I've heard several varying reports of the Linburg/ Pyro Triumph GT. It's not Linburg's fault as they simply bought that "OLD " tool as well as I M C's OLD TOOLS along with every other extinct manufacturer out there . The problem is the Younger builders never knew of these kits back when . They have this notion that the current manufacturer did it on purpose for what ever reason . The same can be said of a reissued old "Annual " with molded chassis details .
Now in some defense of Revel, I have done many of their kits , including those "Multi-Piece bodies ". I did the 59 Ford Sunliner Retractable hard top several years ago. Revell Germany had just re released it in the original art work box, molded in bright Green . Yes, there was a small amount of "Flash ". I'm not surprised given the age of this kit and as many times as it's been re issued over the years too. I had to really "WORK " the hinge mechanisms to make my model have an operating top . However, the "Thumbnail at the bottom will show you that with A LOT OF CARE, decent results aren't out of the question.
The Revel Austin Healey is another one of those old 1950's kits . Johnny, a member here traded me this one a while ago. This kit too, was a re-pop of the original art work , circa , 1958. Molded in a warm White , I actually did a step by step build of this kit for his forum . I had to clamp joints in using some small "Bar clamps " overnight on a couple of occasions . There weren't any "REAL " surprises except the hood won't clear a built six cylinder engine though . But , I remember the AMT 1959 El Camino having the exact same issue too..............
All in all, probably the hardest kits revel did with fitment issues would have included the 1955 Lincoln Futura as the trunk didn't really line up on the quarter panels too well. The Pontiac Club de Mer had some issues along the sides as well as the 1957 Cadillac El Dorado Broham HT . Point is though, they're fixable with some careful finessing . In comparing ANY Early Revel kit to ANY IMC/ TESTORS/ UNION / LINBURG issued kit , humph, I'll be happy to do a Revell kit .
