Recommended Posts

Isn't it about time for Shad to gift us with the first video from 2020? I am truly Curious to see how Round2 starts 2020.

They sure like reissuing that '70 Impala a lot recently.  I hope they mold the Fire Chief version in an authentic Cranberry Red that can be polished out.

Great to see that 65 Fairlane stocker. That is one I've never had, but always wanted. When will it be available?

I've always though the Fairlane stocker was silly loking with those enormous drag slicks front and back. And whats with that hood overhang? Although as far as Coke decals go, they missed a cool opportunity by not adding them to this kit as sponsorship decals.

What IS the deal with that hood? Is it from some other kit? :wacko:

Just what does "Street Stock Strip" tm mean?  Its not street, its no way stock, I guess if its four wheel drive it could blast down the strip.🤣

So, they go back to the well for the '60 Ranchero, and the '41 Plymouth... The '65 Fairlane Mod Stock, is the 3rd out of 9 potential Mod Stock kits. I am excited to see that.

The Grumpy Jenkins Vega is very nice to see. That leaves the Mustang & the GTO. I read a whole lotta Guff about the GTO kit, so it will probably remain a mixed bag of a kit, with two sharply drawn sides. The "Haterz" and the "It's the only Game in Town" guys.  I have no Monkey in That Circus, let me tell you. The Mustang is a kit I should know, but my memory draws a complete blank on this kit. I'll wait to see what it looks like on the shelf. For Now, I don't need one.

It will be interesting to see what comes out over the next 6 months. Round2 will sell me three  of the Mod Stock kits, and a couple others. ('70 Fire Chief Car & and the Pinto Popper, at a minimum)

It has been a good year already, at least for me.

Seems like it's the MPC '88 GT kit, solid chrome plated headlights(!!) and all, maybe now falling under the AMT label?

Grumpy Jenkins' 1972 Vega P/S . 

If this were the only kit that Round2 releases for MMXX , then I'm okay with that !

____________________________________________________

That MPC 1988 Mustang GT was last cosmetically-updated for the 1987 model year . Under that so-so reskin , it's the same old Mustang Fox Body kit that dates-back to c.1979 . It's not terrible ; it's just not stellar . I just hope that those totally incorrect B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A tyres are still included ( not ! ) .

____________________________________________________

I have the Ranchero kit in its last iteration . I may have to get another one now... Chevy Mark IV engine notwithstanding ( haha ) .

Grumpy Jenkins' 1972 Vega Pro Stock !!!!!

Y'all can thank me for the 88 Mustang, I overplayed for one earlier this year. I still could use another one though for the body kit. I'll have to see if the headlights from the Revell notchback fit it.

Early Grump action FTW. Mustang GT ok, agree on BFG's. Needs Gatorbacks from Vette kit. And an HL fix. 5 spokers would be cool.

Sold my Ohio George 60 Ranchero, need a 60 though. Dumb. So I'll pop that too.

Curious to see what the "Coke" extra is in the '60 Ranchero?

Calling it a chest puts me in the mind of those old deep freezer type chillers with the sliding top.

That's an old box art.....done mostly for WalMart run of kits. All had that logo on them and almost all of them had bad box art. The hood fits on the model....someone didn't even look at it when they spent 3 minutes doing the box photo.

Since the Fox body fans get their favorite Mustang back, it would be nice to see Round 2 throw some love to the 3rd gen F-body fans by reissuing the MPC '92 Camaro Z28 and the insert tooling to make a stock '92 Firebird GTA out of the Knight Rider issue.

Assume it's December 31, 2020. If it shows up sooner, you'll be pleasantly surprised. B):lol:
