What wagon is Round 2 alluding to? Which Station Wagon would you like to see a model kit of?

Recommended Posts

Another choice would be a 1956 Buick 4 door hardtop. The 57 Olds would also be a 4 dr HT. These would be station wagons of course.

Turns out the correct answer is: 63 Nova wagon! That makes us all winners!

We have a winner!

Not my first choice of what I would want, but I still might need to get one.

Think I would Rather have a Mach-E detail kit instead......

After watching the video/live stream in question last night, I got the feeling the wagon would be an all-, or at least mostly, new tool, and not Round2 bringing back a '60s era kit.

Yeah, I was way off there, and there's no '67 Impala wagon coming. ?

But, there was a new Round2 video two weeks ago, in which Jamie Hood mentioned an automotive kit in the early stages of development. "If you like the Supernatural Impala, you'll definitely be in on this one, too".

Sounds like it could be sci-fi related (which might explain Jamie's involvement?), so view the video below and let the speculation begin.

Sci-fi and automotive.... ;)

But more likely is the following one...

In regards to the New Round 2 issue of the 1963 Nova Wagon coming in January 21, I just checked my 65 AMT Nova Craftsman built up, with a un/ glued hood. There is tons of detail there. Why did Round 2 leave out the Master Cylinder, Radiator, Heater Blower, Wire detail and Battery cover?  If they copied an original AMT 63 Nova Wagon, all that detail would be there, so there must be a reason they left it out? They even cut out a hole for a Radiator but no part is included.  Attached are photos of the New are Tooled 63 Nova Wagon, my 65 Hard Top and an Original Craftsman 63 Nova Wagon  with under hood details. Big difference. Any thoughts? I suspect that another version with an engine and under hood detail parts is coming later. Not sure why this kit was released this way. If you collect Promo’s  or like to build Craftsman kits, such as the 1964 Caliente then you don’t mind this kit version. If you want the correct Engine, Model Car World sells a Resin AMT  Six Cylinder from the 64 Nova Kit.

IMO , Round2 reached two target audiences with this :

1.) Casual / Beginner builders

2.) Seasoned builders who'll add the 'missing' items

The correct 1966 & earlier brake master cylinder can be found in the Revell 1966 El Camino and / or 1966 Chevelle Wagon (there's two of them in each kit ; one with vacuum booster , one sans booster) . I'd imagine that the 1966 L79 Nova (from 1988 , ad seq. ) would be the de facto source for the remaining 'absent' boiler room parts (radiator , etc.) .

At least the price-point reflects these 'missing' items .

Oh, I’m not worried. I’m ordering an engine from MCW and I have a Battery to cut down,  the 63 Corvette master cylinder with booster looks more AMT than the Revell parts. I have an extra Radiator from the 63 Tempest Kit I can use. And scrap Generators cut down work for heater blowers.  You are probably right that this kit is ment to be either a shelf model, Promo Clone or a base for a Drag car model.

I grew up with station wagons because dear old dad owned them because they were a perfect fit for a family of 4. Here are a few they should come out as a kit....

A long shot, to be sure, but I'd like to see this wagon as a kit.
