Newest Revell 1/24 Snap Tite Models

When the guy in the brown truck stepped up at my doorstep with a package and I opened it, I knew immediately what I was going to do with its contents. This package came with the newest Snap Tite Build and Play model kit cars from Revell. I had to share this build with a bunch of young gentleboys from my church and see them in action.

There it was also, a recently released 1/25 2013 Challenger SRT8 and a 1/25 2013 Camaro  ZL1. While the smaller kids took care of the Snap Tite Audi R8 and Mustang 2015 GT, Luis took care of the Challenger SRT8. The new Audi R8 and Mustang 2015 Snap Tite kits have a level of challenge that require from young modelers a degree of motor, coordination and reading skills. Although I must say that the pictorial instructions are clear enough to allow even younger builders to join the fun. It took for the Snap Tite models some 20 to 25 minutes to put these kits together and in no time they were playing with their creations. These models are quite strong to withstand some hard play with them this is a great play value if you ask me.

Revell Challenger SRT8 Pre Painted

The 1/24 Challenger SRT8 is a more challenging project with an estimated build time of some 3 hours on the box. That’s exactly how look it took Luis to build this kit. This is a curbside model that still has some engine detail on the top side and it can be painted, hence the Testors┬ácolor numbers specified on the back of the box. Even though this is a much more sturdier than a regular model kit and having fully/freely movable wheels, this model does not holds the play value factor as the ones above. In no time rear view mirrors and other small delicate parts will be lost to the carpet monster. This is a great initiation model kit for a new model builder or a fun weekend build for us warriors. It does snap, but it is also recommended to secure those attaching points with glue.

My most sincere thanks to Revell USA for this set of review samples. These fellas had a great afternoon eating pizza and building a model kit for their first time in their lives. Kudos to Revell!

Note that a standalone review with pictures of the Camaro ZX1 will be posted soon.
