Well.......15 months on, really? How would you guys feel about an update?
Man, where to start.........................
The passed 12 months or so has given me plenty of time for soul searching and head scratching regarding this massive build.
Surprisingly, the biggest change, will be to a NEW body!
This was by far, my hardest decision to make in recent times, given how many hours work I already have committed to my own Camaro body, I just knew it was not going to hold up in the long run.
It's not broken, but I fear that will happen eventually, and I don't wish to be left stranded, without a body some time down the road.
When we all got wind of Dave's (comp1839) brilliant idea of getting a proper Camaro ProMod body commissioned, I knew then, that this is what I wanted.
I was already well into mine, and the cost of a 1/12 Camaro body was outside my reach at the time.....Times change, lets move on!
Yesterday I received confirmation that my new 1/12 69 Camaro ProMod is on the way, due by the 22nd July. You think I'm excited?? Just a tad, hey.
Plans are for a full re-do on the chassis, thinking of going the brass route, as it will make it that much stronger and stable.
Wheels and tyres are in the planning stages too, so with some big chunks of luck (already had bucket loads of good will) this project is set to snowball outta control.
A good mate (in our model club) is on the verge of buying a 3D printer, so that's bound to get used to the hilt along the way.....
Please bare with me as I get back into stride, but rest assured, the Camaro is BACK!
Cheers guys, your ol' Aussie bud downunder.....
