"Should've bought the Revell Model"
ratfink454
I originally bought this kit as I wanted a 57 Chevy hotrod in my model collection. This kit may work if you're looking to build a box stock model. I wanted to put custom V-8 with headers in it but there wasn't enough room. Also, the engine that comes with it is just a basic 283 with dual carbs. There's not even an option for the mechanical fuel injection. There's also waaaay to much flash. I constantly had to trim parts to make them fit as well as sand the chrome pieces to get them to stay in place. I was rather disappointed with this kit as I couldn't really build the model I wanted using it. Most of the time AMT was good about offering other options for the engine as well as tire and wheel combos. This kit is only good if you're looking at building the model on the box. Which most of aren't we want options.

"Be ready to work"
HEAVY_D64
I bought this kit awhile ago for a weekend project - boy was I wrong. First the flash was heavy just about everywhere. I had 2 sink holes that needed to be filled and sanded. The detail was good but not as crisp as I would have liked. The instructions were terrible and mine had a smudge the made some steps unreadable. I had trouble with the rear axle to the point that I just used one from my spare parts box. What started out as a weekend project turned into 5 months and a whole lot of sanding. I painted it silver to hide the imperfections and did the interior in black. I would only recommend this kit to advanced builders or look for a better kit.

 
"Bad 57"

This is one of the Worst Kits That I Have Built Lots of Flash To Trim.Cheaply Made if You Have Parts From Other Models You Can Make a Pretty Nice Build. I made a Gasser Out Of MIne Had Spare Straight Axle and Slicks and A Blown 426 Hemi Engine Didnt Care if i messed it up or not But it Worked out Great

 
"57 bel air"

I love this kit this kit is a lot of fun to build I love old cars so this is great for my collection this kit has a lot of cool ways you can customize it I want to add another one to my stash as this one looks so good PROS: cheap, fun to build, looks good, highly detailed, features a nice engine CONS: minor flash if you are thinking of picking up this kit then get it, it is a great kit for any old car collector and you will have many ways you can build this if I was going to give it a rating I would give it 10 out of 10 stars I am using this kit for a diorama I have about the first ever car show I went to my mom took a lot of pictures of the cars there so I build cars based on what was at the show and the beginning of my car addiction!
