1963 Corvette Stingray, ‘route 66’,1/24 Revell.

And now for something that doesn’t shoots, fires at or blows up things. One of the coolest TV shows on in the early 1960’s was ‘route 66’, it had two guys driving across the America[and Canada] in a Corvette, working at odd jobs and interacting with the people they met along the way. Shot in black and white, It ran for four years, Chevrolet provided a new model Vette for most of the seasons. The kit is a Revell 1/24 quick build, I used Tamiya TS-58 pearl light blue for the body, and MM 1942 dark tan for the interior.
