Funny enough, the girls and I were just at Hobby Lobby earlier today picking up some Revell products for a Pinewood project I’m doing (#DriveShopPineBlock – stay tuned!), and then we returned home to find some cool news from Revell sitting in my inbox. The Illinois-based model company has entered into a three-year partnership with car builder Chip Foose for six new model kits that will join Revell’s existing Foose collection. Here’s what they have to say about the new kits…

Two will replicate Foose’s real-world car designs, complete with original tooling, for the first time ever in the scale plastic model marketplace. The other four will be re-issues of earlier Revell model kits that will be Foose-ified with Chip’s personal design modifications.

“I grew up making models, and it put me on the path to being a car designer. Partnering with Revell lets me share the pleasure of both model building and custom car design with others, including people who have seen my work at car shows or on TV programs like OVERHAULIN’. Revell’s model kits make it possible for anyone to literally get their hands on the one of my car designs.”Chip Foose

Revell’s first ever pre-decorated model glue kits featuring Foose designs, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7 and Dodge Challenger SRT8, will be released in Q4 2015. They will feature Foose-created paint schemes, wheel designs and special Foose renderings used only on the Revell box art.

“Chip Foose is an icon in the custom car world and admired by every car enthusiast, including our customers. Being able to work on his cars through our kits gives builders an up close look at the details of Chip’s designs. Our new Foose kits will give both the casual model builder and hard-core enthusiast more opportunities to do that, ‘own’ their own Chip Foose cars, and have the thrill of ‘building’ them just as Chip does with his full-scale, one-of-a-kind vehicles.”Lou Aguilera, Revell VP and GM

The two exclusive Foose cars will be selected by Foose fans and Foose himself from a list of six Foose masterpieces: his 1934 Ford Mercury-inspired “Stallion”, 1935 “Grand Master” Chevy Master Sedan, 1936 “Impression” Ford based roadster, 1965 “Impostor” Impala, 1956 Ford F100 pickup and Hemisfear custom supercar coupe.  Collectively, the six candidates have won six major industry awards, including the prestigious Detroit Autorama Ridler award and America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) award. Voting will open on the Revell and Foose social media sites in June 2015.

The series will include full glue and paint model kits as well as Revell’s first Foose pre-decorated glue kits. It will be released over a three-year period.

For more details, keep an eye on the official Revell website.
