Revell news 2018

Posted by Erich von Manstein on 01 Nov 2017, 20:50

Although not yet offically confirmed, a few sites already provide an early glimpse at some of Revells scheduled kits for 2018.

Here the 1/72 ones.

00451 - Flower Class Corvette (upgraded "Technik"-Edition of the well known Matchbox kit, includes integrated light & sound system) :shock: 12/2017
05147 - Patrol Torpedo Boat PT109 (NEW kit) delayed to 02/2018

03262 - Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf. H Tiger (re-release) 01/2018
03263 - Sd.Kfz. 7, late production (former MACO kit) 02/2018
03264 - 15cm Panzerwerfer 42 auf schwerer Wehrmachtsschlepper (former MACO kit) 03/2018
03265 - M109 self-propelled howitzer, US Army version (kit variant) 04/2018

06718 - Millenium Falcon :-D :-D :-D 04/2018

03308 - Challenger I (re-release of 1/76 Matchbox kit PK178)

And, of course, quite a few of the ususal 1/72 aircraft kits.
Spitfire Mk. Vb
Focke Wulf Fw190 F-8
T-6G Texan
Eurofighter Typhoon (100 years RAF-Edition)
Hawker Hunter (100 years RAF-Edition)
C-54D (70th anniversary Berlin Airlift Edition)
F-117 Stealth Fighter
F-16 Mlu
...

Good to see Revell taking care of the excellent but discontinued models from the ceased manufacturer MACO. Would've been a shame if those very good kits were lost.
As always, we will hear way more Revell news in january.

Fingers crossed that we will see some long awaited re-releases or, even better, a new set in their 1/72 figures range!
One can always dream! ;-)

After Revells customary press conference today, we know the intended release dates for the first 3 quarters 2018 now.
Unfortunately, again no 1/72 figures old or new. :(

Instead, we can expect the release of 1/72 vehicles at a monthly frequency.

00451 - Flower Class Corvette (upgraded "Technik"-Edition) 02/2018
05147 - Patrol Torpedo Boat PT109 (NEW kit) 02/2018
05228 - Search & Rescue Daughter-Boat "Verena" (re-release) 10/2018

03262 - Pz.Kpfw. VI Ausf. H Tiger (re-release) 01/2018
03263 - Sd.Kfz. 7, late/armoured version (former MACO kit) 02/2018
03264 - 15cm Panzerwerfer 42 auf sWS (former MACO kit) 03/2018
03265 - M109 self-propelled howitzer, US Army version (kit variant) 04/2018
03266 - Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. L "Luchs", Sd.Kfz. 123 (former MACO kit) 06/2018
03267 - Flakpanzer IV "Wirbelwind", 2cm Flakvierling (former MACO kit) 07/2018
03268 - Mercedes-Benz G4 Staff Car (ICM cooperation kit) 08/2018
03269 - Soviet Heavy Tank IS-2 (cooperation kit) 07/2018

See the complete list here:

Guess their autumn news will contain further MACO vehicles, which isn't a bad thing considering the high prices those oop kits obtain at Ebay by now.

Lets hope for fresh vehicle innovations and at least some figure re-releases in their next announcements then. :thumbup:

Sad, was hoping for a re-release of the 30 years war sets, maybe next year then...
