Hi guys,

so here's my last build, which is more a resto than an all new build. It started life as a Z28 black with white stripes, base model was an AMT molded in orange. After years of "good service" in my display case, I was kind off "tired" of it and wanted a different look, close to the one you could see on the catalog when new...

Here it is before I start it :

And here it is now, new paint, vinyl top, Fred Cady Decals, hupcaps from the Revell Impala 63 kit ( which curiously were factory correct for this year of Camaro ). I have put some more realistic headlight on the front grill. Engine is the "simple" 327, not pictured yet 'cause I've lost the air cleaner and the battery.....

Hope you'll like it

I really like the new look !   The blue and black with the redlines is a perfect combination for this year Camaro .  Nice job .

Very nice collection.  What did you use for the vinyl tops?  They look very realistic.

Thanks for your comments, I'm using masking tape for the vinyl top, than painted semi gloss black. Sometimes depending the quality of the tape it's moving a bit, but you just have to take it out and redonne, than repaint.... :D
