Revell 1969 Camaro Z28 Scooby Doo Tribute.

Recommended Posts

         Finished with my Scooby Doo tribute build for his 50th "birthday". Revell 1969 Camaro Z28 done in Testors Root Beer One Coat Lacquer and finished with Testors Wet Look Clear. Interior is done in Rustoleum Satin Canyon Black with some BMF on the door panels. I added plug wires on the engine for added detail there and used a Metallic Silver Sharpie on the molded in brake and fuel lines.

          I did add a few more details on this one that I haven't done before. Thanks to some help on this forum I was able to make a pair of deep dish rims for the rear. I added valve stems on all four wheels thanks to Pat Cardinal from one of the Facebook model groups I'm in for that tutorial. I also added door lock knobs on the door panels using pretty much the same technique as the valve stems. You might not be able to tell in the pics, but I also drilled out the hidden headlight doors to show the headlights.

         This one fought me a little bit even though I had no problems building the same kit last year. Most of the problems were self inflicted due to rushing the project. For some reason I kept repeating my mistakes and will chalk this one up to sometimes things just don't go your way.

          I have to say that despite the self inflicted issues, I'm pretty happy with my Scooby Doo Tribute Car. Thanks for looking!

Turned out super nice! The Root Beer I think is the only color I haven't used in the One Coat line and now it looks like I'm going to have to pick one up.

Nicely done, the Camaro looks great in those colors. Like Keith, Root Beer is one I haven't gotten but I may have to rethink that after seeing this build.

Nice but I don't get the connection to Scooby Doo.

Thanks, mainly based on Scooby is a brown dog with black spots and the car is brown(albeit a darker brown) with black stripes. Just having a little fun with it.
