In light of the recent reissue of this kit, this is my build from the last issue, done shortly after it was issued.

This is actually the release from about 10 years ago or so. It built up just fine. The one thing I did was to cut the front pan from the chassis and mold it into the rest of the body. If you do not, you have a unrealistic seam.

Very nice clean build.

I have always liked this kit. Will have to grab one of the reissues.

Very nice! I did the same thing with the front pan when I built this one recently--it seemed the only reasonable solution to that problem. Nice work with the paint on those wheels!

Thanks again, and glad to help make them more realistic. Sure would like to see a new tool with a better chassis and interior. The could keep this body, it's fine, just tool up some interior parts, and a new chassis.

Great build!!!

This car in person is unbeliveable tiny, looks like a real baby Corvette. I know a guy that removed the stock engine from one, and installed a 250 Chevy six into it. gearbox was from a Dodge Dart, and rear end was from a Ford Maverick, with a shortened housing to fit the Opel. That thing was a widow maker...

I learned to drive in one of these. I've got the reissue on order and will paint it canary yellow with black interior to match that one. I hope I can do as nice a job on mine as you did on this one
