Interesting. The Good Guys box art shows an opening vent window and the new shot doesn't.

One thing... the 1940 Ford coupe I built when I was a kid had a grille like this one. Why the difference and when was it changed?

A lot of 1:1 hot rods omit the vent windows and use a 1 piece side window. This may be Revell's intent.

I just got two copies of this one and look forward to building them. Looks like an all around great canvas.

Yes, it is.

I'd like a Woody, pick-up and sedan all based on that kit. Like they do with the 32's.

No, just the big 'n' little radials.

Or, just maybe, the person who built the box art model simply did not install the vent windows... :huh:

Anyone know or has a review on this kit? Is it basically the same as the pro modeler of years back?

The only pro modeler version I know is the convertible, but this kit is pretty much the same as the streed rod version of the pro modeler, except this one is a coupe.

It's a nice kit if you are looking for a street rod and it does not build the stock version since it doesn't have the stock suspension or rims/tires or the steering wheel.

Couldn't one use the AMT '41 Woody with a Revell '40 front clip and rear wings to create a '40 Woody?
Or is the upper arch of the '41 rear wings too different from the '40?

This is the Revell-Monogram Pro Modeler '40 Ford Deluxe Convertible kit, but nearly the same as the coupe.

I assume the most recent issue of coupe is the same as the Good Guys one (red car on box) from the mid oughts...

Or is the upper arch of the '41 rear wings too different from the '40?

On the 1:1, the '41 body is entirely different from the '40. The '35 thru '40 frames are basically the same and the '41-'48 are basically the same.

 

You're also right...the rear fenders are very different in shape...
