News from the hobby

Salvino’s Petty Oldsmobile

Salvinos JR new releases a Petty late 70’s Monte Carlo that will represent the 1980 Nashville winner and a Bobby Allison Buick Regal.

Bobby Allison Regal is the old Monogram tooling they bought. Gatorade #88 will be the markings/sponsor/livery. Just waiting on re-tooled tires for the Gatorade Regal.

Should be early/mid July for those 2 kits.

Moebius 66 Ford Flareside is out.

Also, it seems the Model King Service Truck 65 Ford is now available in a few places.

Canada will now be getting the Revell 68 Chevelle and 69 Boss 302 Mustang. Because of a low production run, we didn’t get them first run.

Indycals is releasing decals for this year’s LeMans Ford GTs car’s 66 through 68.


Interesting thing about those Ford GT LeMans 2017 kits …. The Revell NA has Revell decals in it, the RoG kit has Cartograf decals with more details. Same plastic kit otherwise.

As of this podcast, the #85 Wynns car just won the GT AM class. A couple decal guys have already expressed interest in that car, even BEFORE the win. (follow up note - this may have been disqualified after the race for fueling irregularities)
