Quality Difference

Just a heads up to all my modeling friends on here. I received two of the same model for Christmas, and wow what a difference. Revell has gone south to a degree as well. The '68 Mustang GT 2+2 kit is the subject. Make sure you look at the box and hunt down the 2008 edition and not the 2017. The 2017 although nice looking is paper thin compared to its brother of 2008. Looks very dainty compared to the 2008 issue and you can really see the difference. I will be passing the 2017 off to someone or break it up for spare parts, but the one I will build is the 2008 release. Much sturdier model. So sad.

I guess the new owners are feeling the pinch. hopefully some constructive feedback will see them correct it before it affects their reputation.

Unfortunately already took the valuable parts out of the kit, and tossed the rest into the trash and was picked up yesterday eary a.m. It is in recycling heaven now, where it belongs !!!
