Walked out of HL with the reissued Surf Woody wondering why it felt heavier than most kits, especially remembering from my youth that the parts count wasn't all that high. While having a couple of these kits in the stash from an earlier release, it was hard to resist the original packaging, plus the 40% coupon made it irresistible. Upon opening the kit I was very pleasantly surprised by the contents, the kit itself has four slicks, pad printed with double lined whitewalls, something that was missing in the previous edition, then there was the usual miniature cutout box #97, original appearing instruction sheet and an updated decal sheet with interior panels featuring a surfer scene. Then, adding weight to the kit box, was the additional material! A fourteen page booklet on the Tom Daniel creation and built by Barris, with great detail photos, and a card stock package which builds into a display platform reminiscent of the hobby shop displays the companies would offer the the hobby shops. These additions really surprised me as I didn't notice any mention of them on the box. Whoopie! Overall I'd say it a great release of a kit that until recently had been lost to history, and kudos to Round 2 for adding the extras. Cheers Misha
