TV "Star"cars that never were kited

That kit would mean dealing with Disney.........the toughest and most costly licensing out there.  Notice you do not see and Disney licensing on hobby products.  Lionel did in the 1970's before Disney thought they were GOLD.

Well... both Zvezda and Revell have managed the cars of "Cars", so it may be hard, but it's not impossible...

best,

The CARS deal and the Star Wars licensing come under a granfather clause from what I understand. (both companies hold these) The CARS IP is  really owned by Pixar (I know Disney now owns them same as SW) The other Disney owned IP's were used by R2 at one time but bet they get no new licensing of IP's that are now Disney.  A model train company looked at a train from the live action 'Dumbo' but the cost was more than they could cover.  Just what I understand anyway.

Vista Cruiser I know has been mentioned, but should have been made by now.

The Simpsons Junkerolla, Rockford's Firebird(s), Green Hornets Black Beauty, a legit Magnum Ferrari.. I'd be in for all of them.

The TV show I am surprised that no one has mentioned yet is NCIS, nearly every major character has had a ride which could be modelled.

Very memorable, but very unlikely:

I'm surprised this hasn't been done as a 1/64 diecast along with the truck.

Anyone remember "Burn Notice"?

,,  No, not Fiona's Hyundai ,,,

I was thinking something more along the way of Michael's Charger.

Round 2 could easily do it by reissueing the old MPC "Super Charger" with an extra hood and a set of Magnum 500 wheels. Bonus points if they correct the wheel openings.

They did make The Mystery Machine and The Homer but what about Homer Simpsons everyday car?

It is apparently supposed to be a Plymouth of some kind.

I just saw that Molt Taylor Aerocar kit on "Shopgoodwill" about two weeks ago. I did not watch to see how much it went for.

I was going to bring up the Aerocar in The Bob Cummings Show, but it turns out it was offered as a kit Aerocar+Gladen+b.JPG

There is a real one at the museum at the Anoka County Airport in Blaine.

Revell kitted a very nice '57 Bel Air Convertible based off of their '57 Black Widow and Bel Air two door post body tooling.

And yes, I would be totally okay with someone releasing a decent Aerocar kit.
