1967 Chevy Impala AMT/Ertl review
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, May 27, 2003 10:45 AM
Just finished this model and I have a review.
First, instructions do not tell you to put in exhaust pipes before axle which caused a great deal of trouble. Next, axle too long and tires crunched in body. Third, interior of car did not fit too well with body. Wrong car to work on "cold turkey" after ten years of no model building. Must be experienced model builder to make this one fit! Pictures will be forthcoming. Greg

I think you'll find the same is true for most of AMT/ERTL kits. They don't provide much detail or accuracy in their instructions. In many cases, you've got to read between the lines (what few there are) and in a lot of cases, you've got to give it your best guess guided by experience! In my experience, I find that dry-fitting parts and double checking clearances as you go is the only way to get it to come out right. It shows good character that you stuck it out to finish the kit and write this review. Welcome back to model autos.

Thanks for coming forward as I am trying to get back into this hobby and glad to see that there are others that are making the same move after being away for so many years. Looking forward to seeing the pics.
