Here's my latest completed model. It's Revell's Corvette ZR1. Built moslty out of the box other than the wheels and tires. Those are Fujimi OZ's. Painted Tamiya ts-14 Black with Tamiya clear then polished. The interior is two-tone red and black. I chose to paint the brake calipers and engine details red instead of the blue that's used on the real car.

Anyway, thanks for looking.

Looks like you addressed and corrected the stance issue many of these I have seen built exhibit. Nice job!

This looks good! I'm surprised the edges of the hood clear glass don't look 3" thick.

Absolutely beautiful job on the finish. That has to be one of the nicest all black paint jobs I've seen on a model anywhere.

Cheers,
Albert

That is one beautiful Vette! Black paint looks terrific and your choice to use red accents instead of blue works great with the black. Great job!!!!!

That was going to be my comment....I bet you had some time invested in polishing that paint out! How did you polish it? Did you use the polishing cloths from 3200 thru 12,000?
