    I think the A990 Super Stock version has already been let out of the bag so to speak, but will it be a Sedan body this time around or the same hardtop bodystyle?

    The original issue kit had no decals for the center hood color spear, so you had to figure out how to best to that yourself, either before or after you applied the blackout area on the hood. Now, the spear decal is provided in both Saturn Yellow and Apollo White, and decals for the edges of the blackout hood area/pinstripes are provided.
    One thing to be aware of is the front bumper/grille/headlight surrounds piece...yes, piece, as in it's all one piece. The headlight surrounds should have the plating removed before painting them body color, but that's not the easiest thing to do without damaging the plating on the bumper or grille. I also recall the rear bumper to body fit wasn't ideal, either, at least in terms of their being enough surface area to bond the two cleanly together. Getting the area under the rear spoiler fully painted can be tricky, too, unless you add some pins to the pedestals and paint and mount the spoiler separately. It's a pretty typical late '80s Monogram kit, though, so overall very good with the expected simplification of assemblies.

    Here's the decal sheet from the 2012 reissue of the 1/24 '70 Buick GSX kit:

     
    There are no gauge decals, but there are a (very) few engine compartment decals to be used.

     No, it also works if you copy the url (web address in the browser's address bar), then use then add the IMG tags fore and aft, just like Miles was doing:

    I'm posting this from a six year old MacBook (also with the older, no longer supported OS) and running Google Chrome, without any issues. It's not a blanket problem with all Macs.

    Open message.
    Select "Leave conversation" from the "Message" drop down menu (grey rectangular box at top right).

    It looks like there's been a change in how the molds themselves are designed now at Revell. I haven't purchased many "newer" Revell kits, but the sprues appears a bit hexagonal, and the runners have some interesting terminations, too.

    You want brackets surrounding only the img and /img, not the link you paste. Works as you mentioned if done that way:

    What other color are you planning to paint it? It's a krazy kustom fire truck, sorry, lorry.   Seriously, though, I bet 95.3% of people who buy it and build it box stock will paint it red.

    1/25 AMT 1923 Ford Model 'T' Delivery Van
    Interesting bit about the four Nestle' brand graphics/decals which are to be included this time around. I'm guessing Ovaltine will be one of the four, considering the demographic this kit is aimed squarely at. 
    "The Kats at AMT have resurrected another long lost favorite, the 1923 Ford Model T Delivery Van! Not only have they brought it back in Retro Deluxe™ packaging, they’ve teamed up with the folks at Nestle to create the Sweet ‘n Special Edition! The kit will feature a huge expanded decal sheet with optional markings from four of Nestle’s most recognizable and historically delicious products!"

    Should be out in late September/early October. Not so sure about the decals, though.
