Corvette C7.R Upgrade kit

In the last few months Ive noticed people would mention the Revell 1/25 Corvette C7.R had a "Toyish" look and it just didn't seem right. Naturally, I wanted to understand what was going on with the shape. Right off the bat I noticed the front splitter was small on the Revell kit and one detail that was missing that takes a little bit of studying is both sides of the front nose are too flat, they are NOT aggressive looking on the model kit. The real car has a WAY more aggressive edges on the nose. As you compare the kit and my own upgrade resin nose you can see the sharper look and a more meaner look, just like the real car.

Other upgrades this resin kit will have is bigger wider side splitters with an actual exhaust pipe. Wider and taller rear wing with upgraded rear wing struts. One major upgrade is the rear defuser, which the kit doesn't have whatsoever. Then the last little helpful part is the resin camera pod because trying to paint and decal with the kit pod in place is a complete nightmare to work around.

Keep an eye out for a release date on this upgrade kit on my Classic Racing Resins Facebook page. 

If you want to go ahead I buy a 1/25 Revell Corvette C7.R kit, there are many on ebay HERE.

Most of these kits are VERY cheap and abundant. Using my affiliate link to buy the 1/25 Revell Corvette C7.R kit off ebay will give me a fee from ebay. This doesn't cost you any more but I will make a little bit from ebay for referring you to their website, you don't have to use my affiliate links but doing so is greatly appreciated and helps my business and website to bring you more resin kits and value.

iCar conversion kit?

The Apple iCar conversion fenders are now available HERE

UPDATED: 1/13/2020

The first draft resin copy has been pulled off. The first draft resin copy still needs some minor adjustments. Its very tricky to understand how the inlets in the front part of the fender go? I've been looking at reference pictures from the 1980 24 Hours of Le-Mans. I've also noticed that almost every car had a slightly different variation of this fender inlets.

Classic Racing Resins has announced that here soon there will be new resin rear fender conversion kits for the just released 1/24 NuNu Porsche 935 K3 plastic kit. The first conversion kit will be for the 1980 Dick Barbour Apple Computer car. The 1980 version of the K3 had a different fender setup compared to the 1979 Le-Mans winning K3 which is what the NuNu kit depicts. The new resin fender conversions that Classic Racing Resins will be producing will be individualized to each car, as almost every team that ran the K3 had a different setup. Indycals will be working with Classic Racing Resins to produce the decals that will be accurately fitted to the NuNu K3 kit and the resin rear fender setup. The decal sizing has already begun and will be checked and rechecked to make sure the builders experience is a good one, with peace of mind that they will indeed fit. There will be a Le-Mans version and IMSA version of decal options with some interesting decals on the sheet that have not been seen before.....

 

HobbiTime the sole suppler of the Classic Racing Resins brand will have a comprehensive set-by-step blog post on the new iCar conversion kit. There will also be a blog review post about the 1/24 NuNu Porsche 935 K3 kit in a couple days.

There will also be other versions of the fender conversion kit as well, like the 1980 Sachs K3, Different versions of the Coke K3, and there are others that are tentatively in the works too.... Also, one major unique conversion kit that is also currently in the works is, the IMSA JLP-3 full conversion. The versions being worked on for that is the John Paul's 1982 Daytona 24 hr winner and the 1982 Miller High Life version too! These conversions will be more involved with different rear fenders, tail lights, rear wing, doors, side skirts, and a few other minor details.
