Man! Have been working on a '76 Gremlin and '77 Pacer (part of the "Al Bundy" Collection).
The Gremlin is a beautiful kit, and both have tons of extra parts, but I have never been so down before, building. The fit problems are like nothing Ive ever seen! I mean terrible. The molding is great, no flash, but the fit! The hoods have a 2-3mm gap on both sides, the cockpit and chassis have more issues fitting the body than I thought possible!
Thank Jeebus they are both "Bundy" cars (ones that were so bad, he went and bought back his old "Dodge"), 'cause if I had to make them showroom, I would would stuff 'em back in the boxes and leave 'em.
Old MPC stuff is.....great to have, and I commend Round 2 for making them available, but..........................................
Y'all will laugh when I tell you I have the old MPC '67 GTO ready to convert to a LeMans for the NOTLD car. I heard its the poster child for space age molding, design, and fit!
OK, rant over. Much better now. Carry on.
Got a GREAT Monagram F-1 pickup, a top notch '96 Mustang (The Bundy's "Testica 2000", a FUN conversion project) and a Sirroco I hope is a modern design kit, on deck, so I have only happiness ahead of me.
