Hi,

I built this back in the late 1980's, before AMT had reissued the 1970 1/2 kit. I used a resin transkit (can't remember who made it) along with a 1976 (I think) kit to create this. Fred Cady supplied the decals.

At the time, I owned a 1971 Camaro, so I was able to go out to the driveway to measure stuff and check the details.

I had to change the shape of the back window to match the 1970 model, since the later version of the 2nd generation had a rear window that wrapped around the side of the pillar.

Thanks, I built it back in the day, before I was medicated. The doctors say I'm much better now.

It's not orange. The color is House of Kolor Goldmine Pearl over grey primer.

Roger,

I thought this was a real car when I first saw the pictures. The background and 'pavement' are real convincing.

BTW, A friend has a '73 Camaro in the same color. What color/paint did you use on this build?

Michael,that's Boyds True Blue Pearl over flat black. For some reason,I have better luck spraying blues and purples over black.

I wasn't sure if it was a factory color. It looks great though.

Except for the the split bump, the hood scoop and the side pipes it looks just like my friend's '73. It used to have the Cragers too. It's been a while since I've seen it and I think it now has Pro Stars.
