    Wasn't it Al Cowlings Bronco? Maybe I thought that because he was driving it. Wikipedia says it was a 1994. Yours looks good.

    Nice looking Monte. My brother had a light blue 76. Monte Carlos, Olds Cutlass's, and Pontiac Grand Prix's were some the cool cars in my teenage years. Flip the breather lid, hit the gas and make the four barrels moan. lol

    Nice job and almost everything looks great. The only thing that takes away from the build to me is the exhaust. It isn't correct for these cars out of the box. I also know this kit has the exhaust attached to the leaf springs. I don't detail under my models so it was easier for me to do but I cut my exhaust off and replaced it using coffee stirrers and also raised the springs from the front to raise the car some. I'm not trying to be critical of your car. You aren't the first one I've seen to just shackle the leaf springs on these kits to raise the rear of the car.

    Here's a pic of my 1:1 1981 Z28 and my replica using this same 1979 kit.

    I noticed him too. I think the car might go faster if he lost some weight. It looks like Peter Griffin is behind the wheel. lol Cool car.

    Thanks for all the compliments. A couple of you mentioned or asked about the color. The 1:1s color is called frost beige. The closest color I could find at Wally World was ivory. I took a few indoor shots in my light tent but they looked awful so I took it outside to get natural light.

    you mentioned getting my angles lower. I had some that were too low. I was trying to replicate the pics of the 1:1 and I think I came close.

    No, I'm not a member of NCRS. I'll look into joining.

    Replica of my 1981 Corvette
    I've been working on this for a couple of months now. I'm pretty happy with the results. The car is built from two 1/20 kits. Main kit it the MPC Stinger Corvette and a parts donor kit is the Monogram Corvette Coupe. I tried to get a few more angles, but these were the only ones I was happy with. The 1:1 I've owned since 2006.

    I can only speak for myself, but as the owner of a donut shop, I have local law enforcement where I want them. If they mess with me then they know I'll cut them off. lol
    BTW the donut and cop stereotype Isn't a myth.

    Some of the 1980-81 Z28s had factory wheels that looked like, if not identical to, mid 80s Monte Carlo SS wheels.

    This car was my daily driver for about 20 of the 23 years I've owned it. 50 miles a day, 6 days a week for 20 years. It does still have a 350 in it but I'm on about my third engine and it's nothing fancy. It looks faster than it is. lol

    Perfectly clear and thanks for the reply Dave. Actually, I'm on vacation next week so the timing is perfect to try your method. I hate that I messed up in the first place but when life deals you lemons as they say.........I'm looking forward to trying this. You gave me a schedule and everything. How did anyone learn anything before message boards? Thanks again.

    This sounds like great advice that I am going to try Dave. I just lost a painted and decaled body when I went to clear it because the paint was applied about two days before. DOH! It's in the "dip" as I speak. My question is I'm doing a replica of my 81 Corvette and I want my decals under the clear. They are small and not difficult to do but there are about 9 to apply. I want to take my time applying them so how long do I wait after I paint the color coat to apply them and how much time do I have after I'm done so the clear won't attack the color coat? I hope this isn't a confusing question.

    I also have an 81 Z28 and I never could put my finger on it with this kit but I think with the comments I just read and looking at the built model it absolutely looks like a T/A with Camaro bumpers. I just did a replica of my car using the 1979 Camaro Revell Streetburner kit. It's alot more accurate. The Testors kit is a cool looking hybrid though.

    Here's my 1:1 and model and I yes know the hood and fender vents are 79.

    It's a wife and two girlfriends. Technically a girlfriend and a half, but if the wife hadn't left I woudn't have been able to buy the Vette or the El Camino. Kind of like the man who told a friend that his wife left and took his dog and he was going to miss the dog.....
  14. leereyn added a post in a topic What do you drive?   

    As far as I know it is. I'm really not much of a gear head. I don't work on my stuff, I just drive them.

    My wife. 1981 Z28. We've been together 23 years.

    My girlfriends. I bought the 1970 454 SS El Camino in 2003. My brother owns half of it. I bought the 1981 Vette in 2006.

    My daily driver is a 1999 Honda Accord.
