This project started back in September 2014 on the old AutoModeler Forum, when I started the '53 Corvette build. It was on and off the bench until late November 2020 when it was finally completed.
Work started on the '54 Corvette in mid-2019, and it joined it’s older brother on the display shelf in late February 2021.
I haven’t had a Chevy on the bench for a few months now, so it’s time to start tinkering with the '55 Corvette. This one will be the same kit as the '53 and '54, but from an older (1982) boxing.
Time to cut the 40 year old factory plastic and see what’s inside!
Hmmmm . . . . . . red plastic, and the chrome and clear sprues loose in the box!
Some work to be done here to clean up the body with those filaments of flash and heavy sprue gates.
Not sure what the dark stains are on the bonnet, perhaps from the rubber tyres.
A lovely scuff mark on the windscreen to polish out, thanks!
Crusty old instruction manual, and no decal set. This is gunna be fun!
I will start tidying up some of the parts in between working on other builds, and this kit will also need a donor V8 from another kit to lift it to 1955 spec.
Next post I will list all of the kits I have lined up for the rest of the C1 series.
