    Distant Thunder... Greenman's Corvette club racer

    Here is my latest. It's a Revell Snap kit I bought a number of years ago. I made a soldered brass chassis for the car with no flexible bits to conform to my local club's rules for "Classic Sports Cars" It has a Slotit no color motor and gears. The guide is Scaleracer, wheels are from Pendles with American Racing 5 spoke inserts. The paint is Alkyd lacquers from primer to color and came from MCW in Ohio. The driver is a combination of a Munter repopped Proto body and Immense Miniatures Jack Brabham head. Most of the other bits, decals, decor and etc., either came from the Corvette kit or my bits box. Clear coat is Duplicolor. It's a strong runner and hopefully will be a contender in the race group.

    For that to happen I'll have to hire a pro driver...
