Spotlight Review

"Bad example"
Very disappointed with this kit. The box says it’s a level 2, suitable for ages 10 & up. Well, If I was a 10-year-old I would have thrown this kit in the trash and never want to build another kit again. Way too mush flash, bad fitting parts, and hard to cover the blue plastic with paint even after being primed. Not a kit that will encourage a young model builder to continue with this hobby. I am by no means an expert nor professional kit builder, however, this kit was the worst kit I have built. Glad I got it on sale because the kit is not worth the MSRP of $23.00. Not the quality kit one would expect from a large, well known company like “amt”. Makes me reconsider purchasing kits from “amt” again.

One plastic model


"Be ready to work"
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

"Should've bought the Revell Model"
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.


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