Revell 1963 Corvette

Recommended Posts

The Revell SNAP kit of the '63 Vette. A great kit! It might be a "snapper", but it's worth your time, I think.

In retrospect, I should have used a wash on the wheels and applied foil to the emblem on the fender. Hey, live & learn!

Very NICE indeed, the color looks great, I have an AMT 63 that I built a few years ago that I'm going to redo I never was real happy with it so it's been through the purple pond and ready for restoration sometime :unsure: you did a great job on yours!! :D

Very nice Vette! I like those snap-tite kits. They're quick, and build up into very presentable models. Good job on the build - great color.

I have to totally agree here….this is one of the best snap kits around and you have proven that with a bit of attention to detail a little time and BMF you can turn out a really nice addition to your collection…..

Well done!!!

Nice build, I do like their whole line of recent snap kits from them.

A while back my club did a snap kit build with a local youth group. We never paid attention to the snappers, but they sure opened our eyes! Revell did a very nice job on those. They're fun to build and detail out the body and interior. You get a nice shelf model. I did this one..

I did a 63 roadster a few weeks ago, and added a top from an original corvette model from the 1960's (65 maybe?).

I added some metal washers for brake disks.

I work for a HobbyTown and am always recommending that whole lineup to folks looking to get a kid (or a few) into models. I do warn them that the '05 Impala has a shot gun, just in case, though.

Tom and Sam - those are some sweet looking '63's! They are great kits. Fun for all ages, I think. I may have to pick up another.
