A good point about how nice the decals are. Who remembers this kit when ERTL/MPC didn't have the Licensing rights for Trans Am decals. You had to cut up the alphabet jumble to arrange then into "TRANS AM". No easy feat and still make it look good.
Considering all the bad things that people have said about this kit, this build sure looks good and shows that it can be made nice. These kits can be found at model shows for $12-15 which is a good deal.
Tory the tiny differences are the result of this kit being a Modified Stocker kit in the '70s. The first reissue from ERTL in the '80s was horrible. I picked up a later ERTL version and they had revised the headlights and emblems which was better. Maybe other items too?
