70.5 Camaro

Started this at the end of July... Just wanted to do a quick build. Nothing wired. Cragars on parts box whitewalls. Testors Bronze paint... Didnt want too much shine. Was aiming towards a car that a high school kid owned and spent most of his time working on in auto shop class....

Nice job ! I like the white walls. Hard to tell from the angle of the pictures ,but it looks like it sits real nice.

Great looking Camaro ! I also like the Cragars and the whitewalls .

Only thing I might have done different is a full width bumper instead of the split bumper , but that's not an easy change . You did good , nice job !

I think I like these 2nd generations better than the first. Nice job. I don't think many high school kids would have whitewalls however!

Can't go wrong with white walls and Cragars on '70s cars. Looks cool.

With the color and wheels, this thing looks like it peeled rubber right out of the 70s. It is always nice to see one built like this. Leaving off the spoilers was the right thing to do here as well. You sure have captured the spirit of this car in it's day.

Just the way I like 'em, both the model and the 1:1...Great job!

As for the white walls, back in those days when some of us were teenagers, ya took whatever you could find, especially if the tires were a freebee or hand-me-down from Dad's car....
