In Topic: Scratching out a body kit for Revell 79 Z28 Camaro 3-n-1/Streetburner

Hey Ray,

What sort of body kit do you want to build? The most difficult part by far is the rear valance. Everything can be made with a combination of sheet styrene and putty though. Buy some 0.10 thickness styrene sheet and some Tamiya 2-part putty. Milliput will work too. You want 2-part putty because single part putty will shrink.

Depends on how much you put on, but I can handle the body enough to put in the dehydrator in about 30 minutes, and I can take it out of dehydrator after about 2 to 3 hours. I have been known to wetsand it after that and clear it then. I love Tamiya paint for it's ability to work with quickly.


Same here. It's really "hot" paint but its fast-drying properties are really forgiving when it comes to wetcoats. It's great stuff, and the only stuff I use. Spray your first mist coat of clear into the last wetcoat of color, before it sets up, and you can easily finish the whole paintjob in a day.

Do you sell the resin sleeves?

For some reason or other, I'd cut out the front flares for larger tires. Whatever I was doing didn't go as planned and I built this instead. I'm currently redoing this model and a handful of others. Since the price of new kits is out of hand, I'm redoing alot of my old builds. Kinda like George Lucas.


I'll give you a kit, if you want one to work from. PM me :)


Beautiful paint and detail, looks just right. The only suggestion I would make is to go back and see if you can clean up the outline of the black paint on the wheel well flares.


Thanks everyone!

And yes, I have done that.

These are simple, but excellent kits. I have two that I built when I was a kid. Tamiya rarely dissapoints. What are you going to do for the missing lights? The kit could be buitl with them up or down.
Here is one of mine as the Decepticon, Breakdown.

Now that's interesting! What happened to the front flares?

My plan for the "missing lights" was to install them :b
