After I finished my Revell Snap Kenny,I was planning to work on my "Annie" build but she is kickin' my rear,the frame is warped and I am having a heck of a time to get her level so I am gonna start on this Pete as a "tweener".....Hopefully I learned from my mistakes on the Kenny and do a lil' better this time....Just wish I would have used the Pete as a guinea pig instead of the Kenny.....Ohhhhh well

Have fun with this kit. It does go together well, but as usual the tires are bad. One thing that I ran into with my build was the pins for the grill were too long, and hit the radiator causing the hood not to close properly.

Hey Jim,thanks for the heads up on the grille,thats "if" I have a grille for it,at closer look at the chrome on the grille and rear wheels found out the chrome is "hazed" real bad....

I bought 4 of these the other day for a couple of projects and parts. So far all the tires have gone together well. One of the best things revell did was the cardboard piece inside the box to keep it from crushing!

Is this close to or the same exact color used on the 1996 Impala SS? I was just wondering since it states GM and it says 1996.
I like that color as I have a AMT/ERTL 95 Camaro that I want to paint in this color ...

Some of the tires are warped out of shape and do not sit on the rims proper,I have seen this on other builds,but knock on wood my Kenny and this Pete all have good tires.....

Very nice!

The fenders are on backwards though. Other than that, I like where these are going. :)

Rear steps are removed from fenders. I may be getting old, but I can still see! These pics used the same pair of fenders for both shots. day cab will still have the step on rear of fenders. Haven't decided on color for day cab yet.

Okay. I thought I saw the steps in the front. My bad. These are going to look good once you are done with them.
