1/12 `69 Camaro Z/28 Cross-Ram...Black

I posted this one a while back, but I had to get some pictures of it today, and I thought I would share them since the previous pictures weren`t that great.

Anyway, this another typical build for me...period correct inspection sticker, window sticker reduced and printed from a real `69 window sticker, chalk markings, brake lines, etc. It`s hard to choose, but I think this is my favorite color scheme for this car.

That's ultra-nice. Clean as a whistle, and I would agree this scheme works great on this body. looks like business-time

That is a beautiful build. Does the kit have the conventional quad set up as an option?

Beautiful build David! Ever since I saw this build the first time, I've wanted to try my hand on one of these. But, I still haven't been able to score one at a decent price.

David - I had a '68 Camaro that lasted many years and took me many miles. This looks exactly like it should. The engine compartment looks like mine did. I don't see a license plate, so I don't know what state it's supposed to be in, but that windshield inspection sticker even looks like one I had.

What a great build and thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate it.

Thanks Ted`s. Now that I look at the picture, I noticed the license plate is missing. I built this one years ago, so I can`t say for certain, but I usually print out a period correct PA license plate for these. The inspection sticker was a scan and print of either a `69 or `70 PA state inspection sticker from memory.

David,

Super nice build, so you truly are the Camaro expert. I see that I am missing a few things off of mine.

One of the nicest I have ever seen.

Thanks Kenny! I think anyone would mistake yours for one of mine, and vice versa. Your Camaro in the Completed section looks perfect!

Dear Hawk312,

I am not totally sure that you are aware, but will assume that you probably are. This forum is for scale models only, not for actual 1:1, real cars that have been restored to perfection.. Lol

What an amazing build !! I have this kit here on my shelf, but I can guarantee everyone in the world, that no matter how hard I try, it will never come out anywhere near as nice as yours is. Job well done, thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks Ken! They are actually just the kit molded in clamps painted silver.

Wow! Absolutely amazing paint work! Everything looks so real. What kit is this? The only 1:12 model I've ever seen for sale anywhere is the Shelby gt500 from revell... Well and the outrageously expensive ferraris and such that sell for 600 plus.. But they don't count in my book.

Thanks Anthony!

This is the Monogram/Revell kit last issued about 5-6 years ago (I think). Usually, there are a few posted on Ebay at any given time.

Wow.. What a cool lookin box.. I would leave untouched until I perfected my model building.. I'm more of a painter then a builder. Again, what a beautiful car.
