My guess is we will see some announcement from Revell prior to January.

I was lucky enough to make it to Hot August Nites in Reno this year, & the Barrett Jackson show area had every color that is available in the C 7's on display, & they were actually selling them to select people on site. (I was lucky to over hear a conversation between one lady & a factory rep that "The board of directors will not be interested in the car unless you can have it ready to drive out by tomorrrow morning" must be nice to have that much clout.

Why is Revell so secretive?

Did I miss the exit ramp for this conversation? I think I'm gonna make a U-turn and get back on the main road. Any crazy rumors floating around about the releases?

Sorry to get off-point, but I can't see all the excitement over "America's sports car", when the manufacturer had some 60 years to get it right.

First it was iHobby/NNL weekend. Then it was 10/15. I'm getting tired of this.

 

Somebody knows the date when the Automotive releases can be revealed.

 

When is it?!

Remember when there was a time when we didn't know what was going to be released until we saw ads in Car Model or Model Car Science, even Rod and Custom?  Sometimes, we were actually pleasantly surprised by seeing cool new stuff in person, on the shelves in the stores.  I kinda miss those days.

Revell has never stated an official date for their 2014 announcements, so when they are ready, they'll let us know. Gerry was told it will be sometime on OR after October 15, 2013, so that's as official as it gets. 

 

The announcements will be here soon enough, so please, be patient.

They're models, people.  They're only car models.

I have enough projects on my bench and waiting in my "stash" so anytime Revell makes their announcement is okay with me. Yes, even two years from now.

We though it'd be iHobby weekend because that's when they did it last year, but IIRC, iHobby was later in October last year.

 

Last I heard they were waiting on the OK about some licensing agreements that apply to some of the new announcements.  

 

There's a couple good 'uns in this year's batch, trust me...

But would they not have obtained the license agreements before beginning production on a kit?

One would think so...

Well, you usually have to have mock-ups to show to the licensing folks, so some development has to be done beforehand.  I'm sure they know what it takes to get the car companies' licensing by now.  It's possible it might be some sort of movie/TV show deal they're waiting on, those are a little bit different.  But that's just me speculating.  They could be running right on schedule...

I remember when we didn't know what new kits were being produced . . . until we saw them on the shelves.  

 

No pre-release hype, no magazine leaks, no internet, just walk into the store and see what's there today!

Clearly the management of the model companies are inept.  The companies should fire the lot and come here to hire the replacements. :rolleyes: :unsure:
