    Looks like the post-war version; re-designated the F-15 Reporter. There were streamlining changes to the cockpit, but they were left in bare metal finish. Nice looking build!

    Hmm, I have to ask those who recommend the recent telease of AMT's 70-1/2 Camaro but not the 90's release: what changed? I don't recall any real issues with that tool, except some minor missing seam on the dash, and maybe wheel spacing issues? What was updated/fixed in the newer release?

    How's this one coming? It's off to a good start; always loved these body styles.

    Nice. Is the car you're referencing a Larry Watson job? Looks like his style...

    Really liking this build! Here's a few nice reference pics:

    Scroll down on that last one to see the '68 model year.
    If I may suggest, I'd knock down the simulated seams on your vinyl roof to half or less their current thickness (height). You're replicating just a couple layers of vinyl, which at 1/25 would be a VERY subtle effect. I only offer this because exagerrated vinyl detail is a pet peeve of mine and can ruin an otherwise beautiful model. Yours is coming along SO nicely, it deserves to look its best! Keep sweatin' the details, and happy building!

    VERY handsome interior, would look good in lots of cars!

    Lambo doors are SO year 2000. Even Lambo doesn't use them as much any more. This style custom screams ol' fashioned suicide doors, or no door mod at all. My 2 pennies.

    Agree that there is really no bad choice here! This is a svelt body style, and all your wheel options look very stylish, so it really comes down to personal taste; which do YOU prefer? Looking forward to the finished project.

    " After applying the foil, but before cutting it, lay a piece of blue painters tape along the edge that you want to cut. It will give you a nice straight line & the edge of the tape will give you a guide for your blade to ride against while cutting. Also, the blue tape will give you a color contrast so that it's easier to see what you're cutting."
     
    Another tip that works well for me: color the tip of your blade with a black sharpie; it lessens distracting reflections.

    That blue is beautiful - a perfect choice, and well executed! Keep it up!

    The "short cap" Rallyes were not a one year only option. The short cap denotes disc brakes, and is lettered as such in a circle on the caps. Tall "Derby Hat" center caps read "Chevrolet Motor Division".

    That is a nice dark red. If I were doing one for myself, it'd be triple red: red vinyl top, red leather interior, and red paint.  Looking forward to yours for now!
