    Thanks Guys!
    I think part of the "problem" is that we know what a Camaro looks like and we know what a Mustang looks like.  It messes with the brain (putting two very familiar designs together as one) and the result is seeing other things in the composition as well.  I saw Torino, Falcon XB, Holden Commodore, 'Cuda as well as something AMC as it was coming together.  Now I've seen it so much it looks normal.

    It has a 429 Hemi.  The engine and under hood area are not detailed since it’s really just a curbside.  There’s about the same level of detail on the chassis.

    The knock offs are resin pieces I mastered and cast, the Goodyears are my decals and the mirrors came from the Mustang.

    I figured with an engine that size it should run 15 inch rims and full sized tires.  I used the Shelby wheels from the 429 Mustang kit.

    Then I guess it does have a Roch-Craft on it.  Kinda hard to tell with the lack of detail... =)

    No, I think I'll keep the blob that's molded on the manifold already. 
    FWIW, I've have no problem with Rochester carbs, (and I've had several, worked on many more), they worked great and were easy to work on when needed. 
    The only reason I went to Holley or other carbs was when I needed a carb that delivered more than 625cfm.

    Even though I was going to make it a curbside, I thought it still needed an engine.  So “logically” I stuffed a 1/24th scale 429 Hemi into the 1/25th scale Camaro bay…

    I finished and installed the interior.  I went with navy blue and gray (instead of black).  Added a wood grained shifter to match the steering wheel.  Seats and shifter are from a ’70 Camaro.


    I also got the taillights done.

    I narrowed the Mustang dash and made new mounting tabs for it so it would fit into the Camaro interior and line up with the cowl.

    I lengthened the package tray ½ an inch to extend all the way to the bottom edge of the rear window.

    More progress.  Glass and bumpers are installed.  Screens were added in the rear side scoops and the bottom of the hood scoop is in.

    The last of the paint is on it.  (More "different"...)  Next to do is the BMF window trim.

    I decided to put the name on the back in a similar style as a Mustang.

    Thanks Bruce.
     
    I’ve added the badging, new side marker lights and the side graphics.  I’m going for a vinyl stripe look for the sides.  That’s why there is blue around the door handles and locks

    Base color is on…

    I’ve done some additional modifications to the body trying to lessen the prominence of the Camaro styling details.  The ridge in the hood and header panel was turned into a soft peak.  The side louvers are being made into small scoops.  The front valence has been filled and smoothed and a center bar was added to the grille.



     
    I also changed the name to something more befitting a pony car.

    Yes, last year was an especially fulfilling year of building (and finishing) for me.  Thanks!
