as mentioned in the past, a 1970 Ranchero GT or Wagon would be a kool
addition with the Revell tooling. Even a convertible would be nice ! I've
always loved this kit !!! 😇👍

Thx Eric.  I had not heard that before.  TB 

There was also a problem with the width.. It was small... The hood in my Pro-Modeler kit was anyway...😣

I didn't have any issues that I can recall with my hood and shakers fitting on both of my builds. Also, it is rumored to have the Twister Special decals in it!

Here is a screen shot of the decals from Wes model car corner .


That's great news indeed and shows that despite the small crew in charge of US releases, the passion is there, and can only applaud that! Anyway put me down for two!

What are folks' preferred sources for Ford Calypso Coral paint that would be needed for the Twister Special?

I'd check Scale Finishes or MCW. One or both will likely have that colour.

Finished mine last night.  I did have the shaker hood problem.  Ended up just gluing the shaker to the hood and I had to remove the carb to make the hood shut.  Had a little trouble getting the front and rear end on as well.  Didn't remember that issue with my last one.  Hope to post the pics soon.  It's mine and my dad's birthday weekend, so I've been busy. 


I really like how the ones others have doe came out.  I wish mine looked that good.

watching Chris's vid ,did anyone notice that Revell put the  Torino GT body in the box  ,you can see the GT emblem on the side of the body !

There is only one body for both kits.  The previous issue of the Cobra used the GT body, the instructions mentioned having to remove the trim.

I left him a message stating that the twister decals needed to be added with those side stripes....

Why? Twisters were only in Calypso Coral, so the color wouldn't match either. I assume he used the side stripes because he wanted to and they looked cool, which is all the reason anyone needs.
