I built that kit years ago but if i remember i took my time on it and had no trouble with it,sure looks good when finshed.my 2cents.

 

That really is the key to building this kit. Take your time. Use the fixtures that come in the kit to build the exhausts. Don't get in a hurry, and test-fit carefully as you go. These WILL build into gorgeous models.

That's my build. Kind of a challenge to build but makes a killer looking model when it's all done. I have the Challenger kit too but haven't gotten to it.

I remember talking to Ivo about this kit. He told me he tried building one when they were originally issued. He said it didn't take him long to realize that building the real car was much easier. He said "my paws were just too big for all those little parts".
