Does anyone make a kit of the newer Corvette models?

 

 

 

Put that in the title of your thread.  I wasted a click.

 

Hopefully you won'y develop carpal tunnel syndrome from that.

Both the C7 and redesigned C8 are things of beauty...but being a self-confessed 'dinosaur,' I tend to look at every new styling and think to myself:

The new vette is a beauty.  The GT40 is an all time classic.

I don't think the body style can get much flatter.

My buddy had a C6 Z06 and it was a monster track car that I was lucky enough to drive.  I can only imagine what the C8 Z06 must be like with the mid-engine and all the bells and whistles they added.

Thanks,

John

Thanks everyone,

I'll keep my eyes peeled. I just love the styling of the newer 'vettes and especially the stingrays. Every time I see one go by on the street my head snaps and I have to remind myself.."That's not a Ferrari, it's a Corvette!"

 

I do the same thing.  The new Vette is exciting and I always think its a 458 Ferrari every time I see one.  I haven't compared the performance numbers however, I do know the Ferrari is about 3x the price of the Corvette.

I'm pretty sure there will be a number of injected kits of the C8 Corvette, being that it is such a leap in overall layout and styling.  Plus it looks pretty neat.

I had read about a number of teething problems with the real car, like rain water getting into the engine bay and potential stone damage to the oil coolers behind the front air dam.  And apparently, most shops are not equipped or trained to change the tires off the high end graphite rims without damage.  Yikes.

Nevertheless, it's good to see Made in America can still mean something cool and unique.  (I had to drop "desirable" because the cars are selling 2X+ over the MSRP of $66K.)

Interesting. The first model year Corvettes ever interested me was the 1958 283 fuel injected ones. The last year that Corvettes interested me was the 1967 model year.

I must say that I've seen cars wondering what the heck is that ? To find out it's a Corvette. But they don't interest me. With that said I did see a Revell 2014 listed someplace in my internet travels but that doesn't sound late enough to cover what you're seeking. There are later model pre built diecast ones but that's all I've seen ( 2020 I believe).

I thought I saw Revell announcing a simplified "E-Z kit" of the C8 Corvette.

Tamiya did the latest Mustang and GT40, so it would be sweet if they did the Corvette.  Their next road car kit is the Gordon Murray T50.

I think Revell makes a 1/25 scale 2015.  Not sure if that's new enough.

No kits yet, but there is a 3D printed C-8 body that can be used with earlier frames.
