  1. I have a project in progress that is in need of the wheels and tires from the Copperhead concept kit.
  2. Thank you Christian, the fender flares are from the Monogram Corvette Grand Sport kit.
  3. Thank you all for the comments and support. I really do appreciate it. 🙂👍
  4. This was another stalled (5 years stalled!!) project I pulled out and finished. Paint is all lacquer: Blue base is Deja blue with True blue pearl. White stripes are masked and painted. Wheels are c6 Corvette with large Brembos behind them, tires are from the Foose c7. Photoetch emblem, rear sidemarkers, and door handles. Oh yeah, I made the front marker lights out of clear grand sport markers sanded and reshaped because the Callaway markers are tinted. 🙄 When taking on something this complicated there are bound to be fitment issues which was an understatement.....the chassis had to be stretched 3/4 of inch to accommodate the new wheelbase, which meant new exhaust, driveline, new interior which is c4 Grand Sport.....yada yada yada. Lol on to the pics
  5. Thank you, when I came up with this project it was between a Corvette and a Viper roof. The GTS roof fit so well it became a no brainer. It is quite possible it was the WIP of this. This has been on the side for quite a long time, because of a work injury I have had a lot of time to finish stalled projects.
  6. Thank you Gramps! Thanks! Yeah it kind of does, never thought of that.
  7. Thank you Peter, would really like seeing your build of it. Thought about a c6 roof initially but the Viper roof fit so well I couldn't say no.
  8. Looks good to me in pictures. I wouldnt sweat it too much. Quick tip for convincing wood grain: paint the pieces a glossy tan or yellow cream color, then use a brown Sharpie to simulate wood grain. It takes a little practice but the Sharpie will blend and create lights and darks.
  9. Thanks Mike. Its paint. I punched out circles out of vinyl, then punched each circle again to make rings. It was a night of making rings lol
  10. This was a long term build. I grafted a Viper GTS roof onto the Series 1 body. Then designed and fitted a roll cage, driver, and data systems and wiring. The wing is from a Viper GTSR diecast but it is plastic. The front splitter is Evergreen with scale Motorsport carbon fiber. Rear splitter is Evergreen also. Wheels are from a Tamiya Taisin Starcard kit. Feels good to finally have it done.
  11. Awesome, no it doesn't have to be this version. What are you looking for in trade? You can PM me.

  13. Desperately searching for a Revell 93 Cobra unstarted and or sealed. Have a lot to trade but not a lot of old car kits. PM if you have one and hopefully we can work it out. Thanks
  14. Absolutely Scott, wouldn't hesitate. Very happy with my trade and the communication throughout. A+ trader
  15. Nice clean build! I recently finished this exact kit myself! Used Fujimi wheels/tires, painted scripts.
  16. Thank you for the reply and acknowledgement Cameron. I admit I did not understand what was going on ( it was the "not knowing" more than anything ) I am sorry to hear that things are a little rough on your end at this time. I have made trades with you in the past and things have always gone smoothly....I eventually came around to thought something must be going on. I look forward to receiving the kit....going to build a SV edition Modena Spyder. Thanks Cameron Ken
