    Did you ever get a copy of the Aurora instructions?  I do have the Revell/Monogram version of the same kit.  I can't vouch that the sprues and parts numbers are exact, but I could scan it for you if needed.

    No PROB!  I'm guessing you're in Arizona by your location  so clubs in Chicago area are less likely to be known.  There are 3 clubs in the Chicago area and one in Southern Wisconsin that interact a lot.  GTR is one.

    Grand Touring and Racing Auto Modelers, or GTR Auto Modelers (most often known simply as GTR), in northern Illinois.  The main focus is on racing cars and exotic street cars in 1/24th and 1/25th scale plastic models, but all types are accepted and encouraged.  The club was founded in 1999, and is part of IPMS/USA (Region 5). 
    The annual summer event was held yesterday.  It is NNL style (peoples choice) voting in 9 categories plus peoples choice overall, theme and a special memorial award.

    Only have the Brabus version (kit #7349) if that is of interest to you as an option.  No Tamiya 635CSI, only Fujimi(Testor) and hanging on to it.  Let me know.

    For clarity only, the Corvette is the Pre-Painted version which should be out in the next couple of months.  It is separate from the SnapFast kit recently introduced.

    They were being sold by vendors at the GTR NNL 2015 yesterday and were being snapped up.

    Revell Display at GTR NNL 15
    Got some photos of the Revell Display at the GTR NNL 2015, held on August 2.

    That would be the same kit as the Revell/Monogram 250 GTO which was picked up from Aurora.  It is a misshapen version of the 250 GTO, but did have considerable detail and opening everything.

    Sorry I can't help.  I do have that kit, but it is sealed.  And, I am NOT interested in parting it out.

    They're just showing up.  NOTE, this is the snap version, not the pre-painted

    For those speculating on what might be next, there are TWO carburetors on the parts tree even though this build calls for one.

    Working fine  A couple minor quirks.  Have used MS Edge, but switched back to IE because Norton extensions will not yet work with Edge.  My machine is a WIN 8.1 and I have yet to upgrade my 8.1 notebook or 7 Laptop.  Just want to wait a few days and see if anything freaky happens.

    Exactly.  But I have heard some misnamed cowl induction.  But I doubt Marcos would do.  There was no second gen from the factory cowl induction of which I am aware.  Some resin casters may have made one, but I can't recollect seeing any.

    Are you talking about the one from the Baldwin Motion version?

    Or Outlaw style or ?
