Overall Rating       Good kit, but with some problems.
Comments First thing i noticed about this kit was the overall size of it, its alot bigger than say the Back to theFuture delorean kit for example. If you want this kit to look any thing like the one from the film you're gonna need to do a fair bit of painting and detailing but how far you go with it is up to you. Also i advise painting the whole kit as the parts will look too plastic like if left alone, esp the chrome parts, I advise spraying them black then dry brushing silver. Also the back window will block out any detailed painting so only paint the back interior with basic block colors as they will hardly be seen (something i learned the hard way!). Overall a very enjoyable kit to build and allows you to put in as much detail as you desire which you are going to have to do if you want it to look like the real deal!
