What kits are you hunting for 2015


Recommended Posts

I've got more kits than I could build in the foreseeable future. I've been looking at Monogram's 69 Camaro kits to rebuild my High Roller, ane then use the damaged body to make a PA/Wasteland car. Also been looking at their 3-n-1 Camaro and Firebird kits, I have some bad ideas for those, as well.

Other than that, any VW, Datsun-Nissan, Toyota or mini trucks I come across.

well as soon as Steve Scott comes through with his plans to reissue the Uncertain T (ahem), I won't really have any kits I am specifically after, so I will pretty much restrict myself to surprise gotta-have kits that will hopefully be issued this year (starting with the ebbro Citroen DS19 and the announced Mobieus stuff). Other than that I am going to try to whittle down the kit stash I already got going.

I don't need any but it seems a new kit here and there sparks new interest and build ideas. I never make many plans on what I may buy because I end up changing my mind. I am seldom buying anything and have cut way back being on a fixed income...

I'm still looking for a good deal on the Meng F-350 but would buy any new Mopar offerings. Like many have said, I have more than I can probably build but I am finding myself liking newer tooling fit and finish over some of the finicky kits of the past that are on my to build list. I would buy a case of the kit that included time, inspiration and skill. I think it would be a best seller. :)

Two compacts: AMT 62 Ford Fairlane and the Johan 61 Olds F-85 Station Wagon - if I see them at an affordable price.

Of course there are a few new kits coming that I'll have to have - Del Rio, 61 Pontiac, DS19 etc - but I don't expect to have to hunt for those.

Definitely the '57 Ford wagon; hopefully a '65 Continental to convert to a sedan; maybe a '58 Ford hardtop body; and dare I hope for a '59 Dodge reissue from Moebius? On the other hand I want to get rid of my Trumpeter Pontiac and Nova hardtops on eBay to get back the cost of the compressor I just ordered... <_<

#1 for this year is my first build of Revell of Germany kit. #2 will be the iconic Revell 49 Mercury.

#3 will be a build of a Polar Lights I have resin 69 Corvette that I want to use.

Of course all picks are subject to change

I've decided to do a series based on my birth year 1956. I just bought the Victoria, I'll get the Chevy next but most places have the Nomad and I want a coupe. At some point I'll get the Chrysler. I'm doing the Vic nearly stock with some period upgrades to look like it was used for weekend thrashing. I want to make the Chevy a resto mod with a modern drivetrain, and I think I'll go custom with the Chrysler. I've seen a couple of 1:1's that I love. I'll probably wait until Summer to build them but I'll be assembling the parts until then.
