AMT '61 Corvair


Recommended Posts

Going through old pics and came across this one. I don't think I had shown it here, at least not for a very ling time.

A rebuild of a built kit I picked up at an NNL East show years ago. Pretty simple old original curbside kit but it was fun to rebuild.

Neat!  I especially like the color!

Did you see Chasing Classic Cars last night?  The restoration of the Corvair Futura show car! Very interesting episode!

Beautiful! How did you detail the hood louvers?

Thanks guys. 

Tom, No, I didn't see it. I usually don't watch the car related "reality" shows.  I tend to yell at the screen too much during the foolishness and it makes it too hard to hear what's going on.

That said, I have seen that show and it's not bad,, nothing to holler at anyway but I don't have that channel at the moment.


Lee, After I painted and cleared the body I sprayed some flat black into the louvers at a low angle from the back. After it dries, I just wetsanded the black off the sheetmetal and polished the paint out again.
