[MOC] 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray in Scale 1:20

Recommended Posts

This is my take on the new C8 Corvette which was released recently. It is the first mid-engined Corvette and is going to retail for less than $60k in the US. With the performance numbers it is putting out, it might become one of the greatest disruptions we have seen in recent times.

Characteristic for this model are the side scoops which you can option with contrasting colors (I have had a lot of fun with the online configurator), the mid-engined proportions and hard angles, such as at the engine cover, rear wing, nose and headlights.

The most challenging part of the model was to get the nose and headlights right. This is how I started out:

The headlights on the real car have LEG strips on the sides, but I was simply unable to fit them into the space available.

The nose was also a bit too tall and I wanted to include the winglets in the side intakes. It took me a day, but I was able to make the updates to the front:

Other changes from this version to the one you see in the top include new side intakes, updated windscreen and other minor improvements.

 

Now. Would you like to see a fake engine and transparent engine cover?

Looks great! The shaping of the front and back looks very accurate to the real one! An engine inside would be cool!

Although not a fan of black pieces to represent windows, I have to say the shaping is beautiful, great model!! and well done, personally I prefer absence of pieces (windows) and just the pillars being represented, not sure if the windows here are structural or could be done that way? look forward to more MOC from you as always

Thanks for the feedback. I am thinking of how I can show a Targa version with the interior visible. This will require a different approach to the windscreen.

But first. The engine:

The middle section had to be rebuilt to make way for the engine. The changes have primarily been on the rear window surrounds, where it works best with the section built upside-down. Unfortunately this is a goodbye to the grilles, but square holes are also fairly true to the original A new detail has also been added to the top with the rear view camera.

Thanks. You are not the only one to make that comment, and I will try to make the windscreen on the convertible transparent as it does not need side windows.

I have now made a video of the model showing how it is constructed. The building instructions introduce a new feature: Choose your own color. And unlike on other websites, the color change here is free :)

Wow! I actually like the black windows. I think they look cool. Thank you very much for the video and the instructions. I’m normally more interested in Technic building, but am very curious to learn how you achieve these amazing curves and lines.
