Hey thanks guys for the nice words and the welcome!  I'm glad to be back on this build.  It's been too long and I'm really excited to get this one done. I'm still deciding whether to use gloss black lacquer or black base coat lacquer with clear lacquer for the body.  I've been exclusively using base coat/clear coat on my other builds and I'm used to it so I'll most likely go that route.

It's been a few months since my last update.  I finished painting and assembling the interior.  It's painted with a mix of 2 parts Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow and 1 part Tamiya XF-2 Flat White.  I just have to paint and install the car phone.  I used Microscale black decal stripes on the seats.  

The body has been painted, clear coated and polished.  I used Gravity Colors Anthracite Black with Gunze Mr. Super Clear.  I installed the front turn signal lenses which are painted Tamiya X-25 Clear Orange on the insides.  I put Bare Metal Foil in behind the lenses.  The Corvette kit's windshield was a bit thick and stuck out too much.  It gets installed from the outside and looked out of scale so I made a windshield out of clear acetate.  

The chassis, suspension, exhaust and engine parts will be painted next.

Thanks for looking in.
