This is the AMT release of the 1969 Chevrolet Corvair. I picked this up from Ebay. When it arrived, there were 2 almost complete kits in the box. One of the engines was started but that's about it. This was pretty straight forward. I knew what color I wanted as it was inspired by something I saw on the web. The paint is Duplicolor Chevrolet red and the clear is Minwax Poly. BMF and a Molotow knock off pen was used for the shiny bits. I added black flocking for the carpet and package tray. I added flat washers and sheet styrene for the disc brakes and calipers. I also added button snaps for the pulleys and scratch built a distributor and plug wires. Battery cables are 28 gauge wire with crimped ends I found at the craft store. Front wheels articulate courtesy of an old parts tree and some push pins. This one was a bit of a challenge and I am happy with the results. Thanks for looking.
I won this in a raffle at an IPMS club meeting. I don't build planes but since i won it, i thought what the heck. I added a base, motor, battery and a switch. Thanks for looking
