And one BIG surprise for the VW T1 fans...



Get your creative mind in gear with the following question:

10 November 2014 - 12:38 AM

Which existing kits would you buy again if certain newly tooled parts were added?
(And yes I know very well, there's something like the resin aftermarket)


- Amt '71 Charger.


if Round2 tools up a new grille with hidden headlamps, rearbumper with the std. taillamps and Daisy spoke mag wheels on fat tires (optional sidepipes)


-Monogram '69 Super Bee:


New flat or power bulge hood,slight rake and 70s Keystone klassic wheels on fat tires



Small note, it's better to list 2 or so and name the parts, that need to be added or reworked, then list a whole slew of possible all new projects, if you would look at them from a cost and tooling design perspective.

A rule of tumb is that every cavity costs $1000 and every part except the body have at least two.

So try to come up with something exiting new without breaking the bank.

Engine packs brainstorm

12 September 2014 - 06:53 PM

Hey guys...


I always wondered why model kit manufacturers, tool and retool the same (basic) engine over and over again, whenever a new subject needs that power plant, thinking it's a waste of valuable resources, which could've been spend in other feasible projects.


So my question for you (cuz I'm not that knowledgeable on the matter) is not only, what engines need to be tooled as a stand alone tool, which can either can be used in a kit, or as a parts pack, but also the parts breakdown (please list) including optional (aftermarket) parts to dress it up, or making it not street legal (motor sports)


And last but not least please list the cars/trucks they were used in and what color they are.....


Let the creativity begin...



Wheel Part Pack brain storm...

12 September 2014 - 06:37 PM

What wheels (rims) would you like to see included in a Round 2 wheels part pack?


The catch to this question is, that they have to be in R2's back catalog (tooled up by Amt, Mpc, Ertl, Lindberg or PL in the past) and you have to list, the kit(s) they came in.


Note for the moderators:


The question started here http://www.modelcars...93300&p=1262095


But think the question deserves a separate topic
