AMT 25 T Double kit review with pics
Posted 19 March 2010 - 10:29 AM
The chopped coupe body is back. And there is both clear and red tinted "glass" for it. Also a set of beautifully chromed wheel covers and chromed steel wheels. The interior for the roadster has been retooled to tuck and roll rather than the square pleats of the last few issues.
Also included are a pair of the sweet, pad-printed, narrow white wall slicks and 4 medium white wall tires. A really well done decal sheet is in there too, as well as the standard "mini-box" and "Kat from AMT" sticker that have become the norm from the new AMT.
I will be getting more of these, without a doubt. Now I'm just torn on which way to build it first, but as you can see by the pic I've kinda made my choice

doesnt this come in a tin also? if so, does the tin version include stuff (presumably) not in the box version, like the double dragster? or is the only difference that it is in a fancy tin box?
No, there is only one version of this kit, unlike the Double Dragster kit. The Double T kit was supposed to include a tin display base, but I looked at the Round2 page and the tin display base is no longer mentioned.

The Original issue of this kit had both the tuck & roll interior (custom/rod)& the diamond pleats, that was what the stock T's had for an interior, so if the tuck-n-roll is the only interior offered, you can no longer build a "stock" version.

Yes,there ARE enough parts in the double kit to build 2 complete cars-one stock,one hot rod.
I'm not a hot rod guy, and have never had the AMT T kits in any form. I know there's not enough in this kit to build 2 complete cars. However, I have the old AMT Parts Pack reissue with the "hot rod frame" in it.
Could you build 2 complete cars if you add that frame to what's in this box? Thanks in advance.

My understanding from the original iHobby announcement of this kit was that the original, hard plastic wheel/tire combo's would be back in the kit. Are they?

I'm just say'n....
Art, the stock wheels are there but have vinyl/rubber tires that slip on. They are not cast together.

But, will it work with the AMT kit? Jimmy's Web site says it uses the Revell T-bucket rat rod (ex-Roth Tweedy Pie) as a donor.
I have both here and looks like it will. Not sure why Jimmy's web site suggested the Revell kit unless that was the only available kit it would fit. Not much use to sell a resin body and suggest only "unobtanable" kits as a doner for parts!
