Cutlass, Hustler, Mongoose, Ice 'T', Bandit, Biarritz, Tano And Hawker
Revell/Monogram rolls out eight new models for the car lover, Star Wars fan and aircraft enthusiast.
Six new car models in the 1:25 Scale category starts off with the classy '72 Olds Cutlass Supreme Custom 2 'n 1 Revell Muscle series. This classy chassis can be customized as black and maroon open canvas top and a fire red convertible with chrome trim. Both version s of the car feature full engine details, custom wheels, luxurious interiors, full front end twin grill and bumper in chrome and more. The black and maroon model also includes a rear airfoil, full black interior and chrome wheels.
The Chi-Town Hustler '69 Dodge Charger NHRA Funny Car is a wedge shaped bundle of horse power with its custom flame paint and decal job, oversize chrome rear wheels, eight bottom mounted exhaust pipes, trimmed down bumper, custom cockpit with driver-side collision windshield, rear airfoil, detachable body and chrome engine mounted on a reinforced frame. Zoom!
The Motor Sports series presents The Tom Mongoose McEwen '75 Plymouth Duster NHRA Funny Car is a candy stripped bundle of speed. Like the Hustler, the Mongoose, features a detachable body that separates from the frame and reveals the full chrome engine and frame. Check out the huge black pipes extending out of its sides! Double zoom!
Chill out with the Ice 'T' custom hotrod in 1:24 Scale. Painted a bright yellow, the Ice 'T' is a bevel shaped auto with balloon tires, swept over roof covering the cockpit and an air scoop pushing its chrome head out of the engine compartment. Brrrr!
Ed Roth's The Beatnik Bandit is another custom hotrod painted yellow and white with a bubble canopy, barracuda body style with custom headlights, oversize whitewall tires, huge chromed out engine fully revealed through the hood, flat rear with four rear lights and so low to the ground the groundhogs can hear it coming.
For the ultimate driving luxury be sure to take a look at the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible. This oversize tail fin beauty is oozing chrome, features a full red and white leather interior, oversize canvas canopy, whitewalls, partially hidden rear wheels and has enough room to carry as many people as most modern mini-vans. Extras include a customized front seat, a huge V8 engine and an extra long body. Classic zoom!
Star Wars fans are sure to want the Ahsoka Tano's Jedi Starfighter as seen in The Clone Wars. This easy kit comes fully painted and detailed and requires no glue. Youngsters can build their dream complete with a pilot, interior instruments and twin energy weapons.
For a flying machine of an earlier vintage crawl into the cramped cockpit of the Hawker Mk IB Typhoon with two wing mounted twin machine guns, full bomb load, custom paint and decal application, pilot and retractable landing gear. As a ground and high altitude fighter it proved to be unstoppable.
