Ok peeps here is my subject for the muscle car gb. Its the Revell 1/25 Camaro z28 rs. Its a simple enough kit , no opening doors or boot , just the bonnet . Im not a big fan of the RS triple headlights so i was pleasantly surprised to see that the standard grille and headlights are included on the sprues so im going to use those. I might not put the boot spoiler on either . Heres a pic of the box top and a teaser of the colour im going to do it, cheers tony

I will be watching this one. I do hope that you write a good how to on painting with the nail varnish. I tried it once and failed misserably. It would be nice to see how it is done.

Have you been hanging around the discount make up counter again ? But do tell, is that the colour, or actually the paint you are going to use ?

You should know our Tony by now Col! If he's not rummaging about in the bargain boxes at the shows, he's mooching about the cosmetics counter in a pound shop somewhere!:D

Ive got the Revell 69 Camaro Snaptite kit, and it will be interesting to see the difference between that and this one.
