The Ford Ranger has been the number one selling vehicle in America for over three decades. It’s hard to argue with that kind of success.
This review covers the Ford Ranger Pickup Truck 1:24 Scale Revell Model Kit #85-4360. This is a nice clean kit with some pretty good detailing and it is one that can readily be improved with some additional work. Just adding some foil to the trim and a wired engine makes it a standout on the display shelf. This is a re-release as it has seen other boxings in the past.
This kit has 78 parts molded in white, clear and chrome with vinyl tires. The decals are newly designed for a two-tone color scheme. The instructions are well presented, although there are some errors in it. It has a nicely detailed engine and interior. Finished dimensions are: Length: 7-13/16", Width: 3-15/16", Height: 3".
Construction and Detailing
Assembly starts with the motor. At fifteen pieces it’s a pretty basic V-8 with molded in detail but it dresses up well if you add some wires. There’s no oil filter on this one so you’ll have to fab one to give it a complete look. When you’re done set it aside to dry.
