Spotlight Review

"OK kit with different optional parts"
kshoopman (Chiefs Kingdom)
Lots of flash will need to be trimmed on this kit. Glass is rather thick and distorted. I too had a hard time getting the tail lights to fit in the rear body panel. I will say though the interior is pretty well detailed but has some very large sink marks on the floorboard(4). This Corvette won't be front and center in my display case, which could just be due to my modeling skills.

"Not a Good One"
Poor fit, lots of cutting and adjusting, and a bit simple. This kit is a challenge, but not in piece count or complexity. The instructions are not very clear, the parts have a lot of flash and do not fit well. There are a lot of options; street, drag, etc, but they are tough to get exited about when some of the options just do not work due to poor molding.

"Lots of Trimming"
Chris R. (Jacksonville, Ar)
Don't know if it was the kit I have or molding on the car. I had to do a lot of trimming/shaving where the plastic meet/overlapped on the body. The tail light did not fit into the sockets and the engine did not fit in the engine bay after you installed the wheel rod for the front tire. Overall a bad model kit (or least the kit I bought)

"Kit Full of Greatness"
I’m already a fan of the 63 Stingray, and this vintage kit didn’t disappoint. After building so many AMT kits, I realize many of them are made on vintage kit molds. Sometimes that leads to extra flashing. An experienced model builder can focus on great prep work and create a masterpiece. I’m glad these vintage molds are still around. To my surprise this vintage kit didn’t have a lot of flashing. What the kit did offer was a 3 in 1 build with three options for engines, including the extra hoods to support the desired choice. I was able to have an extra engine to build for another model or even a diorama. The extras didn’t stop there. The kit also included two sets of wheels, including a set of racing slicks for the rear. Even though there weren’t a lot of Corvette badges as decals, the detailed badges on the body were raised high enough for painting. Using dry brushing the Corvette badging on the front, sides, and rear turned out amazing. The same goes for the detailed gages and interior. I added gage decals I ordered from Hobbylinc that really brought the dash to life. This has turned out to be one of my favorite kits from AMT.


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