I have never been a fan of Revell kits. For the most part I think they are lacking detail and pieces. only their level 4 kits are any good.

I have always been a fan of mpc/amt kits, They've put out some crap kits too, but at least they optioned the heck out of them to compensate.

I like to work just as much as I don't.

Please get your facts straight!  Hobbico, who owns Revell and several other hobby related companies has filed for bankruptcy.  Not Revell.  This is just like Chicken Little saying-"The sky's falling in!"

BTW, mainstream models and 4-door sedans will not save our hobby and Revell is not the only model manufacturer!

Keep in mind that Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a company to re-organize and stay in operation. It's not a closing down and liquidation process. As Mike stated above, it's not the Revell brand. It's the parent company Hobbico that has filed for Chapter 11.

At the rate I finish building model car kits I have more than enough to last the rest of my life here on earth. ALL the model car kit manufacturers could close their doors tonight and it wouldn't phase me one bit.
