"3 1/2 Stars"
rglover042@comcast.net (Camas, WA)
I have built two of these, one high boy and one channeled, and found them relatively easy to build and parts fit together well. I would have rated it higher, but Revell's method of using steel pins that have to be pressed into fragile plastic parts to mount the wheels leaves a lot to be desired. Other than that it is a straight forward build and looks good when finished.

"Revell hit it out of the park"
I love that this kit because it is so well done. It provides options for both hi boy and channeled builds with dedicated frames, suspension pieces, interior pieces, and even version specific radiator hoses. The kit features excellent big and little dirt track tires and 2 excellent sets of wheels. There are also sweet finned Buick brake drums and lake style headers. In addition, the instructions are excellent. The decals are nice, however, those from my kit had white shadows resulting from sub par registration. The parts are nicely molded; the extras will be coveted additions to your parts box. Care should be taken when removing parts from the sprues as some of them are quite delicate. I clip then off using small nippers or saw them off using a razor saw. My kit came with a broken tie rod and a broken radius rod. To ease installation of the headlights, which are difficult to handle, first install the lens. After the glue has set my tip is to apply a small piece of tape to the lens to use as a handle. This is not a quick build, nor is it for the novice builder. Despite the broken parts and decal issue, I highly recommend this kit.

"It's Back!...But Different"

Back by popular demand! This kit now contains the Small Block Chevy engine with the option of 3-2 barrel carburetors or a blower with 2-4 barrels as well as the chrome Halibrand style wheels from the '30 Ford 5 Window Coupe. It no longer includes the Nail Head Buick engine, which I sorely miss. It may be built as a Highboy or with the Z'ed frame and channeled body. With the included body mounting style, induction and wheel options, many versions of this Hot Rod can be completed. The engine alone is enough reason for me to buy multiple copies for kit-bashing in the future.

"Yes and Maybe"
I know other reviewers praised this model highly, and I like it too, with reservations. It might be that others have more skill than I do, but there were some issues. Several parts were very fragile. The windshield frame is so thin that it broke just picking it up. When I tried to push the back wheels on, the axle broke. I didn't push that hard. I had to do a patch up job on the axle and the back wheels did not come out straight. It was the best I could do. Otherwise, the kit is very enjoyable. I really like the engine detail. I went with limited decals. I like a clean look. Overall, it is worth building. Just use your gentle touch on some parts.
