I\'m new here and thought I would post my latest completion. 12 years, 11 months ago #1

LaToya invited me here a few weeks ago. I lurked aroound the site a bit and thought that I would post something tonight. Not a lot of traffic yet, but I am sure that will change.
My name is Chris, I\'m 38 and live in MN. I have three boys of which one is a hard core modeler himself. The other two just enjoy seeing what I build next.
Here is my latest completed build.
Revell\'s 2006 Z06 Corvette. This was painted with Cobra Colors Atomic Orange. Interior is a two tone black and gray. I used a pin vise and drilled out each dimple in the brakes and painted them in aluminum and gave them a slight black wash for added realism. Pretty much built box stock.
It\'s a nice kit with just a few nits, but nothing I couldn\'t figure out. I plan on builidng the 2005 Corvette in Daytona Sunset Metallic.
I took a few shots in and out and I\'ll post one of each here.
Well, that\'s my introduction for now.

Very nice job. Welcome to the site and what an entrance. If you have before and during pictures, I think you should enter the contest in the cars forum. Even a picture of the unopened box would suffice as a before if you have good during shots. Let us know and enter the contest.
Good to see another new name on the roster.

Thanks everyone. I noticed after taking picutres I have a few spots that need touching up to bring it up to par.

I\'m working on a Porsche now and have a few others on deck I am tinkering with in between drying sessions.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the comments. I built this as I love the new look Corvette and heavily anticipate the new ZR1 of which I know I\'ll build a few examples. My oldest son(17) loves Corvettes and I basically build them for him to have one day.

Thanks again.
Chris
