For everyone doing handstands about vague pictures of boxes, here's the entire flyer.

I think I built that USS Enterprise back in the 1980s.  If I remember correctly, the main deck is in three pieces with some pretty big seams.

Definitely interested in the Jag and VW camper.  Have older issues of the Chevy, Super Bee and Van.  Maybe on the S10.

Even the Chevy Van is interesting. The new tires alone a improvement.

I'm in for an S-10, wish it wasn't a reboxed Syclone. If the aftermarket can make some grilles for it, I can see a few more to replicate the three 1:1 S-10's I owned.

I can't believe Revell hasn't taken advantage of their 67 Camaro for a 68 version or their 71 442 for a 70 442 coupe, and how about a 70 Dart from their 68-69 kits. They quickly came out with the 69 Chevelle on the heals of their 68. Come on guys, fill in the voids with some easy conversions.

I'll be getting a couple of the reissued '56 Chevrolet 210s because that is one of my personal favorite Chey's. I have an idea or two for the '76 Chevy G Van. I had a few for Demo's when I worked at a Chevy dealer at that time. The VW Van looks interesting especially being a new tool.

The E-Type FHC is my personal big grab from this group, but for my shop shelves I'm already getting calls on the S-10 and the VW Camper. Should be a good 4th Quarter for us.

I have missed these quarterly flyers. I wish we could get the US boxes here in Europe.

I recieved my vw campers this morning. First impressions are good, the box is very weighty compared to the bus and van versions, and the parts are nicely molded. I dont have my camera with me but will post the contents on monday.

Me too. If it were a 2wd with an Iron Duke/5speed and earlier grille, I'd get a couple. If I'm not mistaken, this kit has the wheels for a 4wd. As for the rest, I either already have one or have no interest in.

I would have rather seen them reissue the Monogram Chevy van with or without the trailer over the Revell version. I didn't like that kit even when I was a kid!

I really like the way Revell is doing the boxart now! Best of both worlds!

Still no Model A coupe!  Ahh, I guess us hot rodders had a good run for a while, seems like there has been a drought for years now when it comes to new tools.  I can't even remember AMT last gave us a new tool and the 30 came out in 2017?  Oh well, just as well I have a stash to last me until close of business!

Cheers

Alan

Alan....last I heard (unofficially), the '30A Coupe was planned for a Q1 2021 production run.  Let's hope that is still the plan!  Cheers....TIM

Always wanted to do a van with interior stuff provided. Never owned a real one but spent plenty of time in them in my younger years so would like to build one just for "old days" memories.

Been trying to get oneof those VW vans for some time. Want it real bad, but I'm afraid it's still going to be too expensive for my wallet. 

Hopefully, because it's a US distributed kit this time, it's price will be more competitive. And it will show up at the "Lobby"!

It's still going to be in a RevellAG box and most likely only sold through brick and mortar shops, eBay, and other hobby eVendors de jour.

There was a U.S. boxing of the Samba Bus back in 2010.

That Chevy van looks very modern for 1976? Weren't those stacked headlights an 80's thing!

1974 was the first year for rectangular sealed beams.

The 1974 calendar year (1975 model year) was the first use of rectangular headlights.  They were standard on the full-size Cadillacs and Eldorado, Electra and Riviera, 98, Grand Ville and Bonneville.  They were eventually used on the 1980 Chevy and GMC trucks, but were only single units at that time.

Custom grille. 

Back when square headlights were a new thing, guys would take assemblies and swap out the round lights. Happened a lot on custom vans, pickups and lowriders!

Yes, with a real tire manufacturer name no less.

ah, ok. In the UK, square headlamps in the 70's was an unusual sight. Our Ford Transit didn't get square headlights until 1978, 13 years into production. The similar Bedford CF almost entirely unchanged from 1969 right up to 1988!

But European makers were not burdened by the government rules that only allowed manufacturers to use only 4 types of sealed beam headlights.  2- and 4-lamp round headlights, and 2- or 4- lamp rectangular lamps.  European manufacturers were free to use any shape headlights they desired.
