This 1968 Mustang GT Fastback is modeled after the famed "Bullitt" Mustang that was driven by Steve McQueen in the grandest of all automotive car chases ever. So let's begin shall we?
Model Mustang GT
Parts Count: 82
Molded Colors: White, Clear Red, Clear, and Chrome Plated
Here's what's included in the box:
Pros: Crisp Moldings with very little flash or sink marks, pretty accurate looking parts, good parts count, Clear instructions with "recommended" paint colors, decent tread representation, and accurate decals for the build.
Cons: Not much room for improvement without a major overhaul, straight axels front and rear, hole through engine block and oil pan, screws hold the interior pan in place, one tab and one screw hold pan/frame assembly to body, very toy like hood hinges, and basic tire sidewalls/lacking detail.
Overall Conclusion: I have to say Revell has really dropped the ball on this one. This car builds up more or less into a Toy instead of a static model. Everything about this model screams "Die Cast" cookie cutter build except in styrene. This doesn't come as a surprise as a lot of their "new releases" are like this. I really hate the metal axels front and rear. To make this car "accurate" will take some scratchbuilding and a lot of research. As far as the chrome is concerned. Its not bad and is nice and shiny with no major defects.
Overall rating from 1 to being poor and 5 being the greatest. Revell you get a 2.5 in my book on this kit. This kit is more of a Skill Level 1 not a 2, unless you consider the painting the most challenging part of the build.
That's my opinion and Thank you for reading.
