Other than the Boss 302, there is nothing there that does anything for me.

Is the Anglia the other kit which shares many (most?) of its parts with the Thames Panel?

Yes. The main difference is the Thames still has its origonal wheels. The Anglia lost those when Revell converted it to a street rod.

Orriginally the Thames panel was identical to the Anglia kit except for the box art, the floorboard (revised to create a deck for the panel delivery body), the body casting, the shorter front doors, and the rear doors instead of the trunk lid.  And the decals were slightly different - "Simple Simon" was substituted for "Skipper's Critter" and everything else on the decal sheet was the same.  The Thames kit was introdcued about six months after the Anglia (late 1966 IIRC), and was molded in Revell's "mettalic" green styrene in lieu of the Anglia's "metallic red".   Guys...did I forget anything else?  ..

 

Both were excellent kits in my view.  TIM

Actually Carl, the Thames now has the same crappy Centerlines as the Anglia. Both kits share the same chrome tree, and when Revell changed the wheels (bad move) back with the Demon series, and all reissues since have have had them. I have originals of both kits with the 5 spokes, much better. Revell could really spruce up their old gasser kits with some nice, newly tooled wheels, and engines!!!

Revell needs to do new drag racing tires and wheels for the old these old gasser kits and the funny car and dragster kits, when they pantograhed them down from 1/16th they turned out like garbage in 1/25th, at least round 2 tries to update and upgrade theirs..Just saying

That Boss Mustang has to be the most boring and Vanilla thing on that sheet. Yes, really!

Only thing on that list for me is the Boss 302. I liked the original 69-70 Boss and the new one is the only Mustang that even remotely interests me, even in scale.

Precisely. A recent Mustang with the 5.0 Coyote engine. (finally) Lots to like there. The naysayers can entertain themselves with another '57 Chevy reissue.

Exactly...that's the only kit in Revell Q1 that I'm really interested in, since the rest are just reissues.   Curious where Q2 goes (besides the '57 Chevy convertible).

Nope, the Revell 1/48 Stearman is an all-new tool. 

 

New Revell:

Compared to old Lindberg:

Now that's good news!  I'm going to have to squeeze this one into my collection.  Always liked the Stearman, and it's the plane my father learned to fly in during WWII.  Thanks for the clarification.

Pretty sure it's Revell US.  I've heard that Bill Koster (who designed many of the 1990's "Pro-Modeler"-era aircraft kits, and is also well know for his Koster vac-form company) was involved with the kit design. 

 

I could see RoG releasing the Red Bull Flying Bulls' Stearman...   343970.jpg

 

A w e s o m e. Yup, liked me some ProModeler aircraft, and that Red Bull is a mandate for the aftermarket, if not Revell...

 

'Sall good, varying opinions on a 5.0 'Stang (2 or three are a mandate for me); mine's only ever had to impress one person, and it does that just fine.  I'm in for the Hawaiian purely to see the new rolling stock, good for the dragster too.  Honestly, the Stearman looks the hottest new tool to me...

   Yep, not an aircraft builder, but I might have to make an exception for that one ...

If they did the Red Bull version I would defiantly pick one up.

Ooh! Maybe they could do a custom 2n1 Stearman with the Red Bull parts as the "custom" version.

I myself like some of the Foose versions in plastic especially the 65. I agree it is the closest version in scale. The Boss 302 and coyote engine will be great also. I just wish I could get a Olds Cutlass from the early 80's so I could build the cart grandfather owned.

I wonder it some ot the people complaining about the kits being released in the  first quarter remember the days when all you got each YEAR was Camaro Corvette and Mustang?

 

I am glad the see the drag kits being reissued espcially the  new Jungle Jim dragster.

 

Hopefully the next three quarters will bring them what they want.

I just gotta have that Stearman, it'll go along with the others I have (but they fly, all control line versions, even one that has a three wire set-up where the third line works a dusting option instead of the intended throttle option).
