  1. Revell's 68 Mustang GT 2n1 kit

    Yes, it began life as the Bullitt Mustang diecast
  2. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    So far the only thing I've seen is from the flyer they put out pre-bankruptcy (which for all I know could just be a photoshopped Mach 1):
  3. Revell '69 Boss 302 Mustang

    A little column A, a little column B...
  4. I’ve said it in other threads and I just wanted to reiterate it here, the bankruptcy was 100% on Hobbico/Great Planes/Tower. Revell had been turning a profit and even with their parent company (and main distributor) in serious trouble were only ~$800,000 in the red for 2017. Their parent had a loss in 2017 of something like $30 million.
  5. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    Doubt it. Just found out the other day new Revell US is not going to be the importer for Revell-Germany. Distributors are going to have to buy straight from Germany. Which might work out for the better, Hobbico was only ordering RoG restocks every quarter. The Dist’s I’ve talked to expect to be able to put an order in every month.

    They probably will just photoshop them into the box art, which was built from test shots. Pretty standard for box art models to be missing decals/final engravings and details/etc. that the production kit will have. Note that there are no underhood decals shown either.

    Some better/larger pics.

    Thanks for pointing that out! It wasn't me, I swear!

    Right now, a tentative December and we're taking pre-orders (shameless self-plug) https://www.megahobby.com/products/preorder-1968-chevelle-ss-396-1-24-revell.html Just a heads up, we take payment up front on pre-orders which we've found helps the whole process go a lot smoother for all parties involved.

    Should be out by the end of this month.

    Don’t tell them you have an old kit, you have to tell them you have the current issue of the kit. That’s like Parts Mooching 101.

    Does he mention how many Piranha drag cars were built in real life?
  14. What type of car is this?

    Speaking of prototypes, there was a prototype Packard made that would have reintroduced the brand for MY 1999. They could not secure funding and the project failed. https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/SJ14/Motor-City/lots/r112-1999-packard-twelve-prototype/181083
  15. JO-HAN Maverick kits

    Yep! iHobby 2014 I believe.
