2004 Pontiac GTO
Polar Lights No. 6402
Model Type: Injection-molded styrene snap kit
Molded Colors: Body color, clear, black
Scale: 1/25
MSRP: $17.99
Pros: Good body proportions
Cons: No engine-cover logos or gauge decals

Polar Lights' kit is part of its prepainted Great American Rides lineup.

The body proportions are right on and the molded details are perfect. The body is available in black, silver, yellow and red. The front and rear bumpers assemblies are separate units. The headlights and taillights are also prepainted pieces.

The engine features a nicely engraved fuel injection setup and serpentine belt assembly. The transmission is a nice version of the six-speed manual.

The chassis is well detailed, with separate front and rear independent suspension units. The tires have good tread detail but no sidewall detail. The kit comes with a custom set of Motegi-style five-spoke wheels and stock five-spoke Pontiac retro wheels. The stock wheels are plated in chrome, but the real things are brushed aluminum.

The platform-style interior has separate side panels with good engraving.

This is an excellent kit with a lot of detail for any kit, much less a snap. I'll be buying plenty of these kits to try different building styles.
