Is it just me, or has this post "kinda gone-off-the-rails"!?!+!?

I think we're just waiting for more model news. Seems like it's been quite a while since something unexpected was announced.

That's his latest shipment from Model Roundup  .  I believe that Round2 already made a video of their 3rd quarter releases back in June or July .

Yea, it has. It just takes one grumbling about "old molds" I for one am tickled pink for these old kits. Newer ones are nice, more detailed but in many cases far from accurate. Pick your poison.

Everything but the separate Galaxie was talked about in the previous Round2 videos (If I missed it, my bad)

 Glad to see as a separate kit, and do not care that it is only a curbside. I can fix that.

I agree with you regarding the curbside / promo-style of the Galaxie . I've come to appreciate the less-parts-content kits of yore ( the 1963 Nova Wagon , and the 1964 Olds F-85 / Cutlass , for example ) . Further , I like the promo-based car feature callouts on the Galaxie's chassis !  For decades , no one wanted that -- now that artifact is being embraced .

The Californian has my interest, if only for a set of wheels to finish up my '67 Toronado

Anyone know if Round 2 is reverse engineering the Californian from an existing kit or is being produced from existing tooling?  Maybe a question for Tim Boyd or Casey.

Probably existing tooling....AFAIK, the Californian was the last issue of the MPC Toronado....has never been reissued, was only out once 52 years ago apparently.

Looks like MPC made stock Toronados in '67 and '68, then the Mannix roadster, then the Californian.  Presumably, the stock tooling was scrapped along the way. 

The Californian is a pretty dreadful looking custom IMO, no wonder it was never reissued in the past...

It's from some existing tooling, last issue of the MPC Toronado as Rob stated.
