I was happy to find this kit at a rummage sale so I picked it up with several others kits. It's a fun build ut the engine is kind of generic with no real standout features. The instructions are good but they do show the valve covers upside done but I have seen worse. The molding has some flash but it cleans up nicely with a little sandpaper. The biggest thing you need to look for is the blower drive belt. I had to shorten the crank and idler pulley mounting tabs to get it to fit right. The other thing is the instrument panel did not line up and left about 1/8 gap that I had to use a spare piece of plastic I had in my parts box and then filled in with putty. All in all it was a fun kit to assemble and this is the first reissue of this kit in a long time. I painted mine copper undercoat with candy red. Looks pretty good on the shelf. I would recommend this kit to level 2 or better modelers.
