Atlantis Models has bought another lot of tooling/molds.....


Recommended Posts

Didn't they buy the Revell 1/16th Dragster/Funny Car kits? This was a hot topic back in March, then it sort of disappeared. I hope this wasn't just a rumor. Would love to do a vintage rail

Can you say Keeling and Clayton?

Kinda looks like Raiders of the lost Ark!!

I didn't know they kitted the Ark! Probably that and old drag and showrod stuff the new guys don't want.

There was some Johan tooling that Moebius was supposed to have...

They looked at some...even made an announcement but in the end passed on the tooling. I got a test shot...but it never got further.

A good detective would probably be able to match those numbers on the tooling to old kit part numbers and figure out what they might have there ??‍♂️ 

Where’s McNally when we need him?

The engines didn't do that well, so the motorcycles that were to follow weren't released.  The engines are great, but being early Sixties items limits what can be done with them. 

A lot of the original parts packs like the bumpers and interior parts didn't do that well back in the day.  Those could be found new and unused at swap meets or even at old hobby shops well into the Eighties.

If the old Revell double kits could be pieced back together, now those might find buyers.  That might be problematic because some of the parts from those were later used in the Miss Deal Studebaker kit.  Atlantis may or may not have the tires, as other newer kits use them also.

I'm sure they could sell a buttload of Bantam and Fiat bodies, and the hot rod frame sets too.
