Revell 1/25 70 Mustang Boss 429
We currently have 1 in stock.
The 70 Boss 429 Mustang kit was first issued in 1982 as a stock only kit. It was reissued again in 1986 as a 2n1 street/stock kit and again in 1991 as the Boss 429. Now it’s 2005 and the latest version is out and it is the best one yet. Good looking new custom rims, all previous options, molded in white and can be built stock. It's a bit simplified, consistent with other Monogram muscle car releases of that time frame. The only major issue I have with it is the old style interior bucket and simplified chassis. Separate door panels would have been nice, but that’s a minor nit. It's a great kit of a great Muscle car.
Engine: The 15-18 piece 429 C.I. Boss V-8 engine is molded extremely well. It has an excellent level of detail typical of Monograms early 80’s releases. It can be built as the stock 429 or as a street machine with dual quads on a tunnel ram intake manifold.
Chassis: Part of the floor pan is molded with the chassis. The rest is molded as part of the interior bucket. There is no separate front suspension, it is molded as part of the chassis. The only separate parts are the front shocks. The rear suspension is separate but it is one piece. Four rear axle lifts are included for the street machine version. Two sets of rear shocks are included depending on whether you want the stock ride height or the lifted version. The exhaust system is a one piece dual exhaust which will require minor clean up of mold lines.
Wheels and Tires: Two sets of tires, and three wheel choices are included. Large diameter wheels with low profile tires are an excellent addition to this kit and they are very well done.
Interior: A bucket-style interior, with 2 piece front bucket seats, the rear seat and console are molded as part of the interior bucket. Separate arm rests are a nice touch. The dash is a well done one piece unit with a separate steering wheel.
Body: In a word “Beautiful”. No mold lines! No sink marks. Well done engraving overall.
Decals: Consist of 3 sets of license plates, engine compartment decals, two different Boss 429 decal sets and 2 stylized mustang graphics complete the sheet.
