    Please, please a modern tool of the '67-72 Chevy truck. Short bed preferred.

    I just saw the '17 Camaro SS 1LE at the LHS and am severely disappointed that it's a snap kit. It appeared the rear spoiler and front splitter were separate pieces. What I really need to know to do a kit bash with the full detail '16 Camaro SS or the '17 Fifty Edition is if AMT actually took the time to tool up the wider wheels and tires of the 1LE or did they just fit the new wheels to the old SS tires. The 1:1 1LE tires are 40mm wider up front and 30mm in the back which is more than 1.25". It's a pretty major visual difference and one that model car companies are notoriously lazy at keeping up with.

    I like where this build is headed. Great work

    Cup o dirt that my daughter just brought me. Sure there's chalks and whatnot to simulate muck in scale but nothing looks more real than the real thing. Time to grab the strainer and keep the finest silt and get some filth on the chassis of the Jeep.

    Final coat of clear on. Second attempt at the body as the cat knocked it over on the final wet coat last weekend. I'm really impressed with the white Jeep decals in this kit. I've had white ones in the past that were printed too thinly and the base coat showed thru. These are strong enough that's it almost impossible to tell that they're decals at all. On my first attempt, I used the black but glad I went with white this time. Plays off the OD Green theme really well. I'm not terribly concerned with a show car finish given it's an off roader but I had a little orange peel that I'll have to polish out so into the dehydrator for a day or two nap.

    Interior coming together. First time using embossing powder. A heavy brush coat of XF-1 gave me the sprayed in Line-X bedliner look I was after on the interior tub.

    Not sure why I keep getting locked out of the site for stretches at a time when I try to log in from my phone but assembly is now in progress. Dry brushing some trail damage to the underside of the Jeep is complete. Once I get the wheels on and up on all fours I'll add in some real dirt for more effect.

    Managed to get a base coat of Tamiya OD Green 2 down over to Duplicolor gray primer to get a feel for the color. I'll lay down a few wet coats today. If time permits, the rest of the parts are primarily shades of black and a few stainless pieces so I should be able to get them shot today as well.

    AMT 2017 Camaro SS 1LE
    I found that this AMT '17 Camaro SS 1LE is due out soon but unfortunately as a snap kit. If they manage to get the visual changes that come with the 1LE i.e. the front splitter, rear spoiler, wheel and tires (please, please let the wheels and tires be the proper, wider width in comparison to the regular SS. That's what really sets the meaner look of the 1LE apart) correct how difficult would it be to swap them over to the full-detail '16 Camaro SS or '17 Fifty Edition? I would imagine a great deal of the tooling has to be shared and that the bodies would be interchangeable or the parts would be separate. I'm seriously considering ordering a '17 1LE in 1:1 to replace my '10 Camaro 2SS/RS and would love a model of it.

    I saw this the other day as well. After some digging I saw that AMT also has a 2017 Camaro SS 1LE coming but it is a snap kit. I hope the body can be swapped onto the full detail 2016 Camaro SS or the 2017 Fifty Edition if it's full detail. That and please, please have the tires and wheels actually be wider on the 1LE than they are on the regular SS. It's a huge part of what gives the 1LE it's killer look. I'm seriously debating ordering a 1:1 1LE to replace my '10 Camaro 2SS/RS

    ISO rear differential and "batwing" rear cover from Revell Dodge Viper SRT10
    I do believe the parts from the SRT10 Viper roadster and the ACR are identical if my memory serves me correctly. TIA

    I'll have to dig thru my hard drive for old pics of my first go with the Rubicon. I can't seem to get into my old Photobucket account. The Jeep was my first attempt at weathering so I'll attempt to improve upon that for sure
