Revell 1929 Roadster--Why the change in skill level?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My daughter really enjoyed building a Mustang ragtop Snap-Tite. We want to build a glue kit together, and pick one that will be relatively easy. After reading the Scale Auto review of the 1929 Ford Model A Roadster special edition (85-4322) I figured we had found the perfect kit. Perfect fit, and the only con was related to whitewall decals.

The thing is, I have an opportunity to get a different one literally for free. It's the 1929 Model A Roadster 2'N1. It sure seems to be a reboxing of the same kit (same parts count, both options are high boy or channeled, etc.) with different decal options, but the Special Edition is skill 3 and the "78B" is skill level 5. Is this due to a change in Revell's system (did they go from 1-3 to 1-5?), or is there something in the newer kit that I need to watch out for?
