I would like to see a convertible to build Angelics red convertible cuda from the movie dark shadows. That's a gorgeous car.

I can assure you no metal axle rods will be included with the forthcoming Revell kit.  :D

 

Seriously, though, I think the Revell 1/25 '70 Hemi 'Cuda will surpass the 1/25 MPC kit(s) in every way, save for maybe some minor areas on the body.  :)

Yep, from the test shot I saw, this kit will make the original MPC kits look sick.

A convertible variant would render the existing 1/24 Monogram '71 kit almost obsolete, but to some that'd be a good thing. Maybe the old 1/24 tooling is getting worn out, at least for the hardtop body specific inserts(?)? I think the Nash Bridges version was a recent (2000?) modification, but the original kit dates back to 1983 or so IIRC.

 

I can see a modified reissue convertible a few years down the road, though, and if the hardtop is spot on, it shouldn't have any trouble leaving the 1/24 '71 kits in it's wake.

I see myself building a Gran Coupe out of one of these.....Already have a resin flat hood for it.

Are you going to cast it?  I want a flat hood for mine, I plan on a 6 banger for my build.

Just cut the flat hood out of the AMT 1974 barracuda snap kit.

 

Thats what I did to make my Sox + Martin sixpack hood for my original MPC kit

I swear I heard mention of this kit being reissued later this year, so maybe an intentional coincidence in Round2's part.

To be honest, I didn't know it wasn't currently avail. I probably have 4 or 5 of them so I haven't been looking fror one either.

 

They are super easy to find at swap meets in the $5 to $10 range . Or worst case, buy one of the assembled 'promos' . it's the same kit just molded in red and pre-assembled.

Hopefully it will have clear windows and not be molded in yellow again.

Well, got the newest release info today, it's not slated for June :( .  But the Miss Deal did get moved into a May release date, so that's something to look forward to. 67 Vette gets bumped back to June instead.  Miami Vice Daytona gets moved up to April. 

 

Here's what's being listed for June as of now - note these can change things do get bumped up, so it could end up in June. 

 

June-

 

Snap Expedition Police version

1/24 Original Mini Cooper (Revell Germany)

64 Impala Foose

67 Corvette Convertible.

Yup, snap 74 Barracuda is slated for reissue.  MPC #799.  No other info at this point other than kit #.

Were the windows tinted on the last issue of the '74 Snap/promo?

IIRC... I don't have the promo, but the snap kit version did IIRC.

OK, I'll go there. We all saw pics of the early mock-ups way back when, and while the models weren't perfect, it didn't look like there were a whole lot of things that Revell would need to fix. Despite that, we're still stuck playing the wait-n-see game as far as a realistic release date goes. Maybe this summer, maybe not. Casey's probably right about September.

I keep thinking about that former member who was data-gathering for Aoshima regarding the prospect of issuing a '70 'Cuda of their own. He claimed they could have theirs on the market well before Revell's got released. I'm kinda wishing they had tried...

I'm glad they did not.  I'd much rather wait for one far more affordable.  If they were serious anyway they would still do it.

I was told last week from person at Revell that the cuda was to be released between november or december of this year from what he told me on the phone they want to make sure that revell gets it right this time.

I would rather it be late and right,,,,, as opposed to early and inaccurate.

 

Not like I need it right now anyway.

From what I was told Revell wants this one to be right so they are taking the time to make sure it is. And the person from Revell told me on the phone that they have someone with a Cuda of that year and have talked to a few cuda owners so lets hope that they have did this one right third time the charm??
