I was thinking it would be fun yo do a build off of great kits that you rarely if ever see built up. Just off the top of my head this list comes to mind...

AMT S/10 GMS Sonoma, Blazer $ Jimmy Kits
AMT 97 Ford Explorer
AMT 67 Impala SS
Revell 67 Corvette Coupe and Roadster
Monogram 1964 GTO
Revell 1966 GTO
Revell Shelby Series one
Revell 1955 Chevy Convertible
there are many more and I'm sure we all already have a few in our collections. Why don't we all pick one and build it by the end of the year?

Oh yea I would join this, how bout a 2005 impala done as a drag car, lol

or a 88 daytona, that I need to get done by may so this might be motivation.

If this became a build off, I would be in for sure.

I have a question though?

Don't ya think you would atract more people to join by just building kits not seen often, dosen't matter how good or bad, just an odd kit?

I'm just wondering, because most of the "forgotten" kits I have aren't GREAT Kits, but are still very buildable.

You know, this sounds like a good idea. But I don't have any of the kits you have listed in the stash.About the closest I can come to a forgotten kit is the AMT 69 Corvair or Revell 68/69 GTO Judge.
Ooh,ooh, I do have an AMT 71 Mustang!B)

;) Sounds like a great idea.

Deciding on "what's a forgotten kit" would be the issue. :huh:

I've got a '88 Dodge Charger, '69 Ford Talladega, '69 Dodge Charger 500, '66 AMC Marlin, '66 VW Karman Ghia, '56 Mercedes Gullwing.

Would the group decide what's "forgotten"? :)

I like group builds :) Deciding on what's "forgotten". :)

I'll follow along and might end up joining in. I'm in the demo derby community build right now. I'd probably have time for another one.

I can't help myself, I hardly ever build anything the way the manufacturer intends. ;)

I think what the TS is going for are 90's-early 2000's kits that were much anticipated and very well received when new, and contest tables were full of them, but now after a few years, you don't see them built nearly as often.

I'll second the kits on the list I have:

Revell 67 Vettes
Revell 66 GTO

and nominate a couple:
AMT 57 Chrysler 300C
Revell 64 Ford Thunderbolt

All the 1/16th scale Gakken/Entex/Academy/Minicraft Ford A-bones. There are even hot rod versions out for quite a few years now.

feel free to suggest other kits for the list as this is just an informal thing I'm suggesting. I'd just like to see a build that gets some of these "I'll Build them someday" kits built.

I'd be in on this. My next build up will be a box-stock build up of the Mongram BADMAN 55 Chevy. I know 55 Chevy's are pretty common, but this kit isn't. If you guys feel this is rarely seen enough to fit the criteria, then I'm in.

Since I suggested it, I think I'll set the criteria, which will be very loose because i just want us to have some fun.

Build any model that you think is a really good kit, that for the most part gets ignored. build it any way you want, and have fun.

How's that for a rule?
