I`ll be watching this thread. I agree with you on the proportions. Alot of weirdness with the kit engine. I was debating back-dating this kit to a `68 or `69 if I ever get time to build again. If you have need during your build, I have an assembled one of these if you want me to snap some pics from different angles.
Yeah, I would love to see this, It seems this is overdue as they have already re-released the `57 since the last release of the Corvette kit, and I believe we have seen the Camaro twice in that time. I`m also waiting to see if we will ever see the `79 or `80 Trans am or the `78 or `81 Corvettes in 1/8 scale. We`ve seen the Iroc and a host of other 1/8 kits in recent years. I am still seeing the `79 kit go for over $300 every now and then. I know we don`t want to see yet another Camaro, but I think a Revell version of the `70 Camaro is long overdue.
I have built two of these so far, along with the `56, and want to build more when I get the time. They build up real nice. If I had to choose from the list above, I would have picked 3. But IMO, the accuracy of the above kit eclipses that one. I really like them with the Torq Thrusts from the `56 kit:
I was wondering if this was going to come up. I have been thinking about this same thing. I used to be into RC`s in the late 80s/early90s. I just recently started buying older cars and installing new internals. I have Grasshoppers and Hornets that have a brushless/lipo setup that, if my numbers are correct, should reach a speed of 73mph theoretically. Of course they never reach that because they end up crashing into something or flying out of control first. Anyway, the electronics were surprisingly cheap to do this, very inexpensive. To go half as fast, we probably would have spent double the $$ back in the day. It just makes me wonder how much farther electrics in automotive applications have come in the past 5 -10 years. I am betting far further than our perceptions.
Thanks guys. i started posting my finished 1:12 builds in the completed section, fyi. I don`t think I posted the recent L-88 and tri-power in the Big Boyz section, FYI. Oh, and I am pretty excited for you guys to see what I have been working this year, but you will have to wait til close to the end of the year.
