I posted this one a while back, but I had to get some pictures of it today, and I thought I would share them since the previous pictures weren`t that great.
Anyway, this another typical build for me...period correct inspection sticker, window sticker reduced and printed from a real `69 window sticker, chalk markings, brake lines, etc. It`s hard to choose, but I think this is my favorite color scheme for this car.

That's ultra-nice. Clean as a whistle, and I would agree this scheme works great on this body. looks like business-time

That is a beautiful build. Does the kit have the conventional quad set up as an option?

Beautiful build David! Ever since I saw this build the first time, I've wanted to try my hand on one of these. But, I still haven't been able to score one at a decent price.

David - I had a '68 Camaro that lasted many years and took me many miles. This looks exactly like it should. The engine compartment looks like mine did. I don't see a license plate, so I don't know what state it's supposed to be in, but that windshield inspection sticker even looks like one I had.
What a great build and thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate it.

Thanks Ted`s. Now that I look at the picture, I noticed the license plate is missing. I built this one years ago, so I can`t say for certain, but I usually print out a period correct PA license plate for these. The inspection sticker was a scan and print of either a `69 or `70 PA state inspection sticker from memory.

David,

Super nice build, so you truly are the Camaro expert. I see that I am missing a few things off of mine.

One of the nicest I have ever seen.

Thanks Kenny! I think anyone would mistake yours for one of mine, and vice versa. Your Camaro in the Completed section looks perfect!

 Dear Hawk312,

I am not totally sure that you are aware, but will assume that you probably are. This forum is for scale models only, not for actual 1:1, real cars that have been restored to perfection.. Lol

 

 What an amazing build !! I have this kit here on my shelf, but I can guarantee everyone in the world, that no matter how hard I try, it will never come out anywhere near as nice as yours is. Job well done, thank you so much for sharing.
