1/25 Revell '29 Model A Roadster 2'n'1


Recommended Posts

Apparently, several distributors got an April/May/June release sheet from Revell today showing the ship date as June 29...and the last day for dealer orders as June 10....for what it's worth. Those of you that still like the kit had best place your reservations soon, if you haven't done so already! TB

Tim,

Thanks for the warning, clear the bench!!!

Like Jim K. said! Clear the bench! That's my plan, and I can't wait! I have a few projects to "button up: until then, but I figure the '29 should be in stores by July. Assuming Revell gets them "on the water" in due time.

Emmmm. June will not be the release date for this highly anticipated kit. Sorry to be the bearer of that news. Late summer is where it's at now.

I just hope the delay is because the powers that be realized that the better the major proportions and "look" of this kit are, the longer legs it's going to have, and the more repeat and multiple sales it will generate...for a long long time.

If it LOOKS like a correct '28-'29 Ford, I really will buy multiples. I mean MANY....and I'll probably buy another one every time I pirate parts from one on the shelf too.

But if it's instantly visually "off", well, you can keep it. I'll just keep on using the old (and VERY good) AMT bodies and donor bits from other kits.

I've already got plenty of beautifully-done '60s Revell nailhead Buicks, finned brakes from the Revell Challenger, and juice-brake backing plates from the old Revell parts-packs...and many MANY '32 and A-bone frames from both Revell and AMT vintage issues.

So...I REALLY hope there's a good reason to buy this newest kit from Revell...I hope it looks RIGHT.

Let's not forget that unless you are a box art or an OOB builder.......every kit you ever buy is basically raw material.Rejoyce for all the treasure trove of extra parts in the box and buy it anyway!

I was looking forward to getting this one, next thing you know they will cancel it.

Way too much money invested to cancel it at this stage. It's going to happen.

This is a 29 Roadster on Duce rails that I built about 7 years ago, 427 ford dohc with weabers I call bongos. 4 speed, quick change, 40 ford dash dimond tuck interior, and brass trunk lid with louvers, wide whites, cheater slicks. 2009 Grand national Roadester show winner.
