I really havn't taken the time to show any of my builds this year. I'm sorry for that and I took some time to take the photo's. I'm trying to better my photography and am learning the camera settings. The white ballance is off so these look somewhat pink.

This is the Revell 53 Corvette converted into a 55 using the engine from the Revell 56 Nomad and some parts from the Revell 59 Corvette. I used the photoetch from Model Car Garage to finish this one off. I'm real happy with this one.

Turned out real nice. I've always loved early Vettes, but you're right, gotta have a V-8 ! Pretty model.

It turned out great, I think I remember this one "on the workbench". Nice conversion, that engine looks at home in there. I think I like it better then the AMT offering, I may attempt one some day. Congratulations on a great model.

Great job!I don't think I have ever seen one built to such a high standard!The photoetched headlight stone-shields are a nice touch.

Really, really nice. And I agree that the PE headlight guards basically save the look of this kit.
