Return Of The Big TRevell-Monogram is very excited to announce the re-introduction of its Big T Street Rod model, in 1/8-scale. This is a faithful reproduction down to the tiniest details of the model originally produced in 1962. Over the years some of the molds to reproduce this original version had been damaged or destroyed, but Revell-Monogram was lucky enough to have Roger Harney, the original designer of the Big T model, still working for the company. It's a little known fact that the design for the Big T came from Roger when he created the model. This original design was later copied into a fullsize replica not once but twice.
This impressive model kit is loaded with parts allowing the builder to choose to build it one of three different ways. With the extra pieces included, builders can choose between the original Big T, or build it as an early style hot rod or a show rod.
