I like the Blue Bandito, and I am always up for more Tom Daniels. The Street Fighter in all it's versions has always been one of my favorites. I have several, but will have to buy one or two more just to let Revell know they are still wanted. One day I am still hoping to build a 1:1 version.

 

I am actually feeling a tad nostalgic for the half track model as well. Haven't built a military kit since I was like 13. Might be fun to try again. Back then if it was plastic and got glued together I would build it. :lol:

Glad to see the Revell 67 Camaro, maybe I should unload some of the 67 & 68 AMT Camaros that I have been hoarding.

 

This can't be good news for the soon to be re-issued AMT 68 Camaro!

Let the whining begin!   :D

 

For everyone who said that the manufacturers were ignoring young people and modern vehicle subjects, here they are!  Revell is doing a pretty good job!   And note that there are both snap kits, and easier glue kits with low parts counts to bring in new hobbyists.

 

And then there will be those who will post that they don't like modern cars and Revell should've done another Tri-Chevy  :lol:

 

Modern, meaning not just modern muscle. Close, but still an eh for Revell. The Japanese still have them over with more cars teens would actually want, and drive in real life. 

 

And yea, where the hell is the 57 convertible lol!

 

Yay on the Raptor! Lame it's not the 4 door. The snap easy kit aspect is NOT a deterrent tho:)

 

I HOPE the R8 is the v10 version. Weird that they showed the pic of the glue v8 one. Doubtful.

 

And HOPE HOPE HOPE the glue version of the ZR-1 has different wheels ugh! 

 

We'll see what Ed brings next saturday:)

Just about ALL of it works for me!  Raptor is bad-a$$, keen on the Camaro long as it at least matches '68 Firebird standards.

 

And as ever, just gotta dig the irony in the whining about whining starting before any actual whining.  B)

I wonder if the Camaro will be an SS 350 or an SS 396..

 

Edit: from the engine pic posted on FB, it looks like it is a 396.

Lookin forward to the 67 Camaro. More impressed they are bringing out stuff aimed at kids though. Lets get the kids into the hobby now and move them along in the hobby in stages, Smart move in my eyes.

Seconded...

Built test shots??

Looks good, but I hope a rear spoiler is included.

The hood is not right for most T/A (but still looks great), but looks like a roll bar, Minilites, and removed rear seat.  I hope the bumper and grille are 2 parts.

I'm guessing an SS eliminator (Jenkins maybe?) after the initial release.

 

I am very much interested in this one!!

And for those that think I am complaining - not at all - just wondering what the build options are.  For me some options are good, others are better, and a couple would massively increase the kits I would buy.

If that photo is accurate as to the 2n1 versions offered, it looks like they will be doing an SS350 and a Z/28 Trans Am racer...whether they are going to offer enough parts to do a semi-accurate Trans Am race car will be seen..  (the reason I say SS350 is they would need an SBC for a Trans Am race car, and I don't see them providing 2 complete engines...)   Right now it's all speculative, I'm sure we will find out more as the release date gets closer.   It looks like it's pretty accurate for the street version (though the wheels look tiny like the Revell '68 Firebird did), and looks like it should have a lot of potential for subsequent versions and kitbashing....

 

Interesting they have a red race car shown with '67' on the doors, there was a real one apparently in red w/ '57' on the doors..

I can't wait to see the Torino back again.  I built one when they first came out, and have wanted another ever since.  Really nice kit!

Hopefully the '67 Camaro will take to a Mark IV swap , assuming that its only engine will be a "generic" 302 / 350 ...

It's a welcomed kit regardless !

Yes! A first year Camaro! And not a Z/28. I would have preferred an SS/RS version. But I'm not going to whine too much. I'm just happy it can be built as something other than a Z/28. And by the way, I'm OK with it being an SS350.

I love the Torino too. Have a ProModeler version in a half built state for several years now. My only complaint here, and I'm surprised I've not heard others talk about this. Is that my ProModeler version has low back bucket seats with separate headrests!? Real '70 Torino GTs came with high back buckets with built in headrests. Was this a mistake only on the early releases of this kit? Or did it continue on the later versions too?

I'm also happy to see the Street Fighter again. I've always loved this kit as it was originally conceived.

Great job Revell! More fun ways to take my money. And yet I'm not complaining.
