Car model box covers

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a site where I/we can find images of box covers from old car models that have been unfolded, with the side panels and end flaps intact?  I found several for aircraft and some for newer car models, but none for the older stuff.  By older, I mean the '60s and '70s...

Are you planning to photo-reduce the images, then print them for "scale" model kit boxes? I'm guessing you have a particular kit or kits in mind, and don't want to use any of the reissued Round2 kits which include mini boxes just like what you are looking for?

You got it, Casey.  I have some of those Round 2 kits, and I will be reducing those mini boxes and printing them in scale size to put in the finished model.  And, I have found some more current stuff (like some of the Hudson kit boxes) online, with end flaps and side panels, but I'm looking for older, vintage stuff from the '60s and '70s.  If I can find them, I'll save the image and print them in scale sizes, too.  I'm attempting to re-live my youth in scale by incorporating them into future builds; even old aircraft, ships and armor.

Not sure if anyone is re-selling just the mini model boxes from these, but it might be an option for you:
