I gotta say I'm extremely happy with the coming years releases.

Beyond the new castings I'm kinda happy with the Foose '67 Charger. I loved that build.

Really looking forward to the '57 Ford! The kit looks perfect in the photos.

I hope the '57 Chevy BelAir ragtop will have the windshield frame molded to the body rather than a clunky, ill-fitting chrome piece like the ones in the '55 Chevy and '59 Cadillac convertibles!

Did I see somewhere that they were going to re-release Boothill Express?

I could have sworn I saw that.

Anyone know?

Thanks!

1/35 scale, VERY cool kit with working steering, working rear suspension, working outriggers and functioning wrecker boom. It has been issued several times as a military wrecker and once as a funky civilian wrecker in white with chrome parts.

Is this the civilian version?:

And is that a skunk figure???:

Why in world would they make the '53 Corvette in 1/24 when almost every other Corvette they make is 1/25???

it is highly unlikely that after buying at least 6 different Revell Corvettes in 1/25 that i am going to buy a 1/24th.

I really think that is stupid. I am sorry, but this makes no sense.

Sorry, rant over.

Very simple explanation. It's a reissue of the Monogram kit. That's all.

Actually, the VIN does identify V8 cars. The number will start with a "V" on V8 cars.

Here's the Factory ID guide showing how the read the VIN (originally calles Serial Number)

http://chevy.oldcarm...resto/57011.htm

Also, weren't the V emblems deleted on the "sixes"?

I know that on the "Fuelies" they were plated in the gold color.

Anyone know how this compares with the AMT '53 Corvette (other than 1/25 vs 1/24)? I'm building the AMT kit now and it is a nice kit, but I have ideas for another '53 Corvette. Since they are re-issuing the kit and the AMT is fairly easy to find on Ebay I have options.

What's up with that Willys? That's not a pretty box.

The Rat Roaster should be a very interesting kit - I will be looking forward to seeing what the parts look like.

Hope they add the Stock parts from the El Camino to the 66 Malibu wagon

this time since they put the hot-rod parts from it in the Recent 2n1 El Camino!!

I have the original's of both. El Camino is Stock Only

Wagon needs the hood, tires & hubcaps from El Camino to be stock!!
