    No real progress to report, have a few ideas rattling in my head I need to figure out how to translate into real fife. As soon as I do though I'll update you guys.
    i appreciate your interest!

    67 Camaro - trans am inspired with a modern twist
    So take a bit of trans am racer, a dash of pro touring and a pinch of the tuner scene and we have what's in my head for this one. I picked up the bits to get this one going at NNL East, and just had to start it. Progress will be slow as I have a couple builds I really need to get finished, but I knew I needed to at least get this one started. 
    I started with a Revell 67 and a set of C1 models flares, great peices and really do replicate the bumblebee car it was modeled after. 

    however, I don't like like how these and many flares look when on the stock opening, almost looks raised and really is not pleasing to my eye. So a rough sanding later I mocked them up higher on the fenders and glued into place.

    after hogging out the wheel openings this is where the work came in. I quickly realized this wasn't going to be as easy as just slapping on some flares. 
    Styrene sheet glued in to smooth out the inner lip and give a little substance


    then the shaping / sanding started. The pressure cast resin sands really nice, and gap filling CA really takes well to it. Here we see me checking progress after shaping the rear flare.

    a couple bench sessions later I got all 4 shaped to my liking and started mocking things up. These may not be the final wheels and tires, but I do like them. 

    im picturing a play on either the old Sunoco or gulf theme trans am paint colors, but we have a while before I have to decide on that.

    Plus with a blower being an option that would fill the gap a bit.

    The body is 2 parts on the examples at NNL east

    Use the roof on these? Heck I bet it would work given how close this is

    They had this at NNL east. Looks VERY good in its present form and it is obvious they were going for a hot rod version, not a stock model a. Some notes worth mentioning.
    -there is 8 nubs on the distributer, I verified with my own eyes.
    -the body is 2 pieces and the fitment is very good, which leads me to believe there could be other variants coming. (Maybe a stock height roof with a standard insert) 
    -the SBC looks amazing, some might not be happy, but it's appropriate and the speed parts are worth the price of admission (my opinion) 
     
    it was a very good looking piece in person, and I know I'll be ordering quite a few as soon as they are out!

    A pair of spoons could make pretty neat front fender pods.. 
    Eric gave me that idea so I'm not claiming it

    Really good outline of a lot of well thought out work. I love this stage of the build, the part that unfortunately no one notices unless you do it wrong. Looks like you are hitting the nail on the head to me!
