69 Corvette 427

I finished this one up at 1 AM today. Pretty quick build for me. Started it at the beginning of January. Thanks to a couple of guys, especially George Bojaciuk for sending some needed replacement parts!

The box art showed the car sitting a bit high to my way of thinking so I lowered the suspension just a tad. Painted Testors Lacquer Inca Gold. Love the way the color came out. The only other mods were aluminum tubing for the exhaust tips.

Beautiful! Thanks for the heads-up about the high sit. Inspired by your build, I started working on one of these, and have it just about ready for paint.

Thanks guys. Glad I could inspire you Snake. I was inspired when I saw Kelson's. That box art just didn't look right but I almost got it too low.make sure you paint the entire underside of the interior bucket. You can see bare plastic around the rear wheel wells if you.look close enough. 

George- Thanks again for the help. With what you sent I now have enough to build another using a built up one that I was given a while back. It was missing quite a bit. I WILL send you some more for all of the help

Later-

We’re good Tom! That’s the box I used when I did the Vette in Four Barrels, Four Speeds and Horsepower. I think the body is cut out for the ‘69 rear valance. Part should be there in a diff color. 

I just wanna’ see finished pics! That would be payment enough!
