This one is history. I will say that it was fun to replicate a car that I own. I have never done that before. I bet I made 100 trips out to the garage to look at something or the other on the car. The paint is left over touch up paint from when we had it painted 3 years ago. All the emblems were hand painted with Gel Pens (I wish they would dry quicker). It was a hard build because of two reasons. The kit is not very good is one. The other is the fact that so much of the car is black. I used different Blacks to try to get some detail into it. I think it turned out fair.

The interior is Light Gray Flock and then 2 different silver craft paints. Dark silver and light gray really.

The reason I used this kit was because it is the only one with the Crossfire Injected engine in it. Chevrolet only used the engine in the 1984 Corvette in 1985 they went to a Tune-port System. The Crossfire was used in the Camaro in 82', 83', 84.

Here you go.

A friend of mine had one of these and I got to drive it whenever i wanted. Fun car to drive, but I always thought this was the ugliest Generation of Corvettes. :D

You did a nice job on it Buck. :)
