Is this for real!? Revell 1/72nd scale USS Kidd?
« on: April 02, 2007, 03:59:12 pm »

Is this going to be a coming release?  I realize the date of the posting is April 1, 2007 and the box...  Well I'll let you all take a look at it:

Hi Mike, I beleive it is true I heard about it last year, the German post reads along the lines of after the release of the UBoat and the Gato class, now Revell are doing a gigantic kit of the American destroyer, Kidd. (Fletcher) class.

I'm not too sure about the last bit, "How the Fletchers and I won the war  von Beat Adm. J. Winston Lennon "
Still cant be sure, the corvette has been a good seller.

I for one will be buying it if the kit is as any good as my tamiya bismarck.

1:48th scale for my ships. Large enough to show gratuitous detail, small enough to stay married.

if you open the link in google there is a translater tool. this looks like one mother of a kit, even doing it as a R.C version. when will stop.

Its a wind up !
Take a close look at the kit contents in the box . There is an instruction sheet ther with a picture of the completed model .
It bears no resemblance at all to the built up one on the site .
I have blown it up below but its not very clear but you will get the idea  ;D

Nice joke... what a laugh! The instructions are from a german Lifeboat. Nice reworked photosop pictures...  ;D

Pevell must be a new corporation, maybe from Sri Lanka  ;)

Ah, so you noticed the "Pevell" then.  I fell for it at first but then realized the date posted and the bogus company name.  Still fun though.  I do wonder what's next from Revell in the larger 1/72nd models.  I have the Flower Class, type VII and the Gato.  Perhaps a type IX or a small destroyer?  I have the Lindberg Fletcher and it is loads of fun easing on full throttle.
