    In past moves, I've put the built models in their original boxes, either wrapped in bubble wrap or lots of tissues..then 10-12 kit boxes per moving box, w/ some bubble wrap in the empty spots...     I actually mailed about 100 built kits to myself from Ohio to Colorado back in 1999 via USPS with no loss or damage.    Now I plan to ship them back from Colorado to Ohio soon along w/ unbuilts from Colorado and Arizona.

    Neat kit...is this the same tooling that has been released by Revell of Germany in various forms over the years?    I'd like to see a modern AMG version tooled up..

    Understandable, the stock 'bowing ball' wheels are pretty ugly...the spoked custom wheels are nicer.

    The Revell kit definitely had an engine, I remember building it over 35 years ago.  NIce kit, built it along w/ the Ferrari 308 GTB.  I think it's in my childhood bedroom closet in Ohio.

    I have one of the new kits...glad I got it when I did, I hear that distributors are out of stock on it and it may be a long wait until they have more...

    Ah, yeah..I remember that now... it looks like this one has some different parts and different box art.

    The two Lindberg boats look interesting...what scale are they?

    Not sure what you mean there..the 49 Ford kit goes back over 50 years..

    I guess they are avoiding the studio licensing with the Munsters kits (weren't they released a few years ago in a set and individually?).  Another one I noticed that was new to me is a reboxing of the Lindberg Dodge 330 Color Me Gone in AMT retro style packaging.

    My older brother got me into it in the late 70s...he was living in our basement after college (he's 21 years older than I am) and had his 60s AMT annuals on a shelf...I liked them, he and my mother got me some Lindberg and Revell 1/32nd scale snap kits, then I got some glue kits for my birthday and Christmas in 1978 (Revell 56 Chevy and several AMT Countdown Series kits) ..I was hooked.  When my brother moved out in 1979, he gave me all his '60s annuals (about 2 dozen kits).... which got me hooked on old kits.
    I had been a bit of a car nut from early childhood, though, with Matchbox, Corgi, Tomica, Hot Wheels etc diecast and a variety of interesting 1:1 cars in my family (my folks were Ford/Mercury/Lincoln people w/ Continentals, Mustangs, Cougars and Thunderbirds around, and my older brother had a steady stream of '60s-70s muscle cars..
