"Gotta have the Bandit Firebird!"
Shooter (Pennsylvania)
Must have. Very detailed and fun to build. Lots of trim decals that can be challenging but take your time. Well worth the time to build.

"Detailed Smokey and the Bandit Firebird kit"
This kit comes in enough pieces for you to detail if you choose. Most parts fit with no flashing. I liked that the chassis, interior and body all assemble together with 4 metal screws (similar to a die cast model). The rear wheels are attached with a metal axle and front wheels attach with metal pins. The rear leaf springs and dashboard face/bezels are fragile so don't press too hard when fitting. The top of the rear shocks were a mystery location for me since I was looking for a non-existent mounting point. The decals were most challenging for me since the gold trim was long and thin and some tore on me while I was positioning them. Spray painting black is also a challenge for me since it is hard for me to gauge the thickness of the coat due to its dark pigment. I used Testors Metallic Gold for all the necessary trim. Overall a great looking kit when completed and the black and gold paint scheme is awesome. Note that the following items are not provided in the kit: CB antenna, front state of Georgia license plate and Trans Am logo decals.

"So good"
Awesome, awesome, awesome kit! This is my favorite build yet, because Smokey and the Bandit is one of my all-time favorite movies, and this model kit is a very accurate representation of BAN1. Everything goes together very nicely with this kit and comes out looking great. The build does require a bit of patience when it comes to fitting some of the body panels, but it looks great if you simply take your time. If you want to keep the theme accurate to the actual movie car, you need to de-chrome the chrome so to make the gold paint look right (pro-tip - soak the chrome plated pieces in Drano Gel for about an hour and the chrome comes right off). The only disappointment is the lack of the CB antenna...there isn't one. I'm looking for something I can use add the antenna. On the plus side of extra's, Bandit's cowboy hat is included, and looks great sitting on the passenger seat. It would be nice if this included alternate color decals (maybe Blue or Black) for those who want to build a different color themed car. There are other kits of the late 70's Firebird, but the detail on those doesn't compare with this one.

"Excellent kit with great details. Even comes with the Bandit's hat!"
This was a great kit to build. The parts fit was excellent and everything went together very well. Fair warning that the decals are pretty tricky to apply and require a lot of patience and I also recommend Micro-Set and Micro-Sol decal solution for better results. In the end they do look great even though the Trans Am scripts are not included due to licensing. It does have a lower parts count, but still builds into a very accurate(minus Trans Am script) and excellent looking replica, and as I mentioned even includes the Bandit's hat.


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