Looking for Drawings of 1969 Z-28 Camero RS
« on: May 16, 2011, 06:57:22 PM »
I was wondering if you could tell me if it's possible to get copies of detailed engineered drawings, or CAD drawings of a particular vehicle I am interested in modeling. I model in 3D using Google SketchUp and also do static models in 1/8 scale, and I'm interested in doing a model of the car I drove in high school. It's a 1969 Z-28 Camero RS. I sure would appreciate knowing if anything is available for my project, or if there would be any issues of me doing a model like this. Thank so much for your time.

Well, the first thing before we proceed is to get you to spell Camero correctly. That's  "Cam A ro.... There is no "E" in Camaro. If you actually owned one of these cars, then you should be able to spell it, right?  ..ha ha... I can't help ya with the drawings. But maybe someone will chime in.....Good Luck........Danny

 I don't know of any engineering drawings available. Is there a way of taking detailed photos and converting them to drawings? If so, I am sure members here (including me) can provide detailed photos.

Thanks for the correction Danny, or is that Denny? LOL!

I would imagine that could be done. I have a 1/25 scale model ordered, and an assembly manual ordered in hopes that I can get the information off of those two sources. If I come up with something good, I'll make sure to post it here.

Thanks for your responses.

Thought you guys would like to see the quality of modeling that's going into our 1/8 scale project.

We have used this example to pitch to GM what we would use their supplied drawings for.

Enjoy.

Yep got one of those, and the manual on CD, but the drawings are useless, but the information is a good reference. I really need more detailed drawings and dimensions.

I might be going out on a limb here but perhaps an engineer?

Hi Jax,

I love models, here is a link to some that I have done, http://z28models.tripod.com/   These are 1/25 scale Revell, I have found that this is an excellent kit, does need a little bit of tweeking because they molded in the wheel opening trim, there is also a 1/12 scale by Revell that is also excellent, the body's for both are very faithful.  Are you making a kit, that would be outstanding given the detail in you pictures, just make sure you get the body RIGHT or it will look funny if you know what I mean, there are plenty of bad diecasts. The Highway 61 diecast is very good though.  MCW is a great place to get matching factory paint and yes I painted the stripes.

Regards,
Jerry K.

Nice work Jerry.

A kit is something I'm hoping will come out of this, but right now I need some good CAD or Tech drawings so I can model the parts. Trying to stay focused on that, and we will see how it develops.

Does anyone own any of the books done by Jason Scott? I was wondering if the drawings were any cleaner then the assembly manual. Or if his books are in electronic format.

Thanks for all the great comments guys.
