'69 Camaro LZ-1

Recommended Posts

The 1969 Camaro ZL-1, one of the first "Muscle Cars".

Built from Revell's excellent kit #85-4056. This kit dang near fell together on it's own. Modifications included opening the front grill, AMT Goodyear "Polyglas GT" big 'n' little tires, Model Car Garage Detail Set MCG-2068, plug wires and fuel lines.

Paint is Model Master No.28108 Hugger Orange covered with multiple coats of No.28319 Ultra Gloss Clearcoat.

Very nice model, but it's not "one of the first muscle cars." Not even close.

Nice work!,how did you open the grill?, it's the next kit i'm building and the grill looks like it would be pretty frail after.

I just kept grinding away with the dremel,  and it is really fragile. I did have to do a little re-inforcing along the way.

Great looking ZL-1 ,  Nicely detailed and the perfect color !  And Snake is right . . . the "Muscle" car started way back in '64 with the GTO .

Very nice looking model! 

I believe the Camaro/Mustang/Cuda body size was called a "Pony Car" (although not very often).

It's not red, it's Hugger Orange. He said so. 

BTW, I've noticed in real car mags that Hugger Orange often photographs on the reddish side. If you see a '69 Camaro in a magazine and you can't tell if it's Hugger Orange or bright red, it's Hugger Orange. '69 Chevy Garnet Red is notably darker, about like Testor #4 Dark Red.
