I'm currently in the process of building three of these including this
Ed Roth version. The other two are the Red Street Demon and the
the Blue Street Version. Of the three, I noticed the same type of
fit with the hood of the Ed Roth Version. I wondered why the "newest"
version had the worst fit.
So, win, lose or draw, I'm pressing forward with my builds hoping for
I think the bigger challenge of the Ed Roth kit will be the decals! I
have a small bottle of Testors Dark Red that I plan to use to fill in
the gaps between the decals and the edges of the truck.
I'm very glad to see someone not only attempt this build
but succeed in building it rather well! I like this car alot!
I tried this build about 10 years ago and dang near almost
finished. But at the very end it didn't seem like it was all
going to fit together all that well. I have another kit on
standby in case I ever decide to tackle it again. And after
seeing this post, I just might!
I also have this same kit from Airfix which is rather nice
it was fun to compare the parts between the two kits.
Some of my favorite cars on this forum are the ones
where the builder had a clear vision of what they wanted
to do and then executed superbly! You have clearly
done that here. Everything came together very well!
This car is very sleek and nicely done! Great Job!
