Revell's Stingray III concept/show car. Older kit from the 1990s, but it builds well. The engine is a little crude, but livable.
Paint is Tamiya Violet Blue- the 1:1 is purple. Enough from me, on to the finished build.

Forgot the under bonnet pic.

Over all, I'm delighted with the result. Only down side is that the Corvette cabinet is full, and I'll have to move them to the Chevrolet cabinet.
That can wait till the holidays.

Very very nice. I have a can of this violet-blue to get used but wasn't sure how it would look so these photos are excellent reference.
Nice shine by the way.

Great job with the paint. A beautiful finish.

I see GM's concept of the three-lug wheel didn't take off very well.

It's over the purple plastic, so that will impact the colour to some extent, not sure how it would go over say, a white body.

Great gloss, it only needed a light polish too.
Thanks for the kind words too, gents.

Slick model. It doesn't look like the regular Vettes at all. Also,it's another kit I missed totally. Thanx for posting!
