this kit needs help
Posted by NewB71 on Sunday, July 07, 2019 5:53 PM

Just started working on the AMT Gene Winfield '40 Ford.Have not gone very far but deceided to check on the fit of the main body parts. The fit of the body to the fenders and the hood to the body leaves a lot to be desired. These ill fitting parts will probably show in the end.In my opinion this kit should be re tooled.

The AMT kit is much older and different from teh AMT.  The AMT kit is so old, I wouldn't be surprised that it might not fit well anymore.

The AMT '40 Ford Coupe is a very old tool.  It was my first model, I got it for Christmas in 1959.  It has had a few reipops so I would guess it may have a some fitment issues.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I assume you meant the amt kit is diffrent from the Revell kit. That's my point. The op said it should be retooled and I responded with the 40 has been by Revell, a state of the art newer tool. Wouldn't make sense for amt to since the much nicer Revell kit exists.
