AAR Cuda

This is the new Revell AAR kit.  I bought it with a gift card I got as a bonus from work.  I had gotten the old kit when it first cam out, but I bought the wrong paint and did not like the results.  This kit is not a bad kit, but it just doesn't look right to me.  I like the original kit better.

Great looking AAR. I always liked the hood design on this model. Not sure of the objections you have on this, it looks fine in the photos. 

IDK, just doesn't look to the right proportions when compared to this one.

I'm thinking it's narrower and the ride height is higher compared to this one.  Come to think of it; I don't think the back tires were raised.  AARs and T/As are supposed to have raised back ends.

The AARs also came with different diameter tires.... Or was it just the wheels????.... ?

Tires E60x15 fronts G60x15 rears.  The decals on the new Revell kit are not correct so I think that is also an issue.  When I built the Hemi Cuda I think you wanted to use the custom setting on the front suspension as it sits too high and I feel like I did some work on the axle on the back too.  You did a nice job on the kit though.
