'62 Corvette Roadster (Revell)


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

some months ago, I did the Revell kit of the '62 Corvette Roadster.

I think the kit is great and the only issue I was facing was replacing the "chrome" on the kit's parts by something looking a bit more "real"...

Hope you like it, here we go:

Thanks folks, for your kind feedback. I'm glad you like the Vette...

The brochures on the passenger seat a clever touch.

Yes, they are nice, but in fact, they are more a lovely touch by Revell as they are included in the kit! Thoughtful of them, isn't it? ;)

'62 Vette in Honduras Maroon...

Well, actually it's a metallic red Ferrari color from Gravity Colours. B) It's quite similar to the color used on one of the models shown on the kit's box, which I liked a lot...

Is the "CORVETTE" on the nose a decal? 

Yes, it's a decal. The kit's body comes with the CORVETTE letters done as raised letters but there is also a decal included for those who want to make it easy on themselves... The decal looked good, so I sanded down the raised letters and used it. I'm happy with it! :rolleyes:

Not a fan of the wheels, but loved the paint job. 

Yesss... You either like these wheels or you don't...

Did the wheels come with the kit?

Yes, you have the option to go for stock or custom wheels. Even though normally I'm not a fan of custom parts on a beautiful vintage car, I went for those custom wheels because I think the Vette looks a bit too "tame" on stock wheels. The body had to be lowered just a tiny bit in order to make it all look nice.

I skipped the custom decals though (flame decals to be applied on the side of body...) :blink:

That color is perfect for that car. What is it?

This is "Ferrari Rosso Metallizzato" from Gravity Colors Europe, item no. GC-217. And 2k clear on top of that...
