I don't follow stuff like that, so I had no idea. I didn't even know Revell made model kits that are specifically meant to be toys. Since I don't build models of current cars, this stuff isn't even on my radar. I assumed it was a "real" kit. My mistake.  ^_^

Yeah, there were  a couple threads on here about it... 

 

Maybe they will do a pre painted version like the upcoming '13 Challenger and Camaro kits.

Like I said... not my area of interest.

 

Believe it or not, I don't read through every single topic here...  :lol:

Unthinkable!!   ;)   So you like 1:1 Mustangs but not kits of them?  Curious...

Love the real thing. No interest in building a model of it. No interest in building models of any current cars, really. They just don't interest me as subjects to build. To drive, yes.  :D

This is the kit Ford Motor Company was handing out to the kids that went to the Detroit Auto Show in January. I knew it was lacking detail and was meant as a play car but also I knew it had accurate body lines and could be made to look like a fairly decent representation of the 1:1 car with a little work so I decided to build this quickie kit until Revell produced a more detailed kit in a year or so.

I like what you did with this except for one thing. The mold seams coming down from above the doors and across the rear fenders really stand out.

Thanks guys for all of your comments.

Wayne I normally sand out the mold lines but  didn't on this kit because it was a basic snap kit "build 'n play" and I figured it wasn't worth the effort. When Revell releases the detailed kit I will most definitely take the time to sand the mold lines out.

Loved it!!!

Very clean, and sharp looking in white.

This retro looking Mustang body style is still one of the best looking new cars. I would spend my money on a real '68 Mustang tough... And a V8 Maverick over any Mustang.

Thanks Tulio. I wouldn't really call the 2015 Mustang retro although it does retain a few styling cues from the older stangs.

This was designed from the start to be a giveaway at Auto Shows during the roll out of the new Mustang. Chassis pan was left flat and smooth so they could print the shows' logo and sponsors' information on the bottom.   We were able to get some for a make and take event last month.  I emailed Ed Sexton at Revell to let him know of much of a hit they were he told me they were intentionally kept simple because they knew kids would be building them there on the spot at the shows without access to tools or Mom & Dad's assistance instead of waiting to take them home to build. They're perfect in that regard.  We let the kids just dig in and go at them.   They're the start of a new simpler (and cheaper) "Build & Play" line from Revell. Next up will be the Audi R8 and there are already others planned.  

 

I have one on my work desk and I'm rolling it around and making vrooom vrooom sounds as I type this...

I think his comment was just in comparison of the 05-09 style vs this one

Yes you were right, sorry I misunderstood. I agree the 05 to 09 where the nicest.

In fact, isn't this the inaugural of the Revell's new Skill Level 1?  Didn't I see that the older Snaptites will be designated Skill Level 2 and the regular glue kits & full detail kits will be labeled as Skill Levels 3 through 5?

I was probably the one to write that. Honestly, I don't know that they will even use numbers for the new system, that's just how they're referring to them in the trade - "New Skill Level 1".  The boxes don't say Skill Level 1 on them anywhere, just "Build and Play".  An Audi R8 will be the next in the series and there are more planned (no idea what).   The upcoming pre-paint Camaro and Challenger are being referred to as "New Skill Level 3", I don't know how they'll actually be labeled.  This is a big thing at Revell, there's a new person in charge (name escapes me) and this is his big idea.  I heard about the new skill level thing second hand, I could be wrong about how it will affect the existing kits.  I meant to ask Ed Sexton about it at NNL East, but forgot.  I'll try to get more info.
