I've heard from Ed Sexton of Revell that the Rat Roaster is to be released in December. However seeing as I have PLENTY to build, it really doesn't matter to me when it is released.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies about the rumble seat and the picture of the the model from the back guys. I thought it probably wouldn't have a rumble seat as the easiet thing for Revell to do would be to use the old highboy body. I guess it'd be pretty straightforward to use the trunk from a 5 window kit and the rumble seat from an AMT kit as suggested by Ace-Garageguy.

Which AMT kits have the rumble seats? I've a got the American Graffitti kit but I haven't opened it up yet. Any chance of one of those rumble seats for my cabriolet Bill? I haven't got any AMT kits (other than the one just mentioned) and since the trunk area is open on the Replicas and Miniatures cabriolet body it'd be good to have one in there. I'm not too bothered about having one in the Stacey David rat roadster - but if I'm building one for a competition I may change my mind...

Cheers,

Jim

As soon as I verify this doesn't have those wide front tires like Revell's other 32 kits, I'm in for a couple. Should be a good roadster kit with some good parts for the swap box

Given Revell's huge collaborative projects with Gearz I would say that they would have the Rat Roaster 100% accurate to the real car. At least, I hope they do...

Is that guitar ,out of the Dodge Magnum wagon?


I haven't seen any other images of this built up kit showing the custom guitar, but it's not the same as the guitar found in the Revell Dodge Magnum:

On Gearz last night, Stacey David announced the winners of the last contest, said there would be another, and had a built Revell Model of his Rat Roaster with what looked like slim front tires. Couldn’t see a lot of detail on it though.

I would have to buy at least 3. One to build straight out of the box,one to build modified and one just for kitbashing.I would also like to see a scale figure of Stacey.

It's up on Revell's site.

I wonder if anyone has actual pictures of the model or parts.

I just watched the episode of Stacey David's Gearz called "The FinalTouch" which reviews the full build of the Rat Roadster. A view of the model is actually shown and it sure looked close to the real thing to me.  I will definitely be buying more than one if only for the parts.

The episode also showed winners of the second Revell model car contest. Congratulations to those winners.

Happy Model Car  Building New Year
