Product Picture

Revell has released the brand new 2015 Ford Mustang GT in its SnapTite line, coinciding with the fall introduction of the actual car to auto dealers nationwide. The kit is a fast build with 10 pieces, and comes well packed in plastic sleeves with no sprues whatsoever. All parts are wrapped in plastic, are crisply molded and look to be very accurate.

This was a 15-20 minute build by my nephew, age 11, who also took the attached pictures. The comments that follow are his own. Overall, he gave the kit 4 out of 5 stars. It was a fast build and easy. The body seemed accurate, and the yellow color was cool. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The interior (consisting of fully appointed black interior with steering wheel) was realistic. It didn't matter that there was no engine, but he thought that an exhaust system and stickers/decals would have added more realism. The flat bottom was a weakness.

He built the kit following the step by step instructions, after the advice of his uncle. I did nothing else, this is an actual snap kit that a kid really can build from start to finish. Plus he took all the photos except for those of him doing the various sub assemblies. Personally, I thought the body very well done capturing the subtle angles with very crisp molding. The tires are vinyl and the wheels are well done. The interior bucket looked accurate as well. Bravo Revell for an accurate, and very easy kid friendly build !

Thanks to Revell, IPMS, and nephew Andy for providing this build !!
