1/16 78 Vette

Rebuilt from a built up Ebay special that I bought about 3 years ago.
It's the Anniversay AMT kit apparently with opening hood (yup) and doors (Really?). Thats what it says on the box anyway. Not to fussed whether the doors open or not, it's still a pretty kit, with proper springs on the front so you can squish it up and down on  a boring rainy Sunday. 
I recieved it painted and built up in the anniversay colours, but I think the person had laquered over the grey decals as they were going wrinkly and yellow round the edges, and the silver was turing an odd shade of green gold in places. So a full strip down and rebuild was needed.
