Please note that this kit comes with 6 pieces of part number 90. The instruction sheet on page 15 indicates all 6 of these parts are chrome plated. However, only 2 of the number 90 parts are chrome plated. The other 4 number 90 parts are in white plastic and not plated. All of the number 90 parts are identical in shape. You will need to use the 4 unplated number 90 parts to finish the model.

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.

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.
