Revell 4th quarter releases

Recommended Posts

Revell has some goodies for us truck guys coming this winter, they are reissuing their K100 flat top with two drive axles and have also announced a new tooling of a first gen Bronco. The pic is in the thread on the car news page, I just wanted to post the truck news here.

Interesting.  I've never built the Revell K100.  I might have to get one if the price is right.

I'm betting Chief Joseph is going to create Some fat off-road footwear, body lift and accesoiries for this baby.

For the Bronco that is....

anyone here have some more ideas of what van be done with that kit?

It will be interesting to see if the Bronco is a 2n1 w/ an optional version, or what the 2nd release is.  I hope the roof is molded separately so it can be done open style.   A 1/2  roof would be nice to see down the road, and maybe an off road Baja racer version...

I'm with you Rob, but maybe the aftermarket will come out with the Baja body before Revell does. I see a bunch of these in my future with all kinds of different versions!

I already had Joseph make some killer, fat, Mickey Thompson Baja tires. Check em out on his site!

I think back to the 81 or  82 Super Ford Nationals in Detroit . Early Bronco with a boss 429 siting very low with prostreet tires under this little guy. Just a start of the dreams.

Looking forward to the K100. I'll just need to get a aerodyne roof, I think P&P has one.

Happy to see a new kit with the first gen Bronco too.

The P&P Aerodyne roof is for an 86" cab and the Revell kit is a 108" cab, the Papa truck should be a good donor though.

That's an early one, I can't tell what year the kit is since the only body modification was the turn signals in 68. After a bit of research I think a 71+ would be ideal since that is the year they went to a Dana 44 front axle.

There are so many possibilities with this Bronco. I am looking forward to this. It's like a Jeep but better! I want to do one showroom stock and then maybe another as a beach beater. The Icon Bronco from a few years ago would be a chance to use some modern bits in it as well.

Wonder what those holes on the rear quarter below the trim are...

Those are the gas tanks, minus the gas caps. The Bronco had an option for dual tanks.

The K100 should be great since the AMT Kenworth COE is out of production. Hopefully they won't price the thing up into the stratosphere...which Revell tend to do with their non snap truck kits.

I imagine it will be somewhere north of $50, still better than the $125 I paid for the Aerodyne on ebay. Round2 is bringing their Aerodyne back out as the Papa truck this winter too.

I think you're right. Might stick it on the 'ol Xmas list. You never know, maybe the wife might get it for me. Otherwise I'll have to stick with the cheaper AMT trucks I think. lol
