    This sounds like a really nice idea!

    No time limit Gary.
    All just for fun. Which is good because I've been busy with this thing called work.

    Although I didn't know Harry very well, I did enjoy his work and his critiques. He truly was passionate about this hobby and it showed in everything he did.
    Rest in peace Harry.

    I'm so sorry to hear this very sad news about Harry.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you r Camaro Craig.
    I managed to get the majority of the body work completed. Dechromed and fit the front and rear bumbers to the car. Both will be body color once done. 
    This picture doesn't represent the stance I'll finish up with. I'll work that out once I begin building the chassis. 

    Sorry about the dark picture.

    Nice work on the weathering Kyle.

    I finally found some wheels that are close enough to the wheels on the car pictured above.

    Here is the kit I'll be using. 

     
    While searching for the wheels, I can across this 85 Camaro snap kit I picked up years ago as a junker. I'm going to see if I can polish out the paint as it has lots of orange peel and other irregularities. If that fails I'll strip the paint and start again. I don't know what the builder used (enamel or Laquer) so I am reluctant to clear coat it with Tamiya clear which is my goto clear coat.

    I agree with the others, that paint job on the body looks like the real thing. The details on the dashboard are remarkable.
    Nice work!

    Thanks Tim.
    I can't take credit for the picture or the car but it captured me as well. I've been searching through my parts bin for wheels and tires that are close to the ones in the picture above. 
    Pictures to come later.

    Welcome Ashley and Karl,
    Looks like we are going to have quite a few builds going on here.
    I saw the 2017 AMT Camaro and placed my order right away. That'll be my second build.
    I like where you're going with yours Karl. Mean and lean machine!

    This is great guys!
    Good to have a few interested, perhaps we'll pick up more as we move along. I think I will likely do a few Camaros of differnet generations but I will start out with the Revell 69 Z-28. 
    Looking around the net for some inspiration I came across this pro-touring version. I won't replicate it 100% but will build something similiar.

    Wow Tony!
    That is about the nicest job I have ever seen on this kit. 
    I've put off building this kit because of the issue lining up the front end.

    Camaro 50th Anniversary
    With this being the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro I thought it might be fun to start a build thread for those interested. Any Camaro from the past 50 years, stock, race, etc could be done. I was thinking the build could be for fun, no prizes.
    I really don't know how to run a group build or what needs to be done to get one off the ground.
    Thoughts?

    I really like this car Graham.
    The chassis looks great and as the others have already said, the paint looks fantastic.

    Thanks Pat
    I was just curious, they look very well done.
