I certainly think so, considering the talent it takes to create them. They were $7.50, 8 in a package.

Daytona Yellow from Automotivetouchup.com. Three coats of color and three coats of clear. It needs a fair bit of polishing, but it came out pretty good. I will later add the black stripe decals and seal them with another coat of clear. I also did a bit of detailing on the chassis.

You mentioned earlier in the thread that you took an 8th inch off the back. Is this just on the top and bottom rows that aren't open, or on the entire grill. If you know what I mean?

Thanks, everyone, I'm glad you all approve!

 

Mrdarkmonkey, the rest of the grill except for the top and bottom rows is open, but about an 8th inch needs to be taken off the whole thing to make it look more correct in scale.

I am also building this model.  I also choose almost the same color. LOL.

 

But I am in no way putting in the time and effort you are. Looks just awesome!

Wow!! That looks fantastic! I can't wait to see how yours comes out, either! I almost chose a darker yellow like that; more like the shade used on the 2010 Camaro, but I changed my mind at the last second and decided to go with the original 1969 color. Kind of funny that we're both building yellow Camaros at the same time, since before now, I had never seen one of these done in yellow. Where did you get your paint, and what is the shade called?

I do most of my purchases at Hobby Lobby now since its close to the house. Thats where I got the paint. The paint is Model Masters Pearl Yellow #2978.

 

I actually bought 2 of these Camaro kits from H.L. One to build like I am with the big motor and the horribly ugly Foose wheels and one nice and stock looking. You have inspired me to spend much more time and care on the next one I build. This one I got pretty excited and kind of rushed a bit. I will post a pic later for you .... I am a little further along now.

I couldn't for the life of me get the decals to lay flat on the hood even with Micro Set and Micro Sol, so I'm thinking of a compromise. If I mask and paint the stripes on the front but use the decals on the back, after a couple coats of clear, do you out there think there will be any noticeable difference? I would think that since they have the expanse of the roof between them, even if there was a slight difference, it would be difficult to compare them anyway. I would greatly appreciate anybody's input.

Not sure if it is too late, or if you can get your hands on another set of decals, but if you place the decal on the hood, before it sets you can try taking a very hot wet towel and use pressure on the decal for a few minutes. It should stretch and conform to the hood.

Hair dryer works great with some MicroSol and MicroSet.

I haven't made my decision about the rear stripes, but I was able to do the front in the meantime. The decals were a definite no-go, so I reluctantly masked off the stripes, praying that I would do a better job than last time. They're not completely perfect, but they're about as perfect as I could ever hope to get them! I used Tamiya TS-29 semi-gloss black because I've noticed that I tend to have better luck getting flat or matte colors to lay down smoother than gloss colors. Plus, it'll get probably another 2 coats of clear over it. I've heard good things about Rustoleum automotive lacquer clear coat, product #253366.
