AMT 70.5 Z28 Camaro


Recommended Posts

Hey its gettin warmer,,happy spring to all.  Just finished the AMT 70  1/2 Camaro,,I wanted it orange,,similar to box art,,but I used flat black primer,, sprayed w/Testors quikdry   "Flaming  orange"  it turned out  "Rootbeer Brown metallic"  ,,which is ok too I guess.   I should have used red or orange primer to get a better orange effect.  Changed out the kit tires with some larger /wider profile,,added some basic wiring in Ebay,,made some seat belts from x-tras bx ,,hand painted the trim work. I do use BMF  at times but not all the time,,depends on how crisp the molding  work is on the kit to begin with.  `Fun kit to do,,now on to my  68' Shelby GT-500  in pearl green,with the drag pack version!  Thanks for lookin,,and get out and enjoy the warmer weather!  Cheers.

Great clean looking build. The color still looks orange on my screen. The saddle colored interior looks correct also. 

Thanks all,,yea its kindof a dark orange,,was hoping it would have been more 'orange"  than it is.  Thanks for looks.

Very nice build and I think the exterior color looks great on this Camaro. The interior color also complements it well. 

I used this color on a build and while I liked what I saw I didn't think it matched at all with the cap on the can which was a much brighter orange.
