1/25 Revell Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Recommended Posts

Looks like the snorkel air intake and stock five-spoke wheels are new to this release?

Looks like stock wheels, tires, (or more stocker)front bumper and inner roll cage from the front 3/4 comparison.

The fender flares look stock too instead of the Bushwhacker style with the exposed bolts.

Would have been nice to see a roof as an optional part .

Great to see this coming out. Hope I can cut the hard top and doors off the snap kit and graft them onto the stock kit to make my 1/1 daily driver. Didn't want to use the earlier Rubicon kit because of the wheel flares, rear end treatment and the non stock roll bar. I'll buy several for projects.

Though it is nice to see the stock form, I'm hoping Revell keeps the Baja Claws and the off road pieces also. I know for one I'd buy a few of these not only for some building variations of the kit, but just for putting some of the Baja Claws in the parts box.

I was at HL today and they have a lot of the original issued kits on the shelf now.

Let's hope one of the resin guys comes up with some stock parts for this (hint hint). I would love to have stock doors and hardtop.

I am sure someone will have some wheels and tires.

The rear still has the diamond plate from the tomb raider version. 

It's weird getting a stock(ish) version of a kit for its 4th(ish) release. 

The decal artist needs a spell checker. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Not suprised about it lol. I had carefully sanded it off the last release without issue. Jeep kits always work for me. I've liked this since it was the diecast.
