Greetings everyone.

In preparation for my 1/72 Revell Corvette build I was wondering if anyone out there knows if you can buy a self-adhesive wooden deck for the kit without having to buy the complete new release?

You can't beat real wood for a wood deck and even though I will be utilising the DJ Parkins deck set I don't think a painted PE deck looks anywhere near as good as a real wood one.

Thanks in advance

Don't know if you're into it, but maybe use balsa wood to plank your own deck...I find that looks even better than the laser cut wooden ones.

Looking forward to your build.

Hi

That is what I did. It also allows you to be less then perfect in your building ;-)

I can send pics if interested.
