Been wanting one for awhile since I first found out there was a model of one. The kit is pretty nice, but it has its flaws. It's molded in black, plated, and white with some over molding on certain pieces. Pieces like the grill, which broke on me. There's also some fit issues on the underside. The drive shaft is a little too long and the rear wheel placement is slightly off. That was actually where the start of my issues began. I like that they have a nicely detailed engine for it though. I also like that they add decals for the plates, but not the emblems or gauges. Over all it did come out nice.

Got this with some birthday money last month. I saw it on the Revell site and thought it was beautiful. The kit isn't bad. The color instructions were nice. The kit is molded in orange and black, which wasn't cool. The engine is easy to build and looks nice. The underside is flat except for the area where the front and rear wheels go. There's two flat pieces with arms for the tire pegs. There's also another flat piece that glues onto the front flat piece With that piece glued on the front piece will not be flush with the underside. I had to do some work to make it look right. The interior assembles nicely. Just a lot of painting. The rear window and side windows are kinda tricky to get in. The side windows slide in over the outside of the openings. I opted not to go for the door windows as they didn't fit right and I also like to pick up my models that way. Final assembly sucked. The chassis is supposed to be taped down front and glued; then back and glued. Yeah, I glued the front and then found a 20lb rock to hold down the back. Not cool. The engine cover in the rear is also not a great fit. It's a clear piece with a decal over it. It just sits over the engine and not very well. I had to glue it in place. It also requires some painting around it to make it look right. Everything else fits pretty nice. The doors are a little tricky. I was also sad you either glue them open or shut. Would have been cool to have functioning scissor doors. Still, with all the trouble it looks great!

https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2013-06-29-Riverside/i-29Zd7Gv When I saw Ranchero Steve's photos of Gurney's cars from the Peterson, thought I'd post these for more info for reference. Not all the best shots since was a bit darker in there then I thought. Was going to get back out and rephoto some, then the money man behind the museum died and it eventually folded. Support your local museums!!! Also I posted photos from the Unser Museum a couple of months ago, think there are a couple of Eagles there also.
