Nigel Chapman Any plans for the Corvette?

Munkyslut Hi mate!
Yeah I'll get around to building it sometime, probably as the box art, that's what drew me to it in the first place.
I've had so much to do at my business dealing with the bat flu I've hardly had time for anything.
Sadly I just lost me mum so the funeral & probate are now taking more of my time up.
9. June, 08:54
Nigel Chapman So sorry to hear that. Take care and hope all goes well.
9. June, 13:53
Munkyslut Cheers mate, I'll be back soon ;)

Munkyslut That's awesome! Colour choice is very cool, the box orange is a bit bland yet everyone seems to copy it!
Great finish too,, spoiler is a nice touch
Any more big scale in your stash?
25. April, 13:05
MichAv Credits to my dad who build the model.
25. April, 16:19
Philip Avonds I'm the dad who built the model almost 40 years ago ;) The colour is unique and was mixed with leftovers of a metallic blue (from a full size Opel GT repaint job) with a bit of green.
25. April, 16:40
Munkyslut Hi Phillip! You did a great job, hope you passed on some of your obvious talents to the young man ;)

Pay Attention to the writing - here is added "for '74"

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 2019, 10:03
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 2019, 12:04
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.

There where two different issues in 1988. The are only different the writing on the side of the box:
One says
"ERTL Stock #6354 Replaces MPC Stock #1-3720"
[img1]

The other doesn't have such a writing. In the same Corner is the "Trademark of Chevrolet..." description.
[img2]

At least: one different to the older issue Ghost Rider (MPC 1-3720, 1:25) is the writing on the box deck:
"Over 100 parts" instead of "A Goden Oppurtunity Kit"
