My 57 Del Rio

Got her painted today. Doing as if someone ordered it with hp in mind versus cush. Single tone paint, poverty caps, and supercharged V-8.

This looks to be a cool kit. I should have bought this before I put a self imposed ban on kit buying. I like the police version

I think this is the most built kit that I have seen in a long time. A homerun for Revell.

Lee, I am glad you are supercharging this one. I almost didn't because there are no instructions on how to do it. The engine builds really well.

there is a link in the Del Rio thread in kit reviews. To Revell's instructions for the stock car version, it has the sc instructions.

Lee, you are correct and I followed the link and printed it. It had all the part numbers so it was a cinch to build.

Just ordered the Del Rio, I want to make the police option. I have a friend in the Rio Dell CA police department. A Rio Dell PD Del Rio.

I'll be watching. Jonathan

Like what I see so far, will be watching. I've started putting the engine together but can't decide whether to go stock or mild custom.

Right or wrong I like to shoot the pigs with red oxide primer now & then just to add some color.
