I could have sworn I heard they were being discontinued. I really hope that's not the case. I would have loved a Resistance Y-wing.Anyone has any news about new kits from Revell ? I took a look around and there's nothing for Ep9... I would have loved a kit of the Mandalorian ship!
While looking around I found they are now the official distributor of Bandai kits in Europe, but I hope they won't stop with their simpler kits too. I found the scale and relative cheapness of their sets perfect to be displayed with my figures. I don't have the space to display Hasbro ships (and I don't have the patience and skills to build Bandai models )I could have sworn I heard they were being discontinued.

I've been looking around and it seems they still have the Star Wars license, but apparently this year they are only repacking the TLJ kits they made in 2017, and they are not making anything new. You can find them in Europe in new boxes, that look almost identitical to the TLJ boxes but have only Vader on one corner of the box.Revell USA went under back in mid 2018. What was left was bought out by Revell Germany which eventually stared up a new USA branch but the company is still kinda messed up and hasn't really recovered. They probably couldn't afford the SW license with all that going on, especially competing with Bluefin distributing Bandai in the US now.
Not sure at all but I (perhaps incorrectly) assumed so, seeing as they're showing two liveries and have done some pre-painted 1/144's earlier, apparently. Sure hope so!Are we sure these are pre-painted? That would be a first for their model lines.
Hehe, only if your telekinetic mojo is working.DD, are these pre-painted ships pre-built as well ?
Ooh, yeah, that one isn't actually pre-painted. IT's molded in colors, but not painted. Comes with stickers and decals. They are great kits. The smaller line are usually just molded in grey.Not sure at all but I (perhaps incorrectly) assumed so, seeing as they're showing two liveries and have done some pre-painted 1/144's earlier, apparently.

I think I posted a pic like that somewhere. Let me see if I can find it.Hello! Could any of you please post a photo of the revell resistance A-Wing Fighter next to the Action Fleet rebel A-Wing? I know the first one is huge, but I would like to compare them before buying one. Thanks in advantage!
I made one final mod to this model kit today. This model kit did not have any gun turrents. I had a spare Hot Wheels Millennium Falcon. I took a pair of pliers and pulled out the gun turrents. I did not have a tool for my dremel that was thin enough to drill a hole. I found a nail that was about the same size in diameter and lightly hammered it into the middle of the gun station on the top and bottom. The gun turrents fit perfectly and are able to rotate with no issues!Custom YT-2000 Otana 3D printed model kit. The Otana is from X-Wing Alliance. It was originally an all blue color. I sprayed it with a light gray primer, almost white, added in some details and weathered it. I really liked the color I used for the engine glow, which was Ice Blue. Lastly I sprayed the stand all black and painted the Alliance logo. I like how the Otana is the same size as the Action Fleet and Revell Falcons.
