    Hey guys, just want to share with you all the one custom that I came to a conclusion as the final Camaro 1974.

    This custom involves a new set of hands, cutting off a portion of the ugly eyes which made it look like Ultraman eyes if you don't cut it off.

    Please comment on it.

    Thanks for viewing.

    Nice.
    For some reason, he doesn't look as duck-footed...

    The new yellow makes it a really great bash, in a sea of great BB bashes.

    Lovin' the repainting...

    just wish there was a way to use 09's wing management on 74...

    to bring them higher & not make him so off-balance...


    *Currently working on improving 74s gauntlet armor & will begin implementation as soon as my new one comes in (that'll stay in the box)*

    Love the paint apps though...

    Sad that not many people put much love into this mold...

    He is still my favorite form in the movie (rust & dirt made him feel more real to me... but then that tart had to insult him...) and it kills me that even JS didn't work on him to make him better.

    A little putty, some paint (once again, LOVE your paint job on this one), the gem mod & he'd be fantastic...

    Yea hes one of my fav too. Worn out effects of this version makes it a real challenge to try to match up with the one in the movie.

    thanks for your compliments.

    Amazing paint work on this guy...the detail is out standing.

    The only thing that would have him more movie accurate is if you removed the passenger side mirror and re-sculpted the driver side mirror or replaced it with one from a model kit :)

    It's a really nice mold and as tired as some of the movie customs have been, it's nice that you went with the 74 as opposed to the concept.

    yea, i took note of that before, but I gave up on re-sculpting it because I am having difficulty looking for the materials in my country. Thanks for the compliment.
