Chevrolet Corvette L88 Filipinetti #3 Maglioli,Greder 1968 Le Mans 1968 (Carousel1)

this is my new car

it is a chevrolet l88 of CAROUSEL1

The exterior paint is very good and the decals perfect the rims and tires also are well reproduced the car has disc brakes are fixed his claws though not rotate with the wheel

the engine is very detailed but is simple enough but no great detail meets or

the interior is simple and is somewhat plastic,plastic seats are seat belts and one of them being part of the seat are embossed and painted blue

now the pictures

Driving an automatic and thinking you're a skilled driver is like playing Guitar Hero and thinking you can play guitar.

Serious collectors don't buy budget models? Hahahaha...that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard

I agree with you about the inaccuracies:

But the significant one's are pretty easily corrected:

And once you remove the front spoiler, you can put it on one of the streeters:

All in all, a really nice replica.

I had driven this car in 1973 while living in Germany. The car at that time belonged to Ecure' Leo'pard...Jean-Claude Aubriet  "Depnic" the car was painted "medium" metalic  blue and orange ...real ugly I might add !!!!  But I have pics from 1969  LeMans when I first met Henri Greder , when he driving for Scuderia Filipinetti.  There is alot people dont know about this car but  I think you have done the car justice from the original version from Caraousel!!! Nice job !!   Best regards  Frank
