This is the rather simple 1/25 AMT 2009 Chevrolet Corvette kit.  I'm not a Corvette kind of guy, but this kit was on clearance at the local Hobby Lobby, so I decided to pick it up.  Its not a snap kit, but it had very few parts, decals represented some of the details, and screws were used to connect the chassis to the body.  It was a very quick and easy build.

This was yet another opportunity to practice my car painting skills, and it went very well.  I chose Krylon Sun Yellow for the color because there was a similar shade of yellow offered that model year and it is a very sporty color.  It really stands out.  Alclad Chrome was used to paint the light bezels, the exhaust tips, and brakes.  Aside from the custom license plate, everything was built out of the box.

Enjoy the photos.
