With some cars and certain model year’s I am a purist at heart. I’m not too shy, when doing reviews, to tell you which diecast replications I truly love and why. Well, this one is a personal treasure. DM has done a diverse array of Chevy’s Camaro in one-twenty-fourth scale, albeit just the ’67 and ’69 model years to date. We have convertibles, coupes, RS/SS, Z/28’s, COPO’s, Yenko’s, an SS350 and a Pro Street drag machine, my personal favorite of them all. I’m not a big fan of coupes with vinyl roofs. Certain colors are not as enticing on some models as on others. But this Dusk Blue coupe, sans vinyl, with white stripes in Z/28 trim, lettered Firestones sporting a contrasting black and white interior, sends me straight to “production stock” Z/28 nirvana. Add the Rally Sport option and I get positively giddy.

I’ll tell you first off, there are no current tech hinges on doors and hood. Big points deductions? Oh no, bubba. What there is, is a refinement and perfection of the craft that aligns every body crease, door, trunk and hood gap as if by laser magic. The paint has never been more fluid and rich, the attention to detail never better and the overall conformity of body, stance and styling of the sixty-nine Z/28 is astounding. DM has added tire branding, this time in Firestone white lettering, the perfect period wheels, Rally wheels with chrome trim rings and has now sealed their metal foiled insignias and emblems. The seats provide a new innovation in texture and feel and the chassis and engine bay are better than ever.

Operational features include a folding license tag to reveal the gas filler cap; the detail to the inner side of the plate holder is super realistic, and a scaled metal extending antenna. The underside of the muscle car shows off great metal lines and accent pieces while the trunk and interior look like the one-to-one in perfect miniature. The under-hood view may leave you speechless. The use of various materials to cause the illusion of looking at the genuine article is masterfully carried out. The big twin chromed air filter is surrounded by a rubber hood seal to take good use of the cowl-induction hood. Metal lines on the master cylinder, wiring and hoses are all in perfect place and tiny engine and radiator stickers help sell the miniature fantasy.

It all adds up, the color choice, build craftsmanship, attention to accurate detail and the subject choice render a huge, “BRAVO DANBURY” from me. This one goes to the head of the DM Camaro lineup in my collection.
