"I wish I had not spent the money..."
frankeva (Milwaukee, WI)
I can't agree with some of the positive reviews out there. There are so many things wrong with this kit, I could not even recommend it as a first build. At $26.99, you might just as well spend a few dollars more and get a truly worthwhile first kit. Cons #1 design-this is supposed to be a hemi under glass, but if you install it where it matches up with its surroundings, it will be a hemi under rooftop! This accounts for the bumpout in the firewall behind the driver. If this is where the engine is supposed to be installed, it will wind up so far forward that it will only be visible through the glass at a very oblique angle! #2 cost savings-AMT must have had to pay a huge licensing fee to get them to make such drastic changes to the kit. There is very little detail in the chassis and the interior. I've seen other drag kits that at least offer some minor detailing in the interior, and perhaps even a fully detailed one-piece chassis, as well. So, by now, the investment has been paid off and AMT is still especting hobbyists to fund their operation, so that they can keep the junk rolling out the door. #3 glass-I've come to expect excellent performance from a one-piece glass installation. The pieces that are molded to attach the windshield to the backglass can easily be glued to the roof, and you're done. Not so in this kit! If you expect this, you can also expect big gaps around the perimeter where the glass simply sags. It should be glued in place all around to make sure this sag does not occur. #4 engine detail-or the lack thereof. With this kit purportedly using a hemi as a main feature, you wonder why the thing is so sparse on the detail. Errors in the mold for installing the chrome valve covers has you installing one of them backwards! Well, is this just another error that AMT felt could not be addressed without compromising their profit? It would seem so! Pros #1... I can't think of any! Oh well, the box is nice and sturdy!

"Basic kit"

Very basic kit ,not too many parts,very simple kit open for xtra detail that can be a challenge

 
"Something a little different"
kshoopman (Chiefs Kingdom)
Not a bad kit with just a small amount of flash for an older kit. When mounting your front leaf springs you might try them both directions and check which way best centers tire in wheel well. A couple of grips are the plastic tires, rubber would have been nice. Also the original cast puts the engine and drivers compartment to far forward, the engine is not under glass as is the 1:1 car. Mine will be the gold and black one in the image gallery!

 
"Memory lane!!"

I remember watching the wheel standers at the track with my dad. What a fantastic memory! Kit is really sharp and nicely molded, little to no flash if you care about that stuff. I really like the two piece tires and the decal sheet great. I would highly recommend this Plymouth wheel stander. Will upload pics soon.
