1953 Corvette Roadster
Here is my build of the 1953 Corvette (Revell 07067). I built this a couple years ago. I have a new photo setup, so I am revisiting and posting some of my older projects.
Quite different from later Corvettes, the ’53 used a modified version of the venerable ‘Blue Flame’ six and a 2-speed Powerglide transmission.
The body is painted with Tamiya rattle-can lacquer. The red interior is Montana acrylic spray from an art supply store. The metalwork is Tamiya aluminum acrylic (I had not discovered Bare Metal Foil yet).
