Revell Star Wars Vehicle Models
« on: January 18, 2007, 03:20 PM »
For the fans of the German modelmaker Revell, there are 4 new Star Wars Vehicles to release in 2007:

Modelnumber 6659 - Slave 1


Modelnumber 6660 - Y-Wing Attack Fighter


Modelnumber 6661 - Snowspeeder


Modelnumber 6662 - AT-AT


The snowspeeder and the Y-wing are probely 1:32, Slave 1 probely 1:48 or 1:72 and the AT-AT maybe even 1:144.

All kits are Easykits, like all of the Star Wars line, except for the Republic Starship.
Personely I think that the new AT-AT is not a easykit because of the big size.




These where the models from 2006:

modelnumber 4860 - Republic Star Destroyer


modelnumber 6650 - Anakin's Jedistarfighter


modelnumber 6651 - Obi-wan's Jedistarfighter


modelnumber 6652 - Droid Starfighter


modelnumber 6653 - Arc 170 Clone Fighter


modelnumber 6654 - AT-RT


modelnumber 6655 - Darth Vader Tie Fighter


modelnumber 6656 - Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter


modelnumber 6657 - Imperial Shuttle


modelnumber 6658 - Millenium Falcon

Just heard that the collection 2007 comes out in september 2007.... so that's a bit too far away....

I also heard that for 2008 the rumors are that the Tie-Bomber and Tie-Interceptor will be made.
Also a Jedi-interceptor with hyperring (episode 2) will be one those rumors.

Impressive!  I have a Millenium Falcon model I really need to put together someday.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Is that painted at all? looks like a pretty cool model
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

All the SW Revell models (besides one) are allready painted, so you only have to cut them loose from the frame and snap em together. The only downside is the edges that are left behind... if you do not remove them carfuly, the paint is damaged and you have to paint it over again  >:(.

The Republic Stardestoyer is the only one that you have to paint and glue together yourself, but I don't have time for that yet.... as for the 20 other starwars models I still have to build  >:(.... but it is somesort of fun.... :P

Impressive!  I have a Millenium Falcon model I really need to put together someday.

Goodluck ;)

I didn't see any recent thread about this, so does anyone build/collect the Revell Star Wars models? 

Over the past couple years, I've gotten more and more into these models and find them a great way to get correctly-scaled and detailed Star Wars vehicles for relatively low cost. Some of the models are definitely kid-oriented and basically toys with lights and sounds that require minimal construction.  Others are more formal kits with multiple parts that need to be removed from plastic trees and assembled.  There are a lot of pre-painted snap-tite options that make decent-looking models when built straight out of the box or which could provide a good base for customization.  My only gripe is that scales can be inconsistent between different ships (i.e. they'll make an X-Wing in 1/48 scale and then the complimentary TIE fighter in 1/35 scale or something like that).

One of my most recent purchases was the massive 1/30 scale X-Wing.  I built it straight from the box (no paint mods) and have been very happy with it.  The model is wonderfully detailed and functional.  It looks like a proper X-Wing and has different display options with removable panels, etc.  The model is reasonably scaled to the Unleashed figures from 10 years ago, so it can potentially be used in diorama displays.  It also shows just how underscaled many of the classic 3.75" vehicles are!
