hello everyone, thought maybe some of you may like to see the newly released amt sock it to me vette built....and built quickly. two weeks made this a fast but fun project. also included in the photos are pics of the katch the kat metallic orange 1 in 12 kits s.e. version i was lucky enough to score when i bought 3 of these kits. thought maybe some folks may enjoy seeing one, if they have not grabbed one yet. any comments or questions are certainly welcome. thanks for looking. a.c. the ace.

I also have the katch the kat kit. I've been contemplating how to build it as to show off the sparkle orange plastic, but not let it be see-thru still. I really like the orange, but I have a feeling its going to be hard to pull off and look good.

Nice job on a pretty primitive kit.

 

I picked up one of these at a clearance sale and was less than impressed with the poor scaling of the nose details, but then again, it's exactly the same as it was when first released 100 years ago. I've got some non-blobular gluebomb C1 chassis, and my build of this will most likely be a modified sports gas-class car as well, but with a flip nose with molded-in details.

 

Yours looks great though.

That old AMT '62 Vette is a truly wretched kit due mainly to the severely undersized headlights (and I've earned the right to say that, having wrestled one into submission just a couple years ago). That said, I was severely tempted to buy one of them in the orange flake just 'cause it's so cool. I'm glad YOU did--you did a really nice job with the thing, and I'll bet you even had a certain amount of fun along the way. Well done and model on!

New Revell kit is beautiful, BTW.   Funny how you don't hear much about the ones they do nice, just the ones they eff-up....

 

Any chance you'd be willing to part with one of the decal sheets from yours?
