Granted that this was a fairly simple model to put together but that shouldn't detract from the fact that this is one fine model. The prefabbed two-tone body paint looked so good that I didn't have the heart to change it. Very high quality parts- many parts didn't require glue yet they fit like a champ! In my opinion, the weak link were the decals. (What is it about the license plate decals that need to be glued on now?) Maybe I didn't want to cover up that paint job.
