ScottH454 added a topic in On The Workbench1970 Baldwin Motion CamaroHello, Thought I had enough to start a thread.
Back story is started this about seven years ago, when my apartment was burglarized they scattered the model over the floor getting to my PC. I gathered the parts an only recently to give it another shot. The only thing I was missing was a back wheel, the whole time not knowing what was ruined a wheel wasn't to bad. I actually bought another kit just for a replacement.
Ok first issue I had was the kit engine block was not very good, so I found the one engine I was always impressed by (Baldwin Motion Camaro (Skip's Fiesta). After cutting the transmission off I wanted to be able to use it in other kits. Which got me into resin casting an that is what I have here. This engine will be all resin so it can be reproduced.
When it came to the intake the kit one an any others I could find where to long. Even the other engines on line had this issue. So i started with the kit intake an reworked it to match photos of an original intake.
With a different engine I wanted to add new more realistic engine mounts. Not to bad, but little rough still.
This chassis is from the second kit, first one was over painted trying to look right an ended up loosing the detail. Done in red oxide primer with bad attempt at black wash. Was happy to learn about pastels cause they saved my butt.
Working on adding brake lines. Found a silver stranded wire from a bigger power supply wire that I wrapped around a brake line to be the rock guard. that looks good, but it needs clamps yet.
Finally a photo of a embossing powder carpet. First tried a white glue, but it dried to fast for me to cover it in one shot. So this was with a wet coat of rattle can black, dumped on the powder then then shook off the rest. I had used semi black an the powder is more dull so I resprayed it with flat black. does look loke bedliner, but carpets not fuzzy. Maybe it can be sprayed semi to help.
This has been a slow build to here, but aslong as I don't get stuck I"ll keep posting.

ScottH454 added a topic in GeneralParts DirectoryIs there such a directory that has a list of the quality/detailed parts an from what kits have them? Building a Baldwin Motion Camaro an looking for a replacement intake. Ended up replacing the rest of the engine, but the intake they had was too long for their block an for the new one I have. Got it filed down but lost the flange for the bolt holes on the ends. So just got to thinking how nice it would be to know what new kit I could buy to find a better detailed intake. Thanks
