Revell sold

Postby Mark » Tue Apr 17, 2018 1:41 am

Due to bankruptcy of the parent company, Revell have been sold. It seems like they will carry on trading though.

Better invest in the FW 190 kits and associated Eduard upgrades.

They look really nice kits and with the Eduard brassin and etched sets that replace much of the kit with highly detailed resin stuff then the result should be fabulous!

I guess uncertain times are ahead of Revell at the moment. I hope there's more info about this soon. Who knows what their real plans are, but I hope Revell can stay in business.

I have been modelling for over 50 years pre- xbox, nintendo, computers et-al. Don't know about where you all live but where I live you only see kids on their way to and from school. Instant entertainment is what is the new. Kids can't be bothered and the modelling fraternity is aging by the minute.
