I keep looking at picture of the real second gen "New" Beetle, and can't see any bumper cover-to-fender cut lines as shown in Revell's pic, not to mention that blister/wedge/highlighted area(?) at the upper left corner.

 

Revell's pic must be a left front 3/4 view?:

 

 

Huh?  The upcoming Revell kit is a reissue of the New Beetle kit, which a '99-00 or so.   Not the new Beetle.     No one has kitted the new Beetle yet, maybe RoG will eventually.

1/12 '69 Camaro Z/28 modified reissue with Chip Foose designed wheels and graphics

If this is accurate i really hope that the parts are there for a stock RS/SS. I won't touch it if is only a foose. On the other hand, i would imagine the aftermarket guys would step in eventually and fix the shortcoming like Scale Motorsports.

I really doubt they will do that..sounds like this as described-- the existing Z/28 kit with Foose wheels, large tires, and new decals..doubt if there are any other new parts.

I doubt Revell is going to tool up new RS tail lights, a new grille, etc. either. I am expecting just what the '68 Firebird kit got- new decals, new wheels, and matching tires.

I am surprised they are Foosing the 1/12th Camaro....though a Foosed 1/25th Camaro probably wouldn't be much different than the existing Motor City Muscle kits (same idea)..

Thank you Revell. This is a fantastic line-up and will take care of my spare change for a while.

Maybe one day we can convince Revell to reissue the 1969 Sand Crab dune buggy kit.  I always thought it was just cool.

 

Thanks again to Revell and Round 2 for all they do for us modelers.

Keep up the great work.

I asked Ed Sexton about that very kit and subject-- backdating some of the Tom Daniel designed kits which were modified into *ahem* less desirable versions-- and was told they are considering doing that. He mentioned the Rommel's Rod, Circus Wagon, and Dragon Wagon, which were all either backdated or reverse enginereed, so it may happen someday. The Sand Crab has way more character and style than the Lil Van which it became, and TD kits have a very loyal and large following, so we'll have to see what happens.

 

As for the 1/12 '69 Camaro, I think Revell wants another "holiday" kit in the lineup come Black Friday, and this one's a pretty good choice. The Big Tub is discontinued and only the 1/12 Shelby remains, which I'm guessing will be discontinued next year after three years of availability.

Thanks for the info Casey.  I picked up one of the (original) Sand Crab kits at a yard sale about two years ago but haven't started it yet.  The only bad part in the kit is the deacls show thier age and a slight mark on the clear green roof cover. The box is in pretty good shape given it's age.  I do plan on starting on this kit in the near future.

Here's the pic of the to-be re-issued New Beetle:

And the sketch Revell has posted for the 1/12 Foose '69 Camaro:

 

[attachment=38593:foose691.jpg]

 

 

Here's the pic I found from 2002 showing a '69 Camaro at Foose's shop, which looks a lot closer to the earlier sketch Revell showed:

Looking at the Revell sketch of Foose 1/16th Camaro the grill looks like an r/s hide away headlights.my 2 cents

I'm surprised they're issuing anything at all in 1/12. The two Revell product managers said last year in a podcast that they didn't see any future in 1/12 and would not be pursuing it.

Sounds like good marketing.......IF you know something.
