Vintage road race would be best on an AAR "cuda wouldn't it?

With out a doubt. We can only hope that the minds at Revell figure this one out.

I'd be willing to bet they already have it planned as a future release. Looking at the layout of the sprues in the parts board pics, they have really set it up to allow for a lot of flexibility as far as future variants are concerned.  :)

I'm still lookin forward to this one, even though I have two of each, the 70 and 71 MPC Cuda's. It will be interesting to compare, AND they'll be done with up to date technology, so I won't have to gut an cut anymore B- Bodies just to get their chassis and engine compartments! Oh yeah you betta believe I'm waitin on THIS one!!!

I would rather it be late and right,,,,, as opposed to early and inaccurate.

 

Not like I need it right now anyway.

 

Took the words right outta my mouse, Bill

That could be said for every new tooling

the 2 scoop hood is just  shaped wrong in several ways. Not that I'l use either hood in 9 out of 10 of the ones I build so to me it's not a deal killer

Plus the area circled is to tall and should flow back into the rear of the hood more and not be so big shouldered

 

Now, That said if it comes out exacly the way it looks right now even with it's flaws ,,,,,,I'll still do the happy dance

Hopefully they correct it. I do wish they would put a flat hood in, as I would like to do a 6 banger.

That standard ( non-Shaker ) hood looks like it'd be a cool custom piece , especially with some creative bold-stripe decals or painting !

 

The sides of the body look a little too tall to me . Not "slab-sided" , just too tall .

Perhaps it's just the combination of the monochrome kit and convention hall lighting which create an illusion ? I'm loving the separate wipers , the nicely rounded windshield surround , the interior (what I can see of it) and its options . I just hope that the tail lights are moulded clear and not chrome or red !

 

I would also like to see the trim rings and centre caps moulded separate from the Rallye Wheels :D .

That's not even worst the part.  I heard it's going to have 1950 La Carrera Panamericana decals.   #anditbegins...

1) My pics aren't all that good, but you can see the basic shape of the tail light and reverse light bezel at the lower left in this pic:

I am assuming Revell will not include include clear red lenses for the brake/tail lights, and I don't see any clear lenses for the backup lenses. I don't think they could mold the bezels as separate pieces (too fragile/thin), though:

I hope that Revell "sees the 'light'" ,and that they move the lenses to the clear parts tree ... Please ! Even the ill-fated 1970 AAR 'Cuda ---in both iterations , 1994 and 2008--- had clear lenses !

I talked with Ed Sexton from Revell at the Milwaukee NNL this past Saturday and he told me the kit will be out in November.

Isn't the Toledo show in Nov ? or is it October ( been a while since I was there ) But I am actually thinking about going this year just for giggles

 

might be a good show for it to debut, since thats where it was announced
