I love kits like this ‘Cuda. Everything fit together very nicely with no flash at all.


The Hemi engine is a gorgeous unit to work with. Every part fit together just the way it should. You get a couple of options about the air cleaner setup. Rather than have a hole in the hood (kit provided) I chose to go with a dual 4 bbl. air cleaner.


The exhaust pipes, rear differential, and front torsion bar are separate assemblies, and fit together very well. You get a choice of stock wheels and larger diameter 5 spoke wheels and tires. I used the gorgeously detailed stock wheels and added valve stems.


The interior features a floor unit with separate side panels that are very well engraved. The separate seats and console are wonderful pieces. I added flocking to my build.


The kit features a beautifully engraved body with no flash. The stock grille, as well as a custom unit are provided in the kit. I went with the custom piece just because I liked the look. After priming the body with Duplicolor grey sandable primer, I shot a few coats of HOK solar gold basecoat followed by 3 coats of HOK bittersweet pearl. A coat of Nason 2 part urethane clear went over everything. Only a little bit of wet sanding and polishing with Novus #2 was necessary before applying a coat of The Treatment Model Car Wax. I added an antenna.

Revell needs to be complimented for producing a fantastic kit or a really fantastic car.

Thank you to IPMS for the opportunity to build and review a marvelous kit.
