You'll notice that there are some key differences in the molds, the 1/12 has the transmission tunnel undercover that the 1/24 does not. Also, the front hood is also molded in 1 piece on the 1/24, but not on the 1/12.
I'm sure the reviewer on SAM had the boxes mixed up..
That's what I'm starting to think.......I think SAM and/or the review is flawed. The picture I posted was scaned from the magazine review and it clearly states kit #12047, 1/12 scale and a $610.00 price. I posted yours (and now my) suspicions on the SAM Forum.....I guess we'll see if it was a mixed up review.
