It looks like that the C-600 is 1/25 scale ! This will lead to many different versions of this box truck.
Farm trucks with a flat bed ,stake beds, grain trucks .

Thanks for taking the pics, Tom. :)

The timing of the '49 Mercury, '57 Fords, late '50s/early '60s SITM Vette, and '50 Olds diecast is a bit peculiar, or maybe it makes perfect sense. :unsure:

I'm a bit disappointed to see the '33 Willys won't be in an original style box, and the faux retro '69 Olds box art (I don't think AMT ever released that version) just looks weird to me.

I don't see a built-up 1/16 Petty clear bodied Charger, either, so maybe that kit won't appear until late 2013 or 2014 now? Looks like the '40 Ford coupe is a no go, too.

I see some potential kits for me, will have to see when they hit the shelves.

Gotta agree that the iHobby show is not about plastic model cars, and without Revell, there is very little to see there. I enjoyed walking around the show back when it was in Chicago, but figured out years ago it was about many hobbies and not just my addiction to plastic models.

(was Lindberg even there ??).


I saw J. Lloyd listed on a previous attendee list, but the latest list doesn't show them, so they probably didn't attend. Not good.

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 ??).

no lindberg either how could you push the model car hobby if you dont have the companys come and aftermarket stuff too Don Yoast was there selling vids

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

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

Sorry, your eyes are deceiving you. The kit on display came from an AMT/Ertl box; the only modification was the removal of the Belvedere script from the rear quarters.

I really hope you are wrong, I'd love to get a kit of the older 53-56 C series. If this is a box art mistake it is a huge one like putting a 1960 Corvette on the box for a 1970 Corvette kit.

Was really disappointed by the lack of support from the aftermarket companies. Small turnout for the model contest. I did take a third with my Kenworth. The winner was the Willys.

There are far too few truck kits out there. Anything new is a welcome site to me. And I've got all kinds of ideas for this one. Now to get the images and voices in my head to slow down a bit so I can focus. (Mama ain't going to let me buy a case of these.)

The C600 has been discussed over on Spotlight. It's been determined that the picture on the box is actually a 1/34 scale 1rst Gear diecast.
