Chevrolet El "Drag" Camino - 1965

Recommended Posts

Hallo everybody,

today i want to show you a two-week-built from February this year.

In times, when i built too much details, i need a simple kit to relax. Based on the amt kit (#6062) with the camper inside, i tested on this car, how to weather decals and to brush street dust on it.

Take a look:

Nice work Dominik. My favorite part is the Nevada license plate. lol

Takes a lot of skill to take a model to that level of wear and tear. You said you did that to relax from highly detailed work? Try again.

I love it! I've always been a fan of 'backyard racers', rough and tumble, diamonds-in-the-rough, that have got it where they need it (usually, under the hood...)!

I love the junk in the bed and the interior detail with the ripped headliner... One question, if you don't mind; how did you simulate the cracked dashpad? It looks real.

. There i made about 180 details of stuff, to give this camper a real look in and outside. In a rest of this built to take new energy, i made my DragCamino.

Thanks Eddy for comment.

The dash.

- First i painted the dash with a dark brown.

- Then i took a cutter and made the cracks in a form like a " \/ ".

- Next step was to paint the cracks with highly diluted paint of black and

- at last i carefully whiped the dash with thinner on a cotton swabs (Q-tip?).

The positions of the cracks i choosed from Porsche 924 or VW Beetle 1303 for example - they had much cracks when they getting older - and a little inspiration of my buicks dashboard.

Hope you could follow the steps?

My name is Rob Mattis and I approve of this build.

Wow man, that really looks sharp. The weathering looks very authentic. The cracked side mirror is genius.

FABULOUS details on this build. You know what Doctor Cranky is going to say, right?

LONG LIVE RUST!

This looks just great! I like the weathering of it, very realistic. Especially those Drag Camino textes are looking really good. And those parts on the bed are looking good too, keep these models coming.
