  1. I like the stance, old school 60's. Last 2 photos are with the decals and clear coat on. Trim is done with a molotow pen, but it doesn't show well on the metallic grey body. I would have done BMF, but I don't have any right now.

    That Metallic Grey looks really nice! 

    Looking forward to seeing the final result.

    Thank you.

    Is this going to be the final color? Will you add anything else?

    Yes, it will be the final color. I will do some trim work with a molotow pen. I did a 51 Chevy pickup in this color and thought it looked good. Decided to do a matching Camaro.

    Lookin good James and man, what a deal on the kit.  My small city Ollies seldom has any decent models when they have them.

    Thanks Mike. I have two Ollie's in my area, but both are about 35 miles away from me.

    I bought two of those at Ollie’s, mainly for the wheels and tires and some other pieces. I’ll be watching this to see what you do with it .

    The wheels do look good. I'm wondering what the engine is supposed to be. A duel turbo 350 maybe, IDK.

    Wow! That's a fantastic find! Scoring a '69 Camaro Z/28 model at 33% off during Ollie's holiday sale is quite the catch. What are you planning to do with it?

    Well, I think I will build it. I build mostly OOB, maybe put some plug wires on the engine.

  6. Tried a different paint for this one. Vallejo Model Color Gun Metal Blue. It thinned well with Mr. Hobby leveling thinner. Came out ok. This was the Coke kit, but I didn't use any of the decals. Nice kit. Mostly OOB build, I added plug wires and I didn't like the looks of the big chrome headlight bezels so I just kinda frenched them in and put some foil behind them. I lost the center post for the windshield, made another one, but forgot to install it before I took the photos.  All comments welcome and thanks for looking.

    I'm curious about the custom engine. It seems kinda small. Does anyone know what it's supposed to be? Small block MoPar?

    Niiiiiiiiiiice paint, James! Beautiful blue. Can't wait to see it in foil 😍

    Thanks Jim. I think it's supposed to be a 340 Mopar.
