While I'm a huge Chevelle fan and I'll probably purchase the kit regardless. I have the hard top version and it didn't come out looking to great [The RC2-era kits were thin] on the decals (got a 72 Chevelle and no stripes!). I wish Revell [...] would get on the ball and start making models like this.
I , too , would LOVE to see a new tooling of a 1970-1972 Chevelle !
The lack of Super Sport hood / trunk stripes on the 1972 Chevelle SS-454 kit was a source of irritation , without a doubt . Heck , I even utilised the LS-6 arrangement (an artifact of the 1970 version) on my build of the '72 ; I built that one for a friend . Black-onblack ; it was gorgeous !
Other than exterior cosmetic changes between the 1970-1971-1972 Chevelles (in addition to engine changes) , what other items were different ? Upholstery pattern(s) ? Perhaps an "All-Three-Years" option --repleat with period-correct hot rod upgrades-- would be in order !
