Its a revell big John 1941 willys gasser kit. I built it box stock. I like that it includes a photo etched grill. the chassis and interior is pretty simple I didn't like the way the hood clips work you have to bend the sides of the hood together so the clips clear the body so I cut them off and let gravety Hold it on the decals went on good my only problem was that I tore the valve cover decals because i didn’t use enough setting solution the instructions are easy to fallow And the tooling is Good quality almost no flash and some mold lines but nothing a few swipes of a sanding stick cant handle pros: cool livery, better quality then the old revell Willy’s with the opening doors and trunk, good instructions, detailed engine, good Candidat for extra detailing, cons: simple interior and chassis, interior floor and chassis pan are one unit, the clips that hold the hood to the body over all I enjoyd building this and I would highly recommen it

Nice job on that Big John Willys as I have met him a couple of times and have seen his recreation of one of his Willys also. I was lucky enough to get his autograph before he passed on. May he R.I.P.

High octane did the recreation of his willys have a passenger seat because I forgot to mention that the only part I used that wasn’t in the kit was A seat because I read online that to be able to race car the class it ran in it needed second one
