'70.5 Baldwin Motion Camaro

Recommended Posts

This is going to be a fun little build. It's AMT's phase III camaro. It'll be dark blue with silver stripes, the baldwin motion body kit, and I'm thinking I'll fuel inject the 454. Maybe supercharge it, too. We'll see. Got these wheels at a local hobby shop for another model, but it turns out that the other model is 1/24 scale and too big for these, but they'll work well here. Also have drilled disc brakes for all corners as well. Probably going to have factory interior otherwise. Keep it looking simple and old school with a slight modern touch. Sorry for the dark picture. As always, comments/suggestions are welcome.

Found a little time to work on this today. Working on a tubular front end and the front suspension. I wanted working suspension, and so far so good. Need to replicate on the other side, and make a spindle yet. The kit one is there just for temporary mock up. Also, mind the pliers, they were used to push the spring down so the spindle stayed in place.

I started 2 of those kits years ago but never finished. They are nice kits. the wheels will definitely look good on that ride.

I hope so. They're a little smaller diameter than I'd like, but it looks as though I might already have to modify the front tubs (is that the right word? I'm not thinking so) to make it sit as low as I want. Assuming my suspension setup allows it. Why didn't you finish?

That suspension is impressive.

Thank you. It's going to take a little more work to get it where I want it, but I'll get it there. Still need to figure out how to get more precise with the rods that the parts pivot on though, I have photoetched nuts, bolt heads, and washers I'd like to use on those for a little added realism. Overkill, no doubt, but should be cool.
