    Agree so very much, would love to see Revell do 1/25 kits as follows:

    1967 Camaro
    1968 Camaro
    1969 Special Edition with SS hood (why have they not done a special edition 1969 Camaro Kit, the 70 Mustang got one)
    1970 Camaro
    1970 Chevelle

    I guess you can tell I am a Chevy enthusiast.

    What about the 70 Chevelle?

    Thanks guys, great feed back. Wonder why AMT does not release new 60/70/s muscle car kits, it looks like all they release now is reissues or the modern 2008-2013 Camaro, Corvette, Challenger, etc. It's a shame.

    AMT - Top 10 Muscle Car Kits
    Kind of new to car building, have never owned an AMT kit as I have never really heard anything good about them. I love 60/70/s muscle cars and have about 25 kits now, mostly Revell the odd Monogram.

    Looking for feedback (like a poll I guess) of the top 10 AMT muscle car kits every produced (if there is as many as 10).

    From some reviews I read so far I can only list 4:

    - 1969 Olds Hurst
    - 1970 Camaro
    - 1971 Charger
    - 1969 GTX

    Model Show/Contest Guelph Ontario, Canada
    There was a model show every year usually in April in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Looking for feedback from model guys that live in Ontario, Canada as I can not find anything on goodle or any flyers on this show, does it not go on any more?

    1970 Chevelle SS
    Love this car but I have read many forums indicating how many people wish Revell would do a nice 1/25 scale, I have seen some nice Revel snap kits done but what about the Revell 1/25 Chevelle SS Donk 3 in 1 kit, would this not be a nice basis to build a sweet 70 Chevelle SS?

    Thanks, those are nice wheels sets. I assume all those pictures you provided are Aoshima wheel/tire sets. What is the best on-line distributor to order Pegasus and Aoshima tire/wheels from?

  11. Stang88 added a post in a topic done with the hobby i think   

    I agree with everyone else, we are just trying to give you sound advice from learning the hard way. I have modelled for 30 years, a few years ago I got bit by the golfing bug, sold all my kits and airbrushes, compressor, tools, etc to afford golf, I swore I would never go back then 2 years ago I experienced a medical condition and could not golf any more, went crazy at home and now getting back into it but had to spend so much money to replace everything I need which I use to have, should of packed it all away in storage. So I learned the hard way as well as others here, again just trying to save you money. I believe this is a hobby that is in a persons blood, you might leave it but it is never really gone, just take a break and pack things away, I think some day you will come back to it.

    So who makes after market wheels and tires the right size for Ferrari kits? I would assume Ferrari have specific wheels for their cars I checked Pegasus and can't locate any.
  13. Stang88 added a post in a topic Revell Ferrari Kits   

    I was just wondering if some parts were different. When I look at the box art the ROG Ferrari kits the tires look more low profile then the Revell USA ones.
  14. Stang88 added a post in a topic Revell Ferrari Kits   

    Is there any difference in the German Revell Ferrari kits vs Revell USA kits?
