Hi all,

This project started 1½ year ago. I decided to make my own version of a 63 Corvette P/M body. That took a while...and after that, I cast it in resin. I started with AMTs 63 Corvette and used a donor body for the front extension.

Here is some pics of the work so far.

When the plug/master was done I made a matched mold.

Posted Image

To get the resin in to the mold I used a syringe...very simple, but it works.

Here is the casting #-01. It turned out very good!

are you the same guy from the SA forums that did the '66 Nova pro modified?


Yes, that´s correct...I did the silver Nova P/M with U.S Airforce markings :lol:

WOW, amazing bodywork you've done. Thinking just, that it's started from original '63 Corvette. Then great castings, now you have lots of bodies, which means that we will see lots of '63 Corvette Pro Mods. :D Amazing job, can't wait to see more of your work.

Great job on the body Rickard. I'm sure that we'll be in for a treat once you really get into the build, especially after seeing what you did with the Nova.

I started the chassies build some weeks agoe, and this is how it looks today.

I also built the 3 speed Lenco trans. Here I started with a gearbox from the partbox...(think it´s from Monograms Penzoil P/S).

I remember seeing this one on the other forum... It's great to see you posting your work on here. This vette is off to a great start, and after seeing you build the Nova, I now this one will be top shelf also, the chassis looks awesome...

really nice build. I watched your posts on the nova and I'm still kept up nights trying to even come close to the level of craftsmanship with which you build.!
Pls let us know if your going to sell any of the vette castings.

Rickard... you have done some amazing work. That body looks great. Let me know if you ever get interested in selling them. I would pic one up for sure. I look forward to this build. I saw the build of your 66 Nova and that thing was beautiful. I am with others here saying you need to post some pics of it here. I will be following this build.
