    Thanks Kevin! I'm working on the interior right now! Working on the rug, seats, dash, Door panels, steering wheel, kick panels,
    and all the other odds & ends. Nothing that's finished, so not worth posting any pics yet.
    Thanks for looking!

    Hey Bill, we don't mind in-progress shots here. I find it just as interesting to see HOW something is done as it is to see the finished product! Keep up the amazing work!

    Hello Bill

    I'm new on this forum and I'm a ...1969 Camaros adicted fans. I've jsut read that it is a ...1:8 scale model???? Is there is a tutorial on the body itself? Your engine bay is so detailed that only the primered wiper panel tells it is a model! Incedible!!!

    I'm looking forward to see some more picture!!!

    Hi, Bill- I've followed this build since I first saw it on the Model Cars website. This has got to be one of the most impressive models I've seen. That's not taking anything away from the rest of the fine model crafters on this site, just that I'm extra impressed with your build, particularly since it is the subject of one of my favorite cars of all time. OUTSTANDING work!!! Can't wait to see more.

    Hi Shaun,

    I'm still working on it! I've been reworking a few parts here and there, still working on the interior. Not too much left to do, have to make the parts fit correctly. Just plugging away. Thanks for your interest!

    It's been a while since I posted, I had a bad mold and destroyed the headliner and rug. The paint I used inhibited the rubber, the RTV Article: Amazing 1/8 Scale 1969 Camaro Build that came in contact
    with the painted surface didn't cure Article: Amazing 1/8 Scale 1969 Camaro Build , I tried getting the parts separated from the uncured RTV Article: Amazing 1/8 Scale 1969 Camaro Build but it came off in pieces. On the bright side I was able to
    glue the carpet back together, but I have to build the headliner one more time.
    Anyway I have some pics I can show, sorry about the bad photography.

    I found this site a while back and I have to say that in all my time visiting I am still blown away by the talent and realism that many of you can achieve. This is another example of that.
    Simply stunning work. I owned a 69 Camaro in my younger days so I am very excited about this build. Outstanding work!!
