The Revell gassers get a lot of bad press as kits, and they were certainly beyond the skills of the average younger, less experienced modelers (I was responsible for a less-than-stellar Anglia myself) but again, they COULD (and still can) make very nice models with enough time and patience.
/sarcasm on/ But. but ... I don't want to be patient and invest time and effort into a model; it should just fall together outta the box! /sarcasm off/
