This review covers the 1958 Chevy Impala 1:25 Scale Revell Model Kit #85-4419.  Revell has re-released the ’58 Chevy Impala in a Stock version for 2016. This was previously released in the Lowrider version and was based on a Diecast car made into a model kit. The idea was to compete with the aging mold from AMT that was originally released in 1962 and had all the chrome pieces molded onto the body, whereas 000 the Revell kit had all the chrome trim done as separate, pre-chromed parts. This kit is a Skill Level 4 for ages 12 and up and has a suggested five hours of assembly time.  There are 136 parts molded in White, Clear, Clear Red and Chrome with Vinyl tires and metal axles, pins and screws. The motor is highly detailed and needs little to make it contest quality. The chassis is well detailed and multiple parts. The interior is crisply molded with separate door panels and high detail including decals for the seats and instrument panel. The body has opening trunk and hood; the doors would be simple to open too. All chrome trim is added on;  not molded in. The tires have Whitewall inserts. Decals for the body only include a red pinstripe aside from the Stock emblems. Overall dimensions are: Length: 8″, Width: 3″, Height: 2-3/16”.

This review covers the Revell 1980 Dodge Ramcharger, Kit# 85-4372 originally produced by Monogram label in 1980.  It has seen three previous releases in 36 years! First was the original release, then in 1981 as a Highroller version with additional parts and again in 1992 in the Gone Fishing version with a Ranger Bass Boat in the original configuration.  And now Revell has re-released this 1 kit in the ORIGINAL version with all new decals.  This is a Skill Level 4 for ages 12 and up and requires 5 hours for assembly. It does show its age in the details and design. There are 96 parts molded in White, Chrome and Clear with Vinyl tires and waterslide decals. The instructions are typical book format. You get a fully detailed motor and some aftermarket wiring would go a long way on this. The chassis is somewhat simplified but the suspension is separate allowing for ease of lifting and changing the tires out. The interior is a basic tub format. There is no real underbody floorpan included but one can be created easily. The body details are crisp and as this mold was not overly used; the details are still sharp. You’ll see some minor flash but also some very heavy sprue tabs. The glass is fairly thin but still substantial. Overall dimensions are: Length: 8-3/16″, Width: 3-7/8″, Height: 3-1/16″.

How to Build the USS Springfield 1:500 Scale Renwal Model Kit #85-0602 Review
Spring (0)

Review and Photos for Right On Replicas LLC by Steven Hardwick Steven Hardwick

The U.S.S. Springfield had a long and decorated career serving in two different classes, commissioned in 1944 as a Cleveland light cruiser. Serving in the Pacific at the end of WWII earning two battle stars, its primary role was anti aircraft support; however, did do some off shore bombardment during island invasions.  In 1957 it was taken to the ship yards and three years later returned to service in the Mediterranean as flag ship for the 6th Fleet. It had been converted to a Providence class guided missile ship, serving in the 70’s as flag ship to the 2nd Fleet. Finally in 1974 it ended its career and was scrapped.

 

For the Modeler: This review covers the Re-release of the U.S.S. Springfield by Revell under the Renwal Blueprint Series. This is a Skill Level 4 kit and is in 1:500 scale. This kit contains over 100 parts molded in light gray. The kit includes waterslide decals and paper signal flags.  The kit itself has seen multiple releases since the original 1960’s release. Renwal included decals Box Art for U.S.S. Springfield (#7) only. The overall construction is straight forward and the build goes together well. As this is an older mold design, you’ll need to take your time and test fit the parts and remove any flash or pin marks you find.  Final dimensions are: Length: 14-3/4”, Width: 1.5”, Height: 5”.
