Here's my stab at Revell's 1/25 '69 Corvette Coupe. I used Humbrol Multi-Effect Gold for the coachwork.

I don't care what anyone says, for me the only Corvette is the C3. That colour suits it very nicely.

That looks great, Ratch, especially in that Humbrol Multi-Effect paint, which I'm not familiar with - is it enamel or acrylic?

Thanks Shaun. Judging by the quick drying time I think its acrylic - the can doesn't say :???:
I was given it as a sample in 2013.

Very nice. Love the gold flake. I can't help but wonder if they've gone a bit over scale on those wheels though.
