1970 Baldwin Motion Camaro 454

A couple weeks back I built the '70 Camaro Z28 in anticipation of the single headlight Camaro coming up and I had this Baldwin Motion Camaro sitting around for a year now so I thought lets just complete the set. Again, even while its better molded than the Z/28, it's... still a thing. That knuckle-dragger stance was long set in glue before I even remotely realized they would sit that low. Honestly, I'd have to graft the headers to sit at the rocker covers or cut out a chunk between in order to fix that. Not to mention, for some inexplicable reason the front just never wanted to meet the chassis frame, neither did it on the Z/28 but man it's really bad on this one. But, I actually really like the way it came out - especially as a test for home-made little extras like the decals(I never could've anticipated quite how well the air cleaner decal would look), plumbing and the hood pin wires. Not to mention that Tamiya paint, it pops quite nicely in the sun.
