Revell 1966 Chevy Suburban

I was at my LHS today and talking with the owner and he showed me a listing on his suppliers website for a new tool 1966 Suburban that is being issued the same month as the Foose F-100. This was the first I'd heard of this; anyone know more? :)

It appears this version will have the "driver seat plus two-man seat" split bench seat, from what I can see after zooming in on one image at the above link. Perhaps a 1405 Panel version is in the works eventually. ^_^

Tower Hobbies has this listed as being available in late May, kinda disappointing as it was originally set for March. Still going to get a few, have at least 4 different build ideas floating around in my head!

When they attended our last club meeting, they indicated late May, early June to us.  The tooling was slower to get cut and approved and ran right into the Chinese New Year.

Yes it's been out, I have one built, but they aren't at Hobby Lobby yet. Or at least not any around here.

Hobby Lobby is pretty far down the shipping order at Revell......I am sure they want a bigger discount......

That could be one reason Dave, but I would think it has more to do with having their shelves set up and making changes several times a year. Not sure how many stores they are up to but I would think coordinating the re-set and making sure enough models are ordered and in stock at their warehouses for replenishment means a fairly large order for Revell to fill.

I would be surprised to NOT see the Suburban kit at Hobby Lobby, I figure they will be a couple of months behind.

Got 2 of the Suburbans today from Tower Hobbies--they look pretty sweet at first glance.

My local HL has sold out now on the Bronco and the Foose '56. I am assured by the clerk stocking the aisle that they will be getting. She told me that they have sold out every Bronco they get within a week, and have to keep re-ordering more. So, next time I see one, I'll snag it. Same with the Suburban when I see it.

Opened mine up today, and started doing subassemblies in preparation for painting. Wow! Am I impressed. This is a very nice kit. I only have one complaint. And it's a very minor one at that. I wish they would have offered this kit where one could have had the optional third seat in it. Making it a nine passenger, rather than a six. But, that's it. Everything else looks great. Good detail. Without going overboard, making the kit complicated to build. What I've glued together so far, fits prefect. I'm loving it. I've always been a big fan of the Suburbans. I've been waiting for years for somebody to do one. And Revell has done this one right. I do hope they eventually follow this kit up with a panel truck version. But, I'm glad to see a Suburban first.
