  1. $27.99 w/free shipping on eBay, and that's not the only listing. There are plenty available.
  2. Yes. There is no problem with it, really, other than people like to mention it's inaccuracies. Now, many of those criticisms are fair and deserved, but again, unless you're part of the passionate fringe of builders, those niggles may not matter much. It's up to each builder to decide what they find acceptable, and proceed (or end) there. Considering it's the only 1/25 or 1/24 scale '56 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe available, there's no other choice for an out of the box model. While people like to suggest other options and modifications, some overlook the differences between Sedans and Coupes, thinking many things are interchangeable, when they in fact, are not, or may not be-- the "glass" for instance. Here's the review topic from the last time it was re-issued:
  3. I thought " 😄 no way" when I read that, then I found this: Features Authentic factory stock type wheels and tires or outrageous large diameter spoked rims with low profile rubber tires. Detailed V-8 engine with single 4 bbl. carb or fuel injected induction systems. Tampo printed black window edges. Multiple Stock and Custom Decal options. Molded in white, transparent red and clear with chrome plated parts and soft black tires 😞
  4. The prior "HEAVY CHEVY" reissue in the Original Art series a few years includes the custom Cibie Euro-style rectangular headlight lenses between the 'bridges' which connect the windshield and rear window, as seen on the box bottom: *edit* Separate headlight lenses are not included (see post below). The red lenses are to be used in the roof bar mounted flashers.
  5. The 1/25 AMT '69 Hurts/Olds Cutlass has a rear spoiler which is close, but not quite exactly the same from what I recall. The circa-1969 AMT ACCellerator Corvette kit has a rear spoiler with the correct shaped end caps (or close, they are still a bit thick), but the spoiler would need to be widened and thinned, and new pedestals added:
  6. I highly doubt it. The "chopped top" wording seems intentionally specific to me, indication only one building option. It's essentially the custom/chopped coupe body version from the AMT 1925 Ford Double T kit, and considering Round2 reissued the Double T kit in 2008, I can't blame them for essentially splitting the Double T kit in two, and offering each separately now.
  7. Coming soon, the 1/25 AMT 1995 GMC Sonoma pickup kit #1168:
  8. MPC kit number 921, the 1/25 scale Don Prudhomme Wynn's Winder front-engined dragster:
  9. As Rob mentioned, a Tuned Port Intake and aftermarket wheels (ten hole American Racing Outlaw(?) wheels were optional: Typical Monogram '80s kit-- body is mostly accurate, and it looks like an '86 Monte Carlo SS sitting on the shelf, but has simplified (but still separate from the frame/floorpan) suspension front and rear, with the '70s era Goodyear GT Radial tires (which debuted in '78 or so?) as the only included tires.
  10. Revell #4496, 1/24 1986 Chevy Monte Carlo SS 2'n1, coming...soon? 🤔
  11. Stevens has a (minor) update on the release date: RMX-4463 1/25 1929 Model A Roadster (ETA 2020)
