I thought I might share some info I recieved from revell today. I have been hounding them about the 1/25 scale auto transporter trailers and I recieved an email saying they would look into re-issuing them. If all us lovers of the semi kits would email them, we might get it re-issued.

Yep, it was maybe in 2006 or so, which was around the last time the Beall tanker was reissued too. These are pretty strong trailers too, the three cars on the bottom and the middle car on the top of mine are diecasts!

Ok heres an update.....  Just got a reply email from this Ed Sexton along with talking to him on the phone. After our phone conversation its looking good for reissue if molds are in good enuff shape. I gave him forum links showing how much they were sought after, he agreed that it is a good to reissue if the molds are in good enuff shape.

I want one my shelby blue crew has grown too big for just one trailer and im not doing a roof ramp for my moebius lonestar. i have 3 cars that wont fit on the trailer and im looking to get a shelby daytona eventually do a what if foxbody gt500(even though i cant stand foxes) and take the 1.24 revell cobra putting revell 2008 gt500 parts in it and calling it a 1/25 modern cobra. that would be all 6 on the new trailer. so tell revell they got another buyer if they reproduce it.

Craig according to the representative from revell, new releases are in May & October every year. If it is reissued this year it will more than likely be in Oct.

I'm sorry, I didn't make myself clear. What years would this transport been used for new car deliveries? (mid 50's, 60's, ect.) Thanks for the responce.

To answer Craig Irwin's question. This style of trailer would have come in around the early 80s. As the kit is though it probably would not have transported new vehicles as set up. I'm not sure what brand it represents or if it's generic but it doesn't represent a new car transporter. While a rerelease would be nice unfortunatley based on Revells history the price will be close to the century mark.

OK, I thought it would be much older because it doesn't have a car over the tractor cab.

That would have been included in the Tractor kit Not the Trailer.

A generic Over the Cab section would have to be adjustable due to the fact that semi trucks come in

so many different Sizes!!!

Each brand is different

If you want the rack over the Cab, you have to Scratch-build it! (That way it will Fit correctly

since you will Scratch it ON the cab of choice

 

I think the Only Car carries to have the rack for over the Cab was an All-In-One set from Japan

Not sure if it was 1/48, 1/32 or 1/24 scale though.

I do know it was EXPENSIVE and Limited
