Revell "The Firefighter"

Postby jimb on Mon Feb 16, 2015 12:58 pm

So, last Thursday I wrote to Revell inquiring about a possible reissue of "The Firefighter". It hasn't been around for a while, and eBay is asking crazy money for it. Here is the response I received today from Revell:

"Thanks for your email. We can definitely look into reissuing the Firefighter kit. It was done back in the 1990s and I'm sure it would do well again.
We'll see what we can do. Thanks for writing.

Interesting! Will we actually see it anytime soon? Who knows, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Hey Jim, It never hurts to ask ....I figure we ( us Fire Apparatus Modelers) have a 50/50 shot at it...either they say yes or they say no so what do we have to lose....Thanks for asking them....Gary
