Re: Alantis Models & Revell
The S2F may be an old Comet kit that Aurora picked up along with numerous civilian business aircraft that Comet also produced. I remember building one back in the 1960's - My sample had no landing gear and was little more than a recognition model, but the overall shapes and contours looked good.
Looks as if Atlantis may have sucked up a few old Aurora molds as well. On the aircraft side I see 1 /54 S2F and the 1/96 Boeing 727. I do not recall old Revell producing an S2F and the 727 is that bigger scale Aurora used for their passenger jets. Atlantis looks like they will also be stamping out the old Revell Martin P6M Seamaster and the P3A Orion. And as far as the more obscure subjects go, the Allison turboprop is back along with the Atlas ICBM with gantry and launch pad. Now if they could only find the molds for the old Westinghouse Atomic Power Plant.
Got a message from Cybermodeler. It appears Atlantis is reissuing the elderly Revell kits.
Good news is the Forrest Sherman is back out.
