New build underway. As usual the body was dealt with last summer.





I've gone with Mica Blue on this one.

Looks gorgeous Mr H.

I've never really understood the Corvette rear end with the transverse leaf spring set up, It's rigidly mounted, so each end acts much like a coil spring?

Beautiful paint Mr H.

Shay...yes they do it also gives the cars better contact and handling with the road due to them allowing each rear wheel to angle to be more flat on the surface of the road. The drawback is they are weaker than the ridged rear axle designs and require much more maintenance than the others do. Hope this helps some buddy.

Thanks all. I messed up with the date, don't know what I was thinking. Anyway it's a 2009 not 2014.

Thank you all. The paint is Tamiya's Mica Blue over a Silver Leaf undercoat. No clear coat as the shine is perfectly fine.

Some basic shading put into it. I tried to add a hint of blue to some metals.

The engine and suspension has been assembled and the exhausts painted up. A little bit of weathering has been done but not too much as I want this car to be clean.

Stellar work. Looking great. How about some clues as to how you did the toning on the exhaust?
