Corvette C5-R Compuware

Its been a while since I have posted anything constructive so this is a Revell Compuware C5-R. This build took about 3 months to build, and was built specifically for the HLJ 2013 Plamo Contest.

The build:
-Tamiya Mica Blue
-Rustoleum Lacquer Clear over decals
-Wet sanded with 1000,2000,4000,6000,12000
-Polished with Scratch X
-Model Factory Hiro fittings and hoses
-Various carbon fiber patterns used throughout
-Scratch built electric box
-Scratchbuilt brake ducts
-Model Car Garage photo etch kit
-Misc details throughout

I entered this build in the Intermediate category, and expected not to place whatsoever. To my surprise, I placed 3rd in the advanced category and won a 10,000 yen spending spree at HLJ. I felt the car was not all that great,and could have been better, but I ran out of time.

A kit from Tamiya, and I'm going to add SM Carbon Fiber Templates as well as Studio 27 Photo Etch kit.

 

Because there are so many etched parts and carbon fiber decals, I wanted to label and color code each one in the instructions. There are numerous etched parts that require multiple steps, and of course are not numerical in order. This has taken a couple hours but will greatly benefit when it's time to put pieces together.

Finally an affordable version!! The MFH version is nice but too expensive.

This is a Lindberg 1/16th scale kit. It went together super easy. This was my first try at weathering and i think it went pretty well.
