Yo Harry - can you put some words with your pics? I like the look of that red Camaro, but can't exactly figure out what you did to it.

I put a whole different front end on it. A lot more like the original (I love retro styling!).

That looks like it could have been a real one! Nice.

here is my concept for what Ford might have made if they had made a beefy "big brother" to the 67 Mustang: a 67 Galaxy Sport Coupe

Man, that is SWEET !! Take a car with basically nice lines, get rid of about 800 pounds of un-necessary fat, and produce something really beautiful. THAT's another one I'd like to see in 1:1.

Thank you for the "thumbs up", this is in my "future project list" if I can find a '67 Galaxy cheap enough, lately peeps seem to want a fortune for glue bombs and the price goes up from there if it's unbuilt.

this is nice, looks like something you'd have seen in Canada or Australia (except for it not being "right hand drive").

I like the retro front end better than how GM released their current style, Dodge really hit a home run when they produced the new retro Challenger, their Charger I'm not so fond of...

Yeah, that had crossed my mind too. I wondered if I should've just left the roof alone, I thought it started looking more like a conventional 69 Fairlane.

Just one more because this is actually something I've been kicking around a while. 64 Riviera with a 66 roof. These exercises help visualize what the issues might be before I cut into plastic. I started my Cannonball car this way.

Both the Camaro's look better than the real one. I don't care for the front on the real one at all. IMO

A what if I'd like to build in scale is to kitbash the roof of an AMT '65 Galaxie onto an AMT '65 Lincoln to make a phantom 2dr.

Knockout drop-dead gorgeous. I'd stand in line at the Chevy dealer to get one of those.

I have a particular weakness for mix 'n match illustrations à la Harry Pristovnik. It's the main reason why I switched from building only semi trucks to a bunch of mix 'n match cards like my http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/uploads/post-12144-0-10715600-1373870979.jpg and my Lambo 300, I wanted to see my ideas in 3D. Those of mine were done prior to my getting to computers and graphic arts. Now I can butcher cars in PhotoShop in moderately convincing manner (or lately in CorelDRAW since my newer computer can't handle my old PhotoShop 7 and I can't afford a CS3 upgrade).

Such as the section I did to this unfortunate '59 Fury...

Or transforming what I consider the 'worried look' of factory Jeep Libertys into something more retro...

Can't wait 'til when I can get into the sort of virtual 3D drawing as seen in this 3D drawing blog.

Thinking about building this one in scale. It's a 1966 Karman Ghia with a 911 flatnose roof and a whale tale. Just a simple rendering I made in paint.net.

these are hilarious. What programs are you guys using to smash up these pics?

I use PaintShop Pro, currently have version4 but version-5 looks like it has some nifty new features. it's a bargain compared to Photoshop and it's good (and relatively easy to use) for non-professional users.

I believe Harry uses a real professionals program, Photoshop.

my hat's off to real photoshop users but usually it takes a real need (and usually a LOT of time) to learn how to use photoshop to it's fullest.

Thanks, I knew/understood that Photoshop could take a lot of time, but always interested in more simple and cheaper programs that will still allow some more simplified photo manipulations.

corel is the current publisher of paintshop pro, they've been running special prices on it recently so you might get it for a good price.

Harry, from your Photoshop file to the Brass at GM's ear, having just purchased a 2013 Camaro, Your rendering showing the '69 beak and stripe graphic on the silver Camaro is the only thing in my mind that could have made this car better! Nicely done!
