I have always loved the Grand Sport Corvette. Although this one is slightly different its still a great car. The kit itself is very easy to assemble, the directions are very straightforward, there are no trick assembly parts or funny diagrams. the parts are molded in white, with the exception of the chrome parts. there is plenty of potential for this model. I have three of them all with different wheel and body color schemes. this is definitely a nice kit and there is always fun in assembling it again. who knows tomorrow I may have another color idea in mind.
