Very good quality kit. A must kit for Corvette Enthusiasts.

This kit's parts are precisely molded resulting in perfect fits all the time. Excessive flashing on the parts DOES NOT exist.
I would have like to have seen this race car engine have more detail than it did. The interior is extremely well detailed, but once assembled to the body very little can be seen of it, whereas you'll have the hood off more than the body.
Take some extra time and cut out the side exhaust outlets just below the doors to finish it off. I built mine as a street version with the intent of using the center black/grey racing stripe. I started with the hood and stopped there. The open that was stamped out in the decal did not fit the opening correctly. There was too much of a clear edge showing. The instructions should have advised you of this, so that you could attend to it before soaking the decal. I ended up not using the racing stripe for that reason,
Part #30 is a driver safety net, it is way to thick, cut a piece of black plastic screen and use it instead. Make sure really spend the time to test fit the glass into the body before final assembly. I had to enlarge the dowel hole in the glass to
get the glass to fit precisely.
By the way, there is a sister kit from Revell of Germany which cost more, the only difference I could find is that the illustrations in the build instructions are in color.
