I just buy what I like..... If I like a kit then ill buy a case or 3 . Last first of the Revell Lowrider Cadillac (then Donk) was supposedly the only run, so I gathered up 20 or so of them.... then a few years later the California Wheels lowrider one came out, It is by far one of my favorite kit, so I bought 2 more cases of them. Same with the Revell 2010 Camaro SS kit.... Great kit, In MY OPINION one of the nicest newer kits in years, I also have a 1:1 2011 and many ideas for them, so I bought 3 cases total. So for me its a matter of just having what I like to build on hand.
Then you find the older issues that are harder and harder to find, and increasing in cost. The revell Tuner series Honda Civic coupe and Acura Integra, the Monte Carlo Aeroback, the AMT 454SS truck, AMT Baldwin Motion 70.5 Camaro..... I buy/trade for every one of them that I find. Ive got some kits in my stash that I have 10-30 of,just for the fact that I like the kit and have lots of ideas.
