Ford Bronco Half Cab Sandman II


Recommended Posts

Interesting, so it appears that they used this trailer modified to hold a waverunner in the Silverado Waverider combo kit from the early 2000s. It makes sense now since back then it seemed like a strange trailer for a simple waverunner with how wide it was and with the twin axles.

That's good stuff, an interesting that they repurposed it for Waverider hauling duty.

The trailer is rather crude, with styrene tires and such, but it's a perfect match for the buggy again, and I don't think we'll be seeing the SIlverado/Waverider combo kit ever again:

Revell also had a smaller, single axle trailer that was much better suited for two motorcycles. Was found in the Rough Rider Datsun set, Ridge Runner Courier set, Husky Hauler van set, among others. It must have been damaged by the time the Chevy 4x4 set came out. It would have been a much better fit for the Wave Rider.

I doubt that, as the it was re-issued in 2003. I think it was more due to the Waverider being so huge.

Odyssey is nice, river rat boat weird. Need motor for mine. Wave rider was pretty big for that trailer, those things are huge 1:1, heavy. Stupid fast, had one to 78mph a couple times, Fun

See that single axle trailer would probably have been more appropriate for the waverunner, pretty much the one in the River Rat kit.

However can we appreciate whatever is happening with the trailer tongue on the Mr Sandman image on that ad?

If anyone knows anything about this, you're my first guess. 😉

Sorry...this is new news to me as well....plus, since the Hobbico bankruptcy/debacle, my contacts with Revell have been few and far between. 

I'm surprised by this offering, but presuming the source behind the announcement legitimate, it's certainly an interesting choice.  I don't believe I have that Sandman buggy in the stash, and the half cab Bronco is cool too.  I'd buy one, FWIW....TIM

Im going to be honest. im a kid at Christmas right now over this kit. I check on this topic every day to see if there is anymore news/info

I for sure will buy multiple copies. i dont care much about the bronco but the trailer and buggy. I would love to build this in a matching color set with some odd combos, like my el camino kit, my f150 kit. 

I just can't wait to get this in my hands

I'd be a buyer just for the buggy and trailer!!!

 

Yeah, don't need another Bronco kit and I already have the half cabs from Olson Bros, so the Bronco might be traded off. Surprised they went with the stock body and not the Baja with the rear wheel openings cut.

Not sure, but it looks to me like the trailer wheels and tires came from Revell's 1/32 snap kits. As I remember them looking like that.

Yeah, that's what they look like to me...never had the trailer, but built several of the Revell 1/32 snap kits as a kid..I remember building a custom El Camino w/ dirt bike that had wheels and tires like that.  Plastic tire that the wheel fits into, then snaps over the axle end.
