One of the cool things about widely-celebrated cars such as the Ford Mustang is that they usually permeate age groups, with kids who are “old” enough configuring and driving full-size models on the road, and those a bit younger driving small-scale models on pretty much any surface at home, usually getting in the way of adults walking around doing “adult” things. Luckily, pony car fans of any age can be the first in the world to own a model of the all-new 2015 Mustang during the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
That’s because Revell — maker of scale car models — will host a Make ’n Take event at the Ford booth, where children will be able to build and take home their own free Auto Show Edition 2015 Ford Mustang toy model before the actual production-spec pony hits the road later this year. The 2015 Mustang model kit snaps together in minutes, as seen in this entertaining video hosted by expert toy model assembler Tommy Simon:
Taking place at the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit, the Detroit Auto Show is open to the public from January 18 to January 26, and attendees can participate in Revell’s program program so long as supplies last. Of course, the real road-going version of the new pony will be on display at the show as well.
To note, Revell introduced its first scale model of the Ford Mustang in 1968. Since then, Revell and sister brand Monogram have produced more than 3 million examples of more than 50 different Mustang models, in scales ranging from 1/64 to 1/12, along with plastic kits, die-cast metal, slot cars and other toys.
