G' Day Folks,

A stalled project, but finished now :)

AMT Kit (old issue kit)

Tamiya Racing white and a few bits and pieces thrown in from my spares box.

Cheers

Ray

You did it justice.  Not an easy kit to build and make it look good.  Your little details make it pop from  the engine to the logos.  Nice job Ray. Cheers to you.

Outstanding 'Vette , Ray :D !

I absolutely LOVE  that dolled-up Blue Flame Six and its side draft carburettures ( <_< ) ! Just gorgeous work !

And your '64 'Imp is outstanding as well !

Keep up the beautiful work , Ray :)

Hey Michael, is yours the latest release? Is it new tooling or a re-issue?

My kit is from 2001, second hand. It's actually '55, but I think it's basically similar. The parts were warped and there was flash EVERYWHERE... :)

This is a very appropriate build....  given what they were (at the time) I have to wonder how many 53-54's had this done to them... (12 volt battery included!!) and some 55's as well...

 

A well done build that is VERY believable...

 

Regards

Bill (Duntov)
