    Agreed,
    Not easy ,,,or cheap .  At one time they were a lot cheaper then the 2 door hardtop version. But prices have pretty much equaled  out between the 2 .
     
    Ive got a few of the hardtops, but no convertibles.  ( Been on my to get list for a while now )

    I'm not a Vette can in any way. But I've built one of  those streaker Vette kits many many years ago. Now  that it's reissued. I might have to try one again.  I've always thought the 63 to 67 versions were the best of the lot.

    If they made it exactly like that pictured shows, with everything included . I'll pay that for it

    Having used to own a 1986 Suzuki GSXR750 
    It was a blast to ride.....but these youngsters today have  knads of steel to ride at those speeds and conditions
     
  14. gtx6970 added a post in a topic best way to access accurate 68 RoadRunner Blue?   

    PS,
    B5 wasn't a color avail in 1968 .
    Thats a 1969 and 1970 color - coded EB5 , 1971 it became GB5 and is just a touch darker than previous years
     
    For 1968 Roadrunner the Blues were . EE1 , QQ1 and UU1.
     
    QQ1 is the closest to B5 but Q1  has a tad brighter brilliance to it.
     
    To answer the OP, the best bet is with the smaller companies making paints specifically for model car use.
    Scale Finishes is enamel.
    MCW is a lacquer

    Just my opinion But If I paid for 6 issues a year. And I assume that means all 6 within a 12 month span beginning from the start date of subscription,,,. I except said issues.
    I seem to remember reading a while back capitol was needed to continue, basically telling me money from new subscribers was going to pay for old back ordered  issues.
    Sorry, and I mean no ill towards the owner, but that's a recipe for disaster from the word go.
