1/24 Accurate Miniatures Corvette Grand Sport

Accurate Miniatures is more known for their aircraft kits, but they also made excellent auto kits. This is my OOB build of their Corvette GS. The kit has a good amount of detail and a p/e fret is included for the hood louvers and body scrips. It is available in a couple versions including a convertible.

The fit of the model is good for the most part. The only trouble I had was with the fit of the spare tire and the left side pipe. Although the pipe may have been of my doing. Care needs to be taken when assembling the p/e hood louvers as they only fit together a certain way.

I installed the left rear carb after installing the body onto the chassis. It hits the brake booster if installed beforehand. The fuel filler holes in the right fender need to be filled as this car didn't have them. The car was painted with MM Metallic Blue with a gray interior.
