Since all the nay-sayers out there have called me out, I figured with this freezing weather we're having here (it got down to 70 last night!!!), I would see if I could get some building done.

I will use this thread to post all the current builds of the new kits that came in over the past month as well.

If it gets any colder at night Gregg, you may have to "fire up" the furnace.

I think I am going with this set up for the grille and bumpers.

The headlights are from Bob Dudek.

I think I am happy with the two-tone. It's Testers' Root Beer on the bottom, Tamiya Metallic Black on the top.

Will try and do a very thin pinstripe in a contrasting color, or maybe chrome between the two colors.

You definately need a pinstripe in a contrasting color, it makes a world of difference! Like this:

In the situation of the pickup with the yellow pinstripe, I assume is is painted and not tape. If so, what is the process? Is the strip painted last by masking everything else? Or, is the yellow painted first and then masked before painting the other colors? Just curious--67 years old and still learning!! Merry Christmas to all!!

Hey Gregg, Maybe a subdued gold pinstripe as it would be nice with the rootbeer color. Then white wall tires with a thin gold stripe!

I don't mean to hijack Gregg's thread. The yellow pinstripe is tape.....! I believe I did a little story about it some time ago, like a year or so.....

Looks very cool, Greg. Really like the paint combo & finish. A fine pinstripe would look good. Love the wheels & the stance.

I have done my fine striping with decal film cut to the width I am looking for.

Thanks, Scott. I will try and find some of that decal paper in the gold, or red, or other contrasting color. I tried it once before, didn't have good luck I think.

I have some decals from other aftermarket kits that has some stripes, maybe that would work.

I tried to order the Line O Tape from their site, but I can't get through to the ordering final page. Has anyone else been able to?

The re-issue of the '69 Camaro by Revell

I'll be adding white stripes, of course.

Not sure if going with this grille, or my favorite, the SS grille with the back side sanded down, leaving a true hollow front grille.

Maybe someone can call him/them tomorrow and see what's up?

I tried emailing, but I got no response either.

It's really looking good so far. I've always loved that root beer color, and the two-tone is a great idea!

This is an older project, hate the way the finish is around the windows.

Hopefully I can sand it out.

And to think that EYEGORE thought all you did was drink Lion's Kona Blend and lean back on a hammock all day long! Geez, these are some nice models, Big Kahuna. Oh, and thanks for the wonderful Holidays cheers!
