Is anybody else having trouble viewing the .pdf file? :blink:


Yes , my computer doesn't like it either but my work one does , it's been happening with a lot of pdf's after an adobe update .....

I'm hanging out to see the mini , it's a few mm bigger than the Tamiya one so should be true scale (the Tamiya mini is smaller than 1:24 ...) .

Did not know that, and was thinking about getting that one, I am pretty sure its going to be the ROG one

I only found out while doing a scratch built model of one of my cars (Nota Fang , mini based 2 seat sports car) , I built the chassis from scaled measurements from the 1:1 chassis and then found the motor and subframe were a little bit smaller ... Checked the rest of the car and it's smaller than 1:24 :(

Anybody know what year the Mini is?

Answered my own question - 1964. Would have been cool to see an earlier version since we do have a very nice 1964 Tamiya kit available.

According to this it's a 1964 cooper (no mention of capacity but should be 998cc I'm guessing) ,

I like the Overhauling Kits those wheels alone should be worth it alone! Also excited about the Hummer kit, wish it was a glue kit though.

I can hardly wait as I'm running out of kits to build and I'll be able to replenish my stash before the winter sets in.

Boot Hill Express...I'm gonna get me another one. The one I have, I built when I was 8. I'm liking the Mini, unless it's a repop of the Tamiya. Gonna pickup the pickups, Dodge and Lightning, and I like the Challenger. One question...where are all the 30's Fords??????????

I see quite a bit I'll get, the Road Runner, GSX, Camaro, both Firebirds, 93 Mustang, Boothill Express, and probably some more. I have a few of these already but I kind of want a fresh start on some of them, I wonder if the Daytona will be the full Promodeler kit with all of the stock car stuff?

Even though I'm sure it's just a rebox I will pick up the Shelby Cobra for the collection. The Foose cars look like they have potential. The art is one thing and the model may another. We shall see.

Great to see the Vandal back out. I'll definitely be grabbing a couple of those. I've had a project based on that kit in mind for a while. Stock Hum is a welcome sight as well.

Foose is a little late to the party, yes, but his designs are generally clean enough that they hold up okay over time. What I hope doesn't happen is they alter the Firebird body irreversibly from stock. Throw all the doo-dads at it it'll take, but that's a great kit and I'd hate to see the old habit of making a return to stock a non-option again.

Sheesh, I almost missed the Challenger 1 in there. Typical 60's Revell fiddly kit, but a great subject and with some work comes out real nice. Since I totally ransacked mine for a kitbash project ages ago, it'll be great to add that one back into the collection.

Definitely looking forward to the Mini and the Ferrari 599 GTO- talk about opposite ends of the automotive spectrum!

Just my luck that after I scour the ends of the earth for a NIB 93 they announce a repop lol. Gosh darn. O well gives me a chance to get another new. I'm also real pumped about the 85 Camaro! Been wanting to build one of those. Actually most of the cars on that PDF get me cised, gonna be a fun winter!

Not a whole there to get me excited, although it would be nice to have a couple of those kits if they end up at Hobby Lobby and I get then with my 40% coupon. Still waiting for some of those new tools that are on the way (50 Olds, 57 Ford, 77 GMC).

The 77 GMC isn't a new tool. It's an old simplified Monogram kit from way back,so don't expect a lot on that one. It will have a new snow plow to go with it supposedly.

I'm looking forward to the Foose kits and hope these are just the beginning! I really hope Revell does them right and doesn't just add a set of wheels and tires to them,but I won't hold my breath. The rest, I already have or have no interest in.
