This was really a fun kit. There's not many parts but you do get 4 surfboards, 3 figures, 2 garbage cans (fuel tanks), and SCUBA tanks.


Bottom half of the engine is molded to the chassis.


Front ans rear ladder bars hold the suspension. There's really not much to it.


Seats, shifter, steering wheel and column, resemblance of a dashboard is all you get.


It's a real simple body without much detail. I decided my version would resemble a pickup truck turned into a landscaping vehicle. After priming the body with Duplicolor grey sandable primer, I shot a few coats of Dupli-Color dark cherry followed by a coat of Nason 2 part urethane clear. Only a little bit of wet sanding and polishing with Novus #2 was necessary before applying a coat of The Treatment Model Car Wax.

Monogram/Revell needs to be thanked for producing the kit and thank you to IPMS for the opportunity to build and review the kit.
