Bob, the 454 emblem on the right rear tailight panel should be just a bit higher, with a MOTION emblem just above it. I don't have any pics with the SS emblem on the left side. But either way that Bad Boy is lookin WICKED!!!!Posted Image

Thanks George, but it's buried under clear now. The SS could be a smidge higher as well, but no worries.

I have the Motion badges for the fenders and the rear. I'll smack em on there and it'll look cool.


Thanks


Bob

I missed this one first time around. Looks great, Bob.

For curiosity, whose buff paint did you use for the interior? It looks very good.

Really? I'm no expert by any stretch so that's a bit of good news I suppose. I wasn't terribly worried but this keeps it legit.


As a mechanic for over 20 years with 17 in one garage I'm an expert at several cars [read: Ford Taurus, Chevy Caprice, Dodge Stratus and Intrepid]. Not Baldwin camaros.


Thanks George


Bob


Most of the Baldwin-Motion cars were special ordered and basically, could be optioned with anything the purchaser wanted. So unless you're replicating an actual 1:1 scale B-M car, just about anything you want to do is "correct".

I don't know the rules about ressurecting old threads, so please beat me with a wet noodle if I am breaking any rules, but I just want to ask Bob if he finished this one. I am a big fan of early second gen Camaro's and Motion cars.

This thread motivated me to buy the re-issue kit, and the photo-etch detail set made just for the motion car on ebay today.

Yeah, I would like to see photos of the finished product too. I really liked this one as you were doing it and I think I will be using that color combo on an upcoming build. Just have to figure out which one. 69 Corvette maybe?

Later-

Looks sharp. I'll be building mine as a non Motion car. More like the one from Gumball Rally.
