Different, nice job. Don't remember those kits at all.

I am seeking the rest of these as I have some . The dies were in transit on The Great Lakes to Monogram from Aurora  . A storm came up ... The Great Lakes Historically have had more Shipwrecks than anywhere else in the World . Unless this Tooling or some of them escaped this Boatload these are just a memory . A Dusenbergh Prototype did make it into a Running Complete Show one off . The last time I saw it located in the  ACD Museum on display . The 1:1 was a Dark Maroon Coupe with a MoPar / A 727 / 440 Loaded IIRC . Different than the Exner and Exner Jr. Designs quite a bit .     

     The Model you did here does this kit justice . The GM ish V/12 is a put off for me . The Impala ('58-'60) Steering wheel is nice . Keep up the great work .   Thanx ..

Great to see a rare and interesting kit fall into the right hands! Very nicely done.

I did the Mercer and Duesenberg when they were new but never saw the others in New Zealand. Wish I'd kept them.

I like the build a lot!

 

I see Olds Toronado under the Packard.

 

The artwork of others seem to be based on production cars as well.

I like the models look much better than this 90's version. :blink:

Beautiful job Al! Looks stunning! I had this one at one time too, wish I had kept it. Now I'd like to get the whole series. Very expensive though. I heard a rumor one time that they were slated for reproduction? Can't remember where I heard that. Would be great if they still had these molds. Since Exner is my all time favorite stylist, I'd love to have all these kits.

Thank you guys!!! The prices on these Renwal Revival series are crazy. I got this one for 60 bucks on ebay. There is a Stutz bidding right now for $79.00 and a Duesenberg for sale $230.00. If you really want one you need to watch the auctions sites. Anything under 80 bucks is a steal. Good hunting ;)
