I wouldn't assume Foose is spending any money on the tooling. More likely he is being paid some royalties for using his name and designs and Revell is looking for kits that resemble builds he has done in the past. If I were a betting man, I would say that the "new tool" will be more like a modified version of the existing F100 kit. Don't expect it to be just like the truck as shown on TV, they would have a bunch of money tied up in a kit that would have limits on future issues due to the unique styling.
Thanks for the tip Frank, I will have to check them out. Most of the Michaels I have been in lately didn't have much to choose from and what they did have, many were open boxes. I wonder if they are getting ready to update and revamp their kit section like Hobby Lobby is?
Same here, I attribute it to the summer weather and the need to do things outside. I have taken some time here and there to work on some kits but no major progress. My problem is that I will start a bunch of kits and then not finish a single one for months! Just this morning I opened another kit-'63 Corvette snap kit, and sprayed some primer on it and will work on it over the next couple of weeks. That is in addition to the other WIPs, some as old as 10 years! LOL!
That is one nice looking Chevelle! Always loved this model year but never built the kit as I was disappointed in how it came from AMT. You did it justice and the decals for head and tail lights was brilliant!
You can blame me Curt, I was in there at the beginning of the week and bagged 3 clearance kits!
Yep, it is that time of year at Hobby Lobby. I have come across some bargains and have been taking advantage of clearance kits. I have added 5 of the Revell 63 Convertible snap kits, love those wheels and that kit looks great when done, it's a quick build and perfect slump buster. I also scored a couple of AMT 66 Grumpy Novas- great selection of parts in that kit! I have been surprised at what has been on clearance, some Foose kits, musclecars and drag cars.
I have scooped up some kits that have been clearance priced at Hobby Lobby- Grumpy's Nova and the Revell '63 Corvette convertibles.I had a couple of old gift cards to use up and couldn't resist as technically they didn't cost me any "real" money! LOL. I am thinking that Moebius Satellite could be on the radar, although I was supposed to be thinning the herd, not adding to it!
You could be dehydrated too Charlie, especially this time of year with the heat. I always drink several glasses of water in the evening before bed to avoid such problems.
Which one Nick? A friend of mine posted some pics on Facebook from the Market Square show in Lake Forest.
