Gents,

I'm an avid modeller who plans to make some models of Aussie racing legends.


I already have suitable kits for Moffat's Coke Mustang, John leffler's Mini's (couple of variations), Bill Brown's Grace Bros Carrera and Pete G's Mustang.

Also have planned Jim McKeown's Shell 911, maybe one or two other 911's of that period (Paul Hamilton? Leo G's GB 911? Pete's GB 911? Brian Foley's Chesterfield car) plus maybe a few others (Bruce Cary's GB Capri, Foley's Alfa GTaM, Bruce Taylor's Jag) if I can find kits at the right price (GTaM kits and Jag kits are stupid prices on e-bay!!!!!)


What I'm keen on getting is a kit to do Bob Jane's Camaro (I have the markings, numbers etc) - can anyone confirm what model/year this car was please.


Thanks in anticipation,

Cheers

That would be Allan Hamilton...

What about a decent S4 Holden? Preferably Brian Muir's in Scuderia Veloce colours.

A kit for which is available where, Ray? I think there will be a 1/18 die-cast S4 at some point from Classic Carlectable - they now have a very nice mould for it.

Scran, Jane's car was a ZR1 - 1969 I believe. The base kit should be available from someone like Revell or AMT in 1/24 scale.

In the Navy were you?

Revell's 1/25 1969 Yenko Camaro would probably be a good basis for the Jane car.

Look at the Bob Jane cars where are they now thread. Lots of pics of the Camaro and all the others Bob raced.

The car is a ZL1 which is a base model car with an all alloy 427ci engine

Lee - yes, I've seen the Jane's car thread - it's part of what inspired me to think about the project.

Just needed to work out which "model" of a model I need to try and get!!!!

Thaks to those who replied positively

Any model based on a ZL1 1969 Camaro or COPO Camaro would be fine. You could even use a 69 Z/28 model as long as it has the ZL2 cold air hood or as most refer to it , "cowl induction hood"

I have an all original numbers matching 69 COPO 427 Camaro . I am restoring it right now. All I can say is tire frier :)
