1/8 Scale 65 Corvette Sting Ray.

I'm really starting to feel old when I look at some of my old builds. Here's one that I built 28 years ago. I was young and painted it silver orange peel.Then stripped it and painted it baby blue??????

It sat for years when I finally decided to carefully take it all apart and do it right this time. It was redone

8 years ago. Three times lucky?

The only thing that has to be done is to rechrome the bumpers. I'm going to try out that Alclad Chrome paint on them.

Enjoy.....

not that one would really want to do it on a 1:1 car, but i have always wanted to use that rochester mechanical fuel injection on some 1/8 build. yours looks particularly nice under the hood. i wish someone would resin cast those pieces.

Wow! That's a beautiful 'Vette! Great finish! I have an original issue Big T that I built about 1962, unpainted, then repainted a couple years later in a terrible lavender color. What was I thinking? It's faded and falling apart, waiting for its third reincarnation, too!

Really nice! Which version is this? The red one or the metalflake blue?

I have an original blue one built box stock,and a metalflake blue I plan to build (someday)

I really like these kits,but it takes a lot of room just to build one.

That is where the seat belt buckles are placed.

Harry,

I like Kevin's answer to your question.

I'm not sure why the holes are there. I've always thought that I was missing a part. The build sheet shows the two holes but not showing anything to go into them.
