    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.
    Photo one a frontal view
    Photo two is console detail
    Photo three is gauge detail
    Photo Four is a overall top view

    The Owens Corning Vette was chosne for the flares and roll cage.
    First photo shows the body with the front and rear flares. The rears from the previously mentioned Owens Corning Vette kit and the fronts were formed from Evergreen Rod filled with Squadron putty.
    The second photo shows the headlamp buckets roughed in.
    The third photo presents the gas filer hole and more rear flare detail

    NART Corvette 17 years in the making!
     
    I decided to build a collection of sports racing cars. Specifically those that competed in endurance events. Le Mans being the big daddy was the event to focus on, especially because of the wide variety of cars, characters, and stories.
    This decision to build this collection came in 1997 and was inspired by at story appearing in an issue of VETTE magazine.
    That story was off a Corvette that raced at Le Mans wearing Ferrari livery! Anyone who knows of Enzo Ferrari’s single mindedness will understand that this is great story and should research it.
    The famous N.A.R.T. Vette was to be the first build in my new themed collection.
    However it did not turn out be the first (the first car is featured in the diorama section) due to the time and effort it took to round up the appropriate kits and decals. (pre-Revellogram Greenwood Vette)
    My 17 year odyssey follows:
    The inspiration, the story from Vette magazine and the kits used to build the model.

    Amazing. I for one would like to know the make and model of the output printer as well as the output medium.

    What neat fun build! You would think with the resurgence of 1/32 slots, we would see more 32 model kits presented. A scale that I think is better for  collector/builders than 1/43..... if not for the lack of subject matter.
