There's a lot of great kits comming out next year, but we allready knew about them. Still a fantastic 2013 ahead.

If you've never been to an iHobby show before I can understand how the limited amount of model cars could be a shock but I've been to the show several times and without Revell there would be little reason to go. The big question is, what reissues is Round 2 coming out with ??? That is really the only news here, I wasn't expecting anything new from AMT/MPC or Lindberg (was Lindberg even there ??).

I saw that! I gotta have me one of them!

Just a thought, though. This was a HOBBY show, not just a Model Car Show. We got most of our good news last week and we already knew Revell wasn't going to be there. There are some jewels from Round 2, just look through Tom's pictures and you'll find them.

I see the '49 Mercury (which was mentioned as a reissue two years ago on Round2's blog), '57 Ford hardtop, '58(?) Plymouth "Christine", Hulk Monster Truck, and (real?) vintage amt box art for an MPC '69 Hurst/Olds kit in this pic:

Is that a corrected body on the '58 Plymouth??? Or are my eyes deceiving me?

The trim appears straighter than the last issue...................

The retro box art on the '69 Hurst/Olds is pretty cool. The '71 Chevy van in retro 'Rescue Van' box art looks interesting..wonder if they are including the extra parts that original issue had. Looks like they are reissuing the '57 Ford in vintage box art also.

I can say that I am not all excited like I was for Revells 2013 line up

I know I will be getting the Rescue Chevy van, been wanting one, but not at Ebay price's

Its nice to see some Van kits making a comeback, I hope that trend continues

I see the Opel GT was shown again, so hopefully they finished cleaning up the tooling and it will appear in 2013:

There was a large scale Manta Ray at the Detroit Auto Rama this past year and a guy there for autographs . Do not care for the car so we walked by while looking at the car a bit. it looked like it was a rapid prototype model.
