Nigel, Yes, AMT issued a 1/25 Subaru Brat in the early/mid-1980's. I have seen rumors on another model car forum that the molds for this kit were found to be in good condition, and that it is on Round-2's list of possible reissues, maybe as soon as early next year 2019!

On the bench:  '63 Studebaker Avanti.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

On the bench... somewhere. Pink Panther show car, 1978 Dodge Magnum Charger Daytona Midnight edition SE 300. Mongrel T.

For some reason, I can remember this being an MPC kit. Whichever, I really could use one if Round 2 reissues it!

Hell, the way Round2 does things, it could be a Lindberg next time it's issued! ;)

No, it was first issued by AMT Corporation.

Oh, yes, yes they did!

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but I've had some login issues. If you're looking for what the old (and soon to be reissued) BRAT looks like under the skin, then you can check out my review of it here:

It's a cool car/truck/whatever indeed, and I'm happy it's coming back, too!

The BRAT is scheduled for release this year.
