thats cool. I'm thinking old school hot rod with mine.

I have a nice flathead V8, and some speed parts stashed away.

and I'm thinking of going completely fender-less.

 

it will be all steel. I do not know if I want a chopped top, and color variations that

I'm hung up on. thats why I wish to build up  several test shots,

so I can see if my ideas will work on a tudor sedan.

l have been considering filling the rear windows of my sedan to make a delivery. Aren't the dimensions the same?

Yep they are the same, and it would be an easy conversion. I have one that I have scribed the back door into but left the windows ( Flower Car). From what I under stand the panels for the delivery were added into the windows of a sedan and the door was cut out. I may be wrong, its been a while since I read about it. But I think thats why there were very few deliveries.

Check with Norm from Rep Min he has all the bodies to fit the kit with all the added new parts will make a nice build! But would like a stock chassis wait NORM has that too!

I would like to see one with all the hop-ups for a Flathead Ford engine and some we've never seen in any previous kits. And maybe a body style we've never had available.  Oh yeah and a stock rear end or quick change.  Just an ordinary guys thoughts.  I vote for the Vicky and the Pickup.

I voted for the closed pickup because I'm a light commercial kinda guy!   I do think a future version, like a Vicky could be sold bone stock. That would be the parts kit for everyone who has moaned that there are no stock parts in the previous releases.

 

Also with Revell's strategy of doing new tools of iconic cars that you would buy and build over and over, with the option of multiple versions... don't think that they're not planning on a Model A somewhere in the future.  It would make sense that the Model A kit would interchange with the '32s for that classic A on a '32 chassis. There are a bunch of older Model A kits, but nothing that's up to contemporary standards.

would like to see a chopped coupe and sedan bodies.

 

What, so we can complain about the chops like we do with the '49 Merc & the '48 Ford? :lol:

 

I'd like a parts pack containing all the goodies we buy the various kits for plus a few new parts like ardun heads, correct Hemi extractors and a stock rear end.

 

And Revellogram are now producing "celebrity" cars how about a reissue of the sedan with the parts to build the Eastwood & Baraket car

The Victoria's been a long-standing rumor, right?  A trad Vic? Seems counterintuitive we might actually get some more traditional pieces the next go-round, but it wouldn't be the first time Revell's done something like that (cf Yenko/COPO Nova).  If Revell does push in the traditional direction, they may already have a decent set of big 'n little rubber between the '50 Oldsmobile's tires and the '62 'Vette's.

 

Think a phaeton would look good on the Roaster running gear, maybe another possibility.

Thanks for the compliments!  I always thought the AMT '32 Vic had a chopped look to it, and that's why I modified the AMT body to fit the Revell fenders, etc.  It's a little narrow from side to side, but the conversion seems to look OK.

 I'd love to see the McMullen roadster, but I think I have already said that. Version B:

But imagine the older more traditional version A. Imagine if this could be built OOB! Both are real close to the Rat Roaster. Revelle already has the six carbs in the Woody, the small block in the Roaster, the front tires and wheels from the rat rods series works, the Miss Deal slicks fit perfectly. Tool up some new rear wheels, radius rods, and its a go!

I'd say to try the Danbury Mint McMullen car, but it's now unobtanium, except for the sky-high prices for it on eBay.  I have one, and it's gorgeous.

I voted Vicky, but I think a panel/sedan delivery would probably be the easiest one to do (it's pretty easy to do already, basically just blank off the windows and scribe a door line).  Something tells me the 32 pickup would be the most likely choice for them to make, though, but it doesn't have that much appeal to me personally.  

 

Engine choices would be one of the early GM OHV's (Cad or Olds) with tons of speed parts we could use on the 50 Olds and the Cad in the 49 Merc. - Or if they're feeling really frisky a Nailhead would be awesome...

 

Some sort of cool old rear end, too, either a Hallibrand quick change or Columbia 2-speed.

 

Juice brake backing plates (if we're lucky some finned Buick drums, but that would be asking a lot  ^_^ 

 

Proper set of big n little blackwall skinny tires would be nice, they've got a decent start going - the newer style hollow 50 olds and 62 vette tires make a decent combination (or the 57 ford/57 Chevy 150 solid tire for the fronts).    

 

And for the love of Pete, a 4" drop Super Bell I-beam front axle!!!  Heck, give us a stock front axle and some friction shocks while you're at it...

3 Window.  With no new parts but with a mix & match from the others - say with a flathead, hairpins, bobbed  & cycle fenders and the new wheels & tyres.

I know an A on Deuce rails is a common thing to do in the real world, but for those of you yearning for another Revell '32 Ford-based variation, would a Model A roadster/coupe/sedan on the existing Revell Deuce chassis (frame, suspension, engine/trans) satisfy you?

sure!
