1964 corvette nomad

Recommended Posts

Back on the bench with a 1954 corvette nomad. 

Building for a club build-off deadline is two months this is where im at so far everything is fitting well next is to lengthen the chassis to get the right wheelbase now that the body can be used to measure.

Ooh that looks tricky, but I’m sure it is going to turn out fine. 

I have never seen that car before, thank you for that

Looks like a splendid conversion. I'm very interested to see how it turns out. The reference photo looks great.

Cool!  It seems sectioning is needed.  Only 2 months?  That's a challenge.

Yeah, super cool!   Both of these look nice.

I had the Scale Exotics resin conversion once, but sold it.  :unsure:  It was well done...should you ever run across one.

Wow, that's pretty amazing bodywork, I'd have not thought of doing it that way, very cool indeed!
