Lee Iacocca memorial community build: Dodge Stealth Indy official car. I bought this kit for $8.10 when it was new, was on sale, thought that since the real thing was cancelled at the last minute, it would become a collector's item. I didn't know AMT popped a billion of them, always see some at model swap meets, and on eBay some are selling for $8-9, so it didn't even keep up with inflation. I already built a Viper. I was glad the tires didn't melt on the windows. My plan is to make it look neglected, and driven like a rally car, but stick with Box Stock. Getting the nail 'polish' cost more than the freaking kit! The plastic has a hint of pearl, some photos of the real car seems to have a hint of green (the actual Pace Car is hideous). Started sub-assemblies tonight. One error in the instructions is the half shaft part through the rear differential, one side is shorter, not indicated, of course I got it wrong, had to break off and switch. Hardly any sink marks, putty on the muffler and mirrors was all, superglue and baking soda in the oil filter void. Minor mold seam under the headlights, otherwise AMT did a very good job with this kit. Did my usual scraping mold lines on everything, more than the usual amount of tubing because of the twin turbos. Next step, wash all the parts, and start painting! Funny thing, the Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar is also a 6 cylinder, twin turbo, AWD sports car. But I ain't taking years to get this puppy done!
