"Fun 57 Chevy build"
This Chevy was a fun build. the only con is that the rear end is cheaply made, I had it fall apart on me once but was able to fix it. For the price of this it makes a nice addition to any collection. To make it look real it will take some time to paint all the body molding but its well worth it. You can also lower the front for a modified look. I went with the stock. There is some flashing to be cut off but not bad. This is a good model for pros or biginners

"Disappointed with this kit"
no.1silverback (Mesa Az)
For a very basic, average kit this had way above average problems. Fit,flash,instructions, all will test your patience and frustrate you. Would have been better off just getting a bunch of parts out of my parts boxes and building something with them,at least there would be a reason for such bad fit issues.

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!

"Not good, but not all that bad"

Overall, it's a complete kit, simple engine, simple front & rear suspension, exhaust modeled to bottom. There's some nice trim detail. The kit contains parts for a stock 1957 Chevy Bel Air, no custom options. On its own merits, it's a kit I would've probably like when I was a kid in the '60s...something I could slap together. However, there are better alternatives of representing the real thing. Build wise; this model required a lot of sanding, some filling — lots of flash and heavy mold lines. Fortunately, the plastic is, in general, quick thick and can take a lot of filing and sands. The body has several issues. There's an unexplained rectangular hole in the middle of the firewall (which is a molded part of the body). And a visible verticle crease/dent in the rear fin fender panel (driver's side). Removing molding lines in the area of the trim required care. The interior was an assembled box with door and side panels, the rear bench seat, the floor, and mocked up pedals. The dash is a separate piece. There's not a lot of depth to the gauges, handles, trim and other detail, some of which can get easily lost in a couple of coats of paint. I could go on; tires don't fit on hubs, suspension systems are oversimplified. The heater doesn't fit properly. Instructions are less than adequate. The decal sheet has only one trim item (aluminum trim in fin quarter panel), no gauges, no logos, no placards. Truth is, I bought this kit as something I could practice my modeling skills. And it has not disappointed. I owned a beat-up '57 Chev as a kid. As bad as it was (...gas filler tube dangling in the air of a rusted out fin), I fondly remember the shiny, THIN, horn ring. I looked so cool. On this model, the horn ring is larger than the steering wheel. Was it fun to build? Was I happy with the finished product? Yes, but from the perspective of practicing skills. I gave this review a below average rating because it falls below the standards of other examples (Monogram, Revell). Can this be a trophy car? Yes, with a lot of work.
