AMT is on a roll with quite a few new releases scheduled for the first and second quarters of the year. I was able to get my hands on a couple of them
First up is the "Heavy Chevy" 1970 Impala Custom SS Hardtop. It's a Special Release that includes a print suitable for framing. You can build it either in stock, custom or drag racing versions. The stock engine is a 454 cu. in. V-8 with a 4bbl carb. You can boost that up to a tri-carb version or you can add fuel injection. For the custom version, the front and rear are restyled. There is a set of wide Goodyear tires and two complete sets of custom mag wheels. You can add custom pipes and a limousine rear window. All in all it looks like another winner from AMT.
Next is the Piranha Super Spy Car. This is also a Special Release that includes a print suitable for framing. Designed by Gene Winfield, it includes a whole bunch of goodies for spy enthusiasts. Things like concealed rockets, a spy arsenal, a parachute and dual long-range flamethrowers. It also sports gull wing doors and custom wheels. AMT printed all new decals for this kit. It also includes pad printed tires and a 12 page full color booklet. It also looks like a fine kit.
