"Not pleased"
wtmertz
This was a difficult kit in my opinion. First of all, I did not understand the kit being molded in a light green color. This made painting of the parts far more difficult and required many coats to cover up the green color. Also all of the parts did not fit correctly and required a lot of trimming and sanding. I am not sure if I just got a bad kit or if this is standard for all AMT kits. I am not ready for another AMT kit anytime soon.

"1968 Shelby GT500"

A couple reviews mentioned lots of flash and poor mold quality, this is absolutely correct. I had to cut and re-glue the rear axle leaf spring to get it to fit properly. I also had to do a lot of sanding and test fitting before paint. The front grill and bumper piece had to be really worked to get a proper fit. This is important because it is such a key element to this car. There are few extra parts, I would recommend the stock option. If you get the paint right it's not a bad finished model, just not a great finished model. I can't not recommend it, because it is such a classic car. Just not one of AMT's better models.

 
"Almost Perfect"

AMT did a solid job with this vintage kit. The kit includes different engine options and a precut outline under the hood for the Shelby engine. I discovered the outline too late in the build and had already painted the hood. What the kit lacked in decals it made up for it in details. I decided to add my own gages that were ordered from Hobbylinc, and I was pleasantly surprised by the raised wood grain on the dash. The kit also featured raised lettering for the exterior badges. I wished the badging was a little more raised. I also added aftermarket rims, but the rims in the kit were perfectly fine. Everything was going perfect until I got to the rear end assembly. The rear lights barely had enough exterior clips to glue it to the rear end. I did make the mistake of trying to add the bottom fender and bumper too fast, after gluing the rear lights on. I suggest gluing the rear lights on and allowing at least 24 hours for the glue to cure, before attempting to glue the bottom fender and bumper on. I really enjoyed building this kit.

New cast of old mold. A lot of flash to be trimmed and Every part needs work to make fit properly. A kit more suited for beginners or to add this specific car to a collection. An experienced modeler can make this into a nice build. If AMT ever retools this kit and upgrades it, I would build it again, otherwise I recommend this kit only to beginners.

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