Also shown is the original issue model from 1964. Monogram turned out a beautiful product back then. So much care put into every detail right down to the instructions. The molds for the body were polished and this produced a kit you could assemble without painting the body which was a stumbling point for many builders. Enjoy.

Really nice work ! I always loved Monogram kits for the very reasons you mentioned...I'm happy to see their reproductions of the "Green Hornet", "Black Widow" and such.
I've been working on a reproduction of their '55 Chevy for some time now, using the "Badman" kit as the basis.

Thanks for the pics! From the box art you can't see the center rib that starts at top center and widens as it flows doiwn to the rear. I've been planning a bubble for my full custom 1/1 '64 Corvette convertible, and something like this might be a cool detail.
