MPC 1975 Corvette Roadster (original Issue)


Recommended Posts

Started back in July of 2015, work has been delayed because of a basement renovation that is taking forever. Painted Tamiya TS-51 blue with clear coat, with an interior painted with Tamiya silver. I saw a picture of a 1:1 done this way and really liked it.


This will have the luggage rack from an AMT 71 Corvette kit on it.


Engine choice will be the totaly inappropriate Kit engine (454 big block).

Thanks for looking and all comments are welcomed :-)

If it matters, this kit doesn't come with a master cylinder/brake booster, even though it shares 95% of its tooling with MPC's C3 coupes, all of which have that setup.  

I know you're an experienced builder, but do some mocking up on the hood pins & inner fender retaining slots etc to make sure the hood doesn't end up higher (not fully closing) at the cowl end.  

I like your color choices and will be watching for any updates.
