The AMT kit is the biggest waste of plastic I have ever made the mistake of buying. It is the first kit I have ever bought that I seriously am thinking about throwing into the trash can. It is so small and out of scale, it is wierd. Nothing in the box worth saving that I can see. The new Revell kit is that screw to the chassis piece of junk. Ihe body is about 6 scale inches thick with the goofy snap in windows that everyone seems to love. The body looks good, but you would have to do a LOT of work to get it over the older chassis that does not fit the body it comes with either! This is why I have a LOT of respect for the serious NASCAR builders, they have thier work cut out for them and they always do a great job.

That is just my opinion though!

Has anyone heard about what happened with the kits that Testors & Accurate Minuratures (sic) were supposed to build? The photos that were published looked respectible.
There is more to the state north of San Francisco other than trees.

I HAVE BUILT ONE OF THESE KITS,BASICLY MODIFYED EVERY PIECE OR REPLACED IT WITH AFTER MARKET PARTS AND SCRATCH BUILDING MY OWN
PARTS,THE DECALS AREN'T THE WORST I'VE SEEN,IT TAKE MUCH MORE WORK ON THE NEW KITS TO MAKE THEM LOOK CORRECT
