Revell 4th Quarter new kit announcements

Yet again, Tower Hobbies has posted information on upcoming new Revell kits before any official announcement from Revell. Great internal communication inside the Hobbico empire!

Right now I don't have any more info than what can be gleaned from the Tower listings, anything in parentheses are my additional thoughts.

1/25 Starsky & Hutch Torino (wha?!? Talk about coming outta left field! By price appears to be a full-detail kit)

Tommy Ivo Showboat (reissue I'm sure)

2014 Mustang GT (nice that the last of that generation won't be over looked, I've gotten a lot of requests and folks asking if it would be done. By the price looks like it'll be one of the new pre-paints)

Acura Integra (assuming reissue of the Tuner series kit)

1/24 Porsche 911 (assuming a Monogram reissue, but who knows?)

1/24 VW Rabbit (RoG rebox?)

1/24 1955 Ford Panel truck (judging by the scale, I'm assuming a modified version of the pickup - reissue, forgot that it exists)

Ed Roth Surfite

2014 Corvette Stingray (by price point looks to be pre-paint)

2013 Camaro ZL1 and Challenger SRT 8 (different numbers from prepaints already announced, assuming these are different colors or possibly unpainted versions)

Matt and Debbie Hay's Thunderbird Pro Street (reissue)

Snap kits:

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (assuming modified from glue kit)

1/25 Ford Police Car (assuming the new Taurus-based Interceptor)

2014 Corvette Stingray

Different #'s and cheaper price 2015 Mustang and Audi R8 (assuming these are clamshell packaged versions of the boxed kits, the clamshells usually run cheaper than boxed kits)

Well, that's what I came up with, I'd expect Revell to post something on their Facebook page over the next week or so with more information.

I assume the '55 Ford panel truck is just a straight reissue..as for the VW Rabbit, that is likely a rebox of the upcoming Revell of Germany new tool Mk I Golf. (Don't recall a Revell or Monogram Rabbit previously, though they have reboxed the RoG Mark II Golf in the past).

Oh yeah, the 55 panel already exists, forgot about that one.

I am excited they are repoping the Integra. I got one for three bucks (parts still in bags) at a flea market and stupidly sold it to a friend for ten bucks, then I started to like Japanese cars.

Definitely want a Starsky and Hutch Torino!! May snag an Integra too. I would take the police car IF it's Taurus based and can be built stock or close to stock.

Another thing I think many people are over looking is that we could also have the Explorer based Interceptor as a possibility since they haven't specified.

I don't know how we've gone this long without a starsky and hutch model of some kind.

Thanks, Jim. Most of those have been covered in other threads, but good to have them in one spot. I added the Pro Street Thunderbird on my list, I saw it but forgot to make a note when I was putting mine together.

Good to see the Pro Street T-bird, hopefully molded in white this time!

I was gonna grab an original to use under a Pro Street Moebius F100, now I can get a new one.

Any thoughts on how Revell kept the S&H Torino under wraps, yet its release date is only two months after the '67 Camaro - which had a test shot on display at NNL East back in April?

Thanks to Brett & Jim for the lists!

Showboat! Great news for traditional hot rod builders. Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead Nailhead. It was getting tough to find this kit for a reasonable price just to rob the engines out of it. :)

Yeah, thanks much, Brett and Jim!

Exciting! Add me to the number who'd love to see a '72 Torino fastback from the Starsky & Hutch tooling, but heck, S&H is pretty kool too!

I believe that is what it is...the Petty Charger w/ different decals? Or backdated to a '71? Thought I saw it mentioned here or one of the other modeling forums.

That's the idea. 73 Petty kit with different decals. Kit # I'm showing is MPC-811. Probably still tying up loose ends with box art and licensing why it's not on their site.
