Monogram California Street 'Vette

This kit I wanted to finish off between two projects. I acquired this kit from a batch of car model kits I bought from Brent (Handiable) back in the fall of 2020. My sister did this kit when we were kids and now I've got the shot of doing it myself. I texted her last night if she remembered it and yes she did. She actually thought it was her model kit. :giggles:

Anyway, this particular Corvette is a model of Tom Daniel personal Corvette - hence Tom Daniel Design kits.


The box cover:

The finished build. I painted it using Createx Pearlized Orange. It looks pretty damn close to the real Corvette belonging to Tom Daniel.

Very cool Vette Tom! You got a great subject here.

That looks excellent. I've been looking for a rebuilder myself. I have some candy Tangerine with this kits name written all over it.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...

Thank you. I’ve been looking for the Monogram Corvette SS kit for some time now. (The yellow hatchback Vette) The others are MPC Vette Van (The brown is a poor color choice on box cover) and Streaker Vette (Great Street Machines Series)
