Ahh. That sounds decent then! I would rather scratchbuild the trailer too lol.

Sounds like a very fun scratchbuilding project! For the canvas tent material, you could use canvas tent material from an old tent. 

Great Question.

You could use the trailer from the Revell dirt cars (V8 60 and Kurtis midget)as a good starting point. 

 

I'm not sure what a midget racer trailer has to do with a camper...


In Topic: Which is best AMT or Revell gen 5 camaro

Thanks; HP. I guess I need to do both. I will start with AMT.

Skip the AMT. It's only a promo style kit with some crummy vinyl interior. The Revell kit is full detail.

First and foremost, I want to say that my statement was an educated guess and not an absolute. But if by that point they had already spent all of the time and money to get "most of the work done," don't you think they would have released it despite Lindberg's own offering? Just like Revell, AMT, and Lindberg did when they all released versions of the then-new F-150 in the late 90's?

They mad most of the work done with the 80s Cutlass and never released it. But it's Revell. Who knows wtf the deal is.

The Lindberg CV kit first came out sometime around 1998. No way Revell had "most of the work done" back then.

 

Why not?

 

Yes! The last gen bodied Crown Vics would be so much more desirable! But again, these are toys aimed at kids. Revell didn't have the model builder community in mind with it. If there is anything at all worthy in the kit, I'll get one. But it is entirely unlikely.
