This turned out to be a far more elaborate and ambitious build that it first appeared to be. And yes, I do think it's actually pretty classy! :lol: The red & white color scheme looks real sharp and the surprising amount of detail really comes across well. :lol: ;)

finis...
got'er all done, had to take care of a few fit issues and dings along the way
*engine parts were too high for hood to close - necessitated removing and grinding away stuff, dinged the fender in the process
*hinges and guide pins for the canopy are a little on the fragile side and bind when trying to close
but overall it was fun and didn't come out to bad...
just gonna post pixurz of the finished car in this thread - won't be posting it "Under Glass"

That is SO wrong on so many levels!!! But it is SO RIGHT! Too!

Great imagination; great imagineering; great execution! The future is yours!

What a terrific marriage of Corvette and Beatnik Bandit! What a collaboration of Shinoda and Roth! Pure Ten out of Ten!

That came out real nice! I agree, great imagineering, and, as I said before, the color combo really makes it. :lol: B) But one thing, I can't form an opinion about the stance of this "vehicle"!? :D

Okay, the reason why I can't speak is that I am currently doing the Curley Dance on the floor.

Wow, what a beautiful job. Concept = Excellent

Execution = Excellent.

You've done a great job, and this model pushes the envelop forward.

Thank you for this great build.
