Since a 1/25 scale model kit of the C7 Grand Sport does not exist --this was a major kitbash using the 2016 Revell C7 Stingray kit as the base, cut out the rear fenders and rocker panels of the Revell C7R, for the 'wide body' rear fenders. Cut out all vents, grill openings and used bits from a 1/24 Maisto C7 Z06, cup wheels from Plazmos, spoiler and ground effects from C1 models, 'black' corvette badging from Speedway decals and paint is Automotive Touchup, Arctic White and Carbon Flash Black center stripe, 'hash' fender stripes are Mecha Acrylic Gunmetal, all cleared with AT 1K Clearcoat --rubbed out and polished. You can follow the build chronology on the 'WIP' section. I've also included a picture of the car that was my inspiration. So here's some pictures(I still need to work on my photography skills) of the finished model -- appreciate any comments, thx Al
I love the new Corvette C7 with only a few things I don't like, like the odd non-Vette taillights, do not like them, but I'll accept them. Looking at the new Grand Sport Editions released earlier this year, one is especially special, the Heritage Edition. A reverse color combo, white body, blue stripe and red fender hashmarks. I'm in love with this color combo, so here I am building one from the Revell Snaptite 2014 Corvette. The Grand Sport (GS) and Z06 have a few body differences from the stock Vette. One is the rear wells are flared 4-inches for wider tires and the rocker-air-ducts located in front of the flares. Also different is the side vents have a unique trim design for GS and different for Z06. First had to cut out the stock wheel well edges to maintain the marker lights, fairly easy to do and added the air-ducts detail Next to replicate the side vent GS design Body work done, shot the paint, ready to clear next... Looking pretty close so far...
