"I was actually glad when this build was over"
roblively1982 (Cantonment, Florida)
I am a big fan of Round 2, but this one missed the mark for me. I have, and always will be, a big fan of the ’55 Bel Air. This model, out of the box, looks like it would be fun and featured enough parts to make it detailed and realistic. The interior builds up perfectly, and looks just neat. The body shell is gorgeous and looks just like the 1:1. Almost everything else is oversimplified and toy-like. The engine is simple. The engine bay is simple. The hood didn’t fit well. Fit was an issue with so many areas of the car. The bumpers didn’t fit well, and cleaning the bumpers takes off a considerable amount of chrome. The front grille fit, but cleaning it removed tons of chrome on the edges. Fitment was so iffy, I didn’t bother with the dahgmar bumper nubs. Fitting the body to the bottom pan was difficult, and I actually had to install the engine after I secured the upper and lower. Seriously, I had to put the model to the side multiple times just to recover from the constant planning, plotting, figuring, tinkering and surgery required to complete it. Once built, it looks just like a ’55 and is very beautiful. I’m just not sure it was worth it.

"Disappointing"
xberet
I had to re-check the box art after opening this kit to make sure it actually said AMT. Made me a little sad. A chassis with single exhaust molded in, massive amounts of flash to trim and one of the two tire choices actually consists of the two matching larger tires for the rear and a mismatched pair for the front. Yes, two tires with actually different tread and sidewalls and a slightly different diameter. The rest of the kit is simplistic with a lot of warped parts and the aforementioned flash. The rear axle and leaf springs are cast together and the leaf springs are warped into a twist. If AMT held this forth as a Craftsman or Showroom edition I might feel a little better. To say something positive.... the stock wheel cover style wheels are nice as are the skinny whitewall tires. I almost feel guilty about this review, but in 60+ years of building model cars I've never had this negative of an opinion about an AMT product.

 
"An older kit, but still worth building."

This is a decent kit, there is some flash on the parts to clean up and the build can get a little tricky in the front suspension area, but overall the parts fitment is fair to good. The details are not as crisp as hoped for, especially the door panels, and the molded in single exhaust is a bit of a let-down. The chrome is good and the decals are colorful look very good.

 
"Really cool and fun kit. The way it used to be when I was a kid!!!!!!!"

Great kit overall. Personally I had no issues with this kit other than the normal stuff. Several great options for this kit. I was taken back to my childhood builds when I started this kit. Really fun and excellent for two tone paint. I plan on several more, and definitely recommend this kit highly for any serious model enthusiast.
