Revell put together a pretty wild kit with this Beretta. It's almost straight out of the TV show "Street Outlaws".

Engine

We have a supercharged small block with nitrous. Real life would be putting out massive amounts of horsepower. Instructions were a little fuzzy on the distributor angle. Straight up won't allow the body to sit correctly, so it must be angled. Provides a pretty nice Lenco transmission.

Interior

There's not too much to the interior. Very nice bucket seats are provided, a full roll cage, ton of gauges, fire extinguishers, nitrous bottle, and shifters.

Body

Body is a simple affair and has the Chevy bowtie molded in on the engine bay. After shooting the body with HOK black followed by a quick clear coat, I wasn't able to get the decals to set as well as I thought they should. I even used decal solvents to try get them to lay down.

Chassis

Most of the chassis is a pan with rails up front to support the engine and suspension. Rear tires are magnificent no-name units, while the rear suspension glues into the driveshaft and a pin up in the wheel tubs.

The instruction sheet is a multi-page affair that lists all the parts by number. The instructions had a couple of pieces that were numbered incorrectly.

Thank you to Revell for producing this kit and thank you to IPMS for allowing me to review the kit.
