Revell announced a new 1/72 F-22 Raptor kit, based of new tools! :applause:

Details:
Kit number: 04386
Release date: October 2007
List price: Euro 14,99
Parts: 100
Length: 264 mm
Span: 189 mm
Skill-Level: 9

With new tools, this kit should be some better as Revell´s former 1/72 kit #04618 from 2001 (probably identical with Italeri´s kit #1207 from 2000).

Anybody who can confirm that Revell´s former 1/72 F-22 kit was based of the original Italeri tools? So I knew, some years ago Revell also adopted Italeri´s 1/48 Raptor kit.

I can't confirm about the older tooling, but with this new one, is it really a concern? Though I hear it's not the easiest thing to get info or measurments on this puppy, right Mike? ;)

Hoi,

The F-22 is growing on me. Might be due to the PR it has been getting and how it has performed so far... So i am eager to see what RofG will come out with. They have had some great new tool kits this decade.

The new raptor will not be a rebox of the italeri kit. Its a brand new tooling and looking at their latest productions it should be fairly impressive!!

Just ordered mine, can't wait to start it; haven't built a modern fighter since my 1/32 Tamiya F-16 that was finished in '05. Kit looks good from pix I've seen on the 'net, going to detail it out. Glad to see they included the 600s.

This is one of the best models .That rc jet model really shows the amount of time you spent on making and turned this to be a beautiful model. That is closer to the real thing than any of the other models .
