Just wondering if anyone has a group of these built? I see boxes a lot, but hardly see them in the flesh, er-plastic.

I have an unbuilt fire engine, a school bus I backdated to vintage with a 1936 Ford truck front end, and there's a Gremlin rolling around here somewhere. I had more as a kid.

I have just two of the 32 Pickup - the only one of interest to me.  Build up, not mint but I am happy with them.

Don't have any now but I remember them from my childhood. Bought them at Woolworths.

Benz SSK, Jeepster, 911, Torino and 71 Riviera here since new. Great little kits, wish someone would find them. EZ starter kits.

Still searching for the Buick Riviera boat tail they made. Really hard to come by apparently. I have the little Ford Pickup hot rod and the Chevy box truck that had come with a garage and even a body and chassis of the Chevy van, How that got in there, I'll never know.

Since my family had an HO scale model railroad layout, we've always had a few around.  The range was box scaled, with proportions often modified to suit.  The Greyhound bus has some odd proportions for sure.  Interestingly, many of the ML models were copied and scaled down by Bachmann as N scale layout accessories.  The copied box-scaling was even evident in "N".  Their mail vans look especially huge next to, say, their fire truck.
