I don't have pics, but I have the kit. It is the same kit as the 'early Iron' issues. Model A frame and running gear. Simplified SBC with Six carb manifold. New halibrand style kidney bean hole rims and generic low profile wheels. In my estimation, these would be better suited for another rod. It has some new lowered suspension pieces to go with the new wheels. The old AWESOME kelsey Hayes wire rims are in there along with some other tires for those as well. The kit looks to have survived well and the updated parts are a welcomed addition. There is a 32 grill shell along with the original all chrome Model A grill as well. Run out and buy a couple, you won't be disappointed

There's also a new dual exhaust system with an engraved Ford logo on the muffler and separate aluminum exhaust tips. A very nice updating of a classic kit. Oh, and the decal sheet has not one, but TWO different shades of wood paneling for the body side indents.

Maybe we'll see some more of the old Early Iron Series updated in this fashion. I sure hope so.

I can't see drag slicks and beach sand mixing well, but maybe the sidewall indentations help?:

It's interesting to see how this kit has evolved, and while the newest wheels are quite nice compared to previous offerings (sorry, those K-H style spoked wheels do nothing for me), it sure would be nice to see this kit fully backdated to its original form :wub: :

I'd like to see a Stock version finally.

So I will stick with the Revell 1/25 31 Woody(Woodstock)

versus this Monogram 1/24 kit

Uh,

Doing a stock version of the 30 Ford Station Wagon should be no more difficult than finding a '30 Coupe for the stock parts. Unfortunately, along the way, the Monogram '30 Cabriolet with its originally tooled side mounted spare tires sort of disappeared, and every production Model A Ford station wagon had as standard equipment, a side mounted spare tire at least on the driver's side, so lacking that fender tree, you'd have to come up with a way of making the spare wheel well in the fender, and then scratch up the spare wheel mount to go with it. Not impossible, but it will take a bit of work.
