AMC Javelin

Bought the kit with my tax refund.  Been wanting one for my collection for awhile.  Had to oreder the decals because the ones the kit came with fell apart.  The kit itself wasn't bad but, there were some issues.  The engine was highly detailed; even had an air grabber on the air cleaner.  However, the engine bay was not detailed, nor was the underside of the car.  I also hated the rod system for the wheels.  Especially, since I only had one rod with the kit.  Over all though it came out OK.

Loved the first kit so much I went out and got another.  There's still a few flaws and I'm putting the finishing touches on them.  I just wanted to get the pics while it was nice and sunny out; we're expecting rain soon.  The color, of all the big bottles of yellow paint they could have, is Blue Angels Yellow oddly enough.  As always I built it stock for my collection.

Need to work on the grill a bit, bt other than that; it came out good.

Just got the kit a couple weeks ago.  It's not a bad kit, though I don't like the thin metal emblems.  Almost lost them, and on top of that I bent the metal that goes over the tail lights.

Got this kit a couple weeks ago.  It's a Monogram kit.  I've been wanting a 57 for awhile now, so I thought I'd pick it up. 

 

The kit isn't too bad, but I did have some issues.  The glass for the windsheild was bigger than the frame!  I also had an issue with the front suspension fit.  There is also a hole for a radiator hose on the engine, but no hose, nor mention of one in the directions.  I also hate the lack of decals.  However, I think it came out well.  I found a picture of a car just like it and copied the paint scheme.  I wanted a two tone interior, and I liked the paint scheme of the inspiration car.
