The body is nicely done...no sink marks \I can see, and the only mold lines are at the front near the edges of the front fascia, and along the tops of the rear q-panels. They wont take much sanding to knock down.

I,ll just go ahead and post the parts trees. They're nicely done, and not very much flash on these parts. The floor pan has a bunch of sink marks, but thats not a problem.

It's a reissue but new decals. I was a little disappointed that the kit was unchanged from the last issue and the body is incorrect for the version shown on the box. I thought for sure that when RM announced the kit they would update the body as the C6-R has replaced this C5-R. I love road race cars.....even produced some kits myself.....so I was happy to see a 'new' road race kit come to market........but a new box and decals is a little disappointing.

Dave- I was thinking the same thing, it looks like the same kit they did in the late 90's I think it was when Revell first did this kit

The reason they used the older C5R kit is that is the body that that this particular decal version had in '03 at Lemans, before GM updated the car to the C6R. The only problem I have with it is that they only choose to do the decals for the # 50 car and not include the #'s 53 on the sheet, which was the team car for the Lemans race.

I understand a C5-R is correct for these decals.....but had hoped they updated the body some like they have been doing with some of their kits of late. Still a decent kit but only a new set of decals and a box top. :(

I am ecstatic getting this kit with these decals! I noticed they included 2 sets of wheels with this kit. I always thought the BBS were a little small but the OZ look to be the correct size and were run on this car during this time.

:P

does the finished model sit as close to the ground (scale wise) as that photo on the box? or would one have to modify it to get it to sit that low?

i have a flintstone cadillac XLR that i am thinking about trying to put over something like this and i would like to have to mess with the chassis as little as possible beyond just fitting the body, and i would want it to hug the ground.

I may put my other projects aside this week and put it together. For a Skill level 3 it really doesnt look too bad. I think maybe it should have received a 2 instead. I'll know by they end of the week. It'll be a first but I'll post pics for you guys when it's done.
