NEW Revell 1/25 Chevy Beretta Pro Street

The Pro Street Beretta has almost nothing in common with the cars you find on the street. The original is a sweet ride, but the Pro Street version is all muscle. It’s equipped with a 700 horsepower supercharged V-8 engine that delivers more muscle per mile than anything the original can dish out. Plus, with its tube frame and rear-wheel drive, there is simply no comparison. Drop in a nitrous oxide system in, and it’s nearly impossible to beat on the quarter mile.

New from Revell, is the re-release of the Chevy Beretta Pro Street kit # 85-7168 under their SSP (Selected Subject Program) reserved for classic kits. Upon inspecting all the parts I must say that they are exquisitely molded in white. The car body is molded very clean with no sink marks to write home about. The clear parts are cleanly molded without flowing marks and have this slight flexibility unlike the more thick and brittle clear parts from other kits. Something that got my attention was the nice patterns on the vinyl tires. They are also free of the ugly seam line that usually the tires come with. The molding is superb with a very realistic look.

The decal sheet is nicely and colorful printed with no color bleeding. The white stripes looks solid enough to look nice over the black finished body. The Chevy Beretta Pro Street from Revell must be available at your local hobby shop at the time of this entry.
