I don't think this kit is as bad as its reputation. The worst part of the kit is the wheels and tires. If you use some from the parts box it transforms the kit. The kit wheels and tires have terrible detail.  And Molotow chrome sprayed with an airbrush is one of the best things to happen to our hobby.
