Revell 1967 Camaro.

Recommended Posts

     I finished up the Revell 1967 Nickey Camaro this morning. I did my best to do it as an SS396 instead of the Nickey version. I went for the Day 2 look with the Cragar style rims. The color is Model Master Bright Aqua Pearl sprayed over Tamiya TS-17 Aluminum, and cleared with Model Master Gloss Clear, and BMF was used for all of the chrome trim. I used the stinger hood on my Gumball Rally Camaro, so I purchased a cowl induction hood from Lex's Scale Modeling on ebay for this one.

       The interior is done in white craft paint and I taped off and painted the seat stripes and door panels in black craft paint. The floorboards and dashboard are done in black craft paint as well. The steering wheel was de-chromed and painted in beige craft paint, and I went over the outside part with a brown sharpie marker for the woodgrain effect. The radio face, shift pattern and gauges are all decals included on the kit decal sheet.

       The chassis was left in Stynylrez black primer, the exhaust, gas tank and driveshaft are airbrushed in Vallejo Model Air Aluminum. The engine was airbrushed with orange craft paint and the Transmission was the Vallejo Aluminum as well. The wheels are from a used lot I bought on ebay a while back and the tires are from my parts box. The manifold and carb are from the AMT Baldwin-Motion Camaro and the air cleaner was taken from the MPC 1972 GTO kit. I added ignition wires and heater hoses for extra underhood details and also added valve stems on the rims and door locks on the door panels.  This is a really nice kit with great details and fitment and I really enjoyed the build. The mixture of indoor and outdoor pics shows the difference the sun makes with the pearl. As always, thanks for looking!!

Now that's nice! Beautiful paint, very clean looking build. It almost looks real, especially the outside shots.

Thanks Gareth, I've been trying to get more realistic pics to help with presentation, but I still need lots of help with my photography lol.

Looks good to me. There is a thread on the forum somewhere with tips on how to photograph your models. If you have a good camera it's worth a look, no good to me as my camera is useless, lol.

You really captured the Day Two look with this. In the pictures the paint color looks a lot like the Marina Blue of the time and was a very popular color at the time. Very nicely detailed interior and engine.
