  1. Thanks, and yes definitely a lot of opportunities for some cool theme cars, cheers!
  2. Simple and beautifully built custom, well done!
  3. Since many have asked, here are some quick pictures I took with my phone of the engine and interior, both box stock.
  4. Thanks! It's not a curbside, I just focused on the exterior for the first batch of photos. I'll post some soon, as for the Goodyear lettering, I painted them by hand by just dabbing on white paint a bit at a time.
  5. Thanks for the comments everyone, cheers!
  6. Thanks, unfortunately I didn't take any, it's just the box stock Z28 engine, block done also in the Fluorescent orange. If I do take some I'll add it to the post. Cheers!
  7. Hi guys, I'd like to share my most recent build, I call it the Skunkworks Z28. It is the 1969 Camaro Z28/RS model from Revell, built box stock except for the slotted rims and tires which come from the Monogram Ford Street T Roadster and Trailer kit. All of the chrome was stripped and painted using Alclad, but keeping the coats to a minimum to go for more of a dark chrome look. The front facia inner area and rear taillight panels were done in Fluorescent orange, and the body is finished in Tamiya Acrylic German Grey XF-63 and cleared with Tamiya Semi-Gloss Clear X--35. The Skunkworks Decals come from the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk Kit, and the numbers come from an unknown Gundam decal sheet. Since this generation of Camaro is already stunning, I just wanted to put my own spin on it with the wheel/tire combo and a unique paint job. Enjoy!
  8. Thank you very much, and thanks everyone for the comments!
  9. Thanks for all of the comments, and yes I was inspired by this look, also the many Subaru WRX's which carry the same theme.
  10. Hi all, here's another model I recently completed. Started in 2014, I lost motivation due to the quality of the plastic. This General Lee MPC kit was really poorly molded, even with quite a bit of bodywork there's still alot of defects that show through. I eventually decided to just paint it as is and at least get it off of the desk, which is why some areas are not perfect. I de-chromed everything on the chrome tree, and redid those parts with Alclad. The wheels I sprayed a Zero Paints gold and left them in a matte finish. The body is painted Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic with Tamiya Clear, and the interior the same Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic over black, matte finish. I chose not to do the rear panel black for something different, the rest is all stock. The most fun for me was the photoshoot and trying out new lighting techniques, it's there where the car really shines. Cheers!
