My Sons Revell Snap-Tite MAX F-150 SVT Raptor
Posted by mustang1989 on Wednesday, August 02, 2017 3:28 PM

My 13 year old son was at our house all day with his Aunt yesterday and didn't want to get on his phone, tablet or Xbox like he usually does sooooooooooo...............he went into the hobby room and grabbed the Raptor kit that I bought him at the end of June and went to work. Evidently he worked on it trying to turn out the best build he could. When I got home last night he met me out in the drive way and led me into the hobby room to proudly show off his creation to me. I guess he's really gotten into the last couple of builds that I've been working on and wanted to follow suit. He was so happy with the results that I couldn't help but to clean it up just a smidgen more, take some glamour shots and put it on his computer as wallpaper and build a screen saver for him and to post it here for him. Hope you guys enjoy it.

 

This is what he started with:

I must say that I've been pleasantly surprised with the level of detail in the "Max" kits. Lotsa goodies in there for a Snap Tite kit.

and a shot of the interior. Again not bad for a snap kit:

A very nice start. I wonder if those tires can improve most of the HMMWV kits in 1/35

Hi,

That looks really nice.  I have to admit that I've picked up a couple snap together kits recently, and have also been surprised by how detailed and reasonably good looking they are as well. Smile

You let Joseph know that I am immensely impressed with the effort he put into this and with the excellent finished product. It is really awesome. What I think is commendable is that he actually built this on his own accord. And it seems to me that someone has been paying a good bit of attention to what pop's has been doing and how he's been doing it.

My question is, are those stickers for the decor and dash instruments? Smart kit anyway.

Hmmm;

 I was telling my son the other day .These " Snap - Tite " kits are amazing in the detail department ! . I have a Camaro ( don't like the car ) but wanted to try a " Snap - Tite ".

 It was 50% off in the store where I found it . Really good detail in the dash and insides , much better than the glue version I also picked up for 50% off .

 I will go the extra mile just so my friends quit giving me grief about " No Camaros " !
