I'm going to guess real.
If it is a model Bill Geary had a hand on it! :D

I almost voted real, but I seen somthing that just looks to much like a model because of its size to the car.
I say model.

I thought two things on it "said" model, but more said 1/1 to me. It's a tough one! :P

Well, I did pretty good this time...the vote was 60-40, so I fooled a good percentage of you.

It's a MODEL.

Now for part 2 of this quiz...what scale do you think it is??? :)

:) Well Harry, ya gots me!I for sure tought it was a real one, but I guess it's not. I couldn't stand the suspense, so I hada ask one o' my "secret agents" to check it out for me and he was able to see thru your "smoke screen" and reveal the truth!But as far as the scale is concerned,it's gotta be bigger than 1/24th because of the detail involved(unless it was built by Bill Geary)And, I know there is NO 1/8th model of that particular vette, so I too go with Clay on this an say, 1/16th scale. :angry:

Is that a 1/12 scale model? The detail is superb and if you had included those interior and underhood shots in the beginning, you might have fooled more members, myself included!

The thing that convinced me it was a model were the windows and the front bumper, they just didn't look right.

Let us know who built that beauty.

1/6th scale.

Gotcha!

Yes, it's 1/6.

It's from Highway 61, and it's a DIECAST! (Yes, diecasts ARE models!!!)

It's 28 inches long and weighs about 35 pounds!

This is the first 1/6 scale model from that company, maybe more to come? The price: $800! :angry:

Yep! I wanted so bad to say where the model came from, but didn't want to spoil things!

The model is made by Highway 61.............I got to see this model up close and personal when I took a trip to our local car musuem here in Hershey, PA. The museum had a gift shop, and there it was sitting out in the open for all to see.

It is VERY impressive in person! :o The amount of detail is staggering----and so is the price..............a wallet strangling $800!!!!! :blink: :lol:

Interestingly enough, for it's size the model has no hardtop and no folding soft top. My 1:12 scale Danbury Mint '56 has both those features and it didn't cost 800 bucks!

Another feature they missed is the chrome trim that goes around the perimeter of the roll up windows. In all fairness though the '57 that I built doesn't have them either, but then mine's only 1:24. :angry:

Edit: If you check right here you can see a full review with a ton more pics!

Also read the buyer's reviews.............of the few that commented, they had some not so favorable things to say about it. :)

The only giveaway I saw to know it was a model was the windows. Having them been fully down I wouldn't be able to tell. The antenna looked funny but it was not enough to be sure.
