.....compare the green panels to the correctly-printed purple/pink versions below them on the same sheet in the pic.

Ugh... about all that's any good from that kit is the rolling stock. I'm thinking of using some of the spare parts from the AMT '34 Ford kit engine (I'm assuming this kit has a 350), with some Minilite wheels I already have laying around.
I have thought about that too Chuck......think the AMT Camaro Concept Car would make a good parts donor?

after seeing how rough the body looks i've decided to pass on this one.
where did the rain gutters go? some places they are sorta there and other places, nowhere to be seen.
i don't remember the A-team issue kit being this bad. does that kit have the same body issues as this one?
Don't be afraid to give this one a chance. It's not bad at all. You can't really tell by pics......you need to see it in person. I was releived to see that it was fairly authentic to the original kit from back in the day.

1.) Environmental Standards ( and , yes , I'm factoring China in here )
2.) Shipping Durability
3.) Storage Durability
I've recently bought the 1962 Catalina SD , "Class Action" Monte Carlo , Buick 225 , and 1960 Starliner kits , and the plating looks very nice in each one of 'em .
Not certain if any stripping will be necessary as of yet ...
