Terry........you are right.......it is absolutely wrong.........it was built a few years back........that is when I really did not research very much.......I just used  parts from diffirent kits ........that looked like what I needed........believe me I have had ........allot of people point out my mistakes.......I`m not perfect but, I have really tried to research on my recent builds........I am thankful for the critics........It made me want to build more accurate.........but,like I said this build was built along time ago....... I just figured a few modelers would like to see "BeachCity" Corvette built.......  right after I built this a........a guy that works for Chip Foose  wanted to buy it for $500.00 0r trade for Foose die cast and a tour and meet Foose.........I guess I should have sold it?........but,now I`m stuck with a lemon .........maybe I should build it again? :)

 

John...don't you dare touch that model (smile).    Not only does it look terrific, it's a signpost along the way in your journey to becoming the terrific modeler you are today.   On my fotki site I have some models posted that I built as long as 47 years ago.  Lotsa mistakes in those!  But some of them are among the most popular (judged by page views and comments) on the whole site.  Not that I feel strongly about this or anything....  Best regards...TIM

John, I agree with Tim...leave it alone. We all have made mistakes...heaven knows I have made PLENTY of them.  Now that your skills both in building and researching are better, maybe one day you'll be inspired enough to build another more accurate one. If not...so be it!

 

And Tim...47 years ago??? Yikes!  Seriously though it's kinda cool that you still have pics of those early builds.

Terry....here is one....an Anglia Gasser completed in fall, 1966 with a Hemi from the Double Dragster, a front suspension from the AMT '55 Nomad Gasser version, and a one-piece liftoff front end.  Yes, that is a piece of the blue "Plexi" window material hanging down from its former location as the rear quarter window!  TIM DSC_0170-vi.jpg

Excellent build, I was wondering where you got that driver figure? While on the subject of driver figures does anybody make a driver figure that would fit in a 1/18 scale fuel altered?
