1/12 Scale `67 Corvette 427! (uh, yeah, another one)

Yeah, just another one of these.
Well, this is the 5th time around if I am counting correctly, and I still plan on building more. Although, this one was quite a bear. It really fought me for some reason.
Anyway, in my progress thread, the question came up if I was going to detail this to the same level as the Camaro in my sig. I can say definitely that this one is atleast on par with the Camaro. I had about 350 reference pics for this one, and tried to get all the frame markings, wiring and connectors, lettering on hoses and wires, and even nuts and bolts which I cut off of spare pieces from a Camaro kit. Again, I used period-correct inspection sticker, license plate, and window sticker printed from the real items.
Please tell me what you think!

It was fun following along on this and the results are spectacular. I can see why you will do more of these. What a beautiful model.

The paint is just duplicolor with alot of attention during the "rubbing out" process. I spent alot of time, and I mean alot of time, rubbing out the finish being careful not to rub through. There are only about 6-7 coats of clear on it this time around though.

Awesome build. Do you have any pictures of the undercarriage? Like to see some of the markings on the frame, etc.
