 It's hard to believe this came out of an AMT box.  This kit is very well engineered and detailed.  Unusually high parts count and plenty of delicate pieces and some of the best chrome I have ever seen.  Nice and smooth with no dirt at all.  I was really impressed and it went together with no problems at all, but it needed a few scratch-built details.  Refinished in DuPont lacquers; engine wired and plumbed; scratch built fuel pump and fuel filter, throttle and choke cable, generator, and distributor, and ignition coil.  Scratch built interior door handles and window cranks, shifter, parking brake lever, trunk hold down straps and side lift handles.  Very enjoyable, but time consuming build.  Spent about a month doing it.  I realllly like these old kits.  I wish the old time engineers were still around; we need more kits like this.

This is the Basic Builder kit from RM. 
Engine was wired and plumbed, refinished in custom mix BASF lacquers- inside and out, clear coated in DuPont urethane, loads of foil required. This was a really nice kit with a lot of options. I highly recommend it.

And they said it couldn't be done... 
Considering it was an old kit, it wasn't too bad. It just needed a lot of TLC. 


The entire body was re-scribed, as well as the interior. The finishes are DuPont Laquer, BASF Laquers, cleared with DuPont Urethane. Parts box, tires, and white wall inserts, loads of foil.
