Outstanding work!!! As a huge LS fan, I am very impressed with the twin turbo Camaro. I have an LSx 427 powered 99 BMW E39 5 series station wagon :)

Great stuff Ralph, really inspiring ! ! 

Your scratch built parts are amazing, glad this thread came up !  I'm building the same big scale camaro kit and its always good to nick ideas from someone else ! !   Shame mine won't be anywhere near this level but they sure are fun to build !

I believe finding the right color to please the eye is rather difficult.... 

Green is not my first choice too... i start with met blue years ago and completely strip it down... then after take some times i decide yellowis green or moss green please my eyes...

This is the new powerplant for the touring car. Its a very accurate printed LS motor from Model Behavior.. its a little farther along now but i thought id share. My scratch built LS is being moved to another project. I felt this suited the car better...
