Monogram / Revell 1956 Chevy Model Kits

 

 

This is a Revell / Monogram 1956 Chevy.

I've built a few of these kits before and like most Monogram kits (my favorites) it's an easy build. The only issue I had is the front bumper did not fit as well as I would have liked, but I shimmed it a bit and made it fit better.

The engine allows for two options - a dual carbs setup as I did - or a GMC blower supercharger. The hood is marked on the inside if you want to cut open the hood and add an included hood scoop.

I chose the dual carbs because I really didn't want to cut open the hood and mess up the clean lines of the body. I don't know if the blower will work if the hood is closed so if you use that engine option - you may have to cut open the hood.

Stock exhaust manifolds are included but I chose to use the optional headers. Stock shocks are included for the rear suspension, but spring load leveling shocks are are an option which I used. The differential has a stock end cover or a chrome Quick-change option which I also used.

There are lift-blocks for the rear leaf springs if for some reason you wanted to raise the rear of the car.

This is more a less a custom build for me and I never would have built it as a factory stock car. Even though that seems possible with the kit.

The interior is all one piece tub excapt for the front seats (bench or optional bucket seats), and the dash which is separate. There is some fine engraving on the interior, but it can be faint (or more in scale it appears to me). These is an included roll bar if you go the street machine / race car route.

The hood has a functional beit crude hinge to open and shut it. I used the option but the hood would not stay in the open / up position by itself. However - this does help keep the hood from falling off accidently if you are handing the model.

One set of tires is i all you get. There is a set or "Turbine" style crome wheels, which I used, but stock hubcaps are also included.

The front headlights are clear plastic. The rear tailllights are all one piece of chrome, so you have to paint the red portion yourself.

The body is well done in Monogram's traditional thick plastic (something I like). The emblems are very fine / faint (again, probably more in scale than other kits). There is a hood emblem but I left it off, not wanting to break up the smooth body design that I like.

I enjoyed building this kit once again. Aside fron the front bumper issue the rest of the kit just falls together.
