Wonder if we'll ever see this one again any time soon ?

Last issue was in 2004 or 2005. I would like to see a reissue too so I could build the car from "All or Nothing" by Theory of a Deadman.

Yep, that's the car. I started it with a built kit and DESTROYED the body beyond recognition.

Not the same scale

 

Not the same kit

 

Not the same stuff inside

 

It's from the  Revell "Fiddly" series (floppy doors, hoods, trunk and spindly suspension,and the same ol 409)

 

come to think of it, I don't have one of those. But I still want a Monogram '53

This was the topic i started with. I have a few more screenshots in there if anybody else would want to try to build it.

I would say so. Even though it's 1-24th scale made it look way larger than a comparable 1955 Bel Air , this kit went together well and looked nice on a display shelf .

Both the Monogram and Revell 53 Chevys have proportion problems, and the Revell kit is far from stock. This subject is long over due for a new tool.

Problem is, the Monogram '53 was on the books almost non-stop for ages it seemed. The market was so saturated you almost couldn't give them away. And at 1/24, wheel choices were limited. They're not hard to find even now.

Yeah I'll be getting another one of these when I get around to working on all the '53 cars that I can find.  Or I can redo the one I built about 20 years ago.  The scale thing is really not an issue for me.

I agree with Craig. We need a new tool '53 or '54. They are very popular in full scale. I have 2 friends with '53's. This one's very high on my "frothing at the mouth" for a new tool list.

IMHO, that is a poor excuse for a model kit and not worthy of my time or glue.

That issue has some excellent tires

I'd like to see the 53 again. And the 53-54 sedan delivery granted not the best kits but I always had fun building them. The last one I had was the 54 sedan delivery and I had as much fun as when used to build them back in the day.

What is the difference between this kit and the later Revell version? I have one that is in the Lowrider box but the rest of the kit is really nice.

The 1/24 Revell re-boxed Monogram kit? Not much, really, other than the addition of the lowrider parts, paints, and paintbrush.

 

I would be perfectly happy if any and all of the 1/25 and 1/24 Revell and Monogram '53/4 Chevy kits never saw the light of day again, echoing Nick's feelings above. These aren't great kits being totally honest, and all of them, including reissues, are still easy to find, and not very expensive.
