Some time ago I came upon an article about converting a Grand Sport Corvette (Accurate Miniatures I think) from a Coupe to a Roadster. I have searched the Internet but cannot find the article. Can anyone help?

Hi Rich

 

About 20 years ago an outfit, Historic Racing Miniatures, produced a 1/24th hard resin transkit of the Roadster which after years of searching about 4 years ago I came across the kit on E-Bay . Fortunately I earlier obtained a decal sheet for the Penske Roadster version as was raced at Sebring, 1966. Interestingly the resin Roadster fits exactly on a chassis I built for the Carrera GS Corvette coupe.

 

Historic Racing Miniatures, 14008 Adkins Rd, Laurel, MD  20708. (301)-604-8591.  kit: HRM-201
