  1. I got the body in primer, still have a little bit more body work to go, but over all I’m happy with the progress.
  2. I started mixing some paint and came up with a green I’m happy with, it’s not a spot on match by any means but I think it has a good shading quality. Hopefully it hides some of the goofs in my bodywork😁 my big lock stock it running out so I made a mold of a revell 427 and a few intake carb combos. So After about ten attempts I finally got a couple good castings that weren’t full of bubbles. I also trimmed the new chassis so it will fit the body and the wheels are centered. So with all the fitment issues addressed it’s time to put this one in high gear😎
  3. I think that’s what I’m gonna go with. I like that color alot
  4. Thanks for the warning, I don’t have any inner fenders from the original body so I’m going to have to modify some revell ones, and they don’t fit, luckily the interior tub fits relatively good.
  5. I might have to use that on an upcoming 66 project I’m working on
  6. That stance is mean. Is the paint metallic? It looks similar to the 66 corvette mosport green.
  7. That turned out great, really like the color. I’ve got a couple of these lined up, Does this issue have hollow or solid tires?
  8. I was digging through my parts bin the other day and realized I have most of the parts that I could possibly make a 1973 corvette. I know they pop up on eBay every once in a while but their usually in the $40-$80 range. But I have an AMT 1970 body and a MPC front bumper and optional hood with the hole in the middle, and a few good revell chassis’s. I’m pretty sure I want to make a 454 4speed coupe so as long as the parts all fit (which from test fitting all looks very promising) I should be able to make one fairly easy. I’m at a blank on color combo tho, I know I don’t want blue or yellow. Red is a possibility or hunter green. And being that I don’t have the correct hood I modified the hood with a hole in it by adding an L88 scoop. It’s kinda roughed in right now but it looks like the panels are going to line up good
  9. I got the GTS painted, I like the pearl look, but I kinda wish it was a bit lighter. But I think it will look better after polishing. Now I’m just hoping the headlights line up😁
  10. After test fitting the windows I realized there is no way to attach them without getting glue on the body, so I made some channels out of some .020 styrene. After that I reset the body on both cars and lined up the bumpers to the hood.
  11. I’m gonna try to revive this project, it’s been sitting for a little over a year, but I think I can manage to complete them now. I’m thinking I’ve decided to paint the rt/10 bright orange/brown. And the gts black pearl/Napa red interior.
  12. I think I’m going to build an engine on a stand and display it next to the car, in a cutaway form, or partially assembled. I wanted to leave one of the heads removable but there just isn’t a whole lot of room to pull it off and on, but I think an engine on a stand would look better, I’m thinking of doing the L88 and L71, the AMT 57 corvette street machine has a really nice set of big block heads with rockers molded in them.
  13. It’s createx pearl blue mixed with pearl silver and pearl white, mixing ratio was 45% blue 45% silver and 10% white, over VHT flat aluminum
  14. This started as a glue bomb I picked up off eBay a while back, it had some issues along the way, I had to replace a few parts from the parts bin. But all in all I’m very pleased with the results.
