Here are some pics of the models I built in the last years (my photographing skills are not the best...):
69 Nova made from the 72 AMT model. A huge lot of work went into it. To repair the body in all window frame areas, to get the fenders aligned, to correct the rear wheel wells and the c-pillars and so on. I lengthend a Revellogram 69 Camaro chassis and also took the engine from it. Cady decals and a self made vinyl top completed the model. After all, it is one of my favourite models!
70 1/2 Camaro SS 396. This is the late 80s version of the Z/28 AMT kit. The retooled AMT annual from 70 to 77, not the new tool kit. That wasn't available when I buit this kit. Much work was involved to get the front fender tops right, to flatten the area where snout and hood meet in the middle of the car and to get the correct square look of the headlamp pods. Chassis and engine is 69 Camaro again.
70 Challenger R/T Six Pack
Inspired by a picture in an ancient Car Craft I built this one from an AMT Yankee Challenger. Filled in the hood, glued on the roof. A bit of detail on the chassis and engine bay. The wheels are JoHan Superbird, tires are too fat two piece NASCARs from JoHan. Cady decals for the stripes. I had to cut these into several pieces to get them to follow the body lines. Go Mango finish from a rattle can with clear coat, then rubbed out. I built this one in 93, would do al lot different today, though.
71 Challenger R/T Hemi
Ok, I am a Mopar guy, own two Mopar muscles. This particular model is my favorite build and the hottest 71 Challenger I can imagine. Citron Yella Hemi four speed without vinyl roof and Shaker hood but with colored bumpers, a 71 only option.
I took a nearly wrecked MPC annual body, grafted in the side markers and door handles from an AMT Challenger, had ti buy a resin hood as the original was completely crazed from paint and a knife. Resin side scoops, aftermarket decals. The chassis and engine bay is AMT like on my 70, engine is a parts box Hemi.
