1963 Corvette Convertible C2 - wip
I have planed to have a couple of SILVER (Chevrolet) Corvette in my shelf. So I started the Project "My silver Corvette Collection"
The fact, that the C1 was a convertible, I think, I add some convertibles to the collection.
Not the minor project, but a nice addition.
A curios thing: I know, I took some pictures of the kit, the parts and the phase of gluing 😉 But I don't find the pictures. So I added the current status: the body is primered and wet sanded, the rest of the parts have the base paints and are ready for detail painting.
Go for something different - 920 Fawn Beige GM code WA2815.
Interesting model with that hard top
Sweet color! I saw this on a 1962. I'll keep that in mind for (maybe) another 1963/1967 Corvette.
Next step: paintjob and clear coat. Silver as usual by airbrush. Then the clear coat with rattle can because my harder went hard in the tin after 2 years of use. Damned. So I had to grab the rattle can. I didn't want to wait for new material.
Cool ride, Christian! The transmission housing is going to be steel (or aluminium), isn't it?
Steel or aluminum. I think I'll paint it steal.
The details painting is the next step.
The body work is done as well as the work on the interior. Because if the one piece interior it is a little disappointing to get the door panels nicely painted. There is no chance to get the chrome trim on it. So I have to live with it as it is. The C2 is ready for the final assembly.
well done so far, nice progress
I'm done with the 1963 C2 Roadster.
As a good result, I'm astonished, how good this old kit fitted. The only thing I optimized the rear bumpers (cut of all the material which had been inside the body) and replaced the exhaust tips.
Beautiful result! I think, I sholuld have to see with different colored HT (wine red, for example).
Absolutely. I'm thinking of a hardtop in this blue metallic like it is shown on the box or simply black.
Really nice build Christian. and the body's paint job; smooooth as glass - beautiful.
