1968 introduced the third generation Corvette and one of the Boyz favorites styles.

Boyz are building this 1978 Revell 1/32 version.

Boyz need to size down the Pioneer chassis to fit this build now!

The Boyz had to work very hard to keep this a simple looking build!!

Exceptionally fast with its Pioneer power and chassis.

Da Boyz always impress me. Lots of nice builds from that shop.
Wondered about the cowling vs blower, I see they chose the open hood initially. Pretty nice street look!

The Boyz can't help themselves, and added a removable matte artist tape stripe.

Hmmm, any thoughts...............

That's a stunner with or without the hood scoop but the black line makes it look too cluttered. It reminds me of the days they used to put rubber strips along the sides of cars to act as door bump stops in public car parks.

Nice build once again Denny! Where are you finding the Pioneer chassis if you don't mind me asking?
