I going to start a 68 396 Chevelle soon but i am not crazy about the AMT version. Anything with more detail?
Thanks,
Joe.

BBC is a BBC......Lots of great motors out there, Body / kits are limited, unless you do resin

 

Revell has a nice '67

I really like the big block 396 in the Revell '69 Camaro RS/SS convertible. The bonus with it is it comes with a nice set of headers also. If you want one with a Turbo 400 behind it, the AMT '57 Corvette street machine (green on the box) has a very nice one. The price you can get this kit for is well worth it just for the parts alone.

Like the man said, 396-427-454 are all visually very similar, basically the same engine.

Revell '65 Chevelle Z-16. Best 1/25 scale BBC IMHO.
