    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.

  4. 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.

    Good looking color. The side view of the body looks nice and smooth.

    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.

    That's a pretty color and it seems right for the time period.

    Thanks Mike. Yea, I pick up the Les Paul every now and then.

  7. Got the engine ready, primer on the body, got some more work to do on it. And got the chassis painted in Tamiya Black. Going to try some Vallejo Model Color in Gunmetal Blue on the body.

    Looks good James. I assume you used some sort of decal setting solution?

    I used the Testors solution. The problem was they were too big for the car. Lots of overlap where it should not be.
