More New Scale Model Kits 2015


With March 1st just around the corner, we're already two months into the year of 2015. So far, it looks a little slow out of the gates as far as the model kits trickling through. There's a union strike in California, and many of the models we're waiting on are probably floating out in the ocean just off the coast. So as soon as that bullshit is over, it will take some serious time to catch up, eventually we will get some models coming in.

AMT has issued the Man From UNCLE Spy Car kit. It doesn't have the TV show tie in artwork logo on the box, but we all know what it is. The kit hasn't been out in decades, so I'm sure some modelers are glad to see that hit the shelves. As long as we're talking TV and movie models, the Lindberg Flintstones car will be out again. This is a fun kit, well done, and the "stone" roller wheels roll. I built one, and I still have it from when it first came out. Like I said, it's a fun kit to build.

The big hit this year will be the Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino. That's on my list for sure. But folks have been wanting that kit for years, so it's a given that it will be popular. Dragon models plans on launching a 1/6 scale Tumbler Batmobile, to go with their 1/6 super hero line (which are pretty much Marvel chracters so far). It will be huge (and I'm sure a bit expensive), we'll have to wait and see.

As I write this, the Revell Ford Raptor truck model should be out any day. It's a snap kit, but hey, it's the only Raptor kit in town, so you'll have to live wth the snap aspect, or cut the hood open and install your own engine. The 2017 Raptors are already on the show circut, and that truck uses a 3.5 engine. The 2014 Raptors (which is probably Revell's model kit) used a 5.4 or 6.2L engine. You can get those 5.4L engines out of some of the 1997-2003 Ford F150 kits floating around still. Mustangs also use a 5.4L, starting in 1996. So a conversion is possible.

Atlantis models mentioned they will be releasing a model of the Invaders UFO Flying Saucer from the 1960's TV show. It looks like it might be the old Aurora / Monogram kit, but that's fine. That's a good kit. It even has an interior. I'll buy one for sure. Can't wait to see it.
