This is my entry into the 2017 Speed Champions moc contest. http://www.moc-pages.com/group.php/26022
About this creation


This is by far my favourite car of all time, so when our next door neighbour got one as a retirement gift you can imagine there was a lot of jealousy going on.



The roof can come off to fit two mini figures. I know that the real speed champions set can only fit one and have built up seats, but I wanted to make this a car I could enjoy after the contest as well.



Side View: man I didn't even use the speed champions wheels. I am going to bomb the section of the contest based on making it like the sets.



Rear view: I am pretty happy with how this came out.



I really like this angle



Come here boy



Me and my dog go for a cruise.

Thanks for looking at my Camaro. I don't expect I will win the contest but I enjoyed building this car a lot. Let me know if you guys think that the buildings in the background deserve to get a post for themselves. They each have a full detailed interior and I also have a police car to post so stay tuned for that. As always crticism or advise are greatly appreciated.

Quoting marcel urbanija let's say it looks pretty decent. needs quite some work, although it's understandable that you might not have enough pieces. I see you used a Speed champions fender at the back. Why not use SPeed CHampions wheels aswell? It would look much better
I tried it with the smaller speed champions wheels but it just wasn't capturing the feel I was going for with this car. Most of my creations have inaccuracies that I acknowledge but I will keep because I think they look cool. I realize speed champions wheels would be better, but to me the bigger wheels are cooler if you see what I am trying to say. Thanks for the advice.

Quoting Builder Allan Cool! You have captured the shape of the front and overall look really well with this :-) I like the decal stripes too by the way.
Thanks Alan

Quoting Stephen Barnes Pretty good. I agree with what someone said about smoothing the roof, it looks a bit like someone just dumped a truckload of bricks on it. I have a couple to enter in that competition, thanks for reminding me.
Yeah. Version 2 is in the works and should be a lot smoother. What cars are you planning to submit in the contest?

I don't think any of my current things would work for the contest, and I'm pretty strapped for parts, but I might play around in LDD if I have time.

Quoting Scott Bertaut If making it "like the sets" means you had to use stickers for half the details, I think it is better off as it is. Stickers are fine for things like license plates or logos, but even the headlights are stickers half the time! Anyway you did a nice job on this, I like how the stripes even flow down to the bumper. As for putting in two Minifigures, if you use 1x2 jumper plates, you can actually fit them side by side in a 6 wide. Other then that the only suggestion I have is to try and make the roof 5 wide so that it tapers some, though it might not be possible without making it thicker. And if those buildings have interior, you should definitely post them! My main buildings have interior, but the ones I use as a backdrop when taking pictures of my cars are just 2D fronts.
Thanks for the kind words Scott. Your opinion means a lot to me. I will definitely get around to posting those buildings soon. You should join the speed champions finest. You still have until May 15 to submit a moc. I appreciate the idea with the jumper plates. I never thought to do that because I was worried the roof would be to low.

Quoting Gallardo of LU first: you built for the right reasons it appears, for yourself first. the contest is all in fun anyway, so do what makes you happiest! as for your Camaro, the shaping is great, the stance too. I would have added tail lights, and if possible a smoother roof piece to give it a sleeker look. I actually like the Non-SC wheels here, since the SC ones right now don't really have a 70s muscle feel to them. well done once again.
Thanks Gallardo. Yeah I agree with you about the whole sc wheels thing. They work well for sports cars but are lacking as far as muscle cars go. Thanks for commenting and good luck in the contest.

Quoting Jack Sparrow Great job on this! The front end is spot on, and I like how you did the sides as well. :-)
Thanks jack. Your Camaro was a big inspiration to me on this project.
