    Looks great, Slusher! Your paint is always so nice! I did the 50 Ford convertibl e custom like this but it doesn't look as good as yours! Nice job!

    2010 Camaro SS Indy Pace Car
    Here is a progress shot of the Camaro Indy Pace Car for the 2010 race. Used Tamiya Orange for Inferno Orangr as the Chevrolet can of touch up paint for this color was bad paint. Simulated the pace car strobe lights with foil and epoxy. Waiting for K Marks decals while I finish the assembly. I am very pleased with the kit and the 5 piece asembly for the front, grill and lights didn't need any glue except for the fog lamp chrome backing piece. I also lowered the suspension to get the right ride height which was quite a few steps. Other than that this is a relatively easy build! Thanks for looking!

    I didn't think the re-issue was too bad other than the hood fit on the cowl that I failed to rectify when I built this one in the mid-nineties right after the re-issue. I had bought an original kit from the 60s before I know about the re-issue. I still have that kit and 3 of the re-issues. Here is my build that I didn't try to make 100% accurate just my interpretation of the Ala Kart. Other than the hood fit it was fun to build and pretty much box stock. used white paint and followed woth some Testor's Clear Pearl which has flakes in the paint that made it kinda of white pearl that has faded a bit but still doesn't look bad after 20 years.
