82 Camaro Pro Stock - FINISHED 11/04/16

Recommended Posts

I've been away from models for a while but have just recently got back in and couldn't be happier.  This build will be using the Reher Morrison third gen camaro, but will be built a little different. I've always loved third gens and have a 1:1 of my own. I will be adding some extra details with parts from Ted's modelling marketplace. Thanks for looking!

Nice. Cage is looking really nice.  I also gave this kit. Not started yet.  I hear that the body is pretty flimsy and difficult to work with.

Nice start! Great color combo. I had a 1:1 back in the day and hated to give it up, but I got married and the rest is history.

Thanks for all the comments guys, it's really appreciated. Just have few small updates. I got the battery and fuel cell finished and ran some wires back for the fuel pump.  I got most of the rear end done and should be putting it in fairly soon

Overall the body isnt too bad. The front and rear fascias could definitely fit a little better, but it's not the worst I've had to deal with.

A few more updates for everyone. I got the headlights in and made some block off plates for behind the singal light openings. I still need to get a fine tipped paint marker to finish up the front end as well as for the taillights. I also got the rear end in and got the body mocked up. It needed a bit of trimming but overall fits pretty well. 

Constructive criticism is always welcome. I'm always looking to improve my model building, so any comments or ideas on how to make things better are appreciated.

I'd be proud to own the 1:1!

Thanks for the compliments guys! 

I got a few more small things done over the last few days. I got my pre-wired distributor from Ted's modelling marketplace and got it installed on the motor. I also made some fuel lines for the fuel pump and on the motor as well as added a fuel pressure gauge. This was my first time attempting fuel lines and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I also made an msd box and got it wired in. Thanks for looking

Well done nice engine details, did you use small beads for some of the fuel fittings?

Thank you! I used Pro Tech hex line fittings for the fuel lines on the motor. The ones on the fuel cell are small beads I found at local craft store, but I think I'm gonna redo them. The pro tech fittings provide a much more realistic look.

The beads idea is great.I don't know why I never thought of that myself.And I guess they come in different colors,such as blue and red.Welp I'm gonna run out to Michaels Crafts.In NY,that's the name of our craft stores.In case u were wondering who Michael was.Ha?.And the car looks great.I had a good friend of mine build this Camaro in the same color.

Well I was able to get the motor plumbed and installed finally. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I also ran a line back for the parachute and made a small handle up front.
