Christian W :) Thanks to all of you. It sucks that the time for drying lasts days. The next days the red body will become a wet sanding to prepare it for a final layer of clear coat. It should be prepared too for the case to cut of the top roof and replace it eventually.

Today I took out the wheel out of the mold. It's ok again. Also I took the roof out of the right mold. It's harder than the "only" clear one but not 100% dry jet at the surfsce.

I keep you informed.
25. September at 19:29:39
Christian W Next failure :/. The mold broke while I tried to get the part out. There was a big bubble of air on the bottom of the mold which made the mold to the surface of the top roof to thin. The part it self is not that bad (only 1 millimeter thick) but still to flexible and not even hard.
Next try's coming soon.
26. September at 17:39:56
Christian W I think I have no solution for the Project "glass top Roof". The latest parts aren't hard yet. It's a week now for drying and they are still flexible. Now I'm looking for an alternative material.
2. October at 04:26:35
arielvitanovus *fingers crossed! I appreciate your efforts!
8. October at 00:45:28
Christian W It doesn't work. I'm going to complete it now :( Sorry. I have no other solution for the clear top roof. The parts I did are all still flexible. I don't know, what else to do.
14. October at 08:11:35
Munkyslut That's a shame Christian, I thought that was going to be an invaluable new process for custom parts.
At least you persevered with it ;)
14. October at 08:36:17
Christian W It is a shame and I'm not satisfied to stop at this point.

I want to get this done somehow and (sadly) sameday. This Corvette has to be completeted and sent to the owner. I have no more time for the experiment on this kit.

Maybe someday I'll get the solution. I have to find a material which works for this tiny part.
The suspisious thing is, that the wheels (which I've made with the rest of the material) are hard like a rock and the thin parts aren't. This doesn't go into my mind.
14. October at 08:42:13
Munkyslut Yeah good point, usually the thicker material would take far longer to properly set hard.

Does this kit really exist? I can't find anything on the Internet about this kit number (85-1640). So I changed the number without the (85-) and found one....

Is it prepainted?

Christian W I found it on Amazon. The Body is prepainted and the Windows are already built in. This woud be a nice Piece for me. For me, who's not that familiar with those big decals.

Anthony D'Agostino Oh, and I am not sure about the Del Sol, but my new car has a rear fog light as well. It is placed at the lowest part of the rear of my car, the hope is that anyone behind me, will see me before they plow into me at twice my speed while in the fog. It's logical, but not sure how well it works, since I am the one driving and we don't have much fog here in the Philippines.
27. June at 14:10:55
Christian W That's funny about the fog light and quite interessting, that you have it too!
I can tell you: my Del Sol isn't leaking. Not when it rains or in the car wash. I read about it but I think mine is a good one. It's original all over - except the Radio.

Munkyslut Just scrolling through that lot now, some really interesting subjects, love the beach buggy, my favourite I think ;)
1. July at 12:56:55
Chris Greathouse I almost picked up that beach buggy... Great builds!
2. July at 17:58:48
Christian W I'll take the buggy and take a couple of more picture. It was not my built. I only painted it with clear cote and completed it. At the moment I didn't even now whether I did something else. It's a long time ago.
2. July at 20:31:50
Chris Greathouse I also love the VW Bug in the first couple pictures :D What is that sticking out of the window?
2. July at 20:34:55
Christian W On the right side, right under the rear view mirror? That is a hose for fresh air to the driver. Really. No joke. The original gas it too.
2. July at 20:38:20
Anthony D'Agostino Those bugs are unbelievable simple sturdy engineering, simple air cooled era, easy to work on and fun to drive, great combination compared to the ridiculously complex cars of today. Always wanted one, but I had to have the 66 mustang too, that beat out the bug when I was a teen. In hindsight, I should have gone with the bug!
3. July at 07:25:14
James C Very nice work Christian
24. September at 21:50:11
Christian W Thank you! I like it too and I'm glad that I was able to take it apart. There are a lot of other cars which are dusty ;)
It's a nice variety of completely build ups.

Bob Hall If I could own 1 Corvette in this life, It would be a Beauty C2 like this !
10. September at 02:30:43
Christian W Oh, tahnk you! It is quite interessting on the C2, taht the design is a lot of straighter than the C1. This was a huge step I think. Look at the straight side with this hard line above the wheels. This is my Favorit part on the C2. And then the rear with it's drop design. Was it Bill Mitchell? Well done.
10. September at 10:48:34
Bill Newcomer Nice 'vette. I had a girlfriend who's dad own a high performance shop. One of his customers cars was one of these with the 427ci 435hp triple carbs. Definitely drool material.

Slavo Hazucha Nice 'vette! The combo with the matt black looks interesting - is it there to stay, or will it get a unified gloss finish later?
23. August at 21:15:50
Christian W Thank you!
After I unwrapped the body, I'm a little sad, that I didn't paint a glossy clear cote first. This satin matt looks pretty good. So I'm not sure what to do. It was planned to give it a glossy shine all over.
But: how would it be to get it a completely satin matt clear cote? Goes straight through my mind. Hmmm....
Currently it is planned for a shiny finish.
23. August at 21:28:51
Christian W The red can not be polished. It has no clear cote :/
23. August at 21:29:32
Tim Heimer Tape the black up and clear coat it. The black looks great!
23. August at 23:31:08
Christian W Until the paint job I was not sure what to do. At the end I decided to paint it glossy allover. I really wasn't sure, how it will look with the matt part on the hood.

