Yes, it's reissued in another limited editor (3000?) again. Maybe someone else can chime in with the specifics.

You can also contact MODEL ROUND UP. I don't know why I've taken so long in building one of these, but I do know I would like to have more of them stocked on my shelves.

I guess that's what fuels STYRENE ADDICTION, great kits like this one.

Thanks for the great review of this kit, Doctor! I've been wanting to buy one for long time, but I never had information, what the box includes. It looks and sounds to a very nice kit, so needs to get one.

Not to mention this kit is not a new issue..it's been around continuously for at least 15 years or more...


If you look carefully, you'll see that the Review section is not only for reviewing new kits, it's for reviewing all kits.

And Casey...different people may have a different take on a given kit, so there's no harm done if someone reviews a kit that someone else has already reviewed.

Why start a new topic when there's already a three-page review topic regarding the very same kit, including lots of images of what's inside?: http://www.modelcars...=1


New issue...gotta get me one!

The reason for these "unboxing" videos is to quickly show what is inside of a kit, it doesn't have to be a new kit, of course, but these are often triggered by what I find and compulsively buy at the store. Also, I am staying away from the formal or thorough review of the kits . . . I leave that to other folks.

I just bought a couple more of these.

Thanks Virgil! Looks like a great model to build! I'll have to beg MaMa to let me buy it! :lol:
Never ever saw the other thread on this kit. I imagine there are others that have not either! :)

Johnny, that other thread was two years old, so you're not the only one who didn't know it was there.

Better yet, why aren't redundant posts combined to make the info easier to find for fourm members?


Are you volunteering to be the guy who spends many, many hours going through hundreds and hundreds of old topics and combining all the redundant posts? And to keep on doing that day after day after day?

I'll tell you what... I have better things to do with my time.

Thanks for sharing this with us, Doc! This is one kit that I've REALLY wanted for quite some time now, but have yet to get my hands on...

I personally find it "fun and exciting" to open up a kit and go through it's contents. A lot of the newer kits on my shelves have been taken out of the box, gone through, and then neatly put back, multiple times.

I hope this doesn't come off as a little strange, but... when I have to spend some time on the potty, I almost always bring a kit or two in with me and "un-box" it. Sometimes, it's just to check out the cool and brand new parts, and other times, it's to brainstorm and come up with ideas for when I finally do build it.

There's no magazine rack in my bathroom. LOL... I usually just check out my models instead! My wife finds it to be quite humorous... and definitely weird. :lol: ;)

Hmmm...got to worry about losing parts in the loo or sink, though... I've learned from experience not to open kits on the sofa or bed, because parts disappear on their own or the furkids abscond with them...

You may not have been able to find it in your LHS, but this kit and the others Galaxie Limited makes (sedan delivery, dragster, and trailers) have always been available directly from them via their website.

a new version of this car will be out in the fall as a five window coupe. I got that from a very reliable source while at a Buick car show/Lionel train exhibit Sunday.


Fall of 2012? :D Regardless of when, it's good to see Galaxie Ltd. putting out something new, or at least a modified reissue...though a '41 Chevy coupe would be a nice "next" version.

It's my day off, and I just found this thread. Read all 10 pages. I had thought about this one for awhile, but now it's definitley on my 'must have' list. The fact that it has a detailed Blue Flame 6 is enough for me. And I probably won't build it for several years but I'll have it :)
