I think to build these three... The kit is average, inside the box there are tons of bags, with parts. The kit is made out of plastic and white metal, rubber tires, seats and side panels. There are a lot of parts, and also some photo etch. The first thing on the tires are missing the name on the side... So need to find the letters for it, any idea to find some appropriate letters?

Sometime it take time, it's been few years since I start to look for these kits, and I was able to find without pay an arm or a leg. :) Of course it was not a Revel price, but also not the crazy one that you can see on ebay.

I know that kit very well. I hope you build one up. I would love to see it. I sold my kit to a buddy that wanted it bad. Thought I would just pick up another. They went from about 60 bucks to 125 or so in a pretty short time. I still need to get another for my collection.

There is no way I could maintain interest in building three of the same kit, unless one was a race car, one was a 4x4 and one was a post apocalyptic zombie killer.

 

My hat's off to you sir, I look forward to seeing the work.

Perfect! Thank you for the link Steve.

I didn't had to much time yesterday to look a the kit, only a little glance. Agree, the price went up crazy, good luck to find one.

Very nice job Len! I like it in red, but I think to paint mine in blue.

My hat's off to you sir, I look forward to seeing the work.

 

Me too usually I don't like to build the same car/configuration, but with these is different. Plus I think it will be easier... I think... :D And save time too! Will see... :D Thanks!

The big difference between the first and second edition is some graphic on the box.

 

First edition kit on top.

Some other differences on the boxes.
