Based on the Holden-de­vel­oped GM Zeta plat­form, the fifth-gen­er­a­tion Ca­maro was a mod­ern take on an old clas­sic, if you will. De­signed by South Korean-born Sangyup Lee, it was re­leased af­ter sev­eral years on hia­tus, since the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion’s pro­duc­tion ended in 2002, and dras­ti­cally changed the dated body styling. The sharp roofline, wide hips, and ag­gres­sive square body­lines were rem­i­nis­cent of the first gen­er­a­tions, and quickly be­came a hit. An in­ter­est­ing note about the 2011 model year was that due to the 2011 Fukushima earth­quake, cer­tain pig­ment col­ors were not avail­able to make cer­tain colours. This AMT 1/25 scale model is moulded in three colours — gar­net red body, dark grey chas­sis, and black in­te­rior — plus clear and chrome, with a highly de­tailed in­te­rior and chas­sis. No paint or glue is re­quired.
