A bit off topic, but I wonder- the tires on the Monogram Black Widow reissue are very nice, but a bit too large for most applications, diameter wise. I'd love to see them tool up a set of tires like that in a size more close to what's used on the existing Deuce kits.

For me I hope they don't just throw some junk wheels and tires in there and call it good ...we've had enough of them that didn't follow the box art. ;)

Hopefully, this will be a non-issue, since the tires on the Rat Roaster are manufactured by Coker. So the big tire brands really don't have much say in it as far as licensing. That's all up to Corky.

I say it again. It could yield quite a few parts for a Milner Deuce build.


I never noticed that till now. Guess I should pay attention more. It's funny how " wrong " milners coupe was when the movie came out, but it's one of the most recognizable, replicated and inspirational coupes built.

He means the cycle fenders Chuck, not stock fenders.

"I see" said the blind man. Should have been obvious, but I guess I had a bit of a lapse on that one. B)

It's Rat ROASTER, not rod, so it's not a throw together "rat" (or high end build made to look ratty). As far as interest, it looks to have wheels and some equipment we haven't seen often in kit form and should be a welcome kit for building and bashing.

Watched the Drag-n-wagon episode today. Saw the Revell 48 Ford Woody during the recap, and it looked like box art for the Roaster in the background.

They had the box art at IHOBBY. My best guess based on the conversation with them is late 4th quarter 2012 or 1st quarter 2013. We may know more when the mid-year announcements come out in the few weeks.

Those front tires look exactly like those in the Revell '32 Ford Orange Crate kit.

It will be interesting to see how Revell handles the rear tires, not to mention the Weiand blower and the trunk/rumble seat area.

I wonder what kind of numbers the publicity from this will generate. You don't see a lot of model car stuff on TV, I hope this stirs up some positive sales for the LHSs. I'm still a little upset with Mr. David over all the insulting of the Miata during the Banshee build but his promotion of our hobbie tempers that a bit.
I want one.

While this kit may have its pro's and cons, I cannot BELIEVE the negativity from you fellas and you haven't even SEEN the kit yet ! I'm beginning to think that model car people are the most negative group of people on the PLANET !For my part, I just want to give kudos to REVELL for giving us a model like this, whether you want to build it 'outta da box' or you're going to buy it for parts....And LAY OFF THE HAIR !....Go to a model show / swap meet, us model car guys hain't got a THING on the rest of the world when it comes to hair styles ( or lack thereof....)

I'm looking forward to this kit as well. Having followed the buildup of the Rat Roaster from start to finish, plus having some inside information about the build that wasn't aired (like how the exhaust is actually routed), I plan on getting one to build as the car actually is. I'm also planning to get at least 1 more to build with some of the suggestions i made on the Gearz site before the color and engine were officially announced (for those who saw the engine reveal episode, I was the nutcase that suggested a Pontiac! :rolleyes: )

Naw, the party's overflowing towards the front, too. :D All kidding aside, I find Mr. David to be one of the most likable TV personalities of all the "car shows", regardless of his hairstyle.

I've heard that he is likable and fan friendly and yes the "rat roaster" IS a high dollar car. But when you got it, spend it as life is short.

When someone mentions so many "32 Ford kits it brings to mind a friend of mine. He actually has 109 DIFFERENT '32 Ford kits. :o Or at least the box art is different. Needless to say he likes '32 Fords !!!

Stacey is one of us, what's goimg on here? I like his show and love this hot rod. I can't wait to get my hands on one and the first will be pretty much box stock and green. Lay off our brother hot rodder and model builder and his hair. ( by the way, I am BALD and I don't care.)
