Superdetailed Monogram 1/8 Corvette

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I'm new to this forum, but thought of showing off my latest model. It is the first in over 40 years. I got a kit as a Christmas present in 1977. A -65 Corvette Sting Ray in 1/8 scale, by Monogram. However, I thought it was so bad in the detail that it was never built.
But 2019 I got to myself that maybe anyway. So I googled and found that some had built it with added details that got me inspired. So about 1500 working hours later it was finished. Those who built the kit can see that a lot of additions and modifications have been made; the entire chassis, openable doors and detailed interior, etc.

I have made a complete documentation of the project in progress. 65 pages of text and images that can be obtained for free as a pdf file from me upon request by email to: larsinger@telia.com

Simply amazing!  Your patience and fortitude has paid off with the detail in this build.  Most of us wouldn't consider committing to such and undertaking.  You have done so with great success.

The level of detail on this is mesmerizing. Looking at some of the pictures it is hard to remember this is a model.

Beautiful model! It could easily pass for the full scale! You must have done a ton of research to get all of the details right. Excellent work everywhere you look!

Truly museum quality Lars!    Your build may inspire others to dig out that old kit that they had languishing away for years and do something remarkable with it as you have done.

A good quality acrylic or glass display case might be a good investment for a model of this quality if you have not got one for it already.
