What would YOU like to see as a model

Recommended Posts

Well, here goes :

1934 Chrysler or DeSoto Airflow

1938 Phantom Corsair

1942 DeSoto Fifth Avenue Cvt.

1948 Tucker Torpedo

1949 Buick Roadmaster Cvt.

1953 GM halo cars - Buick Skylark, Cadillac Eldorado, and Oldsmobile 98 Fiesta

1954 Buick Skylark

1956 Plymouth Fury

1955-56 Packard 400, Caribbean, Clipper, or Executive

1956-57 Lincoln Continental Mark II

Basically any of the 1950s halo cars from any manufacturer would be killer to have..

Somebody in the thread said they'd like some concept cars, which I will second..

All them Golden Era dream cars? There's the 1940 Chrysler Newport and the 1941 Thunderbolt, then a whole list of beauties that ChryCo and Ghia built. Man alive, who doesn't want GM Motorama kit of a 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special? Even FoMoCo had a neat one, the 1956 Mercury XM Turnpike Cruiser, also built by Ghia..

There's a ton of Golden Age custom cars that'd be way cool to have kits of too..

OH, and trucks too! 

1948-54 Studebaker 2R/3R Series, or 1955-60 E-Series pickup kit would be a crowd favorite..

And Dodge pickups for heavens sake!

1948-53 Dodge B-Series, 1954-60 C-Series, or 1961-65 D-Series truck kit would fly off the shelves..

Moebius changed the game with the 1951-54 Hudson kit lineup, I have them all. How cool would it be if they either modified the tooling or added to it and released a 1948-50 Hudson Commodore kit?

Moebius really raised the bar with the 1955-56 Chrysler 300 kits, I have them all too. Wouldn't it be sweet if they did a 1960-61 Chrysler 300 in the same manner?

Or if Round2 modified their 1957 Chrysler 300 C tooling into a 1957-58 New Yorker or Saratoga, or better still, a 1957-58 DeSoto Fireflite or Adventurer?

Or maybe change and improve on their 1958 Plymouth Belvedere a bit and turn it into a proper Fury, better still, backdate it to a 1957 Fury or Belvedere?

I tell ya fellas, I'd buy for sure two of each of any/all of the above listed if they were available in kit form..

Infinitely more interesting than any '32 Ford, '55-6-7 Chevy, Mustang, Camaro, Charger, Challenger, Nova, etc. etc.

At least there's the 1964 Cutlass though, and the prospect of the 1955 Powell, 1968 Coronet, 1965 and 1968 GTOs, and the Black Beauty Imperial to look forward too!

How about some Tatras?

That looks like an interesting and unique model there -- like a mix of Tucker, Renault,  and Nash. I'll have to look up what exactly the Tartas is.

**EDIT** Air-cooled V8 is pretty wild! Little surprise that it's a government officials' transportation.

This may have been mentioned more than once and I think they made a toy of this years ago, but this would be pretty cool as a model kit in like 1/25. Imagine the customizing possibilities. That old GMC motorhome from the 70s.

I would like to see a gmc typhoon 

Here ya go. 

This one spent some time in Japan though where some Japanese Cowboys had their way with it. Lowering kit, bigger turbo etc.

My cousin Phil was importing mini trucks from Japan at the time and brought this back. I could have had it for $6K cdn.

That's at  the tip-top of my list, Jesse! There is a 3D version out there. It looks pretty decent. May be only the body.

Yes, I think it might be a Robert Burns body, but I am not sure. I should send him a note and find out. But a complete kit would be awesome.

Another one I thought of today, a good kit of a third gen Camaro. Other than some aspects of the 1/25 Revell original, and the 1/24 ex-Arii kit, there are no good looking 3rd gen kits in the 1/25 scale area. All the others have bad proportions or just look toylike. It would be cool to see something on par with Revell’s 1990 Mustang LX kit!

Maybe to appeal to us older guys along with the younger ones, how about some new tool/new style trucks with a full Overland loadout? A Jeep Gladiator, Ford Maverick, or Toyota Tacoma, are all something I'd like to build. They could do a generic rack, lights, wheels and tires, and other accessories that would work with any of those trucks, and maybe even sell that as a separate kit.

1972 Buick Riviera | Classic & Collector Cars

Such a lead pipe cinch and so wretchedly overdue, a boat-tail Riv.

Guess it's the "Version 2" that's the hangup.  Though I'd imagine Revell would feel scrapers have had their day, I gotta wonder if a low rider of just this one would justify the tooling expense as the second version.
