El Camino!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, been a  while since I finished something but here it is , the MPC 86 El Camino. Box stock with Testors lacquer. Duplicolor engine blue for the interior and tonneau cover. It was fun because it's different than the usual stuff I build!  Some finicky areas to deal with but for the most part it went to the other wel finicky areas to deal with but for the most part it went together well.  Not the best job I've ever done but it looks cool on the shelf .  Thank you for looking and I'll say it anyway , Mopar to ya lol. 👍IMG_1271.thumb.JPG.ac938d877159bf46048c3df5d0e23073.JPGIMG_1272.thumb.JPG.216fb391888d0b4b70e1ae3f0add91b1.JPGIMG_1273.thumb.JPG.fb98c1c449b64b138b78d6df16fe8664.JPGIMG_1274.thumb.JPG.6cf9a79b44c6eaede3b0bd002cd3a310.JPGIMG_1275.thumb.JPG.5bbaca12d119b5f589aecaca1fa9c373.JPGIMG_1276.thumb.JPG.1cc5d6308abaaccbce1b370cbfcec5dd.JPGIMG_1278.thumb.JPG.f9dafa05526f1a5eec6d975cb7351a99.JPG

Fantastic!  My dad had one of these in that exact paint scheme.  I've got one in the stash for the replica, hope it comes out half as nice:wub:

Very very nice , love the white with blue interior !  Let me guess . . . gluing the SS nose to the body was a royal pain ,  and those itty bitty side mirrors !!:blink:

Not my favorite El Camino body style, but nice job! The wheels and tires really POP on that thing.

I'm not a Chevy guy, by any stretch, but I would own an ElCamino! Any year would do!

This one in the SS trim has a unique look that really stands out. Well done on this example!!

Nice clean looking build. I like the SS style interior and exterior. Ask anyone else who has owned a Monte Carlo SS, Chevrolet didn't do any better with the fit and finish on the rubber noses on these cars.
