Hmmm....  I do wonder if that's a misprint.  Though their are a number of new parts needed--new engine, wheels, some interior parts (seats,etc), taillights, some body parts (hood, nose/grille, front and rear fascias)...maybe there are enough differences that it's 'new'..

 

You might have something there.

 

But because the '10 GT/GT500 kit has an accurate body shell with separate front and rear fascias, and because the GT500 kit by any objective measure has a hood and a front fascia at least halfway to looking like the '13, I had to puzzle a bit that the kit should be ALL-new.

 

Not that I'd have any particular problem with it being a brand-spanker from the ground up; heck, if Revell had unlimited funds and I had my druthers, they'd ALL be all-new with incremental improvements from one kit to the next. But I wondered what really made such an expenditure necessary in practical reality, especially when there's been talk of the '10 not selling as well as hoped - nice as it is.

 

Turns out that the Boss has subsequently been characterized as 80% new or heavily modified, and that makes a lot more sense to me.

 

Hey, long as we're getting a Coyote mill...

There where a few cars that ran under the Jungle Jim banner, a Pro Stock Vega Wagon, an SS/A Camaro and the Top Fuel Dragster.

I think we are more likely to see a '57 150 Handyman or sedan delivery than we are a Nomad. Notice that Revell, for the most part, has been very careful to not do new kits of any Tri-5 Chevys that were previously done by the "old" Revell in the '60s, the '55 hardtop being the one exception. As a junior stock fan, either a Handyman or a sesan delivery would cause me to pollute my britches in delight!

Hmmm....if they go for the base wagon theme a '57 Ford Ranch Wagon would be nice also.

I remember the JJ Pro Stock Vega panel, the Camaro S/S......The Novas, Camaro, Vega and Monza funnies. The rail, I don't remember competing at all.

 

I'd bet its the Mongoose rail with decals. If its the old multi-piece dragster we can only hope they redo the chassis. The last couple of Revell issues of the 1/25 dragster suffered some serious quality issues.

Gotta say, now that I done gone and scoped a few 150 Handy... men? out, I'm warming to the idea mighty quick...

Maybe Revell could whip up some decals for their Camaro kit too!

And if they are doing the Boss 302, they really need to do its rival, the '14 Camaro Z-28...

 Forget the Nomad, give me a 150 Handyman junior stocker!!!  

 

 

 

 

I want both- stock, though.

 

I like wagons. It's really about all I drive myself.

Wow, so many cool subjects out there, yet Revell just regurgitates the same old junk ..  the only "new" thing is a '13 Mustang ? That's about as exciting as root canal. No wonder this hobby is dying out.

Posting a pic of Jungle Pam's chest is not appropriate for a family 'site like this. Use better judgement when posting, please.

Is Revell going to announce additional stuff on Friday, or just the first quarter releases?

 

I'm going by what Gerry said and was told by Revell. They will make another announcement in December telling us what they have planned for the second quarter (April-June) of 2014. When they plan to officially announce the 1Q releases, I have no idea.
