For the Modeler: This review is based on Revell # 85-4190; it is the 1/25 scale Foose ’65 Chevy Impala. This kit is skill level 2 for the intermediate builder and contains 142 parts. The kit is molded in White, Chrome, Clear and Clear Red and has Vinyl Tires. This kit has seen multiple box-art packages over the years and is a Reissue (Re-Pop), Revell calls this a “conversion”. The chassis is stamped 1996 so it has been around at least 18 years. The only parts special for the “Foose Designed” kit seems to be 2 new trees plus tires. You get Tires and Wheels, Valve Covers and Air Cleaner, Front Suspension and the custom decals. But you do get all the original kit parts from previous issues. You get a nicely detailed 409 V8 Big Block although the real car had a Small Block. The chassis is simple and clean. You get 2 wheel choices, Stock and Foose. The interior is nice with a multiple part tub. The body is crisp and nicely detailed, but to do the Foose version you must remove the molded on Stock emblems. The decals are extensive and give the Foose stripes and tags. The interior decals include all dash gauges. This is a great kit that begs you to go hit the aftermarket and super-detail it.
