Firebird 25th anniversary

Recommended Posts

When I look back, I realise a lot of nice cars have been forgotte. That's why I decided to build a few Firebirds...This is the 25th Anniversary edeition...

ย 

I love white cars and this one was painted GM real white. I made the blue metallic stripes with my ALPS printer. The car is built box stock but I added plug wires and seat bealts. I think it would be a missing detail otherwise.

I'm not crazy about cars that came after 1971, but yours looks really cool!

Looks real nice!,the only thing the kit misses on is no rear side marker Iights,the Camaro kits have the same problem for some reason.

Beautiful build!!

The Torque arm is on wrong though. It should go beside the driveshaft on the drivers side, not underneath the driveshaft.

I have a 1:1 '95 in my garage...

The engine details looking very good!

Could it be, that this is the Revell / Monogramm kit? I noticed the missing rear side marker as well and had to check my Firebirdsย (all by AMT/ERTL) whether I missed them to. But they are right there so I guess, Revell missed it.

Sadly, the front bumper doesn't fit properly. Another issue by the model kit to take care before painting. I solved this while I cement the front bumper before I paint the body. So I can set my hand to it to close the gap.

I still have the model kit in my shelve by AMT. Maybe someday it'll be next to my built ones.
