This is my first online build. It is a combined kit of a 1969 mpc camaro and firebird. The chassis, interior and engine are from the fir IMAG0028_zps8eeb7d76.jpg ebird kit. The decals are from a 69 camaro with firebird emblems on the nose and tailight panel. The wheels are cragars to stay with the 60's theme of the car. The tailights and mirrors are from a 87 firebird. I shaved the doorhandles and replaced them with photoetch detailmaster door handles. The license plate is a custom washington plate. Enjoy. On to the next project. Just tap the picture to enlarge.

so smooth transitions and subtle changes that it looks like they were ment to be from the show room! Great build!

Very very nice, looks like the factory could have done it, one thing tho, the front is 67-68 Camaro, not 69.

I should have clarified front clip is 69 to retain the lower lights and meld with body. The grill is 68. I just modified the wheel lip mouldings to smooth the body.

Sorry for the post layouts. Started using another sight. Then photobucket came back so used them. Enjoy the pictures. Onto the coronet now. Thanks for the kind comments.

I especially like the fender vents, a nice touch on a well-done build.
