Grand Sport (Chassis #005)

Carroll Shelby giving the GS Corvette a good look over.

It's not perfect by any means, but it is finished. I struggled to get it this far with blind instructions, weather, paint and time issues. I learned a few things along the way and hopefully the #003 car will go smoother for it. This is the one of the A.M. kits, without P.E. parts and painted with Model Car World color match Pelham Blue. I use various Tamiya and Alclad on the chassis, wheels and engine. The flaws are pretty obvious but overall I'm happy, (To have it Done)

Looks good to me James.  These are not an easy build but look the part if care is taken.

Thanks guys, I think I'll do a little more detail and add the wipers. Just to match up to the photo better.

Nice job! I've got a couple of Xoto 1:18 die cast Grand Sports, but have never seen a kit. Is that 1:25?

It’s 1/24 by Accurate Miniatures. The GS was built to beat Shelby’s Cobras. He was just being nosy.
