Chevy '69 Camaro Revell-Monogram 1/12 scale

Kit / Model  

Camaro 1969



Item Code  





Ya son muy pocos los kits que se pueden conseguir a la venta de modelos de automóviles en escala 1/12. Con un poco de suerte se pueden encontrar algunos a la venta en internet de fabricantes como Doyusha, Fujimi, Tamiya, Monogram, Revell, entre otros...
A mi modo de ver, la escala 1/12 tiene algunas desventajas con respecto a la escala 1/24, en primer lugar las enormes proporciones de estos modelos y el lugar que ocupan a la hora de exponerlos, bien sea en casa o en exposiciones. Al ser más grandes hay que ser sumamente cuidadoso con los detalles, ya que estos se harán más visibles.
La posibilidad de conseguir en el mercado accesorios para modelos en 1/24 es bastante amplia, desde calcas, hasta piezas para mejorar los detalles del motor e interiores, llantas especiales, ruedas, etc. Pero no ocurre igual para los modelos a escala 1/12 o superiores. Salvo por algunos fabricantes que nos ofrecen piezas y calcas para detallar algunos modelos de Fórmula Uno, es muy poco lo que podemos conseguir en el mercado.

Nowadays, There are not a great many 1/12 car model kits available. Perhaps, you may find some, from Doyusha, Fujimi, Tamiya, Monogram, Revell, around the Internet. From my point of view, the 1/12 scale has some disadvantages with respect to the 1/24 scale, these models size and the apace they take at the time of being displayed either in your house or at exhibitions; besides one must be extremely careful with the details, since they will be more visible.
There's a great chance of getting accessories such as decals, special tires, wheels or parts to improve the interiors or engine details for the 1/24 kits on sale. This doesn’t happen when speaking about the 1/12 kits or bigger ones, except for some manufacturers that offer parts or decals to detail certain Formula I kits.
