1/12 Corvette - Finished
Posted 18 May 2012 - 09:21 AM
Here's a few shots of my recently completed 67 Corvette.
Chrome on the rims was stripped and Alclad was used. Window trim is BMF.
The white stripe was painted after the decals fell apart in the water.

She was done box stock. The wipers are just painted with Alclad and a black wash or two. More pics coming.
That's the best I've ever seen kit wipers done. Tutor us in that.

A close up of the painted strip and detail painting on the chrome scripts.
And here's a close-up of the Alcladed rims. Valve stem was added. I might need a slight wash to pickup the details better.
And another shot with detailed scripts.

How exactly did you paint your hood? I'm a little bit uneasy about masking in case there is a leak under the mask, or when I remove the tape if it pulls off some of the green color. I guess I could use the kit decals and create a stencil out of them by tracing the black stripe by putting white paper over it and copying the outline with a pencil, then taking the tracing and putting over the top of the white decal paper I have and cutting multiple copies. The only tough part would be having both copies line up fully. I did this on the 1996 Grand Sport model I built and the white decal paper is actually pretty solid.
Anyway, the build looks great and makes my anticipation all the more intense. Great job!
