I ordered four from SMH as soon as I saw the info on them. Been wanting one of these for a long time. Rumor is the same company will be doing the late seventies Monte Carlo and the Grand Prix 2+2.

Thats great news ... i dont remember if any model of a 80īs 442 cutlass exists anytime?

May be with this kit will be the end of my project to convert the old Jo-Han ī77 Cutlass with resin nose into these car?

So please, please dear sirs from Salvinos create more other dont existing cars like the BGN GM-cars bodies (run in 80īs) like the Buick Apollo, Olds Omega and Pontiac Ventura

It would be nice to see the 2+2 in 1/24. In my opinion that would let it sit nicely next to a Monogram aerocoupe and not look shrunken.

With that said anyone willing to tool new kits and keep the hobby thriving will see my support.

I was told by the owner that cars raced in 1981 thru today will be done in 1/24th and items 1980 and older will be in 1/25th...

I will probably order a few 2+2 as soon as they become available.

This looks like a real neat kit, but has anyone thought about the price. I know companys need to make money, and may be its a sign of the times, but this hobby is getting harder and harder to enjoy for me, just thinking, Blake.

I have paid 25 to 40 dollars for a resin body only, with no windows or chrome plated parts and needed work to look good when painted plus another kit for the chassis. If these kits are quality pieces and come ready to build a complete kit out of the box I am in. Hopefully this maker will cover the black hole in the race kit market of a lot of the 60's and 70's cars that were raced but never produced in a race kit or street car kits.

I spoke with Rick from Salvino's JR Models yesterday and all is proceeding with a end of March target for shipping of the models. A very nice conversation as always and here is a link so you can see the tool and also see some of the early 3D work you can see how the the body will be done, I for one can't wait to get my hands on this kit. Also we may have some other news from them very soon so keep checking
here is the link

It appears in the tiny photo of the body, that an important body line is missing. All of the resin bodies I have seen are missing that line because they were mastered from the old JoHan 75 Olds Cutlass body which was totally different on the sides.

I forgive the resin makers because they only had a limited slate to draw on. There is no reason for a new tooling to miss that line, it is a design feature on the 1:1 street and race cars. The line is hard to see on the street 442 because it is where the striping line is.

I could be wrong about the line being missing from the new body, but I sure can't see it in the picture. I am not a perfectionist rivet counter but why not get it close to correct? The line is along the side between the wheel wells and from the front to rear of the car, mid way up.

Easy to see in the pic of Cale's Olds.

Good detail there, I have sent a message to Rick from Salvino's JR Models and will see what his reply is.

That line is harsh and exagerated. The factory line was not as pronounced and as it was massaged by the teams each car has a varying degree of it or not.


I am just glad we are getting a kit.

What does the chassis, engine, interior, etc... look like? I'd be in for several of each kit, if fairly close to correct details are there. Looks awesome upon initial viewing. The Franklin Mint Petty car was close, but missing some key details. This could be great news if done the right way. Thanks for sharing with us.
