AMT 53 Corvette done

Recommended Posts

I started this one while waiting for the high winds and -15 degree wind chill to go away so I can repaint the cab of my 29 Ford P/U. I painted the body of this kit and a few others in the fall to get me through the winter season. The weather is due to warm up for the next few days so maybe I can get to do more painting on this one too. I'm not planning to do anything fancy on this one so it might be one of the few stock models I've done. I was thinking about swaping the Blue Flame six out for a V-8 but I like the six motor.

Here's one I did a few years ago.   Great kit for any number of ways to build.

Nice work. I like the ghost flames and newer V-8.

Thanks.   Looking forward to seeing more of yours.  If I were to build it now, would probably be fairly stock.

It will be nice to see an old Blue Flame get it's due. With the multiple carburation and a little detailing it should look great.

Working on the engine and dashboard. I had to order red embossing powder so I'm waiting on that to do more interior work. I also need to do a little more work on sanding the body and then touching it up.

I been having trouble getting the front of the car lower, and I finally took the front end apart and cut the springs and the king pin down. This is the final stance. I got the taillights on.

Getting close now. Body is compounded, the front is almost done and the windshield is in. I was having a tough time with gluing the the windshield in until I remembered I had bought a couple of rolls of of thin double stick tape from Fastcap. That made it easy.
