REVELL HAS REMAINED A TOP NAME in the model kit world for decades, and continues to turn out excellent kits.
SMN report: For this model maker, the original Monogram Phantom Mustang of 1961 was a highly desirable, but unaffordable model. These days the 1:32 scale aircraft is a Revell release, but its combination of transparent components that change the normally hidden interior into a viewable display piece remains a prime example of the model manufacturer's magic.
The Delta Dagger (below) was another interest-packed Revell kit. It combined modelling skills with extra accessories, which provided tremendous educational value.
Revell's classic US cars featured luscious box art (below) and included neatly-sculpted figures.
Another inside-out kit that looks good and has educational value, the excellent Visible V-8 (below).
A pair of horses and no less than seven figures gave a sense of scale (below) to this early Wild West-era kit.
And here's the whole story, narrated by the talented Max Kohnke. It's all fascinating stuff, and the video is really interesting, so thank you Max!
Today, Star Wars is a popular line (below). The 1:100 scale Rebel U-Wing Fighter also includes digital lights and sounds. The box bottom provides information and helps construction.
