Here’s my build of the MPC ‘86 El Camino. It’s a box stock build of the recent release with the mini trail bike. Despite being the reason I sought this particular kit, I ended up not building the mini bike because it’s fitment was terrible and I got frustrated with it. I might try it again later but into the parts box it went. The actual car itself builds up decently well for the age of the tooling, and the decals settled down very nicely. I painted the interior Krylon Pimento and the exterior Tamiya XF-56 Metallic Gray with three coats of Pledge floor gloss (one coat under the decals, two over). I gave the bed cover a wash of Tamiya black panel line accent to give it some dimension. The red-orange interior definitely isn’t a factory color but it really sets off the red-orange decal stripe so I’m pleased with the look!
