Like it! You absolutely nailed it, that paint color looks so good on almost any early Corvette. What colors did you go with on the interior’ early Corvettes especially a convertible hard top or a rag top can almost make or break on interior colors; I’ve seen enough of your work to imagine that it flows right along with the rest of the car! Very tasteful treatment of a great subject!
Reminds me of the kind of cars we used to sit in the back of algebra class and draw on that greenish engineering graph paper, ( I use that paper at work every day, only it’s either tan or blue depending on if it goes to the state or local agency departments,) I have a couple of these Corvrttes in my stash one has already got a resin big block, tall Hillborne injectors in the box, the other I figured will stick with a blown small block, a knock of the Big John Mazmanian Vette. Some of the parts from the old Malco ‘Gasser 57 Vette work with the Revell kit, (none of the body with its horrible fitting front clip though).
Funny on ‘62 Vettes you really notice the rather straight top of the rear wheel wells, notice it on your rear 3/4 view; being that it’s origins are the Mazmanian Gasser it’s pretty evident the rear wheel wells on his full sized original were almost straight cut with the body line. Saw the original at Puyallup and Shelton Washington drags when I was a kid tagging along with my uncles, I remember to a 9 or 10 year old that I thought it sat super high!
I've wanted to build one of these ever since the kit came out. Seeing your version just makes me want to build one even more.
Very nicely done Vette! The modifications definitely improved the look. Especially I like the look of those wheels and tires, the American Racing wheels work the best when the spokes are not polished in my opinion. Like the metal flake red paint job as well. Nicely done!
