"Another disappointment from the current Revell"
frankeva (Milwaukee, WI)
I found this kit to be just as fraught with problems as the reissue Pontiac GTO. Let me say at the outset that this kit looked like a real winner during the module building stages. Everything just assembled so nicely, and according to plan. However, I held the finished chassis up so that I could look at it from the rear, and noticed that the whole assembly looked out of kilter. I decided that this would probably correct itself with the body being able to hold the chassis in alignment. (flawed assumption) Again, the windshield's visors had to be cut off because they had been designed with a flawed angle that prevented it from holding its position inside the body. Once this was glued in place, I saw again, a big gap between the windshield and the dashboard. The dashboard was just too tall - it was a really tight fit up against the windshield, so tight that it broke the glue line at the roof. Struggling to continue toward completion, the assembly became a very discouraging fail. While trying to figure out what was preventing assembly, which was already so tight, there was just no room for adjustments, I inadvertently put too much pressure on the roof, and caused the front A pillars to buckle. Well, that proved to be the proverbial straw that broke the camel's (or should I say Torino's) back. I have my doubts that negative reviews will make any difference to the current Revell. After all, they had someone build this kit and he/she said it was just fine. Well, the builder could have been a pro, and who really knows how many kits he/she blew through in a final push to actually complete one that was worthy of being photographed. The long and the short of it is that if you're not a professional model builder, you may want to pass this one up. In fact, you might just as well go ahead and buy older kits, because they won't fit any worse than the reissues!

"70 Torino Cobra"
Have an original release, same good quality. Also have some Torino GT kits. They have some extra pieces, some of which in my opinion should be included in the Cobra kit. Front spoiler and the tube headers. Maybe the Cragar wheels too? Anyway still a good kit of a great muscle car.
