Oh, also have a bunch of Revell 40 Fords as well as AMT 39/40 Ford Sedans and 40 Coupes. At this point I feel like I will never have time to build them all.

Tamiya 1/12 Porsche 935 for sure; closely followed by the 934, and the 1/12 Mini cooper.  The 1/6 Honda CB 750 is right at the top of the list as well..............Matt

JoHans Mercedes Benz kits, AMT 53 Studebaker, AMT 58 Chevy, AMT 40 Fords, IMC 48 Ford, IMC Mark IV and J car, AMT and Revell 57 Chevys. None of those live in my collection now as they were built when I was a teen or younger. Can't forget those Renwal 66 Revival kits, too. I am amassing them now to build again.

29 Ford from amt offers great choices of 

engines, frames and bodies (the LHS 

sells these on clearance for $14.99)

 

32 Ford series from revell have been fun to work with,

have doubled-up boxes of the coupe to save shelf space.

 

37 Ford coupe and sedans also by revell have great suspension and frame detail-

good platform for other projects, and,

 

there's a group of 40 amt and 41 willys kits here on the shelf.

 

All those kits and so little _______.

For me it's the Revell 65 - 66 Shelby / Mustang. I have 7 built up and when I find them at a good price I can't leave without one. I have 6 more unbuilt in my stash.

I currently have 3 or 4 of the various Revell '32 Fords in the works, so I figure those oughta make the list.

As a kid I didn't duplicate build very much.I can think of a couple of AMT '40 Fords and '66 Mercurys but little else.As an adult(OK,a kid in an adult's body) I've managed to accrue multiples of several kits (few of which are built yet)-the Revell/ Monogram '55-56-57 Chevys and '49 Mercury, several versions of the Peugeot 206 rally car from Tamiya and Heller(some built) and I'm sure several more that currently escape my sieve-like brain but on quick thought the most I have of one one type of model is the Porsche 956/962 with about 13 of them.I have MANY more Ferraris but they run the gamut of many different model types.
