Hey Carl.
I'd say the 68 Dart, 70 Challenger, and 71 Cuda. All by Revell, and all go together without any issues almost every time.

Wow, I'm shocked! Either I missed it or no one's responded that they built multiple AMT '57 Chevys. Can't recall how many of those I've built over the years, but that's been my 'go-to' kit.

I built an AMT 701/2 Z28 18 or so years back (the older kit,not the newer tooling I suppose?),but I'll be building one possibly a 30 day OOB build staring on the 15th. Any hangups to look for?

No not for me on the last build just the normal clean up. The exhaust had the most clean up of mold lines. Keep an eye out for mold lines between rear window and door they didn't show up until after I primmered it. It is a build I love probably because I had a 71 long time ago. That is the car I almost died in because of a drunk driver forcing me off the road and down a hill on my roof. I miss that car I think that's why I keep building the kit thinking of the memories I had when I do

Yer right I thought of that lookin' down through the list. Any kit, any manufacture (AMT, Revell . . .)Posted Image

Funny you ask, because I keep buying and building the same things.
Like the 80's racing imsa mustangs from revell
also the 70's era funny cars. I have done the Jungle Jim vega about 4 times
and planning o do another one.

in the past 3 years I have build the 69 shelby from revell 3 times
and the AMT 67 shelby twice.

...amt 60 chevy trucks, so far im not done my first, but i love this body style and its a pretty nice kit.
...


I'll second that. A recent discovery. I'm on my second and on the look out for more as I really should build one with the stock motor in it. They're not easy to find here.

If you consider the Monogram NASCAR Cup cars from the '80s and '90s as one kit, I currently have 65 of those on the shelf and probably that many more unbuilt out in the garage. :)

This is just one set of shelves in the model room:

Another group would be the Revell '70s era funny cars in both 1/16 and 1/25, I've got a bunch of those too!

The old AMT Grant King sprint car is another versatile kit that can be built several different ways.

I've got a few more of those to build.

WOW!! this is a trick question cause i dont have more than 5 finished kits and they are all different. i have 20 or so of the 70 pro street super bee. if i had to go with "soon to be finished", i have 6 or 7 of the lindburg 64 dodges going and another 8 or 10 on the shelf and i still buy them when i see them cheap enough.

Thanks for the info. Sorry to hear about the loss of the 1:1 (especially in that manner!),glad you weren't "called home",we'd miss your builds :) I always liked the body style,JUST missed out on one I REALLY wanted a few years ago at a Super Chevy at Bristol Motor Speedway to a cute redhead-lady,was a '71 Z28 LT1/4 speed #'s matched (not that that mattered to me,I was buying to drive and enjoy ;) ) car in a non-correct (again,didn't matter to me) dark Charcoal Metallic,and we redid one back in high school shop (Auto Body Repair shop-along with a '73 SS Chevelle that had a trasnpanted 454,same owner of both),a '73 fake Z28,man that was a GORGEOUS car!!! :D

Drew, while I'm not much into circle track cars, I have been a fan of your builds and magazine articles. The innovative building techniques you've shared have really been helpful to me over the years. Keep up the good work!!
