      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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

    First new project in years-Rubicon
    Bought a kit for the first time in years last night. I paced the rack for about 20-30 minutes looking for a simple project to get myself back in the game that didn't give me the urge to kit bash, scratch build and ultra detail the heck out of it. This pretty much eliminated any pro-touring or modern sports car fodder. I whittled my stash down to about a half dozen or so projects a few years ago. Each has a definite plan in place all with a fair amount of modifications. 
    I had the original Tomb Raider diecast that I displayed for years on a shelf at work until a co-worker bounced it off the floor. The only thing that I really remember having an issue with was the fact there was no inner door panel on the tailgate. This should be a fun little curbside to get my skills back in practice.

    What Did You Get Today?
    Actually picked this up last weekend but it is the first car that I've owned that I can actually build a model of.

    2010 Camaro 2SS/RS in Inferno Orange with the Inferno Orange leather interior. She had just shy of 9500 miles on her when I brought her home last Saturday.

    Sorry for the delayed response Chris. Work has been insanely busy. I will check with Manny. He may have them and has not had a chance to update the site.

    Again, great work Chris and I'm glad that I could help you out by getting the LS7 cast.

    I've got one of the '65 Chevys in the stash that I've been trying to find someone that'll swap the stepside bed for the fleetside one from the '64.

    That's absolutely sick, Chris. Great work.
  12. LOBBS added a post in a topic '69 Pro-Touring Camaro   

    Yep, there are a couple of sets from Scale Production that will probably end up in my stash. I like a lot of the Hobby Design wheels but they rarely come with tires. If I knew the Aoshima tires would fit reasonably well on the Hobby Design wheels I'd have a ton of those. Ma's Resin casts the Aoshima tires at a pretty good price.

    I use sanding sticks from a local beauty supply store. They come in various grits. Just use the heavier grits to remove most of the material from the back then switch to the lighter grits once you get close. I don't like using power tools for this kind of work so it can be a long process but it's worth it.

    Here's the website for VCG. For more info on what I've sent Manny to cast there is a thread in the Resin and Aftermarket section.
