I'll take a 1/8th scale '59 Mercury Colony Park wagon please

WOW! That would take up most of the space on the table! :lol:

Imagine for instance a 1/8th scale 1976 Cadillac Sedan de Ville!

I would REALLY like to see this reissued! It's only been kitted once to my knowledge and the prices for it are way out of my budget.  ScaleMates shows this kit as 1/12. IIRC it is 1/8th.

Revell, the Knucklehead again Please.

 

Yes! I'm not much into the bigger scale kits but I'd buy one of those for sure if it was reissued.

Other than that I'm staying with the 1/24 or 1/25 scale, the bigger scale kits take way too much space and I don't have any parts for kitbashing or detailing them. So I should buy bunch of stuff in order to build one detailed big scale kit, even though I usually scratchbuild some of the details myself...

Does Neue Form (or New Form according to Google translate) mean new tool? TIA

Very interested in the E-Type all the ones available now are very old tools right?

I am also interested in the big scale 300-SL.

Yes I was thinking about this kit which is actually based on the AMT kit under the body which more closely resembles a 427. A number of years ago I created a FIA 289 by grafting AMT 289 body bits onto the Academy body to get the wide fenders and side vents.

Bet that 1/12 scale 300SL is the old Renwal hot mess.

The box art on that Cobra makes it look more accurate than it is.  The kit body hasn't got those flares.

With the XK-E being 1/24 scale new tooling, I wonder if the Aurora and Revell 1/25 tools didn't get dumped off to Atlantis...

If it is a re-issue of this kit it is intended to represent a 427 body.  At the end of the Shelby contract AC Cars had left over 427 bodies but did not have the expensive 427 engines. 

They decide to install the small block 289 and sell them as "AC 289"

Wonder what the "variant" of the i8 is going to be. That car hasn't had a redesign, and Revell only has one version of it. BMW did add a Roadster (as they call it) soft top version in 2018. I might be in for a kit of that.

They have several releases of Type 2 VWs in panel van and Sambas, but none of those are SnapTite  (aka Easy Click).

Ahh I missed the generation designation, since all vans are colloquially "Type 2"s. In that case that is a whole new tooling. That also makes me wonder if that T1 "Camper" isn't one of the kits that Ebbro was involved with...

Hmm ok so that kit is that bad? I have wanted to buy the old Revell reissue for awhile but if it is no good then I will skip it.

I really hope its a type 2 (baywindow) and not a typo. I want a full detail version but snap will at least give the body and glass and everything else is pretty much available. I'd use the hasegawa chassis though since its better than the revell one for detailing. The porsche set sounds cool too

The AC 289 had a coil spring chassis. The Academy kit has original 289 Cobra transverse spring chassis with a 427 body so represents a car that I believe never existed.

I have the original Sunny kit and I always thought this car more represented an FIA car and NOT an actual 427. Not a bad kit at all, just not a proper 427 as we have known and seen it.

Better to stay away from that one unless you want to do some body corrections. That body to me always appeared a bit "thick" especially in the door frame area as those A pillars are waaaaay too heavy looking to my eyes. There's other aspects about it that don't seem right compared to the 1:1. It reminds me of Revell's reboxing of the 275 GTB Ferrari which is also way out of proportion. I just can't think of who the original manufacturer of that kit was at the moment.

Edit: I just thought of the maker as soon as I hit the send key. Renwal? They never did a correction of that kit and every time I see that beautiful 1:1 car on the box art, I immediately know that what's inside will be woefully disappointing. :(
