All Tom Daniels kits, I know...  Embarrassed

Some of the old Pinto and Maverick Pro Stocks would be great! Considering what they are bringing on eBay I really find it hard to believe that someone hasn’t taken advantage of it and re-issued or produced them! I would be very pleased!

Well everyone asking for Johan kits -IMO they were not that good-Bodies -YES- interiors -shallow and chassis poorly detailed-towards the early  70's their drag kits were great-Sadly all the molds are GONE--they could find a original unbuilt kit and scan it and make a new tool-from there-- but just redesign it from scratch-would be better -we got to get more people interested in the hobby to buy kits for it to survive---time will tell--

I think if Revell would create new tooling for some of the JoHan Cadillac kits ('64 Coupe DeVille and convertible along with the early '70's Eldorados) they would most likely sell very well. I say Revell because Round 2 only seems to release existing kits.

I would love to see the AMT SS454 truck.

From Revellogram, the squarebody S10 and maybe the 30 model A coupe that is going for obscene amounts online.  (I know the molds were lost/destroyed or held hostage depending on who you hear it from).  The 1/8 scale Revell choppers from the 70's (LA Street chopper and the custom Panhead)

And if someone could figure out a way to release the Aurora drag racing diarama kits it would be amazing. These were put in the 70s and were sold as engines, chassis and bodies all seperately so you could build it in whatever configeration you wanted.  My dad has the Donovan engine and it is really detailed.

Rumor has it, the '30 model a will be back sometime in 2021. I know their roadster is scheduled to be released with engine parts from the '30 later this month, or sometime next month.

 

AMT's SS454 truck - Yes!

Revellogram's square body S10 - Yes!

Right now, I'm collecting the parts needed to turn a square body s10 into a crew cab. I would also love to do this with a scale model to match the real truck.

Ben, your suggestion about a 1/12 scale STP Turbine Car. I guess that you may be thinking about the old Bandai? one from the 70's. Why don't you contact Model Factory Hiro with this suggestion, as they appear to be catering for large scale racing cars more than anyone else.

Personally, I am more for retooling rather than reissuing. But I do understand that any retooling would have to be viable. For example, Revell have at long last retooled that tired old Jaguar E type kit from the 60's that they have re re  re issued over the years. Such an iconic car is probably worth the investment to get a return. But some of the more esoteric stuff we have seen down the years may be worth reissuing instead of retooling.
