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.
