    For those of you that didn`t catch the video, this kit is coming with decals in three colors!   I am assuming these will be like the smaller kit`s, coming in red, blue, tan/gold.

    Whooooaaaaa
    The `79 Firebird is going to have the big bird decals in 3 colors! My bank account is in trouble! Can`t wait to get a hold of that one!

    That looks spectacular Mike! They can`t release this one soon enough. If it does come with the bird in several colors, I am in trouble!

    Where is the 1/16 Firebird?

    So you built that Mike? That looks amazing. I built the original 1/25 scale version of the Anniversary Trans Am back in the 90`s. It was *very* difficult to get anything decent out of that kit because of part fitment, proportion issues, flash. etc. But that looks nearly perfect! The proportions look very close to the 1:1. 
    If we get a gold bird like the one in the pic, I will be ecstatic. I will be building at least two if that is the case. If it comes with multiple color birds, my checkbook and schedule are in trouble.
    So this is not under the new releases or anything. Is this available now?

    Sorry to bring up an old thread guys, but I saw this on the Round 2 webpage. It looks as though it is the trophy series Firebird or the Blackbird kit in gold with the anniversary hood and intake/carb`d intake engine. Thoughts?

    Looks great! Really like the colors that you used.

    Looking great! What did you do with the hood? Did you use the drag version hood from the kit as a starting point?

    Thanks guys. I will check out the milliput.
    It sounds as though you have experience with this. Do you have a suggestion for glue  for something like this? I am just thinking about the tight bend at the top....I would think it needs to be pretty flexible.I have tried something similar with model master liquid cement, which was too brittle for bends.
    Thanks!

    How to modify/create seat inserts?
    I am struggling with my current build, a 1/16th scale Camaro Iroc. Those of you who are familiar with the kit know that it has seats that have the Firebird pattern, and not the Camaro. So I need to remove the seat inserts (done already) and somehow make and install the Camaro design. My end goal is this:

    Now for reference, below is the 1/8 scale Iroc interior I did.
     
    So, I took off work and I spent the last few weeks working in paintbrush, highlighting what needs to be changed in red as you see below:

     
    Any ideas on how to get that design in those areas? For the 1/16 car, I do have front seats with the pattern. I have already removed part of the pattern from the front seat to try to recreate the backs using resin. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be working out. And this will need to be nearly perfect once complete. I have tried scribing the lines on stock styrene with no luck because of the sharp bend at the top of the back of the seat. 
    Any ideas?

    Here is the best I can since they are almost all sold now:


     


     

     

     

     

     

    There have been a few others throughout the years, but I either can`t find them or never took pictures of them. I remember building one in Silver/Black, Malboro Maroon/Black, and a dark blue color and Black.

    Thanks guys!
    Yeah, I am not sure what is up with the kit wipers. To my knowledge the are installed correctly, though they required some convincing, cutting, and some bending to fit, just like all the other ones Ive built,.

    So this is like number 13 or so I think. I lost track of how many I`ve built at this point.Pretty much my standard build. The wheels are my own cast design. Bob from Kustom Krome did an amazing job on them, The stripe had to be painted on. Let me know what you think.
