Question: Revell '67 Corvette Kits' Scale

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I want to build the Historic Racing Miniatures 1963 Z06 Corvette (a resin transkit) which uses the Revell '67 Corvette as a donor kit. The HRM resin is 1/24 scale but I noticed that box art for the various Revell / Monogram kits (convertible / coupe) shows the scale to be 1/25. Is that a mistake on the box art (with the Revell kits actually 1/24)?

Thanks

The older Monogram Black rat kit is 1/24th scale I believe.

There are both 1/25 and 1/24 scale '65-'67 Vettes in the Revell lineup, some Revell 1/25 and some Monogram originated 1/24 kits. I think this kit would be the best donor:

I think it's what became of the '65 kit, or at least the most recent variant.

The 60's Grand Sports were tube framed hand-built race cars that had very little in common with production 'Vettes except for general external appearance.

I believe the Z06's were RPOs based on production cars. (kind of like the ZL1s and ZR1s of the 60's and 70's)

They were. The Grand Sports are specially made RACE cars. ZO6's were based on production cars.

I would inquire to HRM about the scale of that Z06 transkit. Harold offers a transkit of the 1960 Cunningham LeMans Corvette for the Revell '58-'59 Corvette models, which are 1/25. I buy HRM kits from Island Collectibles and the default scale in their catalog for HRM products is 1/24, with no reference made for kits that happen to be 1/25. I contacted Ed @ IC and he verified that the '60 LM Corvette transkit was indeed 1/25.

It's a 1/25 if I am not mistaken. I have one of those, and I planned to combine it with the Revell '67.

You fellows were right when you said to check with HRM. The scale is indeed 1/25 as Harold said he used the Revell '67 Corvette kit as his base.
