Revell 1962 Corvette Disc Brake Option

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

So the new Revell 1962 Corvette kit has these, what I think, cool wheels.

However, the brake detail is very poor - there are no calipers on the discs! So after going through about ten boxes and drilling out some (and subsequently destroying), I remembered these wheels sets from Fujimi have brakes:

D67C42CD-73BB-41D4-9B6D-CDF99407AA77-192

I haven't seen all the sets that are in these series, but the few I have have the same "generic" Brembo disc brakes.

And lo and behold, the brakes basically slide right onto the kit wheel stub!

A little clean up - and it's not perfect (no caliper detail on the back of the disc) - but it is easy!!

Those are a big improvement Erik! I really don't understand why Revell is now putting junk disc brake setups in their new kits. :rolleyes: There's no excuse for it especially when they already have separate molds for rotors and calipers. I have a mold for a nice set of of rotors/vented calipers with details on both sides that I use to replace the Revell junk. One can only rob so many setups from other kits before it becomes a real problem.

Pegasis makes raw, chrome, or gold rotors with calipers, for their 19 and 23 wheels....I have used these many times
