Reissue Wishlist

I'm guessing that has to do with licensing issues. Too bad lawyer's have to screw up the hobby for the rest of us, but I guess everyone wants a piece of the pie.  

FWIW, I don't think that this the issue in this particular case, but I could be wrong.....TB

The 6 axle heavy trailers (gravel trailer, flatbed trailer and tank trailer) that Revell had would be nice to have reissued again
There is a 6axle flatbed on eBay now and its £350 ($450)..
There is also the 6axle heavy gravel trailer where the bidding starts at $199
Last time i saw the heavy tank trailer it was also at around $400..

Also any of their trucks with 3 driveaxles like the Peterbilt alaskan hauler, Peterbilt canadian hauler and Kenworth heavy hauler, Kenworth oriental express
The alaskan hauler and canadian hauler are between $170-$250 on ebay now..

I sent Revell an question about those trucks and trailers just to see what they had to say.
It sounded on them that the trucks was not impossible to have reissued sometime in the future, they had to check the molds and possibly repair them becuase they are from the 70's
The trailers will probably not come back, the target group for them is to small.

At least when it comes to the trucks, most of those have just been recently released in some form. The Alaskan Hauler is just a modified version of the standard Revell of Germany Pete 359 kit, which is also the base kit for the Peterbilt wrecker that was out not long ago. The only difference between the standard 359 kit and the tri drive versions are a frame extension to add the third drive axle, of course the third drive axle and associated pieces, and the squared off front fenders and larger front bumper. All those parts are on separate sprues just added to the stock 359 kit, because this build I started of a custom bull hauler started life as the Alaskan kit but without the Alaskan parts, and an extension to the frame using a section of the unused standard frame rails from my original Can Do wrecker.

As for the KW heavy hauler and Oriental Express versions though I have never had those, I'm sure they would be just as the tri drive Petes are with the added frame extension and third axle pieces just added to the base kit. That base kit was just reissued and the aerodyne version of that base kit is supposed to be out soon if it isn't already, so it shouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that Revell couldn't add the tri drive parts.

The Revell AG truck kit tools are from the early 80's and mid to late 90's and as Matthew says, some have been reissued recently and some are coming soon.

The Peterbilt 353 came in 1985 and the 353 parts and tri-drive parts was just added to the previous 359 kit
The KW K100 came in 1982 and the Aerodyne came soon after, it has also been reissued several times in different versions with added parts and decals and was recently reissued again as the dual drive flat top, the Aerodyne is due this fall or early next year.
The KW T600 came 1990 and was modified from the K100 tooling with additional parts.
The KW W900/T900 came 1993 also reissued a couple of times in different configurations, last was the W900 Wrecker.

I agree with many of the kits everyone has suggested, as for the Duck's truck why not , you do get some usable Duck parts,a nice DM600, and best of all bring a lot of the kit  dealers on evil bay back to reality!
