"Getting Better"
This is much better than the Salvino Monte Carlo that I started earlier. First of all, this particular kit does not have the vermillion decals provided either, but at least the drawings are proportional to the actual model and therefore can be scaled if you want to go that route to make masks using a copier. I did spend some hours doing so, but in the meantime, found a set of Salvino decals for the '77 charger online, which did include the vermillion. More money but saved me a LOT of hours and headaches. Getting the kit with the vinyl stickers or a later Charger may be the way to go to avoid the pain of making masks that you have to make fit the decal pinstriping. Now, compared to the Monte Carlo, these instructions actually have color suggestions for the parts, the roll cage does not need extensive modifications, body pieces fit without large gaps etc. Still some problems like the front shocks not fitting as pictured, needing to piece some assemblies together with glue (ie no guide pins/slots, steering wheel positioned by gluing to the firewall only and one section of the instructions being out of order etc. I still wouldn't recommend this for the beginner though, just too fiddlely. I wished Salvino would retool these kits, as their next gen cars are just that, almost of Tamiya quality and the older Monogram kits they remold are also better. For the Monte review, I noted that Tamiya's TS-23 Light Blue and TS-49 Bright Red seemed to be the most poplular general recommendations on forums, but have subsequently found that this blue is slightly lighter than Salvino's blue molding and that provided by MCW. Still acceptable though. TS-49 is awrong and think that TS-36 Flourecent Red is closer, but still slightly darker than needed, as is Vallejo's Vermillion. MCW's vermillion has been the only one so far that has matched the Salvino decals.

"Great kits, Love building historical NASCAR kits."
This is a great kit. Its nice to build some of the historical cars of NASCAR. Instructions are a little confusing but for experienced builders, you shouldn't have any issues. These kits some with a lot extra parts too. The chrome is real chrome, not plating. Love these historic kits.
