According to an email I got from Revell, they stated there were many delays but it will still be produced for spring 2012.

just did some research and saw something about late January. ANyone remember the 2002 kit? It took like a year after they said it would be released for it to actually hit shelves if I remeber correctly.

Revell had a setup at the Atlanta NNL this past weekend and I talked to one of the reps. from Revell and he stated that the kit release date which was set for January is most likely pushed back to early February due to a few small minor issues. It is definately not canceled so whoever reported that was misinformed. They had a builtup on display which is merely a prototype. I was told that there were no new parts from the last issue except for the decals. The decals on this prototype were very thin and the orange bled through so I asked about that and he stated that the final kit version decals would have no bleedthrough and would be very bright. Here is the builtup.

Thanks for the insight . Can not believe that after all these years the only item they have changed are the decals . :cry:
But i guess it's better than no kit at all :)

Anyone else notice NO Goodyear logos anywhere on the car? Hell its a shame the kits probably still has the Goodyear molded on the tire.

The Goodyear logo was deleted from the tire and replaced with decals in the 2003 release.
