Revell kit #85-8883 Visible V-8 Engine.
If you have this version of our Visible V-8 Engine kit there is a mistake on page 6 of the instructions. On parts #150 and 151 we have identified these as "Clear" parts. They are NOT clear parts. These parts are charcoal gray and they are on one of the charcoal gray trees. You will find them there.
Please be sure to check the charcoal gray tree for these parts.

GLOW IN THE DARK PAINT
Due to difficulty of application, Revell Germany NIGHT COLOR Glow in the Dark acrylic paint is not suitable for children under 8 years of age. It is recommended for use by experienced builders.
Night Color paint is purposely formulated with a very thick consistency. Prior to use, dilute with a very small amount of water and gently stir.
Night Color paint can be applied with a regular brush and quickly dries to a permanent finish. Apply generously to model and let dry. If desired, a second coat may be applied.
Blotchy appearance is normal, and necessary, in order to achieve Glow in the Dark effect. To ensure permanence, allow to dry at least 3 days.
Use ordinary soap and water to clean brushes and any spills that may occur.
Night Color Glow in the Dark acrylic paint casts a greenish glow which is easily recharged with light.

This is not a manufacturing defect. Clear area in the center of the part has no effect on kit appearance as it is not visible after taillight panel is inserted in part #120 Rear Panel.
