Revell 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda Kit Number 85-4416

Kit number 85-4416

I may be a little biased – this is my favorite muscle car of all time. A family friend bought a Lemon Twist for his wife in late 1969 or early 1970 and at the age of 13 I fell in love with the car and as they say, “The rest is history”.

This is an updated re-release of the 2013 issue of Revell’s 1970 Plymouth Hemi “Cuda kit number 85-4268 with the correct parts to build an AAR. There are even some extra parts included in the box. There is an amazing number of decals in the kit including those for the battery caps and marking for the heater hoses. With additional research, time, and patience it can be built into the best AAR ‘Cuda possible.

This one is built “box stock” using no aftermarket parts using only various paints and Bare Metal Foil to enhance the details. I wanted a “Vitamin C” colored body with the period correct white and black interior.

Pro’s: Extremely accurate details with accurate AAR parts. The model went together very well, so well I look forward to building another.

Cons: The decals are slightly thick, needing patience to get them to lay down flat. With the addition of white strobe stripes the builder would have the option for additional body and interior color combinations.

Overall, I highly recommend this kit and if you love Mopar Muscle it is a must have.
