What Mike said... November 14, 2018
Reviewer: Jay Williams from SILOAM SPRINGS, AR United States  
I'll add that the use of a '68 style washer fluid tank instead of the '69-'70 style is another glaring mistake that I see over and over, not just on this release. It's not a subtle difference, so I have no idea why this detail is so hard to get right. But like Mike said, it's great to see Cougars getting some attention. Nit-picking aside, it looks like a great model. Would love to see one with a 428CJ underhood, as well as additional colors.

Details getting better, but... November 13, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Banks from Portland, OR United States  
Still a few issues with the details on the Eliminator models.
- Underside on Eliminators was "slop gray", not red oxide.  Slop gray was mixed from waste paints, and generally appears as a dark slate color.
- Stone guard (that yellow spot behind the bumper, between the headlights) should be black, not body color.

There are other minor items as well, but those are the big ones that jump out.

I believe this model (being a Hemmings Muscle Machines model) is likely based on 0F91G534085, which was featured in HMM back in 2004:
https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/mus/2004/10/Quick-Cat---1970-Boss-302-Eliminator-Cougar/1280844.html

This car was sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in Jan 2018.  The original drivetrain for the car has been found, but I've been unable to contact the new owner regarding reuniting the car and drivetrain.

All in all, very pleased to see Eliminators getting some love :-)
