No clue, although I'll bet somebody here does know.

Here are some kits I found that are not on the list. Or then I didn't see them, that's possible too.
But anyway, I'll delete those pics when you get those you don't have moved into your Photobucket. There are some AirFix kits that you have as MPC versions, too. http://public.fotki....model-box-tops/
And will Dragster kits qualify? Or then European cars that are in Gasser etc form?

Hey W-409, thanks for the pics! This reminds me, I have three Henry J kits to upload. What company should I list them under? Weren't they bought out by Ford or something? Certainly, Henry J wouldn't merit having it's own gallery, would it?
As for dragsters, I wasn't really interested in including them, cuz I find they're so far removed from real, actual cars, and I feel pretty much the same about NASCAR, Indy and sprint racers, dune buggies, diggers, monster trucks, one-off show cars, salt flats record breakers, Euro, Japanese and that sort of thing. No disrespect to anyone, I just had to set limits to the scope of this project. However, I have included many funny cars, gassers, altereds, early modifieds and NASCARs, driven in part by my own romantic nostalgia for these kits!
Will post more updates ASAP. Thanks, guys! Could NOT have done this without you! Keep 'em comin'!

Actually I have no clue either about the Henry J. Maybe someone else knows this better...
I thought that there's something like that with the Dragsters, since I didn't see any. I think we all need to thank you for doing this project!

The Henry J. was built by Kaiser-Frazer and named after Henry J. Kaiser. (It was also built under licence by Mitsubishi in Japan.)

Thanks, peekay; I think I'm gonna put up a MISC category, to throw in the Henry J, Duesenberg, Cord, Hudson and Packard kits I have. I feel like I should also add the Austins, since Revell had at least 7 gasser kits.

I guess you could theoretically put Henry J kits in with AMC. But, by that logic, AMC kits should be in with Chrysler...

Hello Greg, how does a thread get pinned?
In the meantime, I just uploaded these 33 kits to the galleries:
