Folks, the new Revell "Limited Editon" '37 Ford kit is out, and it's a beauty. You can judge for yourself.

Those look great, Ryan . . .

Here's a picture a buddy on another forum posted which makes me want to dream up more possibilities with this kit:

I have the original issue of this truck, and I must say it appears that the sequal can in fact be better!

Does this kit come with two grilles, on the box it looks like the blue truck has the 37 grille and the yellow truck looks like it has a 38-39 truck grille in it, thanks in advance.

Oh Great! Now despite having about 4 of the original issue around, I'm now going to have to go out and get at least a couple of this issue for the new stuff. It's tough being a styrene junkie..... :P :lol:

Virg,

I'm glad you opened my peepers to this kit. There's one here at my local HL and I kept passing it by because the overall look of the truck itself wasn't appealing to me. But, NOW, just the decals and the surf board alone would be worth the price of the kit. lol I'm also sure that once I get the kit home and go through it more I will find that it is after all appealing to me and I will find a project hidden somewhere that this truck just can't wait to become.
