I’ve been working on this kit for a few months now. It started life as practice for painting. As such, it’s been stripped three times now. I started with Rustolium (shot it too thick and had runs), switched to Dupli Color Perfect Match (first time using it and I got terrible orange peel), stripped and shot it again, only to burn through on the polishing stage. This has become a great tool for learning the trade. Each screw up has been my own fault and I think I’ve learned from my mistakes (boy I hope so…😂). Originally I didn’t intend to do a wip on the Camaro, but I started thinking about what a journey it’s been already. Many of you have seen the stages of this in other threads I started. So now it’s time to get a little more serious about this kit and see what happens. Here’s where it stands today. I have a few versions of this kit, but I picked this one up most recently. They sell pretty cheap now and I couldn’t resist. Floor pan, suspension components, and wheels are painted. There is still some detail painting to do, but it’ll wait for now. I did some research, and it seems some of the Camaros had black floor pans and others had red oxide. Depends on where they were built. I’ll probably weather it very lightly, just to bring out some definition. Interior is painted and awaiting details. I actually just shot the engine Chevy engine orange just before I wrote this. It’s still wet here. And finally, the body…. Ah yes. I’ll keep the story short (too late!). I plan to build this as more of a stripped version, sort of basic Camaro. I’ll still be using the same engine, but just to be different from the crowd, this one won’t have stripes, and I’m leaving the rear spoiler off. The kit comes with indents for mounting the spoiler, that are filled here. Also, there is a sink mark on the roof above the dome light. That’s filled here too. Not difficult, but this step has had to be repeated every time I stripped the body and restarted. I think that’s it for now. Love it or hate it, let me know what you think. Thanks for following along!
