Very happy about the AMG GT! The McLaren is pretty cool too. Now, if Tamiya releases the Ferrari FXX K, I'd be completely satisfied for a while

I also see they will produce a new tooling 934 rsr exactly as tamiya did... scheduled for 10/2016

A close look at the photos seems to indicate this kit has a lot better detail than Tamiya's 934's. Considering that Revell Germany has upped their game in the last couple years, they could easily blow Tamiya's simple/expensive kits away w/full detail and more careful details. And in Europe the prices will be a lot less. I know it's annoying to see new kits of subjects already done elsewhere, but 934 fans might really like these new kits. Looking at bumper trim, tire treads, wheels, headlight surrounds, etc. it seems like Revell Germany has the right ideas.

I'm stoked about the AMG GT and the 570S.

Strange: they tooled the 934 with all the openable panels separated.... keep this in mind for the moment that we'll see the pre-production sprues, I'm wondering if they'e using a 1/12 tamy's pict...I know... impossible.... we'll see...

They're claiming it's a new tool :runaround:
But that's a fact : looking carefully at the pictures, you'd bet it's the 1/12 Tamiya model :screwy::naughty:

The photo does look very similar to the Tamiya 1/12 Porsche...except for the race number. All the photos I've seen of the Tamiya 1/12 version have the number 24, not GT 53, as on the Jagermeister, and 5 instead of 9 on the Vaillant.

Looks like Revell might be telling the truth...

What I'd like to really know is: where is the 1/24 Ferrari 250 GT SWB that Revell was supposedly releasing???!!!!

In Korea, of all places. Search on "Academy European Classic Car". Seriously- it is a rerelease of the Italeri's kit for the Korean market- with no mention of it being a Ferrari. Only thing missing is Ferrari decals. I got mine from Amazon a few months ago.

Uh...no.

You are speaking of the repurposed for Korea only California Spyder.

The 250 SWB is a 2 seat coupe.

It was announced as a 1st quarter release during the last quarter of '15. Now due to licensing it's not going to happen. The other models announced are much further out in 2016.

Boxart of the model we now will not get (which shows a '60 model, the '61 kit has slightly different side glass shape):

Bad news I got at January 5th 2016 directly from Revell:
The reissue of 250 SWB has been cancelled.
But Revell is going to negotiate wird the licensor about that reissue - whatever that means.

I am guessing Revell US has not got the memo ( just in case it gets updated, as of 1-17-16, the listing says to be release late January)

Revell of Germany never mentioned this kit on their Homepage.
They only announced it once in a newsletter published Oktober 6th
2015.
Upon request I was told delivery would start in november.
But now they apparently stopped the project.

Is it possible they release it in US only?
If it is a license issue it could be related to EU only.

I have a modest concern on the AMG GT and McLaren. Skill level is 3. Having recently heard that RoG is enamored with Revell USA's easy build kits, re 2013 Camaro or C7 Corvette, I am thinking these cars may be of the same ilk.

The reason I only have a modest concern is most modern sports cars have a lot of aerodynamic shielding covering a lot of the chassis area anyways.

It will be interesting to see what is shown at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Dear MPWR,
I'm sorry to hear that you are upset at me over the non release of the 250 SWB. I have tried to explain to Sergio that we need the money for our development and my pension and we should allow this model to be made.
However, if you are desperate, there is an ESCI swb racing on UK Ebay...http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Esci-1-24-scale-ferarri-swb-racing-plastic-model-kit-/272114830325?hash=item3f5b4ecbf5:g:JG4AAOSwUV9Wo3a 0, I did this model myself a few years ago and even after a few pints, it looked OK to me.
Hope this may be of help and you can reinstate your support for Seb and me, well me anyway, he doesn't stand a chance against me this season.
Yours,
Kimi R.

Seeing that up-close photo, there's no way that is 1/24th scale. Too many of the details are too fine, finer than a Tamiya 1/24, and surely finer than Revell Germany. From an angle to hide the opening hood/door as much as possible.

Has to be the 1/12 Tamiya kit.

I think the Boxter is just a rebox of the Revell snapper, which has 37 parts, including a pair of metal rods and two screws, so it's not like wasting money on developing a brand-new kit.

McLaren 570 is nice, but I'd like the P1 instead.

Maybe their budget ran out paying for the new AMG GT and Mclaren 570S licensing rights. :rofl: All kidding aside i wouldn't mind a new generation boxster, 911, or even a Mission E concept model. A P1 or a P1GTR would also top that list too.

I love the Boxter, especially the original. In my opinion, it is one of the very best things Porsche has done in the last several decades. It's a car built purely for simplicity, performance, and joy- without all the tedious trappings of luxury and exclusivity. A true, honest to god sportscar- the likes of which are incredibly rare in contemporary car manufacturing.

But I have zero interest in a new kit of one. :grinno: The Tamiya kit is all the 1/24 986 that I need.
