Kit Re-issues
Posted by Luke80 on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 4:34 PM

Does anyone know how the Kit re-issue process works for Round2?  I saw on ebay a 1/25 scale 1970 AMC AMX 4 in 1 by AMT.  How about that an AMT AMC AMX! thats funny.  I would love to see that re-issued.

Round 2 has basically taken over everthing from AMT, Lindberg, MPC, Polar Lights & Hawk.

They've already re-issued many kits under banners that they were never originally produced under.

I would like to see a reissue of the MPC 32'/33' Chevy roadster.  I wouldn't mind the van/paddy wagon version either but they would have to retool the body.  The origenal was modified for The Dark Shadows vampire van.

The MPC Ford Woody/street rod, last released as an AMT kit, would make a great reissue.

The Corvair powered Meyer's Toad would go along with the other dune buggies AMT has recently reissued.

There's the MPC 68' Jeepster convertable if the tooling still exists..

AMT made a 68' AMC Jevlin and a 69' AMX kit but I'm not sure if those were rebranded Johan kits.

I'm sure I can think of something else.

If you're able to attend a local, or not so local model car show/swap meet you may be able to locate a few or some of the kits you've listed. However be warned that they may be pricey. Bottom line is either you want them, or you don't.

If you go on EBAY or the out of production section of the Model Round Up wehsite you can find just about anything.  Of course it will cost a hundred plus dollars.  That's a bit steep for my tastes.

I'm sure that with a little thought and effort you could make a '55 Chevy Stepside Pro Street vehicle.
