2005 LeMans build-Corvette C6-R, #64, GT1 - Finally finished

Well, Le Mans started one week and about 7 hours ago. I finally finished this Vette. So, it will be considered a 1 week race/build, lol. I spent the last 4 hours doing final detail on this. I had issues with BMF on the green led in the door, so I hand painted chrome with the green. It actually turned out great. Two of those hours were spent on making the chassis fit the body. It was an awful fit in the end as the front right wheel/tire was pushed way back in the fender. So the old dremel and some brake relocation and I got it to fit right. I loved the build, but am glad it is finally over!!! I feel like I let myself down, but this was a huge undertaking for a 24 race. If I do it again, I will build something a lot less detailed. Hope you all like my Le Mans build!!!

As always the progress can be found here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5601

These were all outside to show the true color in daylight:

Last one outside on the tarmac, but way out of scale. Still works for me:

Here are the inside photos from the studio. Wait, I don't have a studio, but I tried.:
