  1. 69NovaYenko added a post in a topic Pinholes In My Resin Parts-HELP   

    Just a followup on the pin hole/ dimples issue I had with my resin hood. After five nights and one Saturday afternoon of tediously working on it (sand/ rinse/touch up prime/wait for it to dry/ access the results...sand/ rinse/touch up prime/wait for it to dry/ access the results..sand/ rinse/touch up prime/wait for it to dry/ access the results..blah..blah) I finally got the part to look 99% better.  I want to take a moment to thank everyone who took the time to give advise and assistance with the issues I was having with the resin part.
    Art, truer words have never been spoken when you stated "it can be a PIA".  It was absolutely a test of my patience and resolve as well as a genuine PIA...LOL!!!  When you take into account the amount of hobby hours invested into making this one part useable for my project its a shame. I refuse to publicly bad mouth the caster from whom I purchased the part, its not my style. Moving forward I assure you I will be more mindful about who I acquire resin parts from. :-)      Overall, I view this challenge as a learning experience and in some twisted way wish to thank the resin caster for giving me this challenge so I could broaden my modeling skill sets. However, that said I assure you I will be not be purchasing any additional parts from them...LOL!   
    Additionally, this challenge has afforded me more insight about the resin casting process, largely due to the knowledge many of you seasoned forum members have dropped on me...thank you.
    It is said "any landing that you can walk away from is a good one"...."what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"...."the best knowledge is hard earned knowledge"...."live and learn"...."either your glass is half empty or half full"...etc. So,at the end of the day I look at this experience as a good thing. Many, many, many thanks to all those individuals who contributed in helping me overcome this modeling challenge. 
    Best to you all,

    I concede that the green Dana Camaro is a `68.
    So, I submit for your viewing the following picture of a `67 Dana Camaro 427 car with the same hood:

    True the only thing you need would be the distinctive dual scoop fiberglass hood.

    `67 Camaro RS/SS NICKEY-Revell
    I just heard that Revell is suppose to release in the first quarter of this year a `67 Camaro RS/SS Nickey kit under their Motor City Muscle banner.  I`m also pleased to see a "Nickey" car being done..after all Motion and Yenko weren't the only players in the dealer prepped hi-performance super car game during the `60-70. Does anyone have any additional info on this new arrival?

I`m also pleased to see a "Nickey" car being done..after all Motion and Yenko weren't the only players in the dealer prepped hi-performance game during the `60-70.

    Rally Sport Grill 4 "NEW" Revell `67 Camaro?
    Are there any of the talented resin caters out there doing an RS (Rally Sport) grill for the "NEW" Revell `67 Camaro? If not what`s you with that, (IMHO) I would be astonished if it wasn't a marketable piece. I`m just asking....

    I had no interest in a `65 Coronet is the reason I did not purchase one when the kit first came out in 2005. It wasn't until this week when a forum member commented to a topic I posted that the kit had a very nice exhaust system.This was the factory exhaust offered on the car in `65. You had the option to use the side dumps for racing or plugging the dumps sending the exhaust to the mufflers to daily driving. Now eleven year later I`m searching the net for the kit solely for the exhaust and possibly the engine. If I find one I like to get a resin caster to do up several for me. I can see them used under a number of street drag car projects.
