Iaconio Camaro

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Haven't built anything in a while.

Starting the Monogram Frank Iaconio Pro-Stock Camaro.

I haven't been able to find very many pictures or information on this Camaro, so I will just use the box art and the few pictures I did find as a guide.

NP,it fits very well,may need some slight sanding on the edges.

Started on the body. It was molded in 3 pieces. The front and rear end is molded separate. The fit is pretty good. It will only need a little filler and some sanding.

Spent a lot of time getting the hood to fit good. There was a 1/32"gap in the front center fit up and I had to shim up both rear corners of the hood to get it to sit right.

I also started the motor. The motor and transmission are molded as one piece.

Overall, the quality of the kit is pretty good.

A little more work. Started working on the frame. Notice the second picture. The frame is twisted. I hope when I install the shock it will force the frame down. If not, I will apply a little heat to pull it into place. Also, a little more work on the motor.

Got the cage finished. It took a while to put it together and get it to sit correctly.

Well.... as I was cutting the windshield from the parts tree, it cracked. I can say that is the first time I have ever done that. I always use a razor saw to cut clear parts from the trees. Don't know why, but this time I used my side cutters and this was the result. Now I have to figure what to do. 

More to come, maybe.

While I am deciding how to finish the Camaro, I was looking at the unfinished models I need to finish. I was thinking of finishing my 49 Ford. What do you all think.
