Harley-Davidson is known for making some very beautiful motorcycles and in my opinion Revell has done them justice with this model kit. Even though this kit was produced in the nineties, almost twenty years later it was still fun and entertaining to build. I found while building this kit myself going back to my childhood days listening to that sweet rumble sound of my father’s Harley Davidson.

For the Modeler: This 1:8 scale Revell skill level 2 Harley-Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic SnapTite kit #7302 is long out of production but you can still find these kits easily at online auctions and garage sales. This kit was molded in black, grey, chrome, clear, red, and amber. To add a realistic touch the tires and the spark plugs with wires are also rubber giving them the curves they would have on the actual motorcycle. This kit was missing was the windshield and decal set but that shouldn’t stop you from building it. To build this kit no special tools are needed since it is a snap together, but with some tools and a little imagination; you can do wonders with this kit. Dimensions are 12” long, 6 3/8” high and 3 5/8” wide.
