Finally we will get a Raptor kit in scale. It's just a snap kit as of now but It looks like some of the Meng F-350 hype may have motivated Revell to pump out a modern truck kit,hopefully we can get some more modern trucks in the coming years. I'm very excited about this!

Finally we will get a Raptor kit in scale. It's just a snap kit as of now but I guarantee you that's because the meng f-350 light a fire under revells butt and they knew they had to get out a kit of a modern truck. I'm very excited about this!

The Raptor has been in the planning stages since at least 3Q last year.  There already is a diecast 1/24 Raptor, so one issue Revell was considering is if there would be enough interest.  The ZL1 also has been in development for a while and will supposedly have the correct engine.  They're still trying to work out the C7 vettes with GM.

So... what (several others and) I thought stood a good chance be the first kit of a modern pickup truck in years actually turned out to be the second one.

Not complaining, just sayin'. :D

I just hope it comes with a good choice of decals to do the iconic bedside decal you see on a lot of the raptorsf150-svt-raptor.jpg

But since it's a snap tight chances are they will be stickers. :unsure:

Yeah- that's the only thing I'm really afraid of. Really the biggest downfall of the majority of Revell's newest snap kits.

I second that !

Looks like it's going to be under the Special Editions moniker , and that it's a 2-in-1 ... !!!

Wonder if it's based upon modified tooling for their 1969 Camaro (i.e. , backdated in a similar fashion as their 1969-come-1968 Dart series)  ?

Or modified tooling from the '68 Firebird kit..

Gerry....thanks for setting the record straight on this.  Model kits take a LONG time to develop and do correctly.  

 

While it makes a great storyline to suggest that the new Meng kit prompted Revell to go ahead with a Raptor, the timelines involved for such a scenario to have taken place just don't meet the realities of kit development today.

Is it possible that when this kit is released,that the Mengs f350 chassis could be modified to fit under the Raptor?

It's interesting that RAPTOR is a cool sounding name.  But think about it, it's a million year old extinct animal.. wouldn't that suggest old and out of style?   :)

It could but it is not really correct. The F150 and F350 frames & drivetrain probably don't share much as the GVWR is much different.

 

I spy some more lunch money well spent with the folks from Revell!

Raptors are present-day birds of prey, in addition to the dinosaurs.

If this is similar in quality to the Jeep Rubicon I'll get at least one. I can see a BLM Raptor to go with the jeep.

Wouldn't make sense, considering the Raptor is 1/25th and F150 based in 1:1 and the Meng Super Duty is 1/24th...and Super Dutys have very little in common w/ F150s.
