How well does the amt 41 plymouth go together

How well does the amt 41 plymouth go together?

Is it a good fitting kit or a nightmare like the 51 chevy kits, or somewhere in between?

 

I dont see it built too often or at least displayed in the under glass on this site

Two things to look at:

-the separate piece for the grille surround.  If you choose to mold it in to the body (at the top: the sides should show a join between it and the fenders) count on a little bit of careful work.

-on the finished model, when you turn it over you can see all the way up the sides of the interior, on either side of the chassis.  It is possible to cut thin pieces of sheet plastic and fit them between interior and chassis to block that view.

The assembled car does look good when assembled with patience, though.

The '41 Plymouth builds up nicely, and most of the details look to have been replicated (I seem to recall Bill Coulter had some input into this kit). The '51 Chevs were a bit too complex in design, especially with the front inner fenders, and the front sheetmetal needs some massaging (bumper too far out, and headlight bezels too bulbous).
