Trans Am Race Series New Camaro Model

Thought this was a great flashback paint job on the new Camaro.


Remember the Pony Wars of the 1960s and 1970s? Imagine if the Trans Am series was reborn today. When I heard that AMT/Ertl was releasing a kit of the Camaro Concept Car, I was instantly inspired to build it into a modern-day Trans Am race car.

The most well-known Camaro from the 1960s Trans Am racing series is the 1969 Sunoco Roger Penske Z-28. I felt that special attention needed to be focused on painting and detailing of the model to really capture the "retro racer" theme.

Me Likey!!!!

Are you the person that actually did this model, or did you just find the article?

If you did it, I would like to see some hi-res "detail and scale" photos, please!

I built scale models for many years, but kinda gave up on them. I'm getting the itch to get back in the game.
