    Very true, thanks for the info.

    I just realized that I didn't post any pics of the interior complete. So here's a couple.

    Very cool to see this pic for reference, I was actually going off of another 1:12 scale corvette build I found on this forum. Thank you and the cables on my build will be simple to change.
     
    Again, thank you to everyone else for the comments and following along, will have the next update soon.

    Not much of an update on the vette. Just finished getting the body cleaned up of imperfections and mold lines, then shot 2 coats of duplicolor filler primer on it. Gonna paint the panel lines black to help with painting, then "block" it with 1000 grit so the black goes down smooth.

    It's nice to see one of these built up instead of used as a parts kit. Looks very nice and clean, well done!

    The bmf definitely took a while, and some patients too, but well worth it.
    Thanks for all the positive comments everyone, it means a lot.
    I'm currently cleaning up the body and getting it ready for primer. Nothing really picture worthy but will have something worth showing in a day or 2.

    As promised got the front inner fenders in, washer fluid tank, radiator assembly, and upper and lower hoses in. A little less exciting of a update than the 1st, but it's something haha.

    Thanks you guys, it's kind of weird doing a stock build but I'm liking it so far. I will get the inner fenders, radiator and hoses done probably tonight, then body work can start. I'll update with more pics.

    1967 Corvette 427 Coupe
    Here is my new project I have going right now. Revell 1967 Corvette Coupe. Doing it up as the base 390 hp 427 available in 67 instead of the usual big 435 hp version, black paint with a red hood stinger and red interior. Also doing a build I usually don't do, and that's completely stock, except adding as much obvious detail as possible. I have the engine done and detailed with plug wires in the correct routing, dipstick made and installed, temp sender and wire installed, breather and PCV hoses and fuel lines installed and in the correct routing, and exhaust manifolds with just a little orange overspray.

    I also have the complete interior done, in duplicolor universal red on all panels, dullcoat applied to the dash and door panels, the natural finish of the duplicolor left on the seats to give some contrast of the shined up leather/ vinyl look. I used bright red flocking for the carpet, BMF'd all chrome accents on the seats, door panels, dash, and console. Also installed the kit gauge decals and covered them in clear enamel paint to simulate lenses, painted the steering wheel in a rust color that was close enough to the rosewood wheel that's in the real car.



    More in a sec.
     
     
     
    And last for now is the chassis, all OOB with details. Painted in semi gloss black, the green colored sections are the floor boards, they are fiberglass that is gelcoated and covered in etching primer, so I used etch primer to simulate this. All components detail painted, brake lines are added where necessary( even though most cant be seen), e-brake cables were added, Wheels were detail painted, tires were sanded smooth, red line decals applied, and then dullcoated. The engine is now installed along with the entire chassis is done except the radiator and front wheel tubs. Thanks as always for looking and all comments and crits are welcome.

    Thanks again everyone, I'm really happy with the way this thing came together. Now I just need to get a display case for it so it doesn't get dusty sitting on the shelf haha. 
  11. Devilsnake98 added a post in a topic Another Revell 1990 Mustang LX   

    Thanks for all the kind words, the resin body does make a difference that's for sure. 
    Dennis- I bet that cobra motor swapped fox did run harder than in the cobra it actually came from. I had a 86 lx 5.0 notch that weighed 3150 with me in it, then later on I had a 98 cobra coupe that weighed 3600 with me in it, so that right there would produce some decent gains.

    Another Revell 1990 Mustang LX
    This is my 1990 mustang lx. Been a work in progress since this kit first came out, finally decided to push myself to get it out and finish it. I swapped in a 96-98 cobra dohc mod motor from the amt phantom Vicky kit, wheels from the revell 08 bullitt mustang, tires from my stash, brakes and seats from the revell 07 gt500, lowered stance, scratch built exhaust, plenty of other small details of course. I didnt go nuts but enough to make it better. This is the corrected resin body mastered by Mike Schnur and wonderfully resin casted by Greg Wann, these bodies are very very nice. Also i used a resin 2-3" cowl hood, paint is tamiya ts26 pure white with u-pol spray can clear cut and rubbed, tinted head and tail lights with Tamiya smoke. Thanks for looking, any comments/ criticism always welcome.
    Here is my previous wip thread, pics look a little caddy-wompus( on my phone at least).

    You will need to send a pm to member shucky, he is the one making the prochargers. I'm not sure if he's currently making them though, but definitely wouldn't hurt to ask him.
  14. Devilsnake98 added a post in a topic revell 67 corvette coupe decal sheet   

    Apparently the coupe and roadster kits have different decal sheets, the roadster sheet is missing all of the small detail decals such as gauges, emblems, air cleaner decals, etc...I can do without them but again, if anyone has a coupe only decal sheet they would part with, I'd like to make a deal on it. Thank you to fiatboy for the roadster sheet very much.
