67 Camaro

I started with the Revell 67 SS kit because it has the stock grill & taillights. I used the engine from the 68 kit, a 302 angle plug head engine because it's the only kit that had a small block engine. I bought the 69 kit strictly for the cowl induction hood.
I think they all had rear spoilers but were all slightly different, I think I used the 68.
I didn't attempt to do the rear spoiler molded on as the ends are a bit small and I didn't think I could make it look right. I just sticky tacked it on.
I used a mix of MM flat black, craft paint & varnish. Sanded & painted it a couple times till I got a nice smooth finish, Then I applied a cupful of Pledge, let it dry for several days, then sanded w/1500. another cupful, sanded w/1800. then again using 2500. then just polished it w/Mothers wax.
I think it turned out pretty nice. The finish was kind of an experiment, so we'll see how it holds up.

Thanks again Norbert,
It did turn out nice if I do say so myself !! And the real thing was a sweet car for sure. Wish I never sold it. But that was 30 years ago !! 1986 Yikes
The garage is in there in my projects somewhere. I haven't got windows in the upper level yet. But, I got several Hobby Lobby gift cards for xmas, and I saved one till they had the craft boards on sale again a few weeks ago. I bought 9 big sheets, enough to build at least 3 more parking levels I'll put on the next shelf. And, I found a large sheet of clear plastic for windows too! Just gotta get busy and build more, I'm gonna be out of space soon. LOL
I'm almost caught up posting the completed projects. Only a couple more cars, a plane or 2 and a heli.
I wish I could figure a way to make some roll up doors for the garages, just to keep the dust out sometimes, but I guess that's asking too much. Would be cool though.
