This is a fun older build. Paint loosely based off a factory scheme.

The wheels and tires are from a 5th gen Camaro

Interior is pretty stock with the addition of a tach. Eventually I am going to build another 79 that will be silver, and it will recieve this red interior. I will then make the interior of this 79 black.

Paint is testor's burgandy, gloss black, and yellow.

Nice work. I always loved this gen of Camaro. The wheel/tire combo feels right on this build also.

The colorconcept looks good - like it!
Only the dash i would choose semigloss paint - because of reflect in the windshield ;)

Marty, that is orange peel you see, lighting makes it look really bad! but i painted this about 3 years ago and it still looks pretty good so I'm happy with it. Once I get better at polishing I might give this car a shot!

Thanks everyone!

I like it. The yellow pinstripe sets it off nice. I do remember a color scheme like this on the 1:1's.

My Dad owned a body shop all through my childhood, and one of his regular customers had the cream over coffee version of this paint layout. I don't remember seeing any others like it, but Dad had told me it was a factory deal. I always thought it was a super sharp car.
