hpiguy added a topic in Car Kit News & ReviewsRevell 76 Gran Torino Model Kit ReviewNice kit, modern molds of course. Great pad printed tires, but no brand name. Sweet stock wheels. Nice factory stock version of the car.
Check out my Starsky & Hutch kit review for the same kit in the show's 'hopped up' style.

hpiguy added a topic in Car Kit News & ReviewsMPC Dodge 'Country' Charger Open Box ReviewThis is MPC's release of the 'Country' Charger in 1:25th scale.
It's basically a direct re-pop of the long running General Lee kit, all the General Lee parts are included and you'll get an optional set of Torq-Thrust wheels and new flag decals with various names and numbers in the same font as the General Lee car.
This is molded in all black.

hpiguy added a topic in Car Kit News & ReviewsMPC Don Garlits Rear Engine Dragster Kit ReviewReissue of the classic kit.
Now with full 3D cardboard display base, pad printed slicks and new decal sheet. Has the fully deployed parachute and packed chute option.
Frame is one piece, thin and straight as an arrow, nice job on that in my opinion.

hpiguy added a topic in Car Kit News & ReviewsAMT 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28 Kit ReviewNice re-release of the classic 83 Z28 kit.
Minimal flash, nice chrome work, decal sheet is clear. No big new surprises on this one, just a good repop of an older kit. Would have liked some different tires though, just personal opinion.

hpiguy added a topic in Car Kit News & ReviewsRevell Kevin Harvick Jimmy John's #4 Ford Fusion Kit ReviewRevell is back with the full paint and assemble NASCAR kits, first off the line is this Ford Fusion in Kevin Harvick #4 Jimmy John's livery. Looks great, no name tires but that is easily solved and most of us will want to letter those tires for sure.
Glass is super thin and prepainted, roll bars are nice and thin, no short shorts or mold issues. Even includes a figure and full decals of course.
Aftermarket guys will make a mint selling every race stable colors imaginable.
I'm really excited about the Napa Chevy SS kit, I just like the Napa
