hello everyone, thought maybe some of you may like to see the newly released amt sock it to me vette built....and built quickly. two weeks made this a fast but fun project. also included in the photos are pics of the katch the kat metallic orange 1 in 12 kits s.e. version i was lucky enough to score when i bought 3 of these kits. thought maybe some folks may enjoy seeing one, if they have not grabbed one yet. any comments or questions are certainly welcome. thanks for looking. a.c. the ace.

Awesome! Decals look great on this. Were they easy to work with?

hi alan, thanks to you and everyone for your kind and encouraging comments. as for the decals in this kit,...they are a bit tricky to use, but making sure they sit on the backing paper for 2-3 minutes,..as well as having the area of the body nice and wet, ya should be ok. i have read several complaints re. the newer amt decals that some builders find them tough to use. i found the key is the wetter the better, as once in position its difficult to slide them around, as they are thin. i've also found that decal solvents don't seem to have any real affect on them. so, make certain all your air bubbles and such are worked out and pressed into place even more than you usually do....the quality is there but patience and precision is the key here. hope this helps...if you build one, please post pics,..i'd love to see it as well. regards and thanks, a.c.

That's a real nice looking '62 Vette AC! The decal/paint work looks great! Do these wheels/tires come in the kit?

I have never seen this built with the decals, and I must say you did it justice. This is just so cool, I really dig box art builds and this one is great!

Looks good. Must be a pretty clean kit if you got it done in two weeks and looking that good.

hi jon, thanks for the comments.....i sprayed it with testors laquer # 1831mca-fiery orange. i didn't use clearcote , just let it dry for a day, then applied the decals, and polished it lightly with some detailer spray wax. its the first time i used this type of testors paint,...nice result, clean, good shine, covers well. the tamiya sprays are the best , jon, even better than testors.

Its good to see a reissue of a 62 Vette, they make great gassers and modified production cars as well. Nice job on the decals,big decals usually give me fits. Bill
