This is a great new tool kit, but it does have a flash issue on some parts. Nothing that can't be taken care of, but it's unexpected for a brand-new tool. Assembly is very easy, everything fits nicely with one exception. The vent windows are too long by about 1mm, so the trim on the top of the doors must be cut for proper fit. I would also suggest gluing the vent windows to the body prior to painting and masking them off to make things easier later. A very well done kit, swap out the tires (Standard Revell generics) for something nicer, and this is a great kit!

Thanks for the assist Ed!

Another issue that popped up during final assembly involves the front pan. You need to trim the frame rails back to just about the radiator core support to get the front pan to fit properly!
