Revell 69 Camaro in Hugger Orange

Recommended Posts

Started yesterday, I believe that anyone that builds Camaros needs to have a Hugger Orange 69 on their shelf. Here is mine. Painted with Testors Hugger Orange and wet look clear. I took off the Camaro emblems for a cleaner look. This will be built out of the box except for tires and wheels. In other words, the cross ram intake with headers and the barely there exhaust system. I'm using the non SS grille on this build as well. I have a simple black interior to go along with the orange body.

I want to put the black stripes on this, I hope they cooperate.

Beautiful color on my favorite Camaro model year!  You can't go wrong with Hugger Orange and the paint looks really shiny!  Very good start sir!

Yours looks great. I'm working on one too. Kind of a street strip car with no spoilers. Sorry for the bad pic. Best I could do with that phone.

Engine is done, straight from the box except for removing the chrome plating from the carbs and painting them Tamiya metallic grey.

Basic black interior without center console but with a set of aftermarket gauges installed. I'll paint the shifter knob white before final assembly.

Okay, that's it for now, all comments welcomed and thanks for checking it out.

I like the no console look. I'm building the RS/SS convertible in the same color, but I think I'll do the seats in white with the houndstooth decals. 

I hope you use the rally stripes on the hood/trunk, I want to see how they work on the cowl hood bulge.

Engine and frame completed. I took some mock up pictures of it sitting on wheels. Tires are AMT Firestone from the new 70 Chevelle release while the backs are the tried and true L60x15 AMT Goodyears. Wheels are MPC open wheel rally from the various Corvette kits.

With some time and a Dremel I was able to open up the grille.
