New Revell Model Kits for 2015


Just want to mention some kits that Revell has announced for the upcoming 2015 year.


  • Revell 1957 Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon 2-N-1 - Since Revell's 1957 Ford 2-Door kit has become a popular model, this kit should be another hit for them. I'm sure it's based on their earlier 1957 kit. It's a 2-N-1 model, so chances are, it will have extra wheels and maybe some engine accessory options. This is also a 2-Door, so I'm thinking more along the lines of a commercial car, for a house painter or a handyman. Should be a great project either way.
  • Revell Honda Civic Coupe Si - This is a reissued kit, but a popular one. Originally one of their "Tuner" series, it features optional wheel sets, engine parts, and fascia options. I would say this is the same quality as Revell's Acura Integra kit, which one of the best models they ever produced. This Civic issue will have a box that says "Fast and Furious", though it's a good kit, and doesn't really need that movie tie-in to sell it.
  • Monogram Ford F150 Ranger Pickup Truck - This is another reissue, but a welcome one (for me at least). This is an early 1980's Ford pickup. Back then, indeed from the late 1970's, Ford used the Ranger name on their full size F150s, before the compact truck was introduced years later. This truck model represents the 1980 to 1986 series. It's also 4WD.
  • Revell Stone, Woods & Cook Willys Gasser - This was released just a few years ago, but it's a longtime popular Revell kit, and should make drag racing model builders very happy.
  • Revell BRE Datsun 240z - It's been a few years since this model has been out. It makes a good companion to the Datsun 510 kit.
  • Revell Auto Transport Carrier Trailer - Truck builders will be looking forward to this kit. I don't think it has been out since the 1990's. When assembled it holds about 3 or 4 cars.
  • Revell 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Hardtop - This is a great model by Revell. Boy is this car long and big! The thing that impressed me most about this model when it first came out was all the engine detail. It's packed full of parts. Every bit of space under the hood is filled. The wheels and tires are exceptional as well. Just a great kit.
  • Revell 2013 Chevy Camaro ZL1 - Revell just issued a prepainted model of this car in 2014, I suspect this is a more detailed glue kit of the same model for more experienced builders.
  • Revell 1940 Standard Coupe - Another kit that Hot Rod builders are looking forward too. Though I'm sure it will probably be build stock in most cases.
  • Revell P51B Mustang - This is their large version 1/32 scale kit. This classic kit includes a Merlin engine and an optional pilot figure. I want to say this will probably be an RAF version, or Britain based decals for the Army Corps.
  • Revell UH-1D Huey Gunship - This is another 1/32 kit. Familar as the working horse of the military in Vietnam. This is also an older kit, but a popular one.


There are some gems in that list, something for everyone. Let's hope Revell keeps them coming for the new 2015 year!
