Looking forward for this and adapting Revell's Camaro detail, plus using the ZR1 engine spercharger with some scratchbuilding.  Or, here's hoping Revell will announce one mid-year!

That's a curbside model so no engine if building box stock :(

With a litle work, I have been able to start adapting the Revell details to the Round2 Camaro Convertible.  Not a 100% direct fit, but pretty close.  If Revell doesn't a ZL1, I'm hoping I can do the same to this one.  Only I need to get the ZR1 engine intake and adapt it to the ZL1.

And you should be able to make a 1LE Camaro as well with the stock SS kit/ZL1 kits.

Saw the new Show Room ZL Camaro at local Hobby Shop while I was picking up some paint &  does not come with the motor ? Has anyone picked this kit up yet ?

AMT's "Showroom Replica's" are Unassembled Promos, and therefore, No engine.

ie, Curbside. and have an old-School 'everything molded in' on the chassis

 

Not bad, But if they are like the 2009+ Dodge Challengers have Vinyl/Rubber

seats, so you are stuck with a Black interior!!

 

If they Had to make them in Vinyl/Rubber, why not do the White, so we

could At Least try Acrylic paints to alter the color??

You could coat the interior parts with Future, then paint them any color you want.

Or you can go to your local automotive paint supply & pick up some interior dye in the color you want, this is for use on flexible vinyl, plastic, etc. so it will work very well on the flexible parts in the AMT kits.

What Del said - Duplicolor dye also solved my Olds whitewall problems (till we all found out Revell was sending out tampos).

 

Those vinyl parts also take Tamiya TS flats like there's nothin' to it.  You can even sand down some of the swirl marks with their primer.

Pretty well. Though it's called a dye, it's more like a flexible paint. Try it, you'll liiiiike it.

All great information for dealing with the vinyl seats in these new "Craftsmen" style kits.  However if you're building a factory stock ZL-1 no matter what color your order it in, the interior is black leather with black alcantara inserts.

I agree.... I wish they would do a GS body..... Coupe and Roadster.....

 

Then I could build my 1:1 car.....  It is one of several of my 1:1 cars that I have not been able to build.... hope they do it soon....

 

But with the 2014's in the pipe-ine already I really doubt it will happen.....we will no doubt see a "Show-room" replica of the 2014 by mid-summer..... 

 

One of four of my "real ones"........
