Corvette C5-R Compuware

Recommended Posts

Its been a while since I have posted anything constructive so this is a Revell Compuware C5-R. This build took about 3 months to build, and was built specifically for the HLJ 2013 Plamo Contest.

The build:

-Tamiya Mica Blue

-Rustoleum Lacquer Clear over decals

-Wet sanded with 1000,2000,4000,6000,12000

-Polished with Scratch X

-Model Factory Hiro fittings and hoses

-Various carbon fiber patterns used throughout

-Scratch built electric box

-Scratchbuilt brake ducts

-Model Car Garage photo etch kit

-Misc details throughout

I entered this build in the Intermediate category, and expected not to place whatsoever. To my surprise, I placed 3rd in the advanced category and won a 10,000 yen spending spree at HLJ. I felt the car was not all that great,and could have been better, but I ran out of time.

We are our own worst critics. Great model, you deserve the award.

Took the words right out of my mouth ! :D

The wash on all of the parts really brings out the details and makes a huge difference !

Thanks for the kind comments guys. I really am my own worst critic, as I try too hard to make the perfect car (most likely impossible). The nice thing about using washes is that small imperfections can be hidden while at the same time allows certain parts of the car to look more realistic.

With the holidays over, I look forward to posting more projects here.

Arnold, that is one of the nicest examples of that kit that I have seen. You knocked it out of the park!
