1997 Corvette Coupe C5 - wip

The next kit for my Corvette Collection. I like the C5 a lot. Not only because I'm a big fan of Pop up Lights. I like the front view. It is very nice formed.

I bought this kit already started on ebay. This is what I got.

Today was paint day. I took the chassis of 2 C5 and 1 C7 to do some detailling. On the right this C5

And I painted the body. I hate red plastics. It's still coming through the base color. A little, but it can be seen. The risk is high that the red plastic will come through after the clear cote like it was on the C2....

It's painted 🙂.

Clear coat. It's not perfect. Two or three spots on the body and some on the hood. But

On the first look, the red plastic doesn't come thru the paint. Exciting.

A little process on the C5.

Detail work on the body

The interior. Sadly I have no decals. They weren't with the started kit. So it's not that spectacular

The chassis is done.

Painted the frames of the windows

Here she is: the 5th generation. I'm not satisfied with the hood. I will redo it again
