Dry Mock up of car #2, something about those Magnum 500's just looks right with the Butternut yellow.

Nice touch with that photo-reduced N.Y. Times, Nick.

 

Things seem to be progressing well overall.

Nice looking builds......I had the stock wheelbase "Funny Hugger " AMT 69' Camaro my late uncle gave me when I was a kid...Stock Body....But the wheel wells were radiest for the slicks....Nice save on the AMT kit.

I have said before Nick but it is worth repeating- the improvement in your skills is noticeable as your paint jobs and detailing have come a LONG way since some of those first builds you posted! Nice job on the Camaros, I have several that I need to finish and today would be a good day to do that!

It's getting close the show is next Sunday, but I swear I'll have 3 done for the display.

 

Junk box leftover build, glass already had the staging numbers I just went over them again with the white paint pen.

My '69 SS/RS Coupe, I wasn't sure about the color, but now I'm in love with it, it's now one of my favorite builds because of the color.

Nick....Great looking builds.....That AMT one is my favorite...I have a photo of one with the Magnum 500 wheels on it....Labeled a 1970....The 70 1/2 came out in February of that year.....So you could say that's a early 1970 Camaro.....Great job on all three of them.

Hey, nice hustle Nick. Way to persevere. It's an interesting variety of Camaros. I guess I have to go with the Coupe, but I like the attitude the wheels give the street machine.
