"Too many errors in the instructions"
jmabry26757 (Romney,WV)
I usually build pre WWII classic car models, but they’re hard to find unless you want to pay a high price on E-Bay. I received this kit as a Christmas present, but I liked the looks of it. You have the option of either building a stock 1948 Ford convertible, or “Greased Lightning” from the movie “Grease”. I chose the latter version. The parts are excellent, with very little flash. The decals are easy to work with. I used the Micro system to apply the decals so they adhered without wrinkles. The only problem with this kit is a problem I’ve seen with Revell kits lately. The instructions are terrible. While the show some details in some areas, they are missing on have errors on some. On step 5 you have to guess where the front shocks attach to the chassis. On step 6 the painting details for the upper radiator hoses call for them to be painted flat black with aluminum details. Not only is it unclear where the colors go, but decals go in the center section, and you’ll never see them if you paint it black. The box photos show it white, so that’s what I painted them. The seat decals in step 7 show them to be rectangular, but the decals are curved in the corners on one end. I put the curved ends on the bottom, but after I applied them I saw the box are photos have the curved end on the top. In step 9 the instructions tell you to paint the body gloss white, but to paint the trim details to match the box art. I used Bare Metal foil for this step. In Step 10 it doesn’t show any painting details for the vent windows. I also used Bare Metal foil on them. Step 11 showed the rear license plate frame as chrome plated. I couldn’t find it until I looked at the other parts and found it un-plated. Finally on step 13 it calls to paint the trim on the hood chrome silver, while it didn’t call that out on the rest of the body. Overall it’s a great kit, but you have to pay a lot of attention while building it do you don’t make errors, and get disappointed with this kit.

"Why its greased lightning!"
Stanghunter
Although I didnt build the Grease version of this kit... everything is there to do so.. even decals for the ripped metal look from the final race. instruction can be a bit difficult to follow in some parts but just take your time ..study the parts .. test fit everything before you commit with glue and youll be fine. Builds up to make a fine looking 48 ...in any direction you take it

 
"Amazing Detail. Fun Build"
edrn007
Great kit. Amazing detail. Super decal sheet. Can build stock or modified or like the movie car. Not hard to build. Good kit for beginner or intermediate. Take your time with the decals as they are really large, so will come apart easily because of the large size.

 
"good kit"

this is a good remake, no flash, parts seam to be going together nicely, awesome decal sheet, nice crisp whitewalls, cons: could of done better on instructions, sits way to high, but all together a pretty good kit
