PostSubject: A couple of kits for trade   Sun 08 Dec 2013, 5:31 pm

I picked these up at a local thrift shop a couple of days ago.  They are not the type of car I usually build, but I couldn't pass on them.  
 

 

 
The Nissan box has been opened, but the parts packages are all sealed.  The Daytona is still factory sealed.  If anybody is interested let me know and we will see if we can work out a trade.

If I recall, the Miami Vice Daytona was actually a Corvette with repro body, and I think the kit is, isn't it ??
The Borrani wire wheels would look good on a rod !

Afraid I can't answer.  I was never a Miami Vice fan and the kit is still sealed.  Maybe somebody else can give you an answer.

I know on the TV Show the car was a Corvette with a body kit on it. I have a kit also but never have opened it, so don't know about that part.

As far as I know it's a Corvette under a fibreglass Daytona shell, just like the real one in Miami Vice.

I have a glue bomb of this, but it's the Monogram version, so not sure if it is the same as this but thought I'd show a couple of pictures of what it is like, the cockpit looks similar to a Corvette model I did...

It is a '78 C-3 'vette chassis with a Daytona body that has the wheelbase stretched 4 inches. The real MV cars used a 'vette windshield and a Daytona body that was narrowed 5 inches besides being stretched.