The interior is done today. So it is straight on the road to get finish.
25. August at 21:55:08
Christian W Finish line! 14 parts to go.
10. September at 21:21:01
Christian W btw: the cleaning and polishing of the windows went pretty good.
11. September at 08:58:12
Tim Heimer It's getting there!
11. September at 14:41:36

James C Stunning paint job! That's awesome!
20. June at 20:42:51
Christian W Thank you! When I bought the McLaren 720 I decided to build this one. I always loved the car. Not only, because it was terribly fast in the computer game "Need for Speed 2". This was my favorite car in it.
The kit itself is a good one. Only the mock up engine is a little cheap but at the end you can't see much of it. Would it have an opening hood, it would look not that nice.
But the kit fits pretty good. Also the doors closed fitting very good. As summery I could recommend the kit.

The color. It is Mercedes-Benz, rauchsilbermetallic ("smokesilver" MB 702) in a rattle can by Dupli Color. Clear coat is also rattle can but by K-Lack.
21. June at 07:02:23
Tim Heimer What make is the kit?
21. June at 18:38:44
Tim Heimer Never mind, I just saw it! I hate getting old! LOL

10. September at 02:32:10
Christian W Thank you!
Thie model kit is so good. It fits perfect and it's relative easy to built. I like it and so it came, that I bought another kit of this.
Bevor I built this model kit, I never noticed the louvers on the front hood or trim on the rear hood. Then I read about the tiny differents between 1958-1960. I always had the 1960 in mind. But this is a little more interessting because of the tiny design differents.

Christian W I know! Same here. After I was done with it, I was thinking about to add more Pace Cars.

You know, that my project sounds "Silver Corvette". But when I saw the decals for the pace car, there was no other possibility as building it as a pace car. So I have to buy another C4 convertible to build one in silver *lol*

When I look at the Pictures, I like the rear a lot. I like the days, when I see a C5 in the area of my workplace. Silver with black roof. A daily driver. One of my favorite Corvette. I have the feeling, that I'm a modern guy. C5 - C6 - C7. They are sporty.

3. July at 21:56:44
Christian W Thank you very much! It turned out very well. There are small tiny incorrect spots but you have to look pretty good to it. At the end I'm satisfied and think about, to turn the dark red metallic body to a complete model kit. It us shiny an smooth. It would make a good model kit too.

Munkyslut I like that box art, will make for a very pretty car.
I always quite liked the soft nose/tail cars, especially the '74-'77 cars with the small rear window & big pillars.
The '78-on big rear window never looked as good to me.
Are you building this now Christian?
4. September at 10:03:43
Christian W I will start one of the 3rd Generation soon. Sadly I don't have one with the small rear window. Only the "Fastback". I'm the other way round guy: I like the big rear window. Both are sexy anyway.
4. September at 12:04:24
Christian W I only have this kit (1976 Corvette (AMT/ERTL 38421, 1:25) with the small window.

One C3 (small window) I have already built. It was "kitbashed" by a friend and I finished it. You don't see it. But I can't say, what the kit based on. I guess, it was a Revell-Monogram kit. But I'm not sure. The plastic was silver, the rear end orange.

It's a Little different from Knight 2000 Knight Rider (MPC 1-0675, 1:25)

Pay Attention to the star at bottom right.
It says "A Golden Opportunity Kit to win a 1984 Corvette..."
On the others box it says "A Golden Opportunity Kit"

Munkyslut I love these 300's, I'm watching
8. August at 07:50:44
Christian W Thank you. It's some months ago when I laid hand on it. The next step is BMF for the window trims.
25. August at 21:57:37
Munkyslut Blue? I was surprised........ but it looks so damn good! ;)
25. August at 22:09:07
Christian W I wanted something different than silver, red or black. I orientated me at an old box by Revell, where the 300SL was showed in blue (Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (Revell 7132, 1:24) So I took some blue. There were some people how said, that blue wasn't for the 300SL so I proofed the contrary.

At the beginning of the production Mercedes offered 10 colors *and* it was possible to order any color the customer wanted! If the costumer didn't tell the dealer any wish of the color, it came silver. At the end of the production 1 of 3 were silver painted. This is the typical picture of the 300SL the most people have in mind.

But: also at the end of the production Mercedes offered 49 different colors. 89% had "standard" colors and 11% had a special one - you can say one of a kind color. So it turned out, that there are 9 different blue unicolor and 3 metallic blue. As a sum they painted 69 SL in blue. 8 colors of the blue were painted only for one car.

15. August at 02:58:33
Christian W Thank you! I like it too.
I don't know why AMT didn't check the sitting of the wheels. If they wouldn't had done this small inner ring around the pin (which I sanded down), the wheels would fit perfect into the wheelhouse.
