I was surprised to find Glencoe's website to be fairly up-to-date. I wasn't sure they were still a going concern. They offer a wild variety of reissued old kits. Their small-scale automotive kits originated with ITC Model Craft (Ideal Toy Corp) in the '50s. http://www.glencoemodels.com/Online Catalog/MiniKits/MiniKits.html Images from the website: (More built-up samples can be found at http://www.glencoemodels.com/Gallery/TheGallery.html Background info and pictures regarding the original ITC/ Ideal kits and toys. https://www.oldmodelkits.com/blog/plastic-model-kit-history/itc-ideal-toy-company-model-kit-history-and-cam-a-matic-action-used-in-the-halibut-uss-enterprise-thor-mercer-duesenburg-and-battling-betsy/ I have built two of their locomotive kits (turning them into nifty Christmas tree ornaments in the process) and I picked up their little Jaguar XK-120. They aren't too bad for their size and age of tooling. Now I want the Le Sabre and Indy Racer. :-)
