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!


I agree with you. The DM 'vette, while "only" 1/12, is more detailed, for $300 less, including operating top, lights, etc. But at 1/6, this thing has to be impressive sitting on a shelf!

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.


That was another of my beefs with the model in person Izzy.

For it's size (and price!) the model's windows should go all the way down in the well with only a "hint" of them showing at the leading edge of the well like the 1:1.

I have this kit, so i'm going to say it's too realistic to be a 1/25 scale! :angry:

Once again, you're too late!

If the title has the word "Finished", then that quiz is over and the answer has already been given.

The only quiz that's currently "live" is #50. There's a new one every week, and only one at a time. I give the answer to the quiz on Friday and start the new one on the next Monday.
