A product review of this model appeared in the April 1995 issue of the S/Sn3 Modeling Guide.
The kit consisted of a one-piece injected styrene body (pre-painted black and lettered), a separate underframe, and three sprues of detail parts. As built per instructions, the car weighs a light 3.2oz. The project was started by John Craft, owner of Chesapeake Models, but it was under-capitalized, so eventually Des Plaines Hobbies bought it out (November 1995) and brought the car to market. It was the 1995 NASG Convention car.
