    James, the Revell 69 Chevelle is an excellent kit. I have built it and the 68 Chevelle twice now and still have one of each in the closet. The 68 below in light blue metallic took a 2nd place in Factory Stock at a contest and the 69 in Daytona Yellow took a 1st place in Factory Stock in another. I'm thinking of buying one more of each before they are gone from the shelves! 😎

    Those are some good looking Chevelles.

    James if you end up painting it the fathom green I recommend laying down a base coat of semi gloss black.

    I will probably just go with Tamiya light green.

    Very nice Camaro!

    Thank you.

  4. Finished up the 69 Camaro, now starting a 69 Chevelle. This is the Revell SS396 kit. Going over the parts it looks really nice, should build out good if I don't mess it up. Got the body primed, thinking I may go with a green. It will be a stock oob build. Maybe I'll add a few details under the hood.

    nice work 
    looks like i will have to get one of these kits 

    Thanks Michelle. Ollie's had these for 12.99, and it was 33% off that when I got it during the holidays.

  6. Same as Mike. I really like the Tamiya Acrylics, they go on great using Mr Hobby Leveling Thinner. The only primer I use now is the Mr. Surfacer 1500. I have used the Createx also, it works well but as Mike said you must use their thinner. I use Vallejo model color for brushing details, and just lately tried air brushing with it and it did very good, may start using it more.

  7. This is the Monogram Classic Cruiser kit I picked up from Ollie's. It's a nice kit, went together well except the header pipes/side pipes were kinda a pain. The engine is a 302 with dual turbos. The battery location seems wrong for this car. There was no rad hose in the kit, had to make my own. I left off the horn, it just looked too big and out of place under the hood. The body paint is Tamiya Metallic Grey, the interior is Rustoleum Nutmeg Brown. All comments welcome, thanks for looking.

  8. 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.

    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.
