"RED 1974 GREMLIN X MILD DRAG VERSION"
Wayne (Reno, NV)
OK Modellers, this is obviously an old kit offered again by round 2! hurray for round 2! I really enjoyed this kit and it makes for a nice model. Now for the issues I experienced, the transmission cutout in the floor needed to be enlarged to get the automatic pan to fit. I found the model lacking a front suspension (just what kinda looks like a straight axle) also needed to shorten the metal front axle by 1/4 inch to get the front wheels under the model. the rear leaf springs make the finished model look a bit odd sitting so high in the back (hey the real car looked odd jacked up too) with the drag slicks on the model it appears the wheelbase VS. the body is incorrect. the headers provided are VERY close to the ground (careful at the speed bumps :) I ended up fabricating a complete exhaust from my parts bin. look at my pics=the rear inside wheel wells must be painted as well as the outside of the interior and top of the chassis because you can see them both on the completed model. the body was nice however if you use the louvered inserts in the rear 1/4 windows as iIdid you must trim a bit of plastic to make them fit properly. the kit has two sets of windows clear and blue, BLUE??? would've been ok if id chosen blue as a body color, would much rather have smoke colored tint. the front spoiler was a mystery and I'm not sure I installed it correctly? both bumpers are to be glued to the body and of course they were both attached to the trees on the tops of the bumpers which visibly shows up. the bucket seats were WAY out of proportion (narrow) so I used a pair from my bench stock. Please don't mistake any of this review for negativity, just the issues I experienced. this builds up into a nice model for it's age! also PLEASE fellow modellers when leaving a review lets try a bit harder than nice build lots of flash ETC. just to get points! people actually read these! Happy Modelling!

"Typical AMC"

I thought this would be a fun little kit. Gremlins are cool right? Horrible fit. Lots of flashing, poorly fitted. Pieces don't line up. Too bad. This could have been a good build. Not recommended

Nice, fun little kit. I’d be happier with mine if I didn’t get glue on the windshield. I had heard of nightmare stories with this kit. Glad to say none to be found. Get it. Build it and enjoy it. I did!!
