Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. I have always been curious about certain kits from Revell/Monogram, that seem to be available in different scales. Recently there has been the Jeep Honcho kit, and the Mazda Miata from Revell. These kits were released years ago with with different scales listed on the box. There's a number of examples of this. Why did they do it? I know that prior to the merger, Monogram had many well respected 1/24 toolings, while Revell focused on 1/25 scale. I would assume that since they merged, they hope to appeal to all markets, i.e. those who have chosen to build in only one particular scale. I would be interested to hear whether or not that is the actual motivation behind it. More so, I am curious about the comparison between the different scale kits. I have never done a side-by-side, so that would answer a lot of my questions. Are the kits actually the same, and are all parts re-scaled? Is it a costly thing for the company to do? Is it something that requires cutting an entirely separate tool? I am new to the hobby, so I enjoy learning about it's history. These forums have been a great source of knowledge for me, so thanks in advance for any info oldjeep.webp new jeep.webp
