Revell Make 'N Take Model Building
This year's show had a special bonus for the younger attendees. Sponsored by model maker Revell and hosted by the Central Pennsylvania Model Car Club, the Make 'N Take allowed children to build their own super Chevy that they could take home for free. The kits were '57 Chevys from Revell's popular Snap Tite line, with no glue or paint required for full assembly.
Rick Haas, Revell's marketing director had this to say, "We are excited to be sponsoring Make 'N Take with the Super Chevy organization. Many of our most popular model kits are Chevrolet products. All of our model kits are designed with exacting detail and authenticity to scale. Car and model enthusiasts value this attention to accuracy. The kids will build a car at the event and later visit a local Revell retailer to purchase another model. This makes kids aware of the model building hobby."
Rick added, "The baby boomer generation built plastic models during the boom years in the '60s. They are grandparents now and are looking for activities to do with the grandkids. I can speak for myself as it is much easier for me to show my grandson to build a model than for my grandson to show me how to play level 15 of a video game."
The Make 'N Take event was held both Saturday and Sunday, with parents helping their kids build a unique take home souvenir to remember this year's Maple Grove show. - Patrick Hill
