First issue Revell 30 coupe

Recommended Posts

While I was wrapping up completion of the "Simple" 30 Coupe build I remembered that I had completed another 30 coupe 5 years before so I took a couple pics of them side by side. Then I realized that I hadn't really shared that build on any of the forums that I frequent because I wasn't happy with the pics I took at the time. So I took some new pics, and can now share it with you. (I apologize for the dust)








Here's a summary of the parts I used. (It's been 5 years, so I'm doing this from memory) If you have any questions feel free to ask.

body- Altered States further chopped top, Tamiya military color

frame- Revell 40 Ford x-member

front suspension- Revell 40 Ford

rear suspension- Revell 40 Ford

Grille- Revell 29 Ford pickup

Engine- Model Car Garage Offenhauser intake, AMT 49 Merc Offenhauser heads, Replicas and Miniatures of Md Edmunds air cleaners, scratchbuilt right angle distributor.

wheels and tires- Modelhaus

Here's link to the build thread if you're interested.

Kool AV8 Koop - Nice build

I wonder if Revel will offer either the coupe or roadster with a flatty

I built a roadster flatty a couple of years back with a motor from the 32 Tudor

Since the A roadster has been back for 18+ months and the 5w less than a year I'd say we're probably at least 2 years away from any modified tooling of those kits. A different body style with a flathead would be great (please Revell, no more Edelbrock flattie speed parts. Something different please. The Navarro heads in the 48 coupe were a step in the right direction 😊 )

Liking what appears to be very large diameter headlights. May I ask what source?


The came out of my parts box. so I don't know with certainty, but I think they may have been from the Johan 30 Mercedes coupe?
