Hot Wheels 1/25 Tribute - "Sweet 16" - Custom Corvette


Recommended Posts

The past 2 years I've been working on all the original 1968 Sweet 16 Redline Hot Wheels cars. I have acquired all the 1/25 kits to build all of them into Hot Wheels. So far I've built 6 of the 16. 

This is the Custom Corvette, started with Revell 1969 427 kit, a nice detailed kit actually. Shot Duplicolor Metalcast Orange over silver base, complete with "chrome" chassis and engine compartment, and off-white interior.

Wheels are Pegasus "T's" big and littles. Used a red and black Sharpie to create the Redline look.

I've included a pic of each of the other tribute builds.

Freak'in Awesome! You even got the Custom T-Bird in dark green with the black top!

I want to buy each and every one of them!

Personally, I got stuck on my first one (in trying to do this).; the Python (AMT Tiger Shark), that is, the roof has that unevenness about it and needs tons of sanding.

Thanks for all the ideas and inspiration.
