I'm not defending Revell or saying you can't express your opinions, but just as Harry said, I think you should tone down the rhetoric, get rid of the all caps, and calmly state specifically, directly to Revell, the changes you feel are necessary. Saying that they don't care or that people should be fired etc, doesn't make you seem like serious customers, it makes you look like raving lunatics working yourselves up into a frenzy over a toy car.

Now I do agree with you on this! If you notice, I've never said anything negative about Revell. They are one of my most favorite model companies. I would never want anyone to lose thier job over something so trivial as a model kit as well. I even made a secondary post on Facebook asking everyone to keep the posts civil as the intent is not to bash Revell but simply to voice our opinion on something we're not happy with. The body is the only thing in this kit I'm not happy with. The rest of the kit is beautiful!!!!!!!! I was really enjoying building it! I just wish Revell would take into concideration that there are many, not just me that are unhappy with the body and maybe, just maybe they will consider redoing it. Maybe they won't? It never hurts to try to convince them though.

Ok... after 30 pages (!!!), I think I'm going to put this one to bed. Not because anybody did anything wrong, but because A, we've dissected this topic about as thoroughly as can possibly be done, and B, I don't want to have to keep checking it to see if it's gone off the rails (again). And I'm sure Casey feels the same way.

 

We've all had the chance to chime in and voice our opinions, pro and con, so it's not like I'm not letting everyone have their say. I think 30 pages of comments pretty much sums up all of our opinions on this topic.

 

If you would like for Revell to hear your opinions on this kit, I suggest you contact them directly (see post 589).

 

Now on to the next kit!  :D

I unlocked it, so hopefully we won't need to ensure it stays on topic.

 

I was just told the instruction sheet shows the car with Pony wheels and after looking at the instruction sheet, sure enough, it does:

The upper half was housed from the top page of the instruction sheet, and pasted above the image on the bottom half of the last page, but does the kit really include four #15 decals, as pictured? Maybe this was mentioned before and I missed it.

Yes it does

Not only does it include the wheel decals, but I used them on my red coupe, on your resin Pony wheels.

As I understand it, the plan was to have the Pony wheels, but with the combination of interior details and other stuff made the car too old to have been sold with the Pony wheels, so it has the telephone dial wheels.

 

I don't know if they were tooled up or not, but they were there in the design phase, so they have probably at least been mastered.  They'll probably show up in a future variant of the tooling, I'm sure Revell will get their money's worth out of this one.

They had the inverse problem too, as the kit was originally marketed as a '92, but without the Pony wheels being in the kit, the last year the Rotary Phone wheels were available on the civilian (non SSP) Mustang was 1990.

It's mainly the interior, the base 4 cyl/police/5.0 LX interior with the phone dial wheels could be either the civilian '90, and no later, or the police version to '93. No police car ever had the Pony wheels, and no civilian '91-'93 pony wheel equipped car ever had the base seats/interior; all had the sport seats and tweed upholstery. '91-'93 civilian 5.0 LXs were only equipped with the Pony wheels, the phone dials those years were police/SSV only.

 

Also, the kit has no door panel pockets, which were added in '90, so the door panels are not correct for the '90 anyway. So to make it a correct '91-'93, the Pony wheels will have to be added with wider, lower profile tires, the seats and upholstery will have to be changed, and the door panel pockets will have to be added.

Interesting. I guess we'll find out when the next version is announced.

Despite all the complaining, I like this kit. I'm no Mustang expert, but over all the kit looks fine to me. More accurate than many models offered in the past. I'm building a phantom MN state trooper car. Minnesota ran some unmarked Mustangs, but mine's going to be a maroon cruiser with white doors, full markings and lights. It make not be correct. But it's what I want. And Revell's Mustang will work just fine for what I want.
