This baby was delivered an hour ago - my first model of the year and my first Corvette C5-R. I'm really impressed with the work that AUTOart did on this one.


(768 x 576, 238K)

Hopefully when I get some free time, I'll write a review on this model. :cheers

WTG Darren. That's a great way to start the C5R collection. As you add many more :lol , you'll see how much re-tooling went into this one by AUTOart. It wasn't just a different colour on an old mould. The engine and interior are vastly changed and alot of other fine details.

A great piece and congrats! :cheers

Congrats Darren on the first model of 2005. You sure picked yourself a fine car to start the year off with. After I had seen ACTION's version of this car, I am very glad AUTOart did eventually release their rendition of it. It is so much better in finish and details! When you have a chance to take a break from your schoolwork, I hope you can write up a review of this. I'd try to review it myself but I just don't have the same 'gift' that you do in writing them up. :cheers

First model of the year? Man... Talk about self control. :nicejob I need to learn how to do that. :happy

Congrats on such a beautiful piece. AUTOart sure did a great job with this one. Instead of just another paintjob, they went the extra mile. :nicejob :cheers

Thanks, guys. :cheers
To answer your question, Darrick, I'm definitely thinking about adding more C5-Rs to my collection now. I'm pretty fond of the C5-R that won the GTS class at the Texas race in the ALMS back in 2000.
Souky, it wasn't really mental discipline that put me off buying a model for so long, it was a matter of practicality. :giggle I couldn't spend much on diecasts because I'm paying off a laptop that I bought recently (Toshiba Satellite Pro A60) to help with my schoolwork. After my last payment (next month), my diecast spending will go back to normal. :giggle

Nice One Darren.

If I collected racers, I would go mad for these C5-Rs. I wish AUTOart would release some non-liveried versions, kind of like Minichamps have done with the M3 GTRs.

:cheers
