Palmer '70 Vette - what to do?

33 posts in this topic

I have long planned to use the larger 63-67 Palmer Corvette larger "scale" convertible body as the basis for a salt lake streamliner, and the smaller 99 cent kit body as a salt lake go kart streamliner. I  also think the smaller convertible body might make credible pedal car and have several kits and built-ups stashed with those thoughts in mind.

Well, I am very surprised to see how many people are for me opening it and letting this plague out upon the world!

I have to say I'm really thinking this could become the basis for Chia-Vette after all. Man, I didn't know these were this bad. I mean, the box art is cool, as Mike said, but I didn't think it would be worse than, say, a bad old Revell or something. Man, now I'm almost ITCHING to open it. Of course, the itching could mean there's a leak in the containment plastic, as it seems to be suggested! 

Of course, if I open it, I'll have to slaughter it in a review. I guess that's okay, eh? 

It does bite but I doubt you will be infected

I think it's too late anyway. I'm either immune or already infected, so I think I'm safe! :)

From what I've seen on a couple of other posts, it's something akin to a bar of soap with a vaguely Corvette outline. 

You KNOW I'm going to have fun with that!

The Palmer 1971 1/25 Challenger kit was good . Blatent copy of MPC.

And I think it lives on today as the Lindberg '74.
