what cracks me up is they call it a "55" but i would wager there is nothing 55 on it!

I built this as a review kit for RoR a few months ago. It is completely whacked, I hope no one expects it to be high quality because it's not. But it is a great looking shelf model and a reminder to many of us of our childhoods. I left the body yellow and by the time you get the decals on, the yellow body, black decals and red "glass" really contrast each other and look awesome.

Is the Badman kit any good? I've never built one,but I built the original Monogram 55 Chevy hardtop many years ago.

That kit had so many options..

John, it depends on your idea of good. Everything fits together fine, but it's far from accurate. As a fun build, yes. as anything else, no.

IMO it doesn't matter if its good or bad.  Its a 55 chevy......nothing else matters.    I love 55 chevies.
