I found a copy of this last week at a Hobby Lobby during their 30% off sale. I haven't had a chance to open it up and compare it to the AMT version sitting on the workbench. I hope to get it done at the same time as the AMT and maybe even paint them the same colors. I would really like to build a bunch of these and just might someday!

... One thing I noticed - the built up model on the box does not have the intake vent on the panel in front of the hood, this is on the AMT kit and on all photos I have seen of the real cars. (and the movie car as well) That's a real boo boo on Revell's part as this is one of the most noticable features of the car. They must have eliminated the vent to allow the stickers to adhere easily I think. Suprised none of the reviewers have noticed this.

Perhaps it's because there's nothing really to notice. That vent may be missing on the boxcover, but it's right there on the actual Revell body shell.

Double-click the first photo in this thread and have a closer look.

You can just about make it out in Dave's photo of his green car, as well.

Oh good, it's not me. I couldn't figure out what was missing.

lol, yeah - probably because you provided the evidence that it's not!

I just got the Hot Wheels version last week and the wheels in mine are fine; it's molded in a reddish orange but I can live with that.
