"Excellent but not perfect"
frankeva (Milwaukee, WI)
I really liked this kit! Of course, I have always appreciated older models, and I am starting to understand how unappreciated this sector of the market is, with new modelers yearning for kits closer to their era. However, just because it's a 1939, doesn't mean it ain't no good! For the most part, the kit went together extremely well, and produced a great looking display model. That doesn't mean it's perfect, though. My list of nitpicks include the fact that the engine was delivered in an unfinished form. Dual carbs and NO air cleaner? I don't get how something like that could be missed; how could it even have been a design flaw? No, I personally think that by the time the designers got to the top of the engine, the beancounters at the new Revell were screaming that their budget had been spent! Other nitpicks could be considered my personal preference. For example, lettered tires just did not seem appropriate for this vehicle. Granted, I would not have had to use the letter decals, but instead, I decided to use some wide whitewalls from my parts stash. I think they look a lot better than stock blackwalls would have looked. You probably noticed that my paint job didn't turn out so hot. My experience airbrushing water-based acrylics is nominal. I really prefer synthetic lacquers, but I had nothing that would even come close to the box art. I did not realize that my choice of paints could have resulted in so much bleed! Especially after I had carefully masked off the cream for adding the metallic brown; this had been mixed from two Createx acrylics, and they had to be thinned a lot to even get them to flow through a .8mm airbrush. Unfortunately, I went a little bit crazy with the application, and any excess along the tape line easily worked its way under the tape. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.

"Good build"
GRUBS66 (Illinois)
Clean kit very little flash or warping. Went together well. very little detail on engine and under hood. Interior no door or side panels.

"A sharp looking model...but has missing accents."
CaMike0361 (Lake Forest)
First off, Revell does a good job on their tooling for nicely fitting parts and, that mold lines are few and far between. A really nice decal sheet for multiple build applications...includes white lettering for your tires, a big plus. With that said, there are a few things to be aware of: The firewall is open in the middle, so I attached a small hood scoop from my parts box to the backside to fill it in before using BMF to cover it. The rear wheels are slightly off center to the wheel and fender wells, at least on my kit. Lastly, the interior doesn't have any door panels or details. Your parts box(es) may help with that issue as well. Still a nice addition to any model collection. Enjoy!

"Could be better"
Beautiful body & it kinda slows down from there, the interior lacks detail even though the back door opens, ok engine with NO engine bay detail, including no fender liners or battery.. Overall the kit's OK but could be ALOT better with just the addition of fender liners... On the plus side , there are no fit issues... The barrels are nice though... Definately NOT a skill 4 or 5... Barely a 3...
