I am actually in the middle of building this kit as well. There are a TON of flaws with the overall fitment with mine. The rear body panel does not line up with the right rear quarter panel. The body is not warped nor is the rear panel. There are also a lot of flash from the age of the base kit.

Hm...
I can't recall big issues with the body in my build, but certainly I had plenty problems with the under-frame and the fitting of engine - exhaust rail. Too much flash in impossible to reach chrome parts and locator pins misaligned. Actually I wasn't ever able to achieve a good match between the exhaust manifold and exhaust pipes. It was to late into the build when I discovered the problem and, since isn't too visible... I let it go like that.

Cheers!

Very nice build. And that's coming from a Ford guy when I use to buy American muscle.

I do remember all of these AMT and MPC kits, so it doesn't surprise me that they're showing their age compared to what is currently being made today. Yet, you built a rock solid replica.

Baldwin is on the South Shore of LI, and I do remember every once in a while driving down there to see what's what.

Thank you, Joel! I dinb't ever know where Baldwin comes from. I thought it must be the designer's name as per European fashion. I've learnt something new today - thank you!
... and yes! I love stock cars much better than mechanical steroids impregnated "things".
