So the Mustang is stock or PPV 2n1?, thats cool


It looks like stock and highway patrol are the two options, but they are not very different from one another. I see a separate sprue which might contain some small police-specific bits, but other than the light bar for the roof, there are not many "extra" parts for the HP version.

And no mention of the 49 Merc Woodie? I am appalled!


Nor the two additional Foose branded kits. :lol: :lol: I'm happy about that. :lol:

Casey, I think I spotted the police item tree in the pics, I have plenty of extra parts to make it a PPV, no worries there :lol:

Until now I was under the impression the Mustang notch was going to be a drag car- now I'm kinda glad to see it appears to be mostly stock. I can always convert it into a drag car if I want. B)

I'm also interested in the Jeep Rubicon and '77 Trans Am Smokey and the Bandit...didn't see anything on the flyer, but am wondering if they are styrenified diecast like the '68 Mustang and '70 Challenger kits were..the diecast Jeep and T/A were pretty good, I've heard.

Looking forward to the '57 Chevy convertible also, a nice tri-5 variation, and the '69 Camaro ZL1 is a nice variation also... Looking forward most to the Mustang LX and Cuda (though I have 5 of the Lindberg '71s and 10 MPC '70-74s).

Oh yeah, the Jeep, that looks cool, I know I will be getting that one as well

I am guessing the SATB 77 T/A is just a reissue with Bandit decals

I think that is the case with these two. I recall Bob Downie praising the '77 T/A, and Jon Cole's(?) recent build here seemed to confirm Bob's positive comments. I think the Jeep Rubicon was the Lara Croft "Tomb Raider" die-cast body kit in its last incarnation? I think it has a very nice set of off-road tires included, too.

So you are saying the saying the 77 T/A is going to be a new tooling?

The jeep kit is awsome! Glad they're finally releasing it in plastic. Hope..but doubt, they'll tool up more parts for it.

2) 1/25 '69 Chevy Camaro ZL-1 -- I hope we get a proper set of exhaust manifolds in the modified reissue, but I expect the headers and chambered exhaust system (probably most correct for this car, though) from the 427 Yenko kit will be included.


Stock cast iron manifolds would be a nice touch, as that's what they were delivered with. I beleive the chambered exhaust was standard on the ZL-1 and possibly the Z/28, and it was optional on others.

No. It appears to be based on the existing 1/25 scale die-cast '77 T/A kit, and from looking at the release flyer, I suspect both kits will still have die-cast bodies and will not be all-plastic.

'77 T/A:

It will be interesting to see how well the MPC and Monogram Fox Mustang parts kitbash with the LX.
