Revell visit to GTR club meeting with test samples

28 June 2015 - 09:20 AM

I have included here since it relates to model information, not the club meeting. 

Revell stopped by our GTR Model Car Club meeting last night and brought some built ups and test shots.  Sadly, I only had my cell phone camera so I don’t have the greatest pictures.  Brought to our meeting were built ups of the Starsky and Hutch Ford and BMW I8.  A test shot sample of the Porsche 918 was also brought.


The BMW I8 looked pretty good, and has engine detail (for what it is).  The doors can be posed open or closed.  Apparently it will come to the USA only in the Revell of Germany box.








The Starsky and Hutch built up is not the box art model.  The delay has apparently been with the Chinese partner on correcting issues.  The built up does not have the fixed rear side glass, but it is supposedly included.









AMT 56 Ford and Revell 57 Ford kitbash question...

27 June 2015 - 10:15 AM

I am not really knowledgeable on Fords (or Mopars either).  The AMT 56 Ford chassis leaves much to be desired given its age.  Would the current Revell 57 Ford chassis be correct for a 56?  If so, has anyone tried to fit with the AMT 56?



Looking for a part from AMT 65 GTO with custom parts

24 June 2015 - 12:42 PM

I am planning on building the custom option of the AMT 65 GTO, with some modifications and using the Revell A-Body chassis.  I am missing ONE of the long rectangular tail lights for the custom rear end treatment.  I could do something different and fabricate a replacement.  But I thought I would try to see if someone has the parts laying around and would part with it.


I have parts galore to trade if desired.

Multiple in the area, including an exotics dealer view and test drive (for charity).  "THE BOSS" came along this time to be sure nothing followed me home :D
