Just got this kit. And all I can say is wow! I've read this entire forum, and I understand what's wrong and what's right with kit. All in all, more looks right than wrong to me. For the most part I'm an in box builder. Adding little more than paint. And have been building this way since the mid-60s. Compared to kits offered back then, this kit is fantastic. Parts fit and look good. Details are much better that in the original kits. Things like seperate rocker panels. Decals for gauges and emblems. Show me an original '70 annual kit with this kind of detail. And I've remember lots of inacuraticies in the original annual kits. Some times from one side of car to other. Again, overall this 'cuda looks right.

Despite the inacuraticies of this or the older kits, if they look close enough I've always been happy. Growing up I got a lot of Palmer kits as gifts for Christmas and Birthdays. The flaws in the AMT, MPC, Revell, Monogram, or IMC models were nothing compared to those. Yet I build them and displayed them with my other kits. But I would never buy a Palmer kit with my own money. My point is? I love this new Revell '70 Hemi 'cuda. The body looks OK to me. The detail is much better and more accurate than I remember of old annuals kits. Body may be more correct on the original MPC kit. But I'm not 100% sure of that. I know the other small details are not as good. Yet I'd still love to own one of the originals. But, the new 'cuda is what's available now, at a price I can afford. It looks like a win-win to me.

So I assume the upcoming sox & Martin cuda will just be this kit with new decals and a few new race pieces?

The first run of the stock '70 'cuda "2 in 1" is essentially sold out from what I understand.  

 

The tooling was converted over to the Sox and Martin kit version for the next assembly plant run.   When that is done, presumably they will go back and run more of the stock kit version.

Unfortunately, I was interested in the '57 Chevy convertible, but I caught part of the Sox Cuda.

I'll still be in for a kit, the LHS around me seem to have the special edition 2n1 still on the shelves.

I had the opportunity to attend the Mid-Atlantic NNL last week and saw this beauty on one of the tables. When done correctly, it truly is an amazing kit. Is it 100% correct? Who cares?

Marcos Cruz!  I walked in to NNL East, saw that build, immediately walked into the vendor room and bought a Revell Cuda kit. it wasn't even on my radar, but when I saw that awesome build I was sold. I like the Cuda kit.
