-BQ-tQzwCGk---KGrHgoH-DUEjlLlypo6BJ4j8SB I'm really glad this is coming back albeit in 1/25th scale, I'm ok with that. I bought my first one when it was first released back in the early sixties.

I'd really like to know what's happened tho this kit over the years. I think we've all heard the rumor that it was cut up and used in other kits,i.e. the Hemi engines went to the S'Cool bus kit. I have both of these kits and I can tell you the engines don't match up.

The new advertizing says it's a 6 in 1 kit Sizzler_001.jpg

 

Well, anyway, just happy to see it coming our way. :D

From what I understand, the NEW "Slingster" is a TOTALLY NEW kit in 1/25th scale, and NOT the OLD Monogram 1/24th kit. I like those old Closed coupe drag bodies! I'll definately have at least two!

Sizzler, right?  I've drooled over the ones that have come up on evilbay for as long as I've drooled over old styrene on there.  I have never got one for one reason, the price they fetch is over what I have been willing to shell out for one.  I've had one partially (neatly) started original Sizzler in my hands, it was so tempting to shell out the $100+ asking price; the original was that beautiful of a kit.  (Not quite on par with the Little T era kits yet almost there, between the multipeice bodies and the Little T.)

 

So I nearly did backflips when I saw that they were going to re-engineer the kit from it's original 1/24th to 1/25th scale.  Most of us build in 1/25th scale, the aftermarket parts are also for the most part in 1/25th scale in case someone wanted to add a few doo-dads to their model.  Hopefully the new kit will have the flavor of the first Sizzler using todays quality standards, if they are going to do whole new tooling it should be done right.

 

Vintage Dragsters, Traditional Hot Rods and speed parts trip my trigger, you can bet I will get at least one Sizzler or a few to build in the versions shown on the original box.  Can't wait to get one in my hot little hands!

So it is a Bantam body, I thought it was a cut and chopped Ford sedan. 

 

Wonder if we'll finally get the 1/8 Lindberg Competition Coupe now from Round 2?

I'm stoked over this announcement! Its a good thing theyre re-doing it in 1/25. I've got a few parts left over from my childhood build of this kit, and some pieces like the blower, seem more close to 1/20 than 1/24. Reverse engineering plus upgrades!

Wondering if the from bicycle wheels are going to be the clear disc's with the spoke engraved in them. For a kit by far better looking than the wire wheels in the 22 Jr kits.

This isn't the greatest pic (I'm a terrible photographer), but here's a shot of the kit trees taken at the HMCA show last Saturday.

BTW, this is off topic, but the kit to the right is the '57 Chevy Convertible; Note the optional uptop for it. It also has the 2x4 bbl intake and Batwing airfilter setup.

The other Bantam bodied Dragster AMT-38061-2.jpg

 

The original Seventies MPC issue calls it a '32 Ford.  It doesn't look much like a '32 Ford, but then again is way bigger than an American Bantam...
