That didn't last long, though longer than expected.

They also released the '90s Ford F-150 club cab, but again these are versions for the European market, if a US distributor picks them up and sells them in the US, of course they're going to be pretty expensive, compared to Revell kits produced packaged in and coming directly from China.

BTW this is nothing new, cuz remember when visiting my friends of VLS (later bought by Squadron) back in the early nillies, they too had re-boxed by Revell AG, Revell-Monogram kits on their shelves, and yes they were also expensive....

Still to early to know what's going to happen, and furthermore with recent trade wars between the US and the rest of the world, no one knows what's going to be the best way to get non US produced goods into the US in a economic way.....only the guys in wall street know and will play on that knowledge, to make lots of money,  Joe Average world wide will pick up the tab.

Revell Germany orders Revell-Monogram kits as bagged shots from China, which then get repackaged together with a euro instruction sheet and decals by Cartograph in a Revell Germany wrapper, in their production facility in Poland, to be sold in the European market place.

If US distributors order these euro spec US kits, then of course they will be much more expensive then those produced and marketed by Revell-Monogram.

There is absolutely nothing new about Revell Germany reboxing Revell US product...and because of that, if and when that box ends up in the US it's a lot more expensive.

Well if the prices keep going up, I guess that I'll just build the kits that I have and I have enough that I won't run out.

All the Villa Riviera  parts have always been present (except maybe for the 70s Barris version) since the beginning. The only real alteration was widening the wire wheels.

Does anybody else but me see the irony of AMT issuing the Barris Kustom Riviera without the Barris custom parts?

Here’s a pic of the original, it fits the description on Stevens website. The ‘34  Ford pick up is also listed, no idea what boxart, but is listed as AMT.

It does say Ford Cruising Van on Steven web site.  Io hope it is this one in the picture above.

That Ford van looks awesome! 

Is it just a re-repop of the "Vantom/Phantom Van" of a few years ago, but with updated decals? The only thing I don't like about the AMT van kits is the lack of interior. 

This one, though, would be okay, since it's a bone-stock factory package, I believe.

I'm waiting for this one, or at least more details! Never enough street vans.
