Just got my kit today, and after seeing the posts with the parts and instr. And seeing what's in the box, I see a similarity between the way this kit is made and the old '77 jeep cj kit. They both have individual Trim parts like hinges, lights, gas caps, interior parts, steering column, and individual chassis parts. I'm thinking we're going to see an off-road version coming down the pipeline from revell in a little while! I like what i'm seeing and if i'm right, I think that we will be seeing a lot of new things coming from them. Stephen D. Whelen36
Dave, there were picks of the kit parts that showed 4x4 gear, these kits that are coming are all 2 wheel drive. How many more versions are coming after these if there are in fact 4x4 versions of these excellent kits?? after the fords do they think they're going to do other makes of trucks like GM or Dodge ??
I'de like to see both rereleases and new tool trucks, big rig and pickup/van. But one thing I noticed is people are saying round 2 is only making rereleasea they just released a snap kit of the general lee last year and it was a new tool. i know it's not a truck but it's a possible start for the future of the company. So who knows what the future may hold for them though it may be in the distance it's still a possibility now more than before.
Even if it didn't make a lot of money or didn't sell because of the discrepancies they wouldn't fix it, it would just get discontinued and the future line of them including any other brands like dodge or chevy, etc.... Would never come to be. Something I can fix or change ( I'm a kit badger anyways) is better than nothing new at all. Having something to work with as a base point to cut apart and change that's much cheaper than resin isn't that
bad to me. This is just my opinion and I want to make sure that is out there. And yes, it should've been done right from the start.
They said, if I remember correctly that this was to be the first in a series of full size trucks???
If true has anybody heard if it was successful enough to continue the series, and what the next truck would be???
Your right guy, when you said about the injection line. My mistake, that is what he said, been a while since I saw the movie, the memory isn't what it used to be LOL.
Are you going to high detail the kit?? Like gauges, seatbelts, wiring???
I know it was a super charger set up but in the movie I remember Packard asking if the turbo pipe was ready to be put in the car, right before the wraith showed up and blew it apart. I only called it a turbo pipe because that's what I heard in the movie and wanted to make a reference point to the engine in question in the movie.
Most likely just a movie mistake just like when the vette shot through the tomb stones in the graveyard with no body damage , and them passing the same ( Volvo ?? ) car in the race scenes over and over again.
I'm really looking forward to seeing this completed, I think it'll look awesome
