"Kudos to Round 2"
Kudos to Round 2 to get me to buy a mediocre model kit because I wanted the way cool tin box! I actually don't mind too much because it helps provide funding for production of the brand new kits such as 2021 Charger and Bronco. Plus I knew about some of the issues with the kit and you get a really nice tin box! In a perfect world they would start creating new tooling for some their more popular kits such as the 69 Dodge Charger/Daytona. The kit comes with the option of building the Daytona or the Charger. I chose the Charger version because I knew from my son's experience with this kit that the Daytona option has serious fitment issues. Even so, the grill insert and the rear bumper do not fit well. With my car I removed the chrome from the bumpers and molded them into the body for a better fit. The kit has low parts count and is missing some of the normal things like a radiator hose and gas and brake pedals. It does come with three choices of intakes and three pairs of 4-barrel carburetors. It also has an extra set of rims but no tires for them and a snorkel hood scoop. It is an older kit that has been released under both the AMT and MPC in many different versions. With some patience and sanding you can build a nice looking model car. Enjoy building your version of this model!

"Nice and Nasty"
Nice tin, nasty model kit. This offering had its Daytona origins as kit MPC 731-225 from 1969. Be warned, it shows its age with a low parts count, flash, poor detail engraving, and plenty of fitment issues. Most notable are the nose cone and the wing. The nose uses fender extensions, which if used, will need to be blended into the fenders. Since I was building a stock car, I did not use them. I attached the nose using liquid cement, styrene strip to fill gaps and build up the fenders, and Tamiya putty to blend. About the wing, the left upright is .02 inch undersized and there are no locating pins. Adding styrene strip to the rear edge of the upright and blending fixed that. There is a bucket style interior with separate bucket seats and dash. The chassis plate uses metal axles to locate the rear wheels and plastic pins for the fronts. It includes a decent looking separate rear axle and exhaust assembly. There is a K member up front, but no front suspension or steering. There are 2 wheel options, but only one of the sets is usable with the included pad printed redline tires. The included gen 2 Hemi with 4 speed trans is low on parts count and requires detail painting to bring it to life. A decent looking roots blown option, as well as 1 x 4 bbl and 2 x 4 bbl manifolds are included. There are fitment issues with the stock front cover and the distributor and fan belt that attach to it. There are no radiator hoses. The small decal sheet has the tail stripe in 3 colors, license plates, and a couple of other small decals. If you love the tin, go for it, otherwise it is best to avoid unless you like a challenge. I give it one star.

"Looks like a real Daytona"
The classic Dodge Daytona. That rear wing was for racing but consumers could buy one too.
