Revell 2014 Snap C7 Corvette mini review

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

  After more than a year late,  Revell has finally started releasing the C7 Corvette kits.  The first one out is the SNAP version seen here.

The box is the small one. Mine came in the mail a bit crushed but the content was OK.

Less than 40 parts. The emblems are vinyl stickers, not decals. Keep in mind, this is a snapper oriented at "almost instant gratification" to kids and first time builders. Do not expect decals or anything that may seem "complicated"

Body looks good. Again, don't forget this is a snapper so most details are molded in (grilles ,exhaust, etc.)

As expected the one piece chassis has some engraved detail.  The interior is fairly basic with adequate detail but there is no provision for instrument decals. Again, did I mention this is a snapper?

Finally, the wheels look decent. Tires are nothing to write home about.  But my biggest disappointment is the lack of brakes.  I know, metal axle snapper so you don't want to see calipers rolling along, BUT.....

In conclusion, it should be a fun exercise until we get the more detailed version with engine, brakes etc.

Now, one in Laguna blue, one in Cyber Grey and the third in........ hmmmmmm let me get back to you on that.....

Thanks,

Looks good, I was given one at the club last week but I think I'll hold for the more detailed version....
