Mini-z body Camaro

'72 Camaro body for Mini-z MR02-03W wheelbase 98mm 0F/0R
Scale: 1/28
Weight 14.7 gr / 19.5 grams with the paint
link

This body has about the size and proportions of the Toyota Celica or the BMW M3. It is very light with a wall thickness of 0.75 mm but the nose and the back are rigid due to the boxy shapes. The one pictured is a narrow version but the online version was stretched for a wide chassis.

The decoration is stock/basic on purpose, I am sure some of you will make this a beast.










Feel free to post your own realisations here. This thread is also open to requests for improvement of this body.

That is beautiful, but some of the door lines are hard to see.

I'd like to see a video of the car in motion with the body on it.

You are right. They were modeled to scale but they need to be a bit exagerated.

I think the scale is right. They just need to be sharper.

I bet its when you preped and painted the body that the lines probably dissapeared sum. Maybe they need to be made wider or deeper next time?

Nice

But maybe Deep Dish Chrome Rims would make the product more of a Camero?

lol at everyone who's picking out everything that's wrong with it - just be glad to see a freaking Camaro Mini Z body!

I think it looks great, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.

Great!
I am looking forward to a all around +3 Camaro body...
Would it not be nice to be able to compete with the moslers in a PN GT-mod with one of these?

How about that?







+3 all around
It should not do bad with that weight (14.7 grams)

Looking good!
I do however wonder if there is enough room for suspension travel... Only a real test will tell I guess.
I was thinkig of doing the streching in the middle of the body to keep the fenders as is on the first(red) one.
this to gain suspension room in the body, or perhaps doing both is the ticket?
