    Neat trick JC! Next time I'm in the hardware store I give the O rings the once over. Nice work on the OC Vette.

    Purists will note the incorrect orange engine block. I happen to think it adds color...so there Seriously though I knew it should have been aluminum but wasn't thinking.
    My bad.
    Note the front end sits lower than the kit does in stock form. I added .040 to the length of the steering knuckles in effect lowering the ride height. The brake disks are Detail Master while the calipers are scratch built from sheet Evergreen.
    Fog Lamps are scratch built from Evergreen sheet stock.
    Next more body shots......

    Today some engine and chassis progress! This is an overall view of the chassis.

    Here we are looking at the scratch built oil cooler that sits in front of he radiator. I believe the mesh used is Detail Master P.E. as are the fittings. The fittings are painted with Tamiya colors.

    Nice job, especially given the nature of the Heller product of that era. I have one and the engine cover is badly warped. How was your kit for warpage?

    Fuel Cell details.

    The fuel cell area was carved out of the rear chassis area. The cell itself made from Evergreen sheet. The frame from square and rectangular Evergreen bar stock.

    A direct side view showing the rear wheel.

    Great paint very Corvette. You might want to look at the Model Car Garage photo etch set for your build. It has great moldings and scripts. I am working on a Vette of the same vintage right now so your post is timely for me to follow with great interest. Keep up the good work.

    SpeedFreak,
    I used wine bottle top lead foil, an old figure builders trick. It cuts nice and holds its shape. Very tough to find these days. Fortunately I have a good supply of wine bottle tops!
     
    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    The interior tub is done. Roll bar is modified into a cage using the Owens kit piece and Evergreen rod. Harness buckles are Detail Master. The spare is from the parts box. Switches and lights on console are scratch built using Grandt Line rod. Gauges are decals with Micro Clear.
