Top colour down, the bottom half will be deep metallic blue.

Perfect for the early 80's.

I was beginning to think this was a ghost build. The Indy Pace car was that shade of silver.

Great color. 1982 Corvette Stingray - Page 2 1705482731

Looks like you're getting a lot of painting done - a change in the weather?

This morning I painted the lower colour. I'll hand paint around the wheel arches as I though it would have been too difficult to mask it. I'd show the pictures but the image hoster seems to be playing up right now. I'll try later.

Okay, back on to this one. Another kerb/curb side model with no engine to worry about.
1982 Corvette Stingray - Page 2 00610

I put down a base of Eisen/Steel for the metals and saying as the block is orange I based it with a neutral grey.
1982 Corvette Stingray - Page 2 00711

I painted the block with a few coats of flat orange then went over with blood angel orange then drybrushed the highlights back with hobgoblin orange. There is no starter motor here so i'll raid my spares box.

Nice. Looks like they've done a better job than most with engine detail of a curbside version.

Thanking you. Finished up the exhaust system. Just the tail pipes  to go.
1982 Corvette Stingray - Page 2 01311

Now, looking at the interior it seems that they have provided a 1969 version and not an 80's. There is no decals for the instruments so it's paint brush time. I tried painting the numbers on in white but my skills aren't good enough so I went and painted the dials white and scratched out the numbers in black. A little bit of red paint used for the needle. While the dash is from the 60's, I'll try and give it that 80's paint job.
