That's the new Revell of Germany Beetle..there is a thread or two around here about them (new coupe and convertible kits)

I know it will have a tri-carb setup (but not sure exactly which one it will be), , a new exhaust system (duals, I believe), lowered suspension, and an automatic transmission.  Not sure how many wheel options it will have, but whatever it has will be vintage, no modern big-inch billet wheels, even though it's being labeled as a "California Wheels" kit.   The pics show Fiesta-style tri-bar hubcaps.  I don't know if anything will be done to the interior.

I hope there is some definitive news on 1/12 Camaro. Hopefully, Revell will show its desire to make great profits by including an RS option!!!!!

It looks the same as the test shots they showed earlier this year to me. I think the two-tone paint disguises the extra bodyside height.

 

 

Not sure what to say about the '53 Chevy Panel's decals, though.  :unsure:

I wonder if that '53 Chevy Panel truck/gasser will have fewer Chrome plated parts than the original kit had, (looks like the bumpers, tail-lights and grill might be unplated instead of Chrome-plated in this upcoming reissue).

My Mopar fanatics friends that saw it said they were OK with the Cuda's as shown.  Not perfect but much better then there previous offerings.  I would love to compare it side by side with the Johan '71 and MPC version for giggles. 

 

I'm with you Casey on the 53 Chevy panel graphics.  It will still make a great donor to fab up a '50 Olds Sedan Delivery phantom.

I will admit it's less noticeable to my eyes with the models finish painted than when they were in bare, grey plastic, but I still think I see the tiny bit of excess bodyside height. That won't be enough to stop me from buying one, as I think the parts alone should be worth the cost.

 

Were the '49 Woodie's "wood" areas painted or a decal, Steve?
