 Did anyone stop to think how good of a thing this really might be in the long run?  After the entire forum went crazy over the Fox body coupe roofline debacle, maybe Ford thought they better throw their hat in to make sure Revell doesn't mess this one up too.  :blink:

 

Also, yeah, marketing or not, the side affect is giving the children the joy of something they made with their own hands and can be proud of.  I saw something on here a few months ago where people were commenting on not caring if the hobby died out after they are gone.  Opinions are opinions and this is America so, it is what it is.  But my opinion is that it is a wonderful opportunity when you can pass the hobby down to kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, a neighbor kid, or whatever.  If you introduce a child to model cars, they will always remember that.  And it's a fond memory that I am glad my daughter will have when I am dead and gone.  If passing the hobby down through generations means fond memories, let's keep the ball rollin'.

Its a great deal that'll keep new blood flowing into the hobby, hell, Revell and Round 2 might even consider producing a few more modern car kits...hope they have a similar Make n Take at Chicago's show in a few weeks, I've got 3 young sons who love Mustangs....just like their Dad...

My buddy just got a notice on his E-Mail that he had won a model over the website contest. He said he'd just follow their directions and see what happens. Cool if it works out. Anybody else win? I KNOW he isn't the only guy here that won something.

I have a 2013 Boss 302 kit coming to me when the kit is released, I opted out of getting the promo , well I was given that option

Hopefully the full detail kit looks good when it comes out. Hopefully they release it with an optional right hand drive dash or uk and Australian customers. That car is going to sell like hotcakes.

Revell mentioned in comment to my post on thier facebook page that they will be selling the snap kit in late august/early September. Seems like a long time to make a box for the kit.

Maybe the retail kit will have more detail like other Revell Snap Tite kits...features like a detailed (but still one piece) chassis, mirrors, separate headlight lenses--less toy like.  From what I've seen, this snap kit is far below the detail level of a typical Revell snap tite kit.

Revell will add a detailed promo-style chassis, and a few other bits like side-view mirrors which were previously mentioned, so it's more than simply printing a box. They may also have some type of agreement with Ford which does not allow Revell to produce and market a model kit of the car until the major U.S. auto shows have finished for the season.

They're giving these away at the Chicago Auto Show, but only to kids that are present.
