Hello!

I know, I'm 2 years behind....
While I was away, Revell released the ZR1. ( I had started converting a Z06 before, the best way to ensure a kit release :) )
Of course I HAVE to get it. The forum's search feature has not been helpful. How's the kit? How are the tires? Tires are undersized in the Z06 and I wonder how they are in the ZR1. If not up to specs, any suggestions?
Also, which SMS carbon fiber decals to get?
Geez, I have a lot to catch up!

Thanks,

I have the same questions. I have not even unwrapped the ZR1 kit yet, the Z06 iks still in the box, and the C6 is mocked up. As much as I love the C6 Corvette, I do not know what color combination to do them in.

Thanks,

i used Casted BBS wheels and cut the sidewalls out the tire. revell seriously dropped the ball on the wheels for this kit the wheels are basically the same size as the Z06.

Is this the one with the window in the hood for the supercharger? If so, I might have the instruction sheet.

If you go to Revell's site, you can find instrcutions for most kits. The ZR-1 instructions are here:
