Bought the latest reissue a few weeks ago.  Looks like a good kit.  There are extra suspension  and engine parts not mentioned in the instructions though.

I am hoping to build it similar to a Willys pickup I saw at a Goodguys show a couple of years back.

Hector, thanks for posting pics of whats in the box. Looking forward to seeing a build of that little black monster in the last picture. That thing is scary nasty!

I picked one up myself. Pretty nice kit other than the horrid engine. It looks nothing like a ford cammer. I am building the austin right now and it's pretty much the same kit. I had to heavily modify the motor to make it look presentable. When I build the willys I will swap engines.

I love the lace decals. Hopefully Revell will reissue more kits with similar decals.

My Hobby Shop ordered the Revell and the Monogram but they haven't arrived yet-- I've been waiting for these kits for a long time (early 90's)- the only problem is they'll cost 40 bucks!  OUCH.  I want 10 of them but I won't spend that.  I do have a bunch of R/c new in box stuff I'd trade for them.

Does anyone have or is anyone willing to take and post a pic of the second, chromed axle?

Now I see how they tagged on the extra chrome parts, including the second (dropped) front axle.

 

Please Revell, replace those awful '80s wheels!  :wacko:

The instructions call to use the chrome dropped front axle but there is a non-plated front axle right next to the rear differential half on the parts tree that is not mentioned in the instructions.  Revell definitely needs to replace those lame 1980's wheels.

They'll be in the upcoming re-release due out at the end of this month. There's supposed to be decals for a panel fade style scheme as well.

 

edit: only pic I can find of the other scheme.  It's a scan out of the paper catalog.  It's tiny...

Thank you for your interest in my work. I do not know if My lace art is in the kit, However I can provide you with a set. Thank You. madmodelr@aol.com
