"Nice"
ruzguz
This kit does require patience. There was a lot of flash especially on the chrome tree, I know this kit has been around the block a few times and flash is to be expected. The roll bar takes a bit of finesse to get it to fit correctly, other than that the interior go together quite nicely. The tail light panel and rear bumper took some time to get it to look right. The end result was a pretty good looking Charger. I would build it again.

"Pretty average"
psycrowrebel (Texas)
This was a pretty fun kit to build, however it is pretty basic. There was quite a bit of flash which required more than normal prep work. There are also a few areas and parts that had some fit issues so I wouldn't suggest this for beginners. I personally don't care for kits to be molded in color and this one is molded in black. Overall it isn't a bad kit but there are better options out there for the Charger.

 
"Dukes of Hazzard?"

Don't quote me on this but in comparing this kit with pictures of MPC's 1/25 scale Dukes of Hazzard kits on eBay, the parts look identical and includes the same wheels, roll cage and push bar for the front bumper. Main difference is that this one is molded in black not orange and does not include the General Lee decals of course. What prompted me to buy this was the discovery of a set of Gofer Racing Model Decals called Bubba's Favorites offered by Hobby Linc. This set includes the numbers, flags (for license plates and roof), General and Lee decals (separate decals, not a single piece General Lee). Additionally, the kit includes numbers from 0 to 9 which are close enough, and General Grant, Patton, General Washington and Born free decals, from which one could piece together General Lee. One would just somehow paint or reproduce the Confederate flag. Lot of work perhaps but saves a little on the $$$$. The kit decals also include the Grand Union Flag, Betsy Ross Flag, 35 star, 48 star and 50 star US roof flags, along with instrument decals and a couple of license plate. These seem to be of good quality, which nice gloss. As for the kit itself, I agree with what others have said being a simple one. However, it does include engine, so felt it was a good value for the price I paid for it.

 
"Not the best Charger kit, but still good"

Shares the same architecture as the MPC Daytona I'm currently building alongside it, and as such I will be using some of the optional parts (supercharger and hood scoop) from the Daytona kit on this one. Molded in black, which could be great or terrible, whichever you prefer. I haven't quite made up my mind yet. There is a LOT of flash, another feature it shares with the Daytona, so be prepared to spend plenty of time on cleanup. Not necessarily a problem, but could be one for less experienced modelers. The shape seems juuust a little off in some places (namely the iconic flying buttresses that seem a little short), and some details are a bit iffy, but it looks generally like a Charger so I can't complain too much. The greatest problem detail-wise is the front wheel wells/inner fenders that are molded into the chassis as a sorta rectangular blob with terrible seam lines. The chassis is just full of seams and injector pins in total. The firewall is also a separate piece, and it doesn't really seem to want to fit all that right during mock ups, sandwiching somehow between the chassis and interior tub. Comes with many parts from General Lee kits, such as the push bar, roll cage, and Vector wheels, but more patriotic decals instead (various American flags and General Grant, George Washington, Born Free,etc. name scripts). I will be using the optional Torque Thrust wheels instead. Tires do not have any raised letters, only a line for red-lines, so I'll be using different tires (is it really a street machine without white letters?). Overall, its far from the best 69 Charger kit on the market, but it comes with plenty of options and fantastic decals. Should build up pretty nice with a little hard work.
