"Fast easy build"

Nothing very flashy or fancy to this one. That being said,it is a very clean kit with no fitment issues. Makes for a very nice period correct stock version.

"Good Kit"
aj4grade
This kit is wonderful. The build is straightforward and is easy to put together. This kit goes together and is a great challenge for any model builder. The instructions could use a bit more detail. Otherwise, this is a great kit that builds into a great classic.

"1951 Chevy Bel Air – Stock"

I purchased this car partially on a whim, but also to serve as good practice in preparation for another car model I purchased to assemble as a birthday present for my wife. The following OBSERVATIONS should be taken in the following context: (1) that I am not an experienced model builder and make no pretence toward being expert at it, and (2) that this is only the second car model I have ever completed. OBSERVATIONS: (1) The parts in general were very well-made with little flash to address. With a couple notable exceptions, I had little or no trouble with taking parts off the sprues and assembling them together. (2) Painting with enamel paint and brush was pretty straightforward… until you have to put some of the painted parts together. I learned the hard way to be careful not to paint – or at least find some way to carefully scrape the paint off of – certain aspects of certain parts before assembly lest the assembly process gets pretty messy between the paint and glue. As a tie-in to this observation, I recommend the would-be modeler – at least the rookie, not-so-proficient sort - read and study the instructions in their entirety before starting painting and assembly as it might save him from an occasional frustration or two… or three… or more… down the road. (3) My biggest frustration with the kit was that I found several steps in the instructions to be brutally vague, particularly regarding proper placement of certain parts. Most significant to me were when dealing with the installation of the rear window, the inner fenders under the hood, and of the front and rear parts to which the bumpers would ultimately be attached to: they would come back to haunt me during the final assembly procedures involving the body. I imagine more experienced and proficient modelers would end up taking this instructions quirk in stride, but for relative rookies like me… um… FINAL ASSESSMENTS: Overall I thought it was a very good kit. If I were to attempt this kit a second time, I am sure I could complete it without most of the frustrations I endured the first time around… and in the end do a much better job. Most of the issues I had with the kit were probably a result of my inexperience. With these benefits-of-the-doubt in mind, I would rate the kit four stars out of five, perhaps even four and a half out of five if that were an option, with my biggest issue being the instructions.

Comments

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
