    Nice work! It looks as though you even drilled out the radio/heater details to install the gauges? 
    I know what you mean about finding reference photos. When I was building the L-88`s, it was a real struggle. The Barrett Jackson car wasn`t too bad with all the publicity it got, but the black ones were another story.

    Oh wow!! I can`t wait to see this! I will be watching for sure!

    I`ve been using rattle cans exclusively for over 20 years now and am getting decent results. I have no plans at this point to go to an airbrush.

    Excellent work on both! 
     
    Where did the wheels come from for the `vette?

    Thanks everyone!
     
    Harry, the subject we discussed a while back is still in progress. I haven`t given up. Hopefully for Christmas next year?
     
    Thanks! The first one is an ultra rare L-88. Since they didn`t have radios (did any of you guys notice the modified dash?) there was no need for a shield.

    2015 for Hawk312, only 2 Corvettes.
    Well, the year started off ambitious for me at least, until life got in the way again. I have a very big project in the works I was hoping to share with you guys this year, but I guess it will have to be next year.
    So the L-88 car, which was meant to replicate the Barrent Jackson car, and another tri-power `67 Corvette are my only completions this year. Both are 1/12 scale. These are the first two models on which I have used my own built and cast `67 style rallye wheels.

    I`ll be watching this thread. I agree with you on the proportions. Alot of weirdness with the kit engine. I was debating back-dating this kit to a `68 or `69 if I ever get time to build again.
    If you have need during your build, I have an assembled one of these if you want me to snap some pics from different angles.

    Yeah, I would love to see this, It seems this is overdue as they have already re-released the `57 since the last release of the Corvette kit, and I believe we have seen the Camaro twice in that time. I`m also waiting to see if we will ever see the `79 or `80 Trans am or the `78 or `81 Corvettes in 1/8 scale. We`ve seen the Iroc and a host of other 1/8 kits in recent years. I am still seeing the `79 kit go for over $300 every now and then. 
    I know we don`t want to see yet another Camaro, but I think a Revell version of the `70 Camaro is long overdue.

    Does it work on resin with consistent results?
  14. Hawk312 added a post in a topic If you could only choose ONE photo of any of your builds, wich would it be?   

     
    Very nice work in this thread. Lots of eye candy.
    Mine is always changing, but for now, It is the Barret Jackson L-88 car that I built from the 1/12 scale kit.
