I just opened this kit after receiving it from Hobbylinc.com last night. A couple of big let downs are the chrome plating is really bad compared to the last few round2 kits that I have purchased. Looks like it's got sand in it in many areas and is wrinkled in other areas.
The chrome plating on mine was very good, with no issues of note. The rear tail panel, which IIRC was aluminum on the real car, is absolutely beautiful, and likely the best part of the kit. The bumpers and grille look good, too, despite the molded in(!) headlights.
The driveshaft is molded to the floorpan/chassis piece, so that look horrible, and the chassis is of the perfectly-straight-on-both-sides variety, meaning it drops right inside the body shell, but leaves a gap all the way around, save for one or two areas. The interior tub isn't too bad, despite being a little shallow and having molded in door door panels and a floor console.
Another thing is the shape of the front wheel openings - the trailing edges are cut back so far that part of the chassis shows in the opening. I don't remember this on the original kit.
Everything else is pretty much as I remember from the original and to be honest is why I got out of modelling during the late 70s.
Not sure why the trailing edges of the front wheel arches are like that (Mark?), but those areas stick out like a sore thumb and will need to be corrected. I can't say I'd recommend using this body and the associated body parts-- bumpers, grille, header panel, etc.-- for anything more than a donor to use with a more accurate '67-'76 Mopar A-body, though. If you've looked over the AMT '75-6 AMC Gremlin kits, this one should look very familiar, with it's generic looking performance parts (Thrush Outsider sidepipes excluded), and engine assembly that looks kinda like the real thing, but lack the details which most '90s and up kits include, and the chassis has molded on riser pegs to support the metal axles. The "340" bodyside stripes are a bit puzzling, too, as mentioned earlier in this topic, since the 340 was long gone by '75.
On the positive side, the body shape looks much more accurate than AMT's '71 Duster 340, especially around the rear quarter windows, as well as the general roof shape.
