This is the new Round 2 kit and i just bought it today.Thanks in advance.
I have another bad one, Round 2 MPC Monaco (Roscoe's car). Same deal as Caprice, anyone else had this happen with these two?

When I was a kid and bought an MPC kit, it usually took about two hours before frustration set in and I destroyed the kit and moved on. Now I kind of enjoy the pain, um..challenge.

...look at the picture posted. It clearly shows not only that the bracing is in place (which needs to be removed) but ALSO the cowl is bent on the driver's side.
Oh, my error again. I see my ways...wrong kit for comparison - that kit doesn't have the cowl molded in. So...hehe...I thought bottom shots were the Caprice. BTW, I looked in on one of the Caprices I have:
This is what I thought I saw above - a bent cowling preventing the hood from sitting level. Now, my point? These kits (70s annuals..) are not perfect - expect some additional work.
