Were C7 and C8 Corvettes kitted?

Revell did a 2014 Stingray in both pre-painted snap and glue kits. No C7 Z-06 or ZR-1. There are 1/24 diecasts of these, but they are pretty poor, IMHO......Also no C8 plastic kits, but there are 1/24 C8 Stingray diecasts in several colors. These are about the same quality as the C7 diecasts.  They are generally inexpensive, but will most likely develop "paint rash" or worse if you keep them long enough....That is why I am not a fan of diecast models, especially for a car that is not even made out of metal to start with. I would love to see plastic models of the C7 and C8, especially the higher end models. I think the model companies got burned when they flooded the market with the C4s years ago, and now are gun shy, even though the C7 and C8 are significant evolutions to the brand.

Here's a couple of pictures of the C7 GS that I built --it was a kitbash of the Revell C7 Stingray, C7R and the grill and other pieces from the the 1/24 Maisto Z06, you can search for the full build detail under '2019 C7 Corvette GS' --its listed under the WIP and the 'Under Glass'

absolutely agree -- as Len said maybe we get a C8R from Revell or better yet a 1/24 scale from Tamyia, like their McClaren Senna kit! If we got that, with some creativity, one could craft a Z06 C8!

Let's keep our fingers crossed!
