"Modern" 1979 Camaro Z28

Recently acquired this gem with the intent to put a little pep in its step. Started out drilling out a set of Pegasus wheels to give it some attitude. Next this had to come down a tad.

Paint is Scalefinishes Ford D3 Colorado Red. Two coats of Tamiya fine white primer, sanded then 2 coats of red. Found imperfections in the finish so wet sanding was needed. Just shot one last coat of the red before I clear it in a couple of days.

Blending rubber and aluminum

05 January 2014 - 09:47 AM

I'm using Pegasus sleeves for a project, but to get the look I want I need to blend the tire and sleeve to look as one. I figure I will need to epoxy or glue them together but what are some good suggestions for blending them together? Here is a picture of what i'm working with.Attached File  tmp_20140105_134317-810509548.jpg   118.89KB   0 downloads

Starting this thread off with the wheel and tire combo of this truck. I am going for the correct visual for the appearance of this kit as it is just not correct from Revell. Below is the actual truck



The white wheels is the kit with the stock wheel/tire combo, the silver wheels pic is modified kit wheels with Pegasus 23" sleeves


IMO the kit wheels look a touch too small compared to the truck while the silver looks like it has a touch too much sidewall.


Please give your thoughts on both
