again, thank you, Dave, for putting that out there. having suffered through the bad part of the "good old days" when all of the companies were churning out dross in the form of decontented kits, poorly retooled "theme" kits, and running tools until parts were buried in flash, i'm more than pleased to see the effort come to fruition where reissues get corrected, new tools get accurized, and best of all, customers get listened to.
i'll be honest, Revell kits were my bane as a youth- fiddly fit issues, flaking chrome, they were tough to build WELL. getting 60's era kits to look good took supreme effort. the newer '70's kits went together well; didn't share fit issues, and made good shelf-sitters with moderate effort and looked GREAT if the builder had some skill.
i've been working the new '57 Ford and the '50 Olds and they practically FALL together. GREAT kits.
