Did anybody ever kit one of these? I want to build a copy of the family car. My folks had a I think 72 or 73 Javelin cardin edition which had an interior that was just as wild if not wilder then anything Chrysler was putting out. Just thought it would be fun to recreate it.

model king

I have searched both ways and couldn't find an answer to my question so here goes. I am wondering first what is the history of model king how did it get started, when, where, basically a bio of the company. I know they dust off old molds from other companies and pay that company to do a run for them but that is all I know. Second can anyone provide a rough list or number of kits that model king has dug out of the archives I am sure it may be vast

Ok what is something really dumb you have done in your life? When I was 16 maybe 17 I decided to jack my ford ltd up to change the rear brakes. It had the old style bumper jack. I picked the worst spot on the drivway to do this. The spot I picked had like a 30° angle upwards (ya you see where this is going) half way through the job I learned about a little thing called gravity lol. thank the good lord I was not near the car at the time. I just remember my mom running out in a panic.
