      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I wanted to pass this along to anyone who needs photo's of the Camaro from the movie. It has photo's of both versions of the car in the movie. The red and black and solid black camaro, and photo's of the interior.

    Is a Drag-U-La model hard to build or easy?
    I have a Munsters Drag-U-La and a Koach to build.  What I have been reading up, builders say this is a hard kit to build since it is hard to place the body on the kit.  What kind of mods can you do to the kit?  Has anyone ever cut one of these up? Wired it up? Detailing?  What should I keep a look out for? Also what kind of tires will work best with the kit?  I'm not a big fan of the hard plastic ones that came with the kit.

    The kits are pretty much the same in body lines on the front. Well then no need to cut one up then. I was planning on shaving off the emblems, side lights,  making the taillights like the 67.  I just didn't know if the 67 and 68 amt bodies where the same molds.   Then I'll focus on looking into learning how to make the doors open and close on the kit now.   I will look into maybe doing a kitbash on a 73 nova, and seeing if I can turn one into a hatchbatch.

    What kind of glue are you using to bond your customs together?   Is there any special fillers I should look into?  I have used in the past for fillers stuff like jb water weld.   I am looking into Tamiya Quick Dry Epoxy Putty and the Tamiya glues.  Only thing I don't like on the tamiya stuff is I can find some glue at hobby lobby, and riders, but I have to buy the rest online.

    That's what I'm looking for is yard lots with decent bodys.  I tend to stay away from ones with busted bodies, or really messed up paint work.   So back to surfing ebay for decent parts/car lots.  I also noticed on the older models the body's seem more thinner than the newer models out.  I really don't like how on my camaro kit they have printed text on the inside of the roof.

    Just wondering if a 67 amt and 68 amt could switch out the front fenders. Trying to find shots of the kits side by side to see if the fronts are the same, line wise. If they are the same, then I'll look into working on the doors.   I would like to also cut the doors, and make them open and close.  I think on the doors that might be to much if the front is changed up.  Learning as go on trying new things.

    You guys, have some nice cutting skills.  What are you using to cut with?  Exacto blade, or something much finer?  Also original models or resins kits?

    Can you fuse two cars together?
    Dumb question that rolled into my mind.... Can you take a 68 camaro model cut off the front, do the same with a 67 camaro.  Then fuse the 68's front onto the 67's body? Would the fused car fit onto the frame?    I have never cut up a model and just wondered in theory.  I mean it would be frankensteining two cars together.    I was told on a forum that the 67, 68, and 69 camaros were pretty the same body, with a few details added to them.   Just something I was wondering about, and can it be done?

    Have a set of rims being done by Holy Grail Resin to get this model started. These are the original 5 hole mags like in the movie.  If anyone is interested in getting a set when he has the set finished. They are a small rim for the front and a wide rim for the back.

    Did you contact Holy Resin's forum and see if they can do it up?

    Anymore updates on how your build is going?
  12. Blackkat13 added a post in a topic Help looking for certain resin seats or kit with them.   

    That's what I been doing is watching junkyard lots to see if I can find the parts.  There's a 73 camaro on there with the seats, but I'm not paying 70 bucks for a kit.

    Help looking for certain resin seats or kit with them.
    I'm building a kit bash camaro. I am wondering if anyone makes resin car seats.  Does anyone make camaro seats? Is there a site I can go to and find custom interior for models? Worst case if anything let me know what kind of model kit to search out for these parts.
     
    I'm trying to find these exact seats/interior for my build.  I believe these are from a 73 camaro.

    You guys are the best.  I have a old photo account on there, hate all those ads on there now.  What a headache the site has now become.
