I started sanding to my Corvette. It looks good when all the paint is sanded off... Maybe I get tomorrow time to finish it up and start building the body too. I painted the engine with red already. More coming soon, I think.

But, this body is AMT's "Eckler Corvette", and it has been few months in MR Muscle, but the paint didn't leave from the body... Well, I bought Fairy Power Spray, which is very good stuff, I've heard. After about one month, nothing happened! Well, only choice was to take sandpaper to hand and remove paint like that... Paint left pretty well from passenger's side, but the driver's side was very very hard, now the body looks better, and I'm going to take sheet styrene and start doing little modifications to it.
Here is the body, when I got it.
After few months in MR Muscle and one month in Fairy Power Spray:
I have put some putty to the dashboard:

I also glued these parts to the body, they are clear, but I will paint them with the same color as the body.

PLEASE tell me if that thing is not good or if it is very good idea, then I can think about, what I am doing.

I have to finish the decals, put clear on it, and do a few little odds and ends.

Thanks Niko. This is going to be a fun one to build, the research on it is sketchy at best and reference material scarce...
Rob, you are in with that Stars & Stripes Corvette. And yes, I'm going to move that december 31 2011 for a last day to get in and then there is no deadline so people can join in on the last day and then it's time for build it as long as it takes.

Few links, which I found:
Picture It's not 100% same car, but I think, that engine might be pretty close to that one, you have there... That picture is from This page, there are lots of pictures from Corvettes.
Don't know, maybe you have found these before, but I found these now.

The LS1 427ci. is a dream to build, all the parts are really crisp and clean. The fuel pump, oil filter and starter are all separate pieces and really add some super detail to this motor.
Here's where I am at so far...

Also that Corvette is amazing. I like that stance, as you said the front is little high, but I hope that you can manage with it. Like these Revell kits, they are always well detailed. Oh, almost, I have seen some old releases and they aren't so good but anyways...

well i spent a couple of hours scrapping and digging the molded in exhaust on the chassis. i really dont like that aoshima did this.
and i started shapping the front fenders like the ones on box art. the ones in the kit are based of the new design thats being used.
