This is for first half of 2012 only. 2nd half will be announced in April time frame. Remember, the plastic manufacturers do not announce (or I believe even attend anymore) the New York Toy show.

The full detail 2010 Camaro SS should be out in January.

As a level setter to the overall market, Revell did say their biggest selling kits are Snaptite and wear the bow tie emblem.

Also, Revell did indicate that 2012 2nd half will have some interesting announcements. Stay tuned for more on that.

Now here’s the detail and a picture album link.

Revell

Tony Nancy 22JR Dragster Set - 1/25 - Reissue
X-34 Landspeeder™ - ?? – No scale, but based on figures, looks to be around 1/25-24 scale
Ferrari Enzo (Snaptite®) - 1/24 - Supposedly new tool. Likely based on previous Enzo kit, but by the time you simplify, new tooling is likely cheaper.
Peterbilt 359 (Snaptite®) - 1/32 - Reissue
‘50 Olds™ Coupe 2 n 1 - 1/25 - New tool. Multiple options. Revell just received test shots so mounted on a display board. Expect late 2Q2012.
‘62 Corvette® Roadster 2 n 1 - 1/25 - New tool. Multiple options. Appears to be new body on top of Pro Modeler C1 Corvette chassis and engine. Revell just received test shots so mounted on a display board. Expect late 2Q2012.
‘57 Ford Custom 3 n 1 - 1/25 - New tool. Multiple options. Revell just received test shots so mounted on a display board. Expect late 2Q2012.
‘56 Ford F-100 Pickup - 1/25 - Reissue
‘67 Chevelle™ Pro Street - 1/25 - Reissue. Air cleaners may have been modified, but will need to dig out the Revell kit in the basement to confirm. I may be thinking of the AMT tool
‘65 Chevy® Impala™ Convertible - 1/25 - Reissue
Audi R8 Spyder - 1/24 - Repackage of recently released Revell of Germany new tool. This kit does have an engine based on RoG photos
Lamborghini Countach - 1/24 - Reissue
K.S. Pittman Willys Drag Coupe - 1/25 – Modified reissue of Revell’s very nice Willys. The wheels on the box art look different but I was unable to get a confirmation
Cadillac® Custom Lowrider - 1/25 - Reissue
Corvette® Grand Sport - 1/24 – Reissue of last run of Accurate Miniatures’ Grand Sport. No plans to produce any new kits at this point, just sell off remainder of last run.
Stacey David’s Rat Roaster - 1/25 – New tool based on Revell’s very nice 32 Ford. Too many mods needed to do a modified reissue. In my opinion, this may spread into early 3Q2012 given there are no test shots as yet
‘77 Chevy® Van - 1/24 - Reissue
GMC® Pick up w/snow plow - 1/24 – Reissue, but with snow plow blade added.

Monogram

‘70 Plymouth Road Runner - 1/24 - Reissue
Peterbilt 359 - 1/16 - Reissue
‘31 Ford Model A Rat Rod - 1/25 – Reissue
‘29 Ford Rat Rod - 1/25 - Reissue but looks like new decals. Will need to confirm by checking original in my stash
Bad Medicine - 1/24 - Reissue
‘40 Ford Coupe Street Rod - 1/25 - Reissue

Revell of Germany

London Bus – 1/24 – Just being released by RoG. It is full detail, including an engine
No other RoG new announcements were available.

We'll have to wait and hear from RoG. Did you know that a decal maker is making alternative liveries for the Revell DTM's? I believe it is Shunko. And since the DTM cars have been the same since 2009, that may be the way to solve that.

I do hope the new 'vette comes with the hard top. Really pleased to see a decent kit of the '62 - my favourite 'vette at last. (I didn't rate the old AMT kit)

I'm really looking forward to the 50 Olds and the 57 Ford. I've always liked the 1957 Ford, but the AMT kit with the opening doors never quite worked out for me.

That 1950 Oldsmobile 88 won the Carrera Panamerica in 1950, the first year for the event. I will have to talk to Ed Sexton about making another version(city of roses PAN AM car) :)

Do a little research if your interested in some different liveries. Shunko,Reji, and studio 27 have some.

Well it looks like Revell will issue the 1950 Carrera Pan Americana Oldsmobile winner based on their new Oldsmobile kit with special decals. Also Moebius says they will do more racing versions of the 1953 Hudson Hornet including a stockcar and possible Pan Am version. The Hudson Hornet ruled NASCAR for several years back in the early 1950's.

Its amazing how much the diecast makers are pulling back. I only saw a couple of them at the show. I guess that production cost increase the Chinese manufactures added last year is hurting. Of the American manufactures, GMP is being broken up and other will follow.
