"Great model of a late-50's classic"
Tarasdad (California City, CA)
Revell did a great job with this kit. The fit of the parts is excellent with no gaps or misalignment worth mentioning. There was a tiny bit of flash on one sprue but all the others were clean as could be. The kit detail is average for a model of this scale and price range and it would be pretty easy to superdetail the kit with a bit of time and effort. All in all one of the better car kits I've seen from Revell!

"Good starting-point."
imageArtCo (Bayonne, NJ)
I bought several of these kits so I could use my imagination to customize them. One will be stock built, eventually. The kit is well-detailed and lends itself to modifications and customizing very well. The modular sub-assmeblies allow for extra detailing. It assembles in much the way a real car would. Check out the photo gallery and you can see how I modified some of the kits into a few interesting subjects.

 
"Great Kit, but hit and miss quality of chrome tree"
michaelramp
This is a very well detailed and proportioned kit and does an excellent job of replicating the subject. Fit and finish are very good with little to nothing that is tricky about building this kit. The one thing that prevents it from getting a higher rating is of the 10 kits I have purchased (one of this kit, One NASCAR Version, and 8 of the Police versions) there is an issue with excessive flash on the chrome tree (no flash is present on the other parts trees). Most of the flash is easy to clean up and will not effect the overall appearance of your build however the flash on the bumpers is a bit of a problem which lead to me building a beat up old car with my kit. This kit has an excellent and expansive decal sheet with very well rendered details too small to paint that lay down so well that I have been if the details were painted on. On an interesting side note custom pieces from the AMT 57 Ford Fairlane will fit this kit as well with little to no modification so kit bashing would expand building options even further. I can't wait for the Wagon version later this year.

 
"Average Revell"

I was pleased for the most part with this kit. It has minimal flash as you would expect with a Revell. Most of the parts went together well. I was very pleased with the window glass. The windows always prove to be my bane when building a kit. It seems if I get enough cement to hold them, then it squashes out onto the glass and mars it, and if I use cement sparingly to avoid that, I don't get enough to hold them in the first time. These windows had enough overlap to allow more cement without jacking up the glass. I did encounter a couple of areas of disappointment with this kit. I built the drag version with the slicks on the back. The fender wells aren't wide enough to accommodate the slicks without them rubbing right up against the body, and squeezing the tops of the tires so as to make them lean in at the tops. Additionally, the exhaust pipes would not stay glued to the underside of the chassis. The tails are far enough from the underside that it creates too much spring in the pipes when you push them down to contact the chassis. These disappointments could probably be overcome by someone more creative than myself!

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
