For civil aircraft enthusiasts, the classic 1:144 scale Boeing 747 tooling has been converted into the 747-8F cargo version, in the markings of Cargolux of Luxembourg. 747-8Fs were first used by Cargolux in 2011, and currently the airline has nine of them in service.
There will also be reissues of World War I biplanes, the 1:28 scale Spad XIII and Sopwith Camel (below) to match the Fokker Triplane already available to the same scale. These were some of Revell’s earliest large-size (albeit somewhat odd-scaled) aircraft kits.
The new 1:144 scale kit of SpaceshipTwo and White Knight Two (below) has already appeared in SMN, and will be joined by a reissue of the Monogram 1:144 scale Apollo Saturn V launcher, released this time under the Revell name. The 1:144 Space Shuttle Orbiter also reappears as a stand-alone kit, and there will be a limited run of the giant 1:144 Space Shuttle Launch Complex, one of the largest kits - well, certainly one of the largest boxes - Revell has ever made.
The 1:48 scale Boeing AH-64D Apache (below) now has new markings supplied, a display scheme marking 100 years of military aviation, 1913-2013.
A similarly much-loved car, the original Mini, reappears in 1964 Monte Carlo Rally winner guise, as driven by Paddy Hopkirk (below). There is also a Mini-Cooper Gift Set, with old and new Minis in the box.
At the other end of the motoring scale is the new LaFerrari (below) and going down the motoring spectrum, the Trabant kit is retooled as the 601 Universal estate car.
For US car enthusiasts without access to Revell-Monogram’s American range, Revell-Germany is reboxing some favourites such as the 1965 Ford Mustang (in 1:24 scale, so a Monogram kit) and Revell’s own Corvette C5-bodied Compuware track version. Most unusual will be a 2005 Chevy Impala police car (above top) which has also been issued in taxi markings for the US market.
Ship modellers have not been ignored, and 2014 will see a new 1:144 scale kit of the latest in non-nuclear submarine technology, a German U-212A class boat (below) plus the World War II German XXVIIB Seahund midget sub (below right) this time to 1:72 scale.
A Gift Set offering big and small Titanic models (below). They come in 1:700 and 1:1200 scales.
And if your fancy for ‘Star’ has ‘Wars’ following, Revell now offers nearly 30 different craft (below) to populate your ‘galaxy far far away’.
This large X-Wing (below) comes in 1:29 scale. Another scale oddity, but at a pinch you could display it with 1:32/35 hardware without too many misgivings, especially as it's a fictional subject.
