Yeah, and I know that the Ramhargers buggy has a Model A Rad Shell. Have to wait and see, I guess. Any Idea when the kit will be out?

It should be out very soon, within the next 30 days or so I would think. It was listed as an April release, so early May or so.

I know for a FACT that the Cougar Funny Car kit WILL be out long before I finish the kits I have already started which is not really a lot, however summer is comin' and that means baseball, car shows, and cruise nights. Hopefully I'll squeeze some model building time in also.

'late May' is what is listed on Model Roundup, so coming soon, sounds like.

I asked at my shop today (mine's been on order for over a month), and I was told the Dyno Don Cougar won't be delivered until July 8.......errrrrrrrr.

Whoever gets it first, can they post the decals? I'm hoping they're more accurate than the Slixx decals which are a whole lot more accurate than the originals.

There's at least 4 listings on eBay right now, I'm might request that July 8th shop check their order again.

Agreed.

the decal sheet will determine how well this issue sells,,,or not .

it WILL be the determining factor if I buy one or not

Mine is on pre-order simply because of the decal sheet. It appears there were three paint schemes for the car. The original did not have the gold that's on the Slixx sheet. The gold hood car appears to have not been driven by Don but rather Frank Oglesby the majority of the time. If my attachments work correctly, the first two are the original paint scheme, then the gold hood with Don driving and finally with Oglesby. I much prefer the original scheme.

Here are the decals included in the kit compared to the slixx decals. Any Idea which are more accurate? The Slixx decals have the Gold lace pattern the kit decals have a multi colored circular pattern and allow more of the body color to show through.
