  1. Outside mirrors and rear spoiler attached to the body
  2. Chassis and interior mated to the body and the wheels have been epoxied on.
  3. A quick update -- Front , Rear and side windows in place. Also added the license plate on the rear. Almost ready to be mated to the chassis and interior, stay tuned!
  4. Thx for the comments, Len and David -- yea the painting was challenging, used Automotive Touchup , Arctic White and Carbon Flash Black, this was wet sanded and then the AT Single stage Clear was applied, again wet sanded and polished. The paint worked pretty well, it was thinned with Mr. Color Leveling thinner and sprayed with the AB.
  5. Rear view mirror from the Maisto diecast attached to the front windshield(the R kit does not come w one); decals placed on visors and also have a decal for the rear view mirror put it cannot be seen -- the visor decals probably won't be seen either --oh well...
  6. Rear view with taillights and exhausts attached:
  7. Front view of the C7 -- still need to put the side cove trim pieces on, install the front and rear windows and the front grill. Getting closer --
  8. A little more progress on the C7 GS -- body is cleared and polished, taillights and front headlights attached as well as the front wheel arch 'stone guards'. The headlight bezels were painted Tamiya 'Smoke' with flat aluminum accents for the LED strip, headlight covers were accented with a Sharpie for the 'gaskets'. The 'stone guards' were ,4x2mm strip, painted flat black and tapered to the leading edge of the wheel arch. Some pictures below:

  12. Len -- Thx, just cleared the front fender hash marks, will let them cure for a few days and then polish out the clear and the rest of the car. It's coming together!
  13. Anton -- Thank you, still a little more to go -- but almost done. This has been a challenge!
  14. Side view of GS, still need to put side cove trim and front wheel arch 'stone guard' on. Also, I'm going to clear the fender hash stipes, so they will hold up to some polishing. Used the kit decals for the side marker lights -- getting closer to the finish line -- thanx for looking, appreciate any comments. Al
  15. Front fender hash marks, painted acrylic Gunmetal, after car was cleared with AT Clear and rubbed out. flat and semi-gloss black was applied to underbody and to windshield wipers.

  17. Great start, I'll be following
  18. A little more progress on the C7 GS, detail painting completed, added panel line detail with the 'The Detailer' grey and completed the decals. Next is clear coat, and I'm thinking of painting the fender hash stripes after clear coat with Valejo Acrylic Gunmetal --the decals I have don't look quit correct --coming down the home stretch.... Thx for looking
  19. Craig - -Great job, the stance of the Camaro is just right!! Loving the diorama and great paint job!
  20. Wayne and Carl -- Thx for the compliments --it has been a very long build process, trying not to rush this end process as i can see the finish line. Still more details and some minor over spray to correct, I'll try and keep the updates coming.
  21. Also painted the rear valence and the side coves, AT Carbon Flash, getting closer to the end --still need to paint the 'A' pillars, the rear brake scoop trim, then add the decals and clear coat. It's starting to come alive!! thanx for following!
  22. A little more progress on the C7 Grand Sport, measured and centered the hood and rear deck carbon Flash stripe -- added the hood and rear spoiler which i had painted separately to ensure that the stripes aligned, looks pretty close,
  23. Ismael -- you're C8 looks great, can't wait to think what the Z06 version of this will look like!
  24. Looks great, really like the interior and color combination!
  25. I attached the hood front grill air vents --this was also painted AT Carbon Flash. The body has it's final coat of primer and is ready to be painted; this is the part I'm most anxious about, but can't wait to have this done. Fingers crossed!!
