"If it were cheaper, it would be more of a value"
roblively1982 (Cantonment, Florida)
First off, it was molded in black and that caused less issues than I thought it would. Excellent decal sheet and the decals sat down well on the model. I built the 454 version (rather than stock) of the drag machine, and it was a lot of fun. Note: I have (not that I remember) ever seen a model with front fenders molded as separate pieces, but with care (using the hood and front grille as alignment aids) they did not cause an issue. The drag engine takes planning to get it right – the top of the ram tunnel doesn’t fit well, and requires fiddling. The interior has soft molding and the dash was too small to fit in the interior tub – and that caused big issues. Rather than the usual front, sides and back windows being molded as one unit; it was four separate pieces. They fit perfectly! Another neat aspect of the side windows - the vent, front seat and back seat windows are molded in one piece. That means you can pose the front and back seat windows by removing one, half or leaving it – making them different on each side. The bottom frame, with nicely molded-in details, was warped, requiring the old the twist and hold (and hold, and hold and hold) until I could get it to sit on four wheels. Another thing I didn’t notice until final (I mean FINAL) step of adding the back chrome accent and bumper – the floor pan (bottom) was warped, causing a gap! A person has to look hard to see it, but I know it’s there! Fun model to put together and it sure does look like a true muscle car, but the kit is showing its age. Not for beginners, but for those with patience and some skill in overcoming issues, I would recommend despite being a little overpriced. Bonus, no matter what version you choose, you will be left with an entire engine to add to the spares box!

"72 Nova SS"
dsilva (historic 66)
The Nova was Chevy's compact car until the Vega arrived in the early 70's.It was a cheaper way to get into a Muscle car then a Chevelle or other more expensive cars.I really like the way these Nova's look too,especially the 2dr.This AMT kit can be built one of two ways,stock or strip.It's a pretty easy build, I would recommend this this kit to model builders of any skill level.
