    For custom outlaw and cowl hoods, check out www.lexsscalemodeling1.bravehost.com
     
    I saw many different types of hoods on his site. He also sells on eBay under seller ID 67impala427.
     
    There was a cowl and outlaw hood listed for the 70 Camaro.

    That one is usually referred to as a L-88 style hood. I don't recall the second generation Camaro's having a cowl induction hood like the first generation models. I have seen some in resin, will have to dig through my resources to see if I can find who was casting them.

    For me it was the door gaps and the outside mirror, just didn't look real enough to me.

    The old adage is true- Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!

    I remember Bob Downie (ZoomZoom) created a model using a late model Mustang, Challenger and Camaro and it came out much nicer than this thing!

    Coming along nicely Mark, as usual, awesome detail work!

    Don't worry, I am sure the government has all of our information already on a secure server with a back up cloud!

    Looks great, I might have to pickup (pun intended!) one of the AMT trucks for this exact purpose!

    Check out Scenes Unlimited, Danny has a bunch of wheels and might have something close to what you are looking for. The Modelhaus would be another place to check.
     
    Both places have a great product and are top notch to deal with.

    Me too! It would be nice to have 2wd & 4wd versions.
    I think if someone was to tool up a Chevy kit that was a bit more detailed than the AMT kit is/was, they could have a hit on their hands. And like Moebius, offer up some variations- long & short bed, 2wd & 4wd. A nice Suburban would be cool too!

    some things hint Model, others hint Real, so I went with Model.

    Looks great Chuck, you have that weathering thing down pretty good, so much so that I am shocked when you post a shiny build!
  14. mikemodeler added a post in a topic Correct, deep Cragar rear wheels to fit the Zingers kits?   

    Would the rear wheels from the AMT 70 1/2 B-M Camaro work? IIRC they are a deep dish style Cragar and I saw the kit on the shelf at HL and it was clearance priced.

    I wouldn't assume Foose is spending any money on the tooling. More likely he is being paid some royalties for using his name and designs and Revell is looking for kits that resemble builds he has done in the past.
    If I were a betting man, I would say that the "new tool" will be more like a modified version of the existing F100 kit. Don't expect it to be just like the truck as shown on TV, they would have a bunch of money tied up in a kit that would have limits on future issues due to the unique styling.
