  1. Just buttoned up my second quarantine build. Revell 1960 Chevrolet Impala in factory colour Suntan Copper sporting the optional 348ci engine. This build brings fond memories from another time since my Dad owned a 1960 Belair in this colour and kept it for ten years. A good portion of my childhood was a part of this car.
  2. Thanks everyone. Here's a pic of my recently restored 1956 Corvette with my newly finished 1957 Corvette.
  3. Just wrapped up this original issue MPC Corvette initially released in 1965. Painted in MCW factory color Venetian Red.
  4. I dug out this 40+ year old build and decided to give it a restoration. Stripped all of the parts the with Super Clean degreaser and repainted everything in the correct colours as closely as possible. Ordered some factory colour paint from MCW for a factory finish. Rechromed all of the parts with the Molotow Chrome pen decanted and brushed on except for the windshield frame which was foiled. Turned out not too bad.
  5. Decided I wanted a 1954 Corvette for my collection so I used a 1953 kit to replicate it. Only visual difference between the 53 and the 54 after researching it was the higher output engine in 1954 and the addition of three new colors, Pennant Blue, Sportsman Red and Black. I decided to use MCW factory color Pennant Blue. All Pennant Blue 1954 Corvettes came with a tan interior and tan soft top. Using the valve cover from the 1953 Corvette I reworked it to look like the valve cover on the 1954. I had a set of Keith Marks 1954 valve cover decals that I used to finish off the look. In my opinion it is as close as you can get it considering a 1954 Corvette was never kitted.
  6. Thanks everyone. Took these pics in the sun today. Blue pops better in the sun.
  7. Well I'm calling this one done. MPC 1960 Chevrolet Corvette 283ci painted in MCW factory colour Horizon Blue. Once the sun comes back out I will get some better pics. The blue will really pop in the sun but for now these will have to do.
  8. Thanks. This hood came with the kit. The kit was excellent to build with no issues to report.
