`87 Buick GNX and Buick Grand National

Have either of these Buick`s been kitted in 1/25 scale?


`70 Plymouth Cuda "AAR" 340 + 6 pack-Revell

12 August 2014 - 08:25 AM

Now that Revell has released the stock `70 Cuda Hemi car as well as the Sox & Martin `70 pro-stock Hemi car has anyone heard anything about a `70 Cuda "AAR" kit in the works anytime soon?

 

A 1/25 scale replica of this venerable Mopar has been LONG over due. Revell`s 1/24 scale attempt at this car was sorely lacking in many respects. Revell`s newly tooled 1/25 scale replica of the `70 Cuda is a much better platform to build from...yea I know there are those who have issues/concerns with the newly tooled kit but; it`s a far sight better than the old MPC `70 Cuda annual kit...IMHO.

 

Prior to the  initial release of the stock `70 Hemi Cuda there was talk of the Sox & Martin kit being the next spin off from the new tooling and the third spin off would be a `70 "AAR" 340 Cuda.

Whats the scuttlebutt..inquiring minds wanna know!!!   :-)

 

I trust I`m not the only one eagerly await a new `70 Cuda "AAR" 340 + 6 in 1/25 scale.


1/25 scale Volkswagen

I`m aware that there have been several  1/24 scale V.W.`s kits on the market but has anyone released or cast a `60-`70 era Volkswagen Beetle or van in 1/25 scale?


2015 Dodge Challenger SRT "Hellcat"

14 July 2014 - 01:53 AM

Has there been any chatter about a kit version of the soon to be released  2015 Dodge Challenger SRT "Hellcat"?

 

If those of you who are not familiar with the "Hellcat" I have posted info about this factory warranted 707 hp supercharged 6.2 liter Hemi, four inter-coolers, torque-flite eight speed automatic car in the "General Topic" forum under the subject name"1:1 Mopar_Dodge`s Fastest Muscle Car Ever_2015 Challenger SRT "Hellcat".

The Hellcat even comes with factory installed dumps and 15.4 Brembos on all four corners.

Cannot wait to get this model on the workbench!!!


1:1 Mopar_Dodge`s Fastest Muscle Car Ever_2015 Challenger SRT "Hellcat"

If Dodge seemed to have taken a pause in the past couple of years while the old muscle-car rivalry between the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro reached new heights, it's making up for lost time with a quickness. Hot on revealing the 707-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcatfor 2015, Dodge came forth today with an official proclamation: The Challenger Hellcat is the fastest factory muscle car to ever sprint a quarter-mile. Put that in your tires and smoke it.

Dodge says under the auspices of the National Hot Rod Association, it timed the Challenger Hellcat at 11.2 seconds and 125 mph down the strip on stock tires — faster than any production Mustang or Camaro, excluding those purpose-built for drag racing. When Dodge swapped the stock Pirellis for drag slicks, the Hellcat made it 10.8 seconds at 126 mph. The closet competitor to the Hellcat would be a 2013 Shelby GT500 with 662 hp, which lags about 0.3 seconds behind on stock tires.

You can watch the video below to see Dodge's versions of events and a run versus a 1971 Challenger for comparison. The rest of Detroit won't let itself see only the Hellcat's tail lights for long.
