Review and Photos by Tom Schaefer Tom Schaefer

All real-leather seats, air conditioning and the smoothest suspension around; yeah the Expedition is the perfect way to go… to jail. For some law enforcement agencies in the U.S., load and passenger capacity are more important than speed. The Ford Expedition Special Service Vehicle (SSV) is perfect for those agencies. Its reliability, towing capacity, and passenger capacity are especially useful to the Border Patrol.

For the Modeler: This is the SnapTite Ford Expedition Police SSV 1-25 Scale Revell Model Kit #85-1972 Review. It is a skill level 1 model – no glue required. This kit (#85-1972) contains 46 pieces, is molded in black plastic with chrome, clear and transparent red and smoke tinted parts, and has soft black vinyl tires. It also includes illustrated directions and a colorful sticker set. Finished dimensions are: Length: 8-1/4″, Width: 3-1/2″  and Height: 3-1/4″. I was a little hesitant about reviewing this model, because I really wasn’t expecting much. Generally 1/25 scale snapper kits tend to be low quality and toy like, with not much to offer. I was pretty surprised with the quality and extras that Revell included.  While not my usual type of kit, It looked like a quick, fun build. This kit features an easy to assemble screw on chassis, a painted roof light bar, interior security screens and storage compartments.

Covered in this Review:  If you want to perfect your build; basic construction; preparing parts for better finishing; alternate assembly sequence suggestions for fit and ease of finishing; paint selection and applications;  part orientation; test fitting; suspension construction and detailing; handling delicate parts; contest model considerations; detailing realistic turn signals; adding highlights to the interior;  sticker location and application; are all fully examined in this pictorial 9 page, full-color Step-by-Step review.
