Revell isn't as good as AUTOart,
they're more budget models. Your'e better off modding cheap models first so if you f*** the thing up, it's not a as much a loss as if u ruined a good model. and a cheap model can be brought up to AUTOart levels with some xtra effort :cheers

Ben Id buy a cheap Revell or Maisto like i said and mod a few of them before ya go trying to mod an e3xpensive and collectable model mate..... Would be a bit of a waste if ya stuff one up on a good one.... More than likely ya would end up ditching it

Buy there Corvette and mod that fitst then try something else

Revell models have quite a range. They've been manufacturing models since the early 90s, so the quality then is certainly different from what the factory's putting out now. Quality-wise, I'd rank them with Sunstar and Yat Ming.

The company that was the importer for Revell split with them and there is not a regular distributer for the line in the states right now.

Or, so I have been told.

I just got a Revell today and I would have to say the quality is rather poor.

Hey Gang, I recently came upon a revell 1/18 Porsche 917 Die Cast Kit...I had not seen this one before, but before I purchased it, I was wondering if anyone has this, and what kind of quality would it be? It is in kit form, so I would have to put it together...but since I don't have any revell die casts, I am not sure how detailed this is. Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks, Matt :feedback

One of the biggest market for Revell is the 1:24 plastic kits. I bet you can find plenty of them in any hobby shop or toy stores. However, I haven't seen 1:18 kit from Revell before. :confused

Anyways, Eagle Race and Revell have a close bond. I am sure someone here can explain more. I wouldn't be surprise that the kit you saw was the same as ER's 917K but in pieces. I could be wrong though.

I have a Mustang kit from Revell, and I consider it to be a little better then a Bburago kit, so don't expect much. But of course the end result is directly proportional to your ability, so YMMV.

I think Revell does the same car as Jouef/ER/whatever, but in kit form. I've seen it before (didn't buy it), cause it has a sealed body (or only doors open, I don't know :confused )
I think it depends on the price you're paying for it. If it's a good price, buy it!
