    Glad to see that R-M is doing NASCAR subjects again, regardless of the level of detail. Hopefully they will be "about" the level of detail that the previously released Impalas were.

    I'll definitely purchase several and use them for slot car bodies and perhaps a shelf model or 2 (that was a "Blue Deuce" reference, son.). I see Pattos has several 2015 decos for both drivers.

    This is on my "to build" list using the recently reissued Cyclone, Powerslide Decals and chassis from the 1969 Mercury Stock Car kit.

    Jon- love the flare job. Hope to see that finished soon.

    This kit includes a surprising number of "extra" parts; I'd wager that a version of the kit with street stock and drag options will be released eventually.

    The recent Round2 reissue of the Allison Cyclone is a NASCAR only kit.

    I have been hoping that kits in this series would be re-released in my lifetime. I'll buy all in the "stock car series" that they produce.

    Best Models of 2014
    What would you say were the best car models released during 2014?

    To make this topic somewhat less of a free for all, please limit your comments to Model Car (not truck) Kits that:

    Were released and available for sale during 2014 Are 1/25 or 1/24 scale Contain no resin, machined metal or photo etch parts Build only one model per kit - no double or triple kits Were priced at MSRP under USD $40 Kindly limit your "best" nominations to no more than 3 kits
    If you could please elaborate why you are nominating these models it would be appreciated. Photos illustrating your point are also appreciated.

    GO!

    The majority of the cost of producing a slot car is in the body, so few people would buy just the body for the price that companies would need to charge to make a profit.

    They aren't that expensive- why not buy the whole car and sell the parts you don't use on eBay?
