Can't wait for revell to make the hardtop for 5 months and then never reissue it again like they done for years now.

Having management that hasn't decided to bork a good chunk of the wholesale distribution chain will help that immensely. Quantum Capital Partners is definitely proving to be no Hobbico even at this early stage.

Bad news:  that drip rail looks awfully flat.  Didn't wanna stir anything up with that preview from months back, and now it looks like it's going to production.

Good news: the "meat" right above it seems to follow a better curve, so if it bothers you, all you gotta do is Dremel and file a line that follows the roof contour closer, then stitch in a little Plastruct strip to remake the rail.  Even if you take it painstakingly slow, prob'ly done in under 2 hours.

And if it doesn't bother you, then hey, not a problem, right?

It appears to me that the rear bumper and tail lamp lenses are 3-D printed (?)

Yes, I realise that it's a test shot; and, no, I'm not knocking anything -- just an observation is all.
