Engine

Beautiful Ford 289 is well detailed and fits together just perfectly. I added ignition wiring, throttle linkage, and fuel line.

Interior

Interior is wonderfully engraved just screaming for some detail painting. Rustoleum texture paint was used to simulate a sprayed on durable coating.

Body

The body went together very well. The open grille is an impressive piece. Didn't have to grind away the back to open it up. Every piece fits very well. I filled the holes for the outrigger spare tire and put it inside. The fender flares were made with strip styrene and Bondo. I needed wider flares to cover the tires. HOK sunrise pearl was used on the body.

Chassis

The frame rails are separate from the chassis pan making for detail painting easier. Front, rear suspension, and exhaust are all separate pieces. Some serious lowering was done to the suspension. Wheels/tires are from the parts box.

Instructions

The instructions are several pages long with suggested paint colors for specific parts and a numbered list to tell you what part is what.

This was a very enjoyable kit to work on and plan to purchase a couple more in the near future. Thank you to IPMS for allowing me to review this kit and to Revell for providing it for review.
