I noticed the MSRP on the Suburban kit at $29.95 is $5.00 more than what I paid last month at the local hobby shop. With the 40 % of coupon it will be less but not really 40 %.

I didnt see a spot for it yet... Maybe one of those empty spots will be for the charger and they may not have pulled the stickers off the side yet?

I thought the same with that cheesy artwork...lol wonder is that the same kit as the starsky and hutch car or what?

If that spot for the 83' Camaro is what its going to be then ill definitely get that and maybe that 16' Vette kit...

I noticed that a HL in Gastonia NC had some new inventory as shown above. It was mentioned in a different post that HL has decided to price label most kits at $29.99, which is certainly their right to do. I almost always buy a kit there with the 40% off coupon so paying $18 plus tax is acceptable to me.

I'm tempted to go for the Black Widow. But, do I really need another '57 Chevy in my collection? Though I do like the idea of plain business coupe. And a business coupe with fuel injection no less. That be cool for on the street. A fast way for a salesman to move his samples around the country. A quirky enough idea, that I may have to do it.

A lot of those Revell kits are level 4 and 5 which I dont remember seeing before. Granted I have not build or bought a ton of kits but 

those skill levels are new to me.  Come to think of it while I dont have any in my stash, I might have seen a level 4 before, but not 5.

Just left my local HL, at the clearance table they had:  '64 Plymouth Lawman $14.99, '71 Dodge Charger $10.79, '60 Corvette gasser $10.79, Cosmic Charger $10.79 and I bought a Soapy Sales FC for $10.79. Guess they need the room for the new kits.

Stopped in yesterday at the Hobart, Indiana HL and they finally are starting to get the new stuff.  Used the trusty 40% coupon  to pick up the Revell '64 T-bolt for the stock (flat) Fairlane hood and poverty caps.  Missed that one the last time it was out, when I was on my modeling "hiatus".

Also had the Suburban, Drag Mustang 5.0, S&H Torino, Eldorod, & '57 Black Widow.  Didn't seem to have any of the new Round 2 stuff yet.

Also did an impulse buy and got another '65 Grand Prix kit that I didn't need, just because it was on clearance for $10.79.

I would love to have the new 1/24 Meng kits at 40% off! Also with the loss of the local hobby shops, I with HL would either start carrying Tamiya, Hasegawa etc, kits or start a special order program.

Our local Hobby Lobby carries only Tamiya Primer, putty and extra-thin cement. Which is great, but I sure wish they would carry the whole Tamiya acrylic paint line.  In models, it has a few very old Tamiya 1/35 military kits. Mostly stuff like the M-41 tank, which dates from the 70s.  I was shocked a few months ago when they got in the Tamiya M561 Gama Goat kit, a kit that only came out a few years ago.  But that's the last new Tamiya kit I've seen.  I agree, I'd love to buy their Mercedes Gullwing and some other car kits at 40% off.

A Hobby Lobby just opened up here only a few miles from where I live. I stopped in last weekend and saw the Torino artwork in 3D and said YIKES!!

I hate to put down the effort of whoever was trying to do the box art, but I'm sorry------that is really BAD! It looks more like a caricature (or cartoon) of the actual car than it should. Who signed off on that?? :huh:

Better to have used the actual 1:1 for the main art with the built up on the sides.

Wow, I wish they had them discounted to this price at one of my local HL's. I would buy the Lawman and the Soapy Sales at those prices.

Not sure if you check the Trading Post very often. I started a thread in there called "Ollie's Re-Distribution."  The idea was to trade kits we got at Ollie's for other kits we really wanted more. Feel free to use that thread for trading Hobby Lobby kits as well.  It's not getting a lot of activity.
