The '66 Suburban is a modified tooling of Revell's '64-'66 Chevy pickup kits. The kit is nicely detailed, and complete, right down to separate lenses for all lights, interior mirror and dome, decal and "glass" for the instrument panel, and decals for the seat upholstery.
In this release of the kit, it can only be built stock, and no custom parts are included. Which was just fine for me, because I am an avid replica stock builder! I chose correct '66 Chevy truck light green and white for my model, with the correct light gold colored interior, and the correct greyish shade for the engine block.
The box model shows an incorrect (for trucks) orange engine. My kit was built box stock, EXCEPT for the chrome. The bumpers, hub caps, and grille were stripped of the kit chrome, and sprayed white to represent the lower line Suburban. Chrome was an option on these parts, so it may be built with chrome as well. I also flipped the kit supplied tires around and used the side without the white wall insert, as by '66, wide whitewalls were not offered from GM. I then used my white gel pen to paint the correct whitewalls on the kit supplied tires.
The kit comes with an array of optional and stock decals, which was a pleasant surprise. Flash free, crisply molded, clean packaging was all present here. It fit together well, and was an enjoyable build. I would recommend this kit to anyone.
Thanks to Revell for finally giving us a sixties Suburban, and thanks to IPMS for the opportunity to review it.
