Michelin Chevrolet Corvette C7

Michelin Chevrolet Corvette C7

Materials:
Kyosho Mercedes Sauber C9 unpainted autoscale
Rustoleum 2XX Heirloom White spray paint
Krylon Fusion Satin Black
Rustoleum 2XX Apple Red
Tamiya Gold Leaf
Tamiya Clear Yellow
Tamiya Flat Black
Tamiya Orange
Tamiya Flat Red
Tamiya JDSF Brocn
Model Masters Steel
Testors Flat Yellow
Future Floor Polish
Pattos Michelin Sauber C9 decals, 1/27 scale, clear vinyl in custom inverse color scheme

I adapted the C9 livery to the C7 Corvette with a bit creative license in the interpretation. I used red accents on the front and rear end to bring a bit more color into the simple color palette. I also carried over the nod to yellow marking on the rear tail light.
The white base coat, black skirting and red accents were done with spray paints and all other colors and touch-up work was done with a detail brush.

Nice to see a finished Vette already! It looks great! I am hoping for a lexan window soon. I'll be interested to hear how it drives
