Spotlight Review

 
"A tough build"
polockman (Lagro, IN)
I purchased this kit if for no other reason than to see how Thompson connected the 4 powerplants to the wheels. This kit attempts to shove a lot of pieces into a very small area with instructions that are not quite up to that task. It took a lot of sanding filing, and reshaping of parts to get the chassis together flush and straight and then it took more of the same to get the body to fit right around the exhaust pipe holes and still match up to all the other body pieces. The name Challenger for this car is appropriate because this kit will really challenge your skills at making things fit.

I have been building scale models for years. I think I have skills. This kit was HORRIBLE, I sanded mating surfaces flat, test fit, trimmed, tweeked, and still ended up throwing it away. Nothing fit, instructions were not good. I realize it is and old kit , but come on! I wonder what it was like when it was just released. If you want a challenge, build your next kit with a blindfold on! dont wast your money on this one

I build models for personal pleasure and display, using them as a foundation for artwork featuring the (boat, plane, car, etc) subject model as one might use any other model (animate or inanimate). For this model, I struggled until it was finished, then decided to just Gut it, using only the shell as a model, for art. Internal details were not adequate for my kind of artwork anyway. I thought this kit was overpriced, and wrote a scathing letter to Revell about it. I think it is helpful to have a very compelling need if you are to undertake this nerve wracking project.

 
"Unique Subject - Little Reward"

I've attempted to build this model twice. Both times I threw in the towel. The problem basic problem I ran into was poorly cast parts including the frame rails that would not align to the floor panel. A square alignment is absolutely critical to the entire build including the engine installs, axle positions and attachment of the body panels. The instructions are very poor which added to difficulties when building. I would really like to have a LSR car in my collection but sadly I won't be making a third attempt with this kit. Revell took on a complex job but failed to deliver.

Comments

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