Salvinos JR model kits
Posted by cabrown1 on Monday, October 18, 2021 9:15 AM

Hi, has anybody had any experience with the Salvinos JR race car kits? It's my understanding that they are some of the old Monogram kits retooled and updated. I have the Richard Petty '73 Charger kit. Looking at the box contents, it looks pretty good. No flash overtly present (everything is still in the bags, though). Wondering about the 3 front bumpers included!?!? One molded in white plastic and two in chrome.

I built their AJ Foyt Olds 442 kit last summer and really liked it. Most everything fit and it  was molded well. The instructions are sometimes more like vague suggestions but usually looking at the next step will show you where the part needs to go. My only real problem was that one of the tires was badly formed and had a large gouge in one part of it. I twice contacted customer service via email and over a year later have yet to hear back so if something's wrong you should assume you're on your own. The malformed tire is mostly hidden in a wheelwell and can't be seen. Someday I'm sure I'll buy another of their kits.

I have their Hawaiin Tropic kit but haven't built it.  The kit looks great though.  They are coming out with 2021 nascar camaros soon - so fully new tool.

Thanks,

John

Grumpy Old Scale Modeler has a few build videos on these kits.  They look pretty sharp.
