The trailer being kitted is the one with a 5 Meter (15'/180") deck and a rated capacity of 2,600kg (5,732 lbs) I once owned a 1977 Plymouth Gran Fury police car. That land yacht with all it's glorious cop parts including a 440 rode on a 121" wheelbase and was 4,990lbs. Meaning it would fit on the trailer. I will not debate UK trailer laws in regards to weights, legal overhangs, etc. But an American car, a huge 4 door one at that can and would fit on the A4. It's quite possible you couldn't legally move it afterwards. But the one being kitted is designed for professional car transport and motorsports, not the casual relocation of an MG.
The curbside chassis is NOT in the glue kit. The poster said that shot was from Wayne, NJ which where the NNL East is held and it's a test shot of the tooling, which as others have mentioned is all cut at the same time and then chopped up/gated off as necessary for each particular variant. One thing seeing the test shot reminded me of from looking at my kit is I like how no one is saying "Boo" about the driveshaft being molded to the chassis. Is that one of those major breakthroughs, adopting Japanese curbside molding techniques?
There are a couple of big shows coming up in Austria & The Netherlands at the end of next month that RevellAG has listed on their events page. I suspect we shall see near production level versions of all 3 (4 if you count the 2nd livery) new tool 1/24 kits.
Well considering the other rumor swirling around is the tooling was STOLEN (bum bum buuuuuuuum), I doubt either is true. Maybe it's the ability of a rumor to be passed along gathering momentum and credibility along the way in the format of the Interwebs, but the last couple of kits that sold out have caused a fracas of rumors and outright lies, probably by people looking to create a secondary resale value of "RARE VHTF!!!" The last time was the '70 Cuda which sold out and immediately the tooling was stolen, seized by the Chinese, etc. But then the drag racing version came out...magically evidently considering the shared parts. Oh wait there's a restock of the '70 Cuda factory stock kit they just ran and shipped them together. Guess it wasn't destroyed in a fire or a typhoon afterall.
My...well everything in the kit has a slight tweak to it, but nothing that's requiring a replacement part prior to actually test fitting things like the tailgate in place. As for being molded in W. Chicago, I imagine there's certain tooling that never got shipped to China in the first place, especially the old Monogram stuff. Much like the Round2 stuff that has been run in Michigan. Makes you wonder if the place that's running the kits isn't used to either more resilient plastic, or manufacturing that doesn't require as much "precision" in terms of warping.
