    I was really hoping for that FIA Cobra - one of my favorite cars ever, as well as one that's never been kitted.

    Finished. "Under Glass" here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/116410-corvette-grand-sport-sebring-1964/

    Corvette Grand Sport - Sebring 1964
    It's done! The Accurate Miniatures kit of the Mecom Racing chassis #003, driven at Sebring by A.J. Foyt and John Cannon to 23rd place.
    Mostly out of the box, with a few aftermarket items and some extra detailing. There's detailed build thread here that should answer most questions, but ask away otherwise. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/111989-1963-corvette-grand-sport-update-81616/
    It ain't perfect, and there are a small list of things I would have done a little differently, but I'm mostly pleased with it.




    Thanks for looking - comments & questions welcome.

    That sounds about right - it's obviously of the utmost importance to have the engine positioned correctly for the model to look correct.

    Coming along very nicely, Phil!

    Wow, some seriously good work going on here!

    Thanks, Bruce. I used decals - rather than white paint - on the louvers. Still not sure if that was the right way to go or not - it had its advantages & disadvantages.
    Cool idea going with the Gulf colors on the Corvette!
    Meanwhile, I got the body, interior and chassis together over the weekend and have started adding the final touches. Should be done sometime this week!

    That's cool, but I've always been partial to this one:

    Whatever it is, I reserved one at my LHS this morning. I want to get my hands on it as soon as it hits the shelves. Their distributor says late November.

    All good points, guys! I had noticed all the separate parts, but missed the small fit issue at the hood corner.
    It's looking very good indeed!

    I'm guessing it's a curbside. Maybe that's why the hood fits so well! Also, for the purists - it's missing the "Comet" script from the left front edge of the hood.
    Beautiful though!

    I'm almost ready to put it all together:


    More decals and various small bits will be added after I get the body, interior and chassis mated.
  13. RancheroSteve added a post in a topic Photo-Etch Racing Harness - Lever Type   

    I believe Replicas & Miniatures sells the lever style harness - part# RM-19B. It's similar to the Detail Master DM-2260.

    You know I'll be following this one! I may have to start my own before too much longer.
  15. RancheroSteve added a post in a topic 1/24-5 Can-Am Kits, Plastic & Resin. Let's make a "Catalog"   

    Here's the box top from the Lola of that series. There was also a Chaparral 2 in the series. I guess if we want to get technical, these were really USRRC cars at the time the models were released, but the Lola T-70 and the McLaren-Elva did race in the Can-Am series.

    By the way, this site is a great resource for historical info on the Can-Am and other road racing series - entry lists and photos of most of the cars that raced:
