Okay , you don't like it. I get that. But look at all those cool parts, and here's a bonus, if you do like it:
http://staceydavid.c...cts/rat-roaster all of your build questions answered (what color do I paint this or that?) and detail?

What I'm wondering, is how far Revell is going to go with this? Will they faithfully copy all the parts? Or will this just be an extension of their (already great) bunch of '32 kits)

Can you just imagine all of those gorgeous parts rendered in Revell quality we've come to know?

On other forums it was said this was an 'all-new' kit.

The 1:1 must have had two different engine builds..some of the pics I've seen show a hood w/ portholes down the middle.

Whether or not you agree with the overall look and details of the car it is an awesome collection of parts. Backwards compatibility with the existing '32's doesn't look like too much of an issue with the exception of the rear panel below the rumble seat. On the 1:1 it has a molded inset license plate mount that extends bel;ow the panel line...

I grabbed a bunch of shots from the site which summarizes many of the keynote details of the Rat Roaster. Have a look:

The air cleaners and stacks are removable and the car can be run with or without the hood and hood sides.

Apparently there are enough exterior and interior changes that Revell is treating this as a "new tool".

" Okay, YOU don't like it. I get that" I like it, I like It. I've just seen a bunch of people jumping in (on other boards) saying they don't like it. And I guess really, I don't get it. You don't like roadsters ? switch to any other of those fine bodys Revell offer us. WOW! Switchers all over again.

I have little interest in a RR model, but I can see a ton of potential in the seats, wheels and tires, Moon style fuel tank, and motorcycle fenders alone.

I only hope there is a figure of Mr. David included, accurate right down to the Middle Ages helmet hair. :D

Kudos to Revell for producing a specific hot rod, and not another generic rod and/or custom. I think this kit will be a great seller for Revell, and hopefully helps them continue to build upon the success of their annual(?) model contest, too.

Would it be too much to ask for a 2 'n 1 version or a follow-up boxing with some period-correct stuff like a quick change rear end, drum brakes, and a 4-71 blower and maybe a bit more conventional interior? That would be sweet...

I would be very interested in a kit of this car. With a few changes and the flathead from the sedan kit, I think this would make a decent traditional rod.

I'd buy it and I like the fenders too as not too many Deuce kits have them.

i'm not going to pass it up because it might not appeal to me OVERALL... nothing that can't be substituted for something else or painted in a different scheme. Stacey is one of the few TV personalities that seem to be genuinely nuts about cars.

I say it again. It could yield quite a few parts for a Milner Deuce build.

This is a great opportunity - lots of great parts and a cool car built as is. This looks like it could be a win-win-win for Revell, OOB builders and kit bashers. Let's keep our fingers crossed for another quality kit!

:lol: Not quite a "mullet" huh?

I'd be happy if the wheels and "Moon" tank were faithful replicas...

LOVE THE ROD! But it's NOT a "rat roadster"... It's a high $$$$$$ hot rod!

Naw, the party's overflowing towards the front, too. :D All kidding aside, I find Mr. David to be one of the most likable TV personalities of all the "car shows", regardless of his hairstyle.

I'll get one because of the parts box potential.
