My Corvette Z06 in Electron Blue by Maisto. This color was only available at Target stores and thier production numbers aren't known. It is however a great effort by Maisto considering the $16 price tag. It was released a few years ago so the detail isn't like todays Maisto(is that a bad thing though!?). They seemed to have captured the look of the 1:1 well, only the mounting posts and plastic roof seeming unrealistic.

Enjoy the photos! :cheers

That does look good for a budget price Justin. I always think that Maistos come so close to being really, really good for budget prices, but then have a few things that let them down. For instance, the really shiny 'chrome' plastic that they use everywhere. On this model for example, the exhausts just look a little crude compared to the rest of the exterior.

What are the brakes like on this - do you have a shot of them? That's the other thing that often lets them down.

I put one on eBay at the height of that craze and gor $85 for it! :dizzy

Great pics as always Justin. :cheers The exclusive color for Target was only for one year. It became available at other places a couple of years later. I found them at Sam's a couple of years later and I bought all a store had to give out as gifts. The release of the AUTOart in the same color also killed the high value of them.

Justin,

Awesome pics as usual - :cheers

I remember when these hit the shelves and the shortage was very evident.

I think I paid $45 for the one I had and watched the prices just rise from there.

:iagree Me too, only a few more weeks I suspect! :hot :hot :hot :hot :hot In yellow too, of course!

These EB 'Vette's were everywhere it seemed at one time, but now its like the hardly exist or something! Its a wonderful color for a Corvette too, a real shame Autoart never made one although I hear the LMB is really close anyway? :confused

Thank you as always for the comments everyone! :cheers :cheers
