I know I promised an update sooner than this, but I've been very busy lately, so much so that I haven't even done any more on my Ford LTL 9000 build for about a month. Anyway, I just went through the names both here and also where I have this posted on SA's forum as well, and there are about 45 names so far on the list. I will continue to take names until Labor Day weekend, Sept 6, 2010. I will then send the email to Revell during the week following, sometime before Sept. 11, 2010. Anyone who has not already added their name and would like to see these kits possibly reissued, please add you name to the list. Thanks again to everyone for their support! :)

Jim, I'm very happy you have a better memory than I do! :rolleyes: The C.R.S. kicked in again, and I totally forgot about it AGAIN! I wrote myself a little note this time so I don't forget again, and I will get the names gathered from both sites I have this listed on and get an email to Revell ASAP. Sorry I've been dropping the ball on this. :D

Matthew,

Any progress on this??

On another note I would be interested to know if anyone is working on 1/16 trucks, trailers or aftermarket parts?

Mathew
Really no point chasing this up, They don't have the moulds anymore, I believe they where sold to a RC company back in the 90's sometime, and if they where going to re release them it would have been done by now,
The RC company did release a couple of RC trucks, but these are no longer made either, I have a feeling that they have gone belly up, what happened to the moulds from there is anyones guess


Dave

You have seen the Henrickson HT300 suspension, that I have done, now I have done the true Alcoa to suit the Monogram rims, and working on the HAS460 suspension at the moment,
Have also just started a new COE conversion to suit the W900 kit, the model I will keep a secret till it is ready for mock up, but I think it will be worth while

I am also looking for drawings or information on a Pete 362 if anyone has it B)

Nope, Jim, no word, and from what Tony was saying, that sounds like a good reason why.

Tower hobbies already has the 1/16 Pete listed on their website as "order pending". If memory serves the listed retail is around $71.00.....sure beats the EBAY prices.....I know i will be getting a stack of them for posterity! My only hope is that the body set is molded white, like the last German Revell re-issue..........Matt

Yep.... With Tower Hobbies owning Monogram, when they get it everyone else will have it available.

I went to my local Hobby Store and told them how much Tower had it for, so to keep me as a returning customer they beat the Online Price. So I have at least one on hold whenever it comes out.
