Correct headlight bezels and screens for an AMT 54 Corvette.
Posted by Kenny on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 7:36 PM

Has anyone been successful creating an accurate representation of a 54 Corvette headlight bezel and screen. I am modifying an AMT kit in 1/24th scale and am a stickler for scale fidelity and photo realism. The headlights that are included with the kit are ridiculous and the PE parts offered are way too far out of scale.

If anyone out there has been down this road, please let me know how you did it. A photo would nice as well.

Thanks.

Hi Kenny! Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you with us.

If you post your question in the "Auto" section of the forums, I think you would get the help you're looking for. Someone might even have a spare set in their parts box that they would be willing to part with.

Good luck.

Kenny-when you mention PE, are you referring to this set from Model Car Garage?

I looked at the Revell instructions for the 53 Corvette and the headlight/wire covers are two seperate pieces and the wire covers appear to be PE-don't know where you would find those parts but as Jim replied, posting in the Auto section might get more views/replies.

Good luck
