Replica of my 1/1 '85 Trans Am

Recommended Posts

Pretty close to what the 1/1 should look like at the end of this summer. The paint turned out a bit darker than the 1/1 but that may be lighting.

No engine shots, nothing to see, all black, . anyway,,

Seems to me that with ample skill applied this kit can come out stunning. Well done indeed sir.

:D;) Actually, it's a lot farther along than in this pic. It's only a few more hours work away from being ready for paint now. 

Here's what it looked like when I got it home,,

I'm not really a Firebird/Camaro guy, but wow, that's a beautiful model! The fade, the decals, great paint...and I liked the posed wheels too. I'm sure the model will make an excellent motivational tool as you move forward with the 1:1 project. If the real car comes out half as nice as the model, you'll have a sweet ride on your hands!
