The problem with asking individuals what kits they want is everybody has their own pet projects. People want to build the <insert year> <insert obscure, off brand car here> that few others would care to have. When you solicit ideas with no constraints you will inevitably end up with a huge list of wildly different ideas and subjects. In short, it's useless. Most people don't look at the situation beyond themselves - "I would love a model of..." - and NOT "here's model will the MOST people want and has multiple building options and opportunities for additional kits.

Just about every thread ever started on this subject gets as many requests as there are posts.

That being said, I will go on their FB site and request something with four doors and a wagon of some sort as well as a mid-seventies economy car that wasn't even popular when new.

Right on !!  They would be better off giving us a list of subjects and taking votes.  Votes at hobby stores, votes at model events and votes on the internet.

I'm sure that I'm not the only person that wants a '57 ford 2dr wagon with a ranchero option...

That cannot be a real facebook page, my filter blocks access to facebook unless it is turned off, and it is not off, and I had access to that page.  I would beware of it.

Think you're onto something with that link... I just clicked on it & it sent me to "Install Messenger for Facebook" & hundreds of random peoples statuses! Nothing to do with Round 2's F/Book page.

Wouldn't it be better for them to have it on their website also? Not everyone has a Facebook account, especially me. However, my vote would be for a nice '68 or '69 Chevelle SS396. They already have good tooling for the chassis with the '69 Olds.

I am a drag builder, so anything drag is cool, but, yes, they need to make things that will appeal to a larger audience.

 

That is why I would ask for a 71-73 Boat tail Buick Riviera. Lots of ways to build them and one that has never been done.

 

As Mr.Smith pointed out, everybody wants their own thing. I just want something that will sell so they can keep making kits! But for selfish reasons, I ask for kits that have a broad appeal. Like a Cheetah race car! Not only never done, but this thing would sell world wide!

I am pretty sure it isn't bogus. There may be some difficulty with the way the link is posted, or with browser settings. If you have a facebook account forget the link and do a search for round 2 models. I do agree most people want very special items but eventually alot of people tend to ask for similar items. Think of all the kits that were not main stream over the years. Because 10 years old want to build Hudsons, or Edsels...? No, the seasoned builders asked for kits like these long enough and they were rewarded when they finally made it to production. If the question is out there at to what new kits you would like to see, what could it hurt to throw you input out there?

Everything I get when accessing them via my own Facebook page shows that it's legit.

Why? Revell already has a 68' Chevelle!

Not so sure about that. RM did the 65 Z16, 1966 Street Machine, 1967 SS/ Pro Street, and the 1970 SS/ Street Machine.

AMT (MPC?)Did the 1968, 69, 71 and 72 I think. Several people asked for a 73 Chevelle or Laguna S-3. That would be a pretty awesome kit. The Collanade cars haven't recieved much love in plastic form. I would have rather of had those than Chevettes, Omni's and Escorts like MPC kitted.

AMEN. Good grief, what percent of the reponses are of the "build the boring sedan I drove to high school" variety??

Didn't that just get reissued as the Police Interceptor?

Yeah, seeing how they just released a brand new 57 ford kit that already has the correct wheelbase for wagons and Rancheros.  

 

I've got a good feeling about them doing a Ranch Wagon.  A very good feeling...

Bearing in mind that Round 2 also issues and reissues a lot of sci-fi and monster stuff, here's one that seems to be gathering support on their Facebook page. There have been some limited-edition and hugely expensive built models, all hard to find. Disney licensing fees might sink the idea, but I'm in.

Interesting that I couldn't find any movie stills online. The Disney copyright police must be doing an excellent job.

Been a longtime rumor floating around inside the industry that someone's working on that.  I've got a good feeling it might happen sometime in the next year or two.
