    Hello George

    Oh yes, this would be a sick awesome project, though I leaned the hard way that doing it all on one's own is impossible. I would like to organize the modelling community in helping me source hires scans of the 3500+ domestic model car boxes I've catalogued. In looking through everyone's kits in the "show your stash" thread here, I see there are hundreds of classics just waiting to be digitized.

    In the meantime, you can see the images I've grabbed off Google here:

    Nice idea, Tony. I plan to comp together all the 3000+ box top images I've collected and create a whopping 24x36 poster.

    Hello John

    Oh yes, please do get some shots of the front end. I don't think I've ever seen the front of it; and now I need to see more of your work!

    Hello Daniel

    I love your idea; it would be great to get a bunch of us together to try to document, catalogue and digitally preserve model kits. Instructions, box tops, end panels, decal sheets, and even pics of all the parts and sprues, if possible. That is the dream, ha ha.

    I hope I've gotten caught up with everyone's request for the PDF. If I've forgotten you or the link doesn't work, just hit me up and I'll get you taken care of.

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate all your support!

    Wow, John, your Atlantic is sick amazing! Dude, you're like a living legend! I'd love to see more of it!

    I loved working with Lindberg's Atlantic too, though I found the plastic for it (and their Crown Vic) just a wee bit more rubbery and elastic to work with than typical styrene. Did you find the same?

    Here's what I did with my Atlantic: used the nose and scratchbuilt everything else to make a funky woody!

    Hello everyone

    Wow, this is awesome to see so many people interested in this! I was about to trash my scrapbook, but then I was like: "Nah, I really need to share this with the modelling community!" It's a shame I never thought to properly credit everyone's fine work back then, and I've forgotten the names of a lot of the amazing builders. There's tons of great stuff from Jairus, Juha, and many, many more.

    I've sent download links to everyone who's responded so far; please do let me know if the links aren't working. I'll find a way to get your PDFs to you. Thanks!

    The ultimate model car inspiration and reference scrapbook
    Before the internet, gathering solid reference material on cars was tough. So, all through the 90s, I kept a scrapbook of everything cool and interesting I ever found in model car magazines.

    Just discovered it hidden in a box, so I scanned it, and I have a hires PDF (83 MB, via Dropbox link) for anyone who would like to have a copy. Just send a message or comment in this thread.

    There's tons of awesome ideas, cool models, great reference and good times. Enjoy.

    Hello Greg, how does a thread get pinned?

    In the meantime, I just uploaded these 33 kits to the galleries:

    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.

    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'!
