    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

I suspect for 2018 we will see a mix of reissues, modified reissues, and new tools.

Is it just me, or have the major players gotten quite tight lipped on new releases ?

Revell ‘69 Charger 500, ‘68 Camaro SS, ‘57 Ranchero, ‘76 Ranchero. 

My guesses.

My guesses. 

I can actually see all four of those being feasible! As far as the Ranchero, Revell could go three ways with those. The '57, the '70, and the '76 you mentioned.

I bet Revell will have something really cool that nobody will expect from them.

How about a mid '50's Pontiac or Olds ?? '55 - '56 Merc could be kind of nice. Or a really nice '66 -'67 Chevy short bed ?

Casey, I like your list. I'm in for a couple of Autocar trucks, if they were to happen.

Maybe Round2 will even spring for some new or re-tooled parts for some of these kits. Oh well, it will be nice to have any of them on the list back. They'll at least get fresh decals and pad printed tires.

It would be nice since Moebius Models did hudsons and tried something different would be nice to see a 70-73 Fury either 2 door or 4 door in 1/25 scale 

Maybe Amt can some how retool the Mpc 71 roadrunner would be nice and the 74 super charger

I'm sure a Revell 69 Charger 500 will come soon. I'm almost done building one!

Yeah, last few years Round2 and Revellogram have gotten away from announcing anything more than 6 months in advance. Ever since the RCHTA show went away, where they used to make an entire years worth of announcements. They also probably got tired of hearing the complaints from people when something was "late" Now they don't announce until something is well though development and tooling. While there are still occasional delays, it's nothing like it used to be

Someone I know formally connected with the former MPC told me  the tooling for the 1971 Roadrunner was damaged beyond repair

Seems like Revell has started to go to the NNL in Atlanta instead.  It's right around the time they'd be announcing the 1Q 2018 stuff anyways.
