Actually built this last Fall but with gold center Pegasus wheels. Didn't like how those looked and decided to color change to dark gray, and added some more offset to the rear wheels. Now I think it looks more like the C7 Z06. Painted with Model Master Aztec Gold with Tamiya Pearl Clear BEFORE with Gold wheels AFTER
Since the snap-tite kit was delayed by about 2 months, I decided not to wait for the "in theory" Sept release of the full(er) detailed kit. I started to paint it yellow but had some problems so I sanded it down and prepped it with Tamiya Silver leaf. Then I shot Tamiya Mica Silver as a base coat for the Tamiya TS-50 blue final color. Model has a few coats of Tamiya TS-13 clear over it. I got some chipping around the headlight area when I put the covers on, I am hoping I can touch this up with some Tamiya clear blue brush paint. I am going to use the chrome wheels from the Revell 2006 ZO6 kit along with it's stock brakes since the 2014 kit basically has washers for the brake system. Tail lights have been detail painted and installed . All and all not a bad little kit for a snap together, but watch out for those headlight covers!
I just LOVE the new Corvettes, except for one styling element...the taillights!!! I think GM engineers tried too hard to resemble the Camaro lights...and succeeded! Here's the beginning of my re-style: I'm thinking classic round lights (4 of course) either behind black mesh, or exposed, surrounded by black mesh.
