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.
