Young & Oldtimer
Young & Oldtimer: The dream of many car lovers
Not every car enthusiast is always on the hunt for the latest model. How great the interest in older vehicle types is, can be seen at classic car meetings or special rallies, where teams dressed in style with their old treasures go to the start. If you want to live out your dream of a young- or classic car in a variety of ways, Revell's stylish model building is just the thing for you. The popular hobby, however, is much more than just handicrafts. Craftsmanship is in demand, and technical and historical interest is aroused in the reproduction of sophisticated vehicles. The intensive occupation stimulates to occupy oneself in detail with certain specialist areas. Another aspect of this interesting leisure activity is the relaxing effect of creative activity and the training of fine motor skills. Revell's model building products range from junior kits to demanding model building kits, so that experienced hobbyists, beginners and children will all get their money's worth.
Citroen CV or BMW Z1? Model builders are spoilt for choice
Young & Oldtimers occupy a large place in the Revell model kit range. The special models inspire with extraordinary design or technical refinements and do not only appeal to automobile fans. So it's no wonder that many hobby craftsmen and women love to copy the special car types in the model. Many passionate model builders are already flirting with the next lovingly detailed model from Revell while doing the handicrafts for their current project. Unlike in real life, it is much easier for model builders to realize their dream car. The available budget plays a subordinate role in the decision for a certain model. In order to avoid disappointment, however, model beginners should pay attention to the difficulty level when making their choice. Models such as the VW Beetle 1970 Cabriolet or the Dodge Charger R/T from 1968 are suitable for gaining initial experience. Experienced professionals demonstrate their skills on the T1 Samba Bus from VW.
Revell offers model makers the opportunity to follow an exciting part of the history of automotive engineering with its Young and Oldtimer models. The US sports car Corvette, for example, is one of the classics whose fascination has been preserved to this day. The Revell model resurrects the 1958 classic in all its beauty. But not only the sporty speedsters are in demand among model builders. Vehicles like the BMW Isetta with a 250cc engine are also worth remembering. The "hugging ball", as the Germans lovingly called the car during the economic miracle, is also a must for every Young & Oldtimer collection. The Isetta on a scale of 1:16 inspires the hobbyist with rotating wheels, movable doors and a swivelling steering column.
Customize models with high-quality colors
Some model builders awaken memories of bygone times while making their models. Some may have owned a VW Beetle or a T1 Bus in their younger years and given their vehicle a very individual look. If you want to revive the memories of the wild years of youth, you can revive your cult car. With a fine brush and the right colour, this can be achieved with a little skill. The high-quality accessories can be ordered together with the model kit comfortably in the online shop of Revell.
