some pics of them together:

How were the photoetch sets to work with for this car? I have been meaning to order at least a couple sets, but have held off due to not seeing any cars built up with this set. From the looks of things, that photetch set is alright to work with. Just wondering...

93Z, the detail set is great, and I can`t imagine building one without it. It is frustrating sometimes when gluing the emblems on, but worth it in the end. The emblems also have a goldish tint to them, so I usually end up spraying them with chrome paint for an accurate look.
The weather was nice today, so I decided to take some more pics, since I wasn`t happy with the way the others turned out.
Here you go!

That would have made a great "Real or Model" choice too

I just came across this thread. This build is incredible! It's hard to believe it's not a real Camaro.
