    Ah, ok thanks for the info! maybe I could mock something up based off an older s10 grill.

    While I'm thinking about it, is there a resin of the Cheyenne front end that would work with the older silverado kits?

    this front:

    From what I remember the HD models have the black plastic fender flares on the front and their hood is slightly different, it bulges up higher than a 1500, of course the wheels and suspension and bed, I'm actually going to make a work truck of some kind so I may use the modelhaus utility bed or I'm seriously thinking about waiting until the wrecker that revell is releasing comes out and mixing the 2 kits and making a 99 3500 wrecker out of it.

    I also want to mix the wrecker kit or utility bed with the AMT 93 F-150 to make an F-350 too.

    Ok thanks everyone!

    I had forgotten about the wave rider truck and that makes sense that it's just a reissue of that, I'll probably snag one of the older ones off ebay then!

    Ok thanks, is the suspension to make it the stock ride height included? or only the lowered suspension?

    99 silverado question
    Just a quick question, I'm getting back into building and have decided I want to make a dually version of the revell silverado I built this version back when it came out
    and I've been looking at revells website and I see this version


    My question is are they the same kit? Are there parts in this new version to build a stock truck? or is this a different kit altogether?
    any info would be great thanks!

    I'm in on this one for sure!

    ok so which is it? Either trucks are popular or they aren't? I'm not trying to start a fight and this is said with no attitude toward you, but seriously anybody could clearly see that since 99 when they last made a new truck kit trucks have become far more popular with the general public than they were from 99 back, from my vantage point (working in the auto industry) it's plain to see that there are way more trucks suv's and these crossover things than there ever was on the road pre 99.
    I just think it's a waste to not even explore this territory considering there's more truck options now than ever.

    The kits I listed would not even be a "new tooling" it would simply be a refresh of tooling they already own
    if they can have 80 different mustang kits why can't they do even one truck?
    Again this is said with no attitude toward you or anyone else just my observation
    whether revell or anybody else does a truck kit is whatever it won't stop me from building and simply put there's way more important things to worry about than arguing with someone I don't know over this

    ok I agree with you to a point, but that was 12 years ago trucks were not the popular vehicles that they've become in the last few years
    if the fact that they can make 3 cars out of an olds a chevy and Pontiac whatever without any big money spent holds true than why wouldn't it for the trucks that they HAVE the tooling for?
  15. Buildsince93 added a post in a topic Is Revell watching this thread, too???   

    heres a few they could do
    Out of the 99 silverado and the Escalade tooling they could make any of the following:
    06 silverado
    Tahoe/Suburban
    Yukon/XL/Denali
    Sierra
    Ford F-150 Tooling:
    F-250/350
    Expedition

    The ram Vts could be reworked into A 2500/3500
    These could all be done.
