Finally! 70 1/2 Camaro finished!
Posted by Retro Joe on Friday, December 29, 2017 8:00 PM

According to the date on my first photos of this model in primer, I started it on October 14, 2014. This one got put on the back burner several times, while I built other models that I was more interested in. Finished just in time to call it a 2017 build. Here are the specs: Paint is Dark Cherry Pearl lacquer, interior is Semi-Gloss Black lacquer with Molotow pen chrome details. Exterior window trim is Bare Metal Foil. Wheels are from parts bin, and the nice Cragar S/S wheels from the kit will go on a future build.

Looks really good, Joe! I just built this kit not too long ago and thought it went together nicely. That dark cherry is really dark! Nice work! CoolThumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Thanks guys! I was following your build, Jr, and you made a lot more mods than I did. Great work, as always! If I use this color again, I will try it over a silver base. That would probably look totally different.
