Great review Rowan, but one bit did have me a bit flummoxed

Quoted Text

although this boxing dates to 2106,


Only kit I know off that has come from the future .
Obviously a typo that you missed so I changed it to a more sensible date lol.

Cheers Andy

I was obviously just testing to see if anyone would notice. Actually, it should read 2016.

All the best

Excellent review Rowan, very comprehensive. You are going to have a great time building this one, and I am really looking forward to following along.

Cheers Damian

Yes - it seems a really sound kit. Although I've built a number of car kits over the years, a big American classic will be new territory for me. It looks like it will be great fun.

All the best

Hi Damian

Many thanks for the link. There are some very useful shots there.

I made a start on the kit the other day. Nothing to show yet, but it's going pretty smoothly so far.

All the best

Rowan
