I'm gonna hold off hoping Revell will pan some of Stacey's other projects for kit subjects until it is seen how well this kit does in the marketplace. That being said... I fully expect Revell to sell a ton of these kits, and yes, put me down for a Power Wagon kit. Even if it's stock-only, I've got enough junk in the spares box and a few aftermarket resources to build it as Sgt. Rock. B)

I know I'm up for quite a few Rat Roasters- I can use pretty much everything from the kit besides the Chevy engine for all kinds of projects.

I know it's not out quite out yet but was I the only one to see what must be a test shot or something on Gearz this week? It isn't that far from the original '32 Highboy kit, different interior tub, moon tank out front, big ol' Rat motor w/sprint style headers,windshield frame is different,& of course the fenders, & the "up in the clouds" stance. Can't wait 'til Revell gets the real McCoy to us.

I thought it had a mouse motor and isn't it called the Rat Roaster? Yeah I'm looking forward to it what ever it is.

Looks like a perfect candidate for the new Alclad candy colors!

Fellas,

The car looks like a AA/SR to me...raise the front suspension, change the tires, add a hood and redo the headers.

I'm glad somebody else came out and said that, because that is one idea I'm kicking around for it. :D

If you guys think there are a lot of 32 Ford kits you ought to get a load of just how many Messerschmitt Bf109 kits there are! Astronomical!

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.


well stated. totally agree

My mistake, like I said all I saw was about a 15-20 second view at the end of the show ( it has this much as a tag when my DVR records Raceday) & with the generic valve covers it jus' looked like a Rat.

That's too bad. I'm really curious if it's just a reissue of the highboy roadster street rod with a new engine and box art, or if this is actually a newly tooled kit with unique parts we haven't seen before.

From looking at the 1:1 car, I'd almost tend to think it was built intending to kit it, using Revell's existing body and chassis tooling and adding a new interior / seat sprue, plus one or two others of various details to finish it out.

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


I tend to believe it's an all new kit, too, as the trim on the body, the lightening holes around the seats, and the license plate recess would mean irreversibly modifying Revell's existing '32 Ford roadster body shell.

In the new Revell catalogue, the 40 Ford and the Model A pickup and tudor all have "new" written on them, but only "new" thing about them is the decals. This is why I'm not sure what Revell means when they throw the word "new" around. Let's hope for the best.

Well, those are 'new' in the sense they are new releases, not in the catalog for a while. As opposed to something called 'All-New'... :) In their advertising, they probably avoid using 'reissue' and 're-release' as the general public couldn't understand such terms.

From my IHobby Report out:

"Stacey David’s Rat Roaster - 1/25 – New tool based on Revell’s very nice 32 Ford. Too many mods needed to do a modified reissue. In my opinion, this may spread into early 3Q2012 given there are no test shots as yet"

I want to buy a few kits, one to build and a couple for parts (especially the Halibrand wheels).
