Mirage Hobby 1/400 Type 1241 Corvette

feel like a floaty boaty thing as a side project to the Ferrari

might actually get some time at the bench now life is settling down after everything thats been going on for the last few months

picked this up at a show for a whopping 3 quid

you get the choice of two russian, one bulgarian and one iranian scheme and at the minute i dont know which to do
the colour call out is interesting.....everything is coded but they dont actually say which brand of paint it is! lol......took a bit of working out to realise it is humbrol....will see what i have that is close lol.....think a lot of this will be brush painted

I can't be the only one who thinks of Corvette as a car first!

progress with Boaty McBoatface.......its so small ive glad ive invested in one of those magnifying headsets jobbies
gone old school with this...apart from the original over all base coat of grey ive done it all with a hairy brush
next step is a gloss coat and decals, and maybe a dark wash
