i take it at least one of those sprues, probably the one with the bumpers on it, are to be chrome plated in the production version?

i always liked that body style as much or more than the GM product of the same year.

Looks like Revell-Monogram is going to hit another bases-loaded home run ! I've always really liked the late 50's Fords . If a Ranchero and or Ranch Wagon is made off of this mould , I'll just burst !!

Can't hardly wait for this kit to hit the shelves !

Looks like that might be a supercharger. This kit is definitely going to be a must-have. Revell's really outdoing themselves lately. May have to have all 3 of the new kits.

This will make a really cool police car! As for the Ranchero with a stock look - or a wagon - why can't they simply make a separate body mold for each body style without destroying the current one and thus allow themselves more sales and more options down the road? And speaking of that - I wonder why the '57 Fairlane was never released as a convertible by AMT? As a matter of fact, there are not many older convertibles out there at all. How many good kits were forever lost in stock form when the company altered the body such as the '65 Fairlane and oh yes - that Chevy panel that became the "Barnabas (sp?) truck from Dark Shadows?

Is that a Paxton supercharger I see to the left of the two license plate bases in the second last image above?


Definitely looks like a finned Paxton housing to me. What I DON'T see is the large-diameter hose from the very distinctive air-filter housing to the blower, the filter housing itself, the hose from the blower to the round carb-air-box, or the air-box. (a Paxton blower setup was a factory option on some models in '57, and there was a dealer-installed version).

I hope Gerry doesn't mind me posting these pics he took at iHobby 2011...:


Not all all. Anything I post for the benefit of the Hobby is sharable. BTW, I do not intend to go to Cleveland for this year's IHOBBY, so there won't be a report out as I've done the previous three years.

What if we all chip in and get you a bus ticket and some vouchers for meals, would you consider going then????? :P

Just kidding Gerry, you have contributed alot over the years here with your pictures, whether it is a 1:1 car show, a model car show or the iHobby show and I for one do appreciate it!

Hopefully there is another modeler from the Cleveland area that will go and give us a report on what is happening.

Isn't it interesting that the parts trees pictured from the 2011 iHobby show have parts for a Paxton supercharger but the box art and built ups from the 2012 iHobby show don't include the Paxton in either build ???

I'm a diehard Mopar guy,
But as an avid vintage drag car fan ,,,,I am so looking forward to this Ford AND the Ford F100

Maybe , just maybe somewhere in the near future we might get a late 50's Desoto or a late 60's Dodge pickup
