BBR’s New 1:18 Resin C7 Corvette Is On The Way

Aug 02, 2013 No Comments by

Surprise, surprise. Well, not really. We knew that a high-end resin of the new – and apparently wildly good – 2014 Corvette Stingray was in the making over in BBR’s studios, and these factory photos of a finished piece hold a lot of promise for high-end resin model collectors with pushrod V8 in their blood. The limited run piece has a sealed body, but the outer details look amazing in these snaps. Photo-etch screening, scale-correct signage, and the kind of shape and scale correctness that only resin can bring seem to be a good start for what will certainly be a run of different colors – and, if we’re very good and eat all our veggies, maybe even some comp variants as they appear. The model tags at $325.00, but there’s a good chance that special-run limited editions will fetch more. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
