Revell Snaptite Enzo Rebuild

Recommended Posts

I bought my nephew a model kit a few months back which he assembled by himself and very strangely took care of and didn't break in bits apart from the rear glass engine cover.
They are a very simplified kit and are lacking in detail but for a kid of his age it was ideal.



He cornered me recently and said he wanted it painted blue so I took the chance to detail it while I was at it
I fully stripped it down, detailed the full interior, painted the glass, added projectors to the headlamps, detailed the engine and chassis, stripped the chrome off the wheels and painted black, prepped the body then painted metallic blue and laqured.
2 hours later (the quickest build I have ever done) and I was left with this.

If anyone asks about that rear glass flaw tell 'em you were copying a detail from the real car that had a glass crack under extreme down pressure while driving at max velocity on the Autobahn.:)

Very nice – your nephew must have been ecstatic!

 

I know my little ones get excited whenever I incorporate one of their suggestions into my builds

Looks good.  And unlike my full detail, this one is finished - TWICE!  LOL

Interested to know what color/brand paint and clear you used? Also, I’m struggling to find the right paint for the dash...

That's great that you are getting your Nephew into building I have done the same with my Nephew he is 12 now but I bought him his first kit the Revell Grave Digger snap 4yrs ago and he loved it

Great job.  It's also great to see a young person interested in the hobby.
