Even though you have no need for more than one? I just got an Etzel's Speed Classics Stutz Blackhawk land speed racer. That makes 3. I have a disease.
Is there a rare old kit that you can't resist buying multiples of?

I buy up every AMT original issue (actually the only issue) 1965 Dodge Coronet "Hemi Charger" i can find. I have 6 of them, mint in boxes, that will never get built, because they are worth around $200 each.

Your answer all depends on, how much green stamps you have to spend, and a location to store them all.
some have it,, and others don't...

AMT '58 Ford! Lack of more disposable income, and intimate knowledge of the work involved to make an accurate model from it, prevents me from further attempts to corner the market!
Had two 1/1s, plus Mom & Dad had a two-door wagon when I was a kid.

I started collecting a few of the early 60s fords (62 Galaxie, 62 and 63 Fairlane) that haven't been re-issued, but then wondered why and sold them.

Revells original tool Caprice police/taxi/firechief car. It represents the 91-92 model of the whale. It has a great radio/siren/radar set up stock wheel covers and good accurate detailing.

MPC Datsun pickups. I just like the looks of the 1:1 truck. I think I've got every issue except for the second (stepside) drag version, and the monster truck (which I don't particularly want). I bought the first ('75) annual on closeout not realizing how well done the kit is (the box art doesn't really clue you in). The Dodge D-50 kit is probably just as good, but for some reason that one doesn't do it for me (though I've got a couple of them).
Over the years, other kits have seemed to "find" me: MPC '33 Chevy panels, AMT '28 Ford sedans, AMT '69 El Caminos. Most of these were "builders", but were extremely cheap and in most cases had the unique parts (all three of these share a lot of parts with other kits that have been issued many times, and can be found reasonably). I've brought home a lot of Mustang IIs (both AMT and MPC) too; it's not a car I'd ever own in 1:1, but I like the looks of them. I'll look at every AMC-related kit I spot at a show, too...

I can't seem to pass up reasonably priced vintage parts lots. you know the ones that haven't been touched since the sixties. there is just some thing about finding the parts that particular person didn't use or was hoarding ,seeing how they organized or approached building models. And it's probably a reminder that I should put those cool parts to good use. I also like all the extras like people , tools ,guns ,figures , surf boards, motorcycles ,minibikes and scuba gear.
