Rumoured future Revell issues..
Posted 16 July 2007 - 09:15 AM
This is all from a VERY reliable source who has worked with Revell for 2 years to get this reissue out.
You know the drill,,,,,,I could tell you but would have to kill you.
I have NO info on the other rumored kits.

Now, for a really nice set of side marker lights for any '68 Mopar, Auto Atomix has a set of machined aluminum ones that you gotta see to believe. I bought several sets from Dennis a couple of years back and I tell you, he does excellent work. His web site is at http://www.autoatomix.com. Right now he is not taking any new orders until he fills his backlog but hopefully that will be rectified soon.
Agreed. He makes top quality 68 MoPar marker lights, and lots of really good looking detail parts..

Here's the thing, though: The Rat Rod tires won't universally fit the wheels from other Revell kits. The only ones I've found that fit properly are the steelies from the Rat Rod wheel/tire pack and the mags in the '29 pickup and '31 sedan kits. On the other hand, wheels such as the Torque Thrusts from the '32 three-window and Speedwagon won't work because the ID of the tire is too large.
What that means is that if Revell was to use the Rat Rod tires in the upcoming Deuce sedan, the new wheels, be they K-H wires or whatever, would have to be tooled specifically to fit the Rat Rod tires ... which would be OK, I suppose, but somewhat limiting. It's just MHO, of course, but I think the Goodyear Sports Car Specials that have been included in the three-window, Speedwagon and numerous other kits are a better choice for a full-fendered rod. And, if you want wide whitewalls, it's a pretty simple matter to add them to those tires with Tamiya white primer and a circle template.
Alright Ken, i see your point every time, I'll leave this subject alone. Since I'll be buying a ton of these sedans when they come I was just hoping to stock up my stash of these tires. I have soooo many '31 sedans and '29 pickups that I had to stop buying them. Sorry for my wild optimism.

From the discussions about the '32 Tudor sedan w/Kelsey Hayes wheels, I saw this gem this past weekend at a local cruise night. If the model is anything like this car, I'm happy. I'd be inclined to do a close replica of it, the period warm gray paint w/the yellow wheels really fit this car perfectly, it was a knockout. Very subtle, full of attitude and class.
Those EXACT wheels are available from Replicas & Miniatures. The set comes with the hubs, rims, photoetched spokes, two set of hub caps, resin tires and white wall inserts. They are a tad on the expensive side - $46.00, but they are the best in scale wheels I've ever seen.
