I just picked up amts release of their Opel kit. This one is molded in white. I especially like the tires. It has tampo printed slicks, tampo printed polyglass tires and what looks like four stock style tires. Three sets of wheels. And i especially like the aluminum air stacks. I dont remember the drag parts when i built this a long time ago. What is with the single chrome reverse wheel? I will definitely need to pick up another one of these.
AMT OPEL GT RERELEASE.

Ok here are a few pictures. This is of the tires. Two slicks, four polyglass tires, and 4 stock type tires. Also a picture of the turned aluminum stacks and metal axles.

Wow, those L60s are going to look HUGE on this car. I was surprised how tiny and compact these cars are after seeing one up close a few years ago, but they do have some nice lines.

This looks like a fun kit. Im going to wait for the yellow edition now. I would buy this just for the tires and wheels. Lots of extra goodies. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the review. The yellow version is out now, the white and yellow came out at the same time.

Joe, if you are not going to build it, PM me, maybe we can work something out.

after hearing about this reissue i went back and looked at my older version...yeah what is up with that one chrome reverse rim? but this new one i will get just for those stacks i think. cant get over that box art though...no one, and i mean no one, would build a car like that. it looks ridiculous! not only that, the art work makes it look like it is camaro size which anyone who has ever seen one knows is way off. but a nice motorsport version will look great, too bad they didnt include some SCCA style parts for the more reality based builder. that buick v6 is very nice too though totally inappropriate for this car. what were those guys at AMT smoking? whatever it was, i want some. anyway its good to see this back with some kool parts and decals...even if the box art is a laugh fest.
edit to ask: how many aluminum stacks are included, 6?
