Commissioned build: Revell 2010 Jetstream Blue Corvette ZR1


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I was commissioned by a fellow club member to build him a copy of my Jetstream Blue ZR1.

I purchased a new kit and feverishly copied every detail from the original build but kept the wheels box stock (his request.) Stripped the chrome from the kit wheels and painted them gloss black, then coated them with a layer of Alclad chrome. The roof was decaled with Scale Motorsports carbon fiber and coated with Future once dry. The tire stance width on the kit is not even close to the 1:1 car so I corrected that by adding 3 mm shims to the wheelback mounting point on all four corners to push out the wheel edge to the edge of the fenderwell......also, I dropped the suspension down in the front and rear during mockup to ensure the car would sit almost level but would match the 1:1.

I am pretty happy with the end result given the road to get there.

Photos were done on my Canon EOS 30D.......enjoy!
