1973 Chevy Camaro Z28 F-Bomb Project


Recommended Posts

Hi again guys,

This is a Chevy Camaro Z28 from AMT, I built this model to resemble the real Camaro Z28 F-Bomb Project built by Tom Nelson from Nelson Racing engines, you might have seen this car on the fourth installment of The fast and the furious movie.

I printed the F-bomb decal myself and also added the rear spoiler,the parachute and the roll cage. I also wired the engine and changed the wheels.

The color is Tamiya Olive Drab 2 (TS-28).

Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

Very cool!  Wanna race my A-Bomb?

I see you converted a RS to a regular Camaro, but it is missing the parking lights under the bumper. And did you know the RS has a longer "snout" that is not molded in compared to a regular Camaro?

Wow love it!! I'm wanting to build one of these so might pic your brains for info.

Where and what wheels did you use for the build?


Well, I really wanted the model to have the closest resemblance to the real F-Bomb Camaro, however I couldnt find any set of wheels that match.

I have several sets of wheels which I didn't use for my previous built models, so I used tamiya Porsche 911 turbo rear wheels and fujimi skyline R32 wheels for the front. All of them were painted flat black.

That paint is a pretty good match for the custom mix 'F'ing Green' used on the 1:1. Now, the question is- are you going to tackle the reborn Crusher Camaro next? :rolleyes:

I haven't got a chance to take a closer look at the real crusher camaro but I will look into it soon, is it a 67 or 68 Camaro if I may ask??
