Can't say I've ever seen this Palmer kit before.

Can't say I've ever seen this one before, either. Interesting. Is the Porsche about to hit that pole? Giving Palmer an excuse as to why their kit looks the way all Palmer kits? Bad.

Just an indicator of the "ugly stick" Palmer used to beat all their kits.  The stick was then passed along to Starfix.

 Here's a few of my favourites that I pulled off the shelf. I know the Lindberg kits are what they are but the box art on these original issues is so nice. I'm one of those goofy individuals that likes box art and sometimes will buy a kit that I already have duplicate issues of just for the art, must be the artist in me.

The Japanese company IMAI did some exciting box art for their 1/32 car kits.  The kits were simple curbsides, often motorized, and not so exciting once you opened the box.
