Real.

Harry thought we'd say model!

Also, it looks like the inside of the body is painted white, which I believe fiberglass would usually be left white there?

I'll vote model.

My first thought was there's not enough weight on the tyres.

The badging on the coves appears to be tampo printed; no 3D effect.

I am presently working on an MPC 1/16th '57 Corvette I have painted in these same colors, and it looks like this. I had it at the last Desert Scale Classic show in Phx last April in the WIP section. I used the tires from an AMT 1/16th '57 kit with acrylic painted white walls. My chrome being older and loose in the box when I got the kit is not as nice as on this car but the parts I have look like those on this car. My guess is a well built MPC 1/16th model. Patrick M

Model. Besides the 'no weight' issue on the tires, I also feel the curve-in on the front of the cove is too extreme.

I'm voting model. The surface it sits on looks too smooth for pavement. Looks like gray painted plywood.

Real. If that is a model, I'm really suprised. Who in earth could build that nice model? Everything looks like real, chrome parts and paint... All of those little badges and other little body details make it look like real. And if I see correctly there is some weight on the front tire. Don't know, it can be model too, but I vote real, because it looks like it. Tires are looking very realistic too, it can't be model... Don't know, let's have a see what it really is.
