Okay, just for fun, I decided to throw together the new 2014 Corvette Stingray snap kit from Revell

Parts breakdown.
I was pleasantly surprised that the 'chrome' sprue wasn't the normal model-style chrome

Went ahead and assembled the parts to the body so I could paint them as a whole.
To remove some of the toy-like feel to the kit, I primered both the inside and outside in flat black

The interior was assembled mostly stock.
To add some detail, I added a small screen print of the GPS/stereo screen. I also drybrushed the instrument cluster in silver

The body was given a base coat of gold, followed by a coat of clear gloss to aid in masking later

I masked off the lower section of the body, then gave the upper section a coat of candy red.
The grilles and intakes were given a black wash for detail
The insignia on the car were picked out with silver, using a very fine brush.
The frames on the taillights were painted in with black, while the mirror 'glass' was painted in with silver.
The frosted framing on the glass was painted in with black by hand.
Lastly, the exhaust pipes were painted in with gunmetal and the decal was placed for the license plate

Finished build pics

That looks really nice. Might have to look into doing a SnapTite kit in the future.

Thanks, guys
And Scott, I may look into getting that one. I'd likely repaint the body, though

I built the orange Challenger in the same series. No uber model kit, but decent enough. Little bit of detail painting and they clean up rather well.

Filmed in " SUPERMARIONATION " !!

No way

That does sound rather odd now, doesn't it? The "mario" is shortened "marionette."

I think I need to watch some of that. Never heard of it!

I usually only buy Snaptites to steal parts from, but I may have to actually build one now.

I've had my eye on a Mack fire truck...but it being a snaptite has repelled me like mosquitos from citronella. It has serious potential for detail.
