Scale I Build

Found 3 results

  1. I saw pictures of Chip Foose's Impostor for the first time in 2016, and waited with bated breath for it to be released as a model or a diecast. When nothing materialized, in 2017 I bought a 1:25 scale Revell 2005 Corvette C6 kit, as well as a Foose Design 1965 Chevy Impala. I began my build that year, knowing full well this was beyond my capabilities. Starting with the Impala body, I followed the recipe that Foose used to shorten the body, move the rear axle forward, chop the roof, and tilt the A pillars back. What I came up with was a fair simulation of the 1:1 car, although the rear end still doesn't look just quite right, probably because I cheated the lines a little: Since the Impala body sits on a Corvette chassis, next up was lengthening that by 5mm and narrowing the width. The undercarriage is also smoothed and painted, so the same had to happen to my build: In 2018, I worked on the engine and drivetrain, which is pretty much stock C6, except for lengthening the torque tube and adding a supercharger. In my case, I couldn't find just the right blower, so I made one out of a spare muffler and some drywall tape: After a five year hiatus where I have been honing my skills a bit, I have gotten back to this build. The interior is coming together pretty well, although the virtually stock C6 dash is presenting some real challenges mating to the Impala body: I will be working on adapting the dash to the wider body, and integrating the door cards to follow the dash lines. Stay tuned and please provide feedback as you see fit.
  2. Finally finished the 60th Anniversary Corvette '427' convertible -- you can follow the detail of the build at the link below to the 'WIP' section. Thx for looking and as always, appreciate all the comments, it was a fun , but long build!
  3. Inspiration for the build is the 2013 60th Anniversary C6 Corvette '427' Convertible, as seen below. Body is Arctic White with the 60th Anniversary graphics package, 'cup wheels' and the '427' logo on the Z06 hood. the interior is 'Diamond Blue' and alcantera trim.
