I bought one for $8 on Ebay 2 months ago. Not trying to be argumentative just that it pays to shop around. Got the GS kit for about the same amount. Granted that these were probably liquidators but a kit doesn't know here it comes from.
Not a Camaro guy but I might pick one of these up. OTOH, if Round 2 gives up a new Mustang with the same level of detail I'd pick several of them and the Camaro. Re: snap kits I've thought of getting the new Ford GT from Revell but I'm still not certain of the efforts needed to turn it into a Daytona/Le Mans race car even as a snapper. I'm certain there's more to it than slapping a wing on the back. But on a kit of this ilk I've no problem with a snap kit. The alternative is no kit at all. Similar to the Fujimi GT40's: curbside w/no engine detail but that hasn't prevented me from getting 5-6 of them of various types..
I got a notice LAST summer saying that my 2013 Mustang needed the replacement. Called the dealer and was told the parts weren't in but they'd let me know when they were ("Don't call us, we'll call you.") I just got another notice from Ford saying that my car still needed the replacement but they parts wouldn't be in until the last quarter of this year ("Don't call us, we'll call you.") OTOH, it seems most of the problems are in cars that reside in humid areas and that's not me. Still I scan the occasional arched eyebrow over the airbags whenever I drive....
I have a minimum of 5 of the 2010-2014 Mustangs. Started gathering kits that had some of the parts so I could duplicate my 2013 GT which you can see at the bottom. 2010 Revell for the base, 2013 Boss 302 for the front facia, etc. Then they released the pre-painted 2014 GT which included all the emblems also. Problem solved except for a re-paint/re-stripe. But I then had to buy the 2015 snapper because it had the correct wheels. Just one more thing, just one more, one more..... But maybe I can kit bash a 2012 Boss 302 like this. Does anyone know if the 1969 Boss 302 "C" stripe will work on this?
I, for one, wish Revell had left the 92-97 CV to Lindberg and gone with the 98-2011 body style. The differences and shortcomings noted in a direct comparison would have been muted and we would have a police car of a 14 year production model. I'm sure they had their reasons but for the money spent on the 1992 they could have had a more current model.
In 1970 I saw my first Boss 302 in Grabber Blue, my first of anything in that color. Who would have thought that 43 yrs later I'd again be able to get a 5.0 liter Mustang in Grabber Blue with more horse power and twice the gas mileage. I'm glad I lived that long.
Well, if we are going out of the country: I second the BMW 2002 tii BMW Bavaria or 3.0 CS Citroen SM Aston Martin DB5 with obvious movie tie-in (the stock Doyusha kit is bumping $100) Find/rescue/remold any of the early '60s Ferrari road cars please 275GTB, 250GT Lusso (oh, the Lusso)
1: 289 Cobra (such a hole in the pantheon of great cars. Could be done all the way from they used to call a "secretary's car" (white wall tires with wire spoke wheels) to full on FIA competition, each one with just a judicious parts swap. Wheels, wind screens, and dress up parts, or not, and a slightly different body for the "cut back" doors and you're there. Its beyond me as to why there isn't a modern kit of this important car. When did the AMT kit come out: 1962 or 63? 2: 67-68 Cougar 3: 1970-71 Montego 4: 250 SWB Ferrari
