"Should've bought the Revell Model"
ratfink454
I originally bought this kit as I wanted a 57 Chevy hotrod in my model collection. This kit may work if you're looking to build a box stock model. I wanted to put custom V-8 with headers in it but there wasn't enough room. Also, the engine that comes with it is just a basic 283 with dual carbs. There's not even an option for the mechanical fuel injection. There's also waaaay to much flash. I constantly had to trim parts to make them fit as well as sand the chrome pieces to get them to stay in place. I was rather disappointed with this kit as I couldn't really build the model I wanted using it. Most of the time AMT was good about offering other options for the engine as well as tire and wheel combos. This kit is only good if you're looking at building the model on the box. Which most of aren't we want options.

"Fun 57 Chevy build"
anthonyswaney
This Chevy was a fun build. the only con is that the rear end is cheaply made, I had it fall apart on me once but was able to fix it. For the price of this it makes a nice addition to any collection. To make it look real it will take some time to paint all the body molding but its well worth it. You can also lower the front for a modified look. I went with the stock. There is some flashing to be cut off but not bad. This is a good model for pros or biginners

 
"Waste of money and time!"
heroncustom
Don't waste your time or money. I bought this kit as a quick build. No such luck iv been working on it for a year now. Instructions are utterly horrible Many pieces need to be reinforced or replaced due to either being to thin or inaccurate fitting. Flash galore, tooling shows massive wear( why release garbage?! Fix the tooling first!. Nothing fits together like it should i ended up going with a custom look, molding the front and rear bumpers too the body and adding lots of putty. All in all this kit is trash not even good for parts in my books.

 
"Not for beginners"
soldwischb
Would not recommend to a newby. If experienced and up for a challenge this model is for you. Every part was covered in flashing. Spent more time sanding then anything so far. parts are missing holes for next part to connect.the chrome peices by the time you sand it to look somewhat decent theres no more chrome left.also headlights seem like they both fit one side almost perfect but other side no way and plus dont even match up with body so that creates a problem if want stock look. Absolutely horrible model. I contacted amt weeks ago about quality and still havent gotten back to me.
