I like what I see, I'm digging the 57 Ford Custom, but I have no interest in the 50 Olds. really happy to see the R8 Spyder in a Revell USA box. The GMC Pickup with the plow looks like fun. I like the list but where's the 2012 Boss 302 and 2012 Camaro ZL-1?

I do have on major beef though, we have absolutely no need for another Enzo kit. there's 3 out there already. (Tamiya, Fujimi, and Revell full detail). The car is aged. and is not as popular as it was 5-6 years ago. There's plenty of other Ferrari's out there that have not been kitted, like the 599 GTO, and the new FF. I don't understand the need for a snap Enzo kit. unless Ferrari really pushed Revell for it.

Somebody at R/M has been listening to the modelers. There goes my modeling budget, and that's just the first half of the year. That 50 Olds has has been an extremely high priority ever since the metal bank came out, and that 57 Ford in base form...I will be building dirt trackers for sure.

...I've known the Stacy David car was in the works for a while... I hope they get it right,I don't really care for the 1:1, but that kit would have serious donor potential if they do up all the stuff it would take to make it correct. ...


Likewise for me, it's really rather ugly, but were it to be done to resemble the TV car it would be a serious and much needed update. But the 5-window came up short in several respects so I'm not holding my breath. It's interesting, none the less, that in the case of the Rat Roaster they have stuck their necks seriously into the wind by featuring a large photo, allying themselves with the show itself via the contest, etc. Frankly, if they just got the motor and wheels right I'd be very pleased and, as you point out, would be bought in quatity as a donor car. (Still, I can dream about a proper I-beam front axle, stock firewall, deleted air bags and single bar grill brace, etc., etc. can't I?)

Also worth noting, as I have before, how Revell's new releases are numerically dominated by cars and trucks .

I work for one of the major hobby distributors (my participation on the board is purely as a modeler, I'm not here to represent the company). Lets just say that I know people who know people... And those people are probably having dinner and a few drinks in Chicago right now...

And dinner and a few drinks in Chicago is not necessarily a bad thing...

Indeed. Word is out that there is not exactly a shortage of either in the windy city.

I do have on major beef though, we have absolutely no need for another Enzo kit. there's 3 out there already. (Tamiya, Fujimi, and Revell full detail). The car is aged. and is not as popular as it was 5-6 years ago. There's plenty of other Ferrari's out there that have not been kitted, like the 599 GTO, and the new FF. I don't understand the need for a snap Enzo kit. unless Ferrari really pushed Revell for it.


From the other Revell new releases thread:

"As a level setter to the overall market, Revell did say their biggest selling kits are Snaptite and wear the bow tie emblem."

Snap kits sell, and kids and adults recognize a Ferrari when they see it. They don't care if it's and Enzo, F50, or a GTO, but if it's red and looks racy, young boys will probably recognize it as being a Ferrari, associate it with speed and going fast, and want it.

I was already stoked about the Rat Roaster, and the fact it's a new tool only whets my appetite more. My only reservation is that I hope Revell engineers it to be backwards-compatible with its other '32 kits. Failure to do so would be a VERY foolish move on the company's part, IMO.

I'd love to see that too, but if it isn't exactly backwards-compatible with Revell's other Deuce kits, I think I'm brave enough to try making a kitbash work. B)

Since the Revell folks seem to be reading this forum, I just say it...

We will need the EMPI Imp next so we can put it next to the Meyers Manx Round2 is releasing!

thanks rob hall. now it looks like ill have to buy at least two of them to make a longbed


Somebody already makes one, so save yourself a lot of work. It was discussed in the Resin section this past winter, IIRC.

Also, I think the AMT (ex-MPC) GMC is the only kit in 1/25 with the Fleetside bed, and it has those funky bed-side storage door lines engraved into it. The Revell (ex Monogram) 1/24 GM C-10 kits are well done, but typical of early '80s Monogram, with an interior bucket and bench seat molded as one, with very undetailed door panels. However, the pickup's bed was very nicely done, unlike the MPC GMC's. I think the Chevy and GMC grilles and tailgates can be straight swapped on the ex-Monogram 1/24 kits, too.
