This kit could have the same potential as the AMT '71 Charger did with '71-'76 B-bodies, as far as using it to update every E-body from '70-'74 with accurate chassis, doghouse and driveline. Also the new tires looked incredible and the 15" Rallyes might be the best yet. I am not even an E-body guy, but am still very excited for this kit.

Tim, thanks for the back-story on this kit. To say I'm happy to see it us an understatement. Just waiting to hear a hands-on review before we celebrate. And with the prospect of a Sox & Martin version this kit has winner written all over it. I think Revell listened and did their homework.

Can't wait to see it released!

Me, if it takes another 8, 9 or 10 months for them to release the kit, I don't care, there's no hurry. If they need that time to release a nice, detailed, correct, accurate '70 'Cuda, I say go ahead! Take your time and do it right this time.

I got a closet full of unbuilt kits anyway so it's not like I have anything else to do during those next 8, 9 or 10 months :)

Maybe I'll get a kit done before it is released but I will be getting this as soon as I can. I see a pro stock in my future.

VERY exciting news. Revell is showing why they lead the kit market here in the States.


I'm getting several.

Looks fine to me. You do know that the hood does bulge up in the back between the scoops right?

Here is a good link to the hood.

I'm talking more about the amount of bulge and the slope, looks almost cartoonish to me.

I'm not exactly a Cuda expert, someone is going to have to point out the problem because I just don't see it. The height of the bulge looks fine to me, it looks like over an inch on the actual car.

The hood is terrible- the 1/24 two scoop Monogram piece was actually pretty decent

I will hold judgement on the 70 kits hood till I see it in person. The Monogram 71's hood is real nice but it was missing the buldge I was talking about.

the test shot hood does look "over-done" with exaggerated proportions , but it *is* simply a prototype . Who knows ; maybe it's done like that on purpose ? Perhaps Revell took paint-thickness into consideration ?
Given the current direction that Revell has taken with its new(est) products , I'm going to give them the benefit-of-the-doubt regarding the massaging of the hood's proportions :) .

Let the bashing begin, lol. I dont think it looks that bad. The pic on here is a bit fuzzy tho. This is, however, a test shot. so alot can change.

Friends, you have to remember, this is a test shot, how many test shots of the Hudson & Chrysler 300 C did we see before they hit the shelves, & it was a lot longer than 8 0r 9 months, this is why we shouldn't bash a kit, or the time frame until we see the finished product in our hot little hands, a lot can change before we actually see a finished product. I for one can put up with a few delays if they are going to address a few problems in the meantime.
