Far from my best work, and if I'm honest, I'm glad to get it off the bench at last. Work hassles and COVID have sapped my mojo, and holidays and the garden have eaten into bench time, so I'm looking for a restart for the Autumn. The kit fought me all the way, some of which reflected its age, some my ineptness... It's a comprehensive kit, with parts for many versions of the Corvair, but I'd only recommend it if you're a regular builder who gets their kicks from beating recalcitrant plastic into submission or you absolutely have to have a Corvair on your shelf.

best,

M.

Nice build. I found some NOS Stinger decals on ebay so of course I had to go out & buy the AMT Prestige kit. You are right about the kit & the build it had me going crazy at times. I somehow lost one of the headers, & that's all I need to complete. I'm gonna modify some parts box headers & then it will be done.

Thanks, gentlemen... with a bit more distance from the battle to finish the build, I'm remembering WHY I wanted to have a Stinger on my shelf! I don't think anyone will ever do a Corvair again, so we have what we have.

best,

M.
