  • 1:25 scale Vintage Corvair Modified

    Using up my 1:25 stuff as fast as I can.

    Put together a brass chassis from 5/16 square tubing, 1/16 rod, WRP guide tongue, JK motor bracket,
    Jaws motor, 8 x 29 Parma gears, Parma guide & H&R foam (fish rubber) wheels/tires.
    Engine is from "Shapeways", driver figure is from "Ron Coon Resins".
    Painted with Duplicolor silver after an overnight bath in the alcohol jug.

    The Corvair body was rescued from a 35 year old "box 'o junk" I never threw away
    when I moved. I shortened the deck lid 1/2", filled some holes & lengthened the doors a bit
    from the original build & didn't do much
    else except clean-up & sand.
    Paint is Duplicolor purple & Ace Hardware brand white enamel.
    Graphics are printed on clear self-adhesive vinyl.
