The last seven kits I've bought have smelled musty like somebody's basement. I'm talking brand new kits! Kits that have only been out in a range between five years and one month. ALL of them, have had an odd, musty, been in someone's basement for decades, smell to them.

As a matter of fact, I just got a Daytona Transport Truck (sealed) and an MPC Petty Charger (1/25th '73) and the sealed kit was mustier, than the vintage!!

Have any of you noticed? I'm no conspiracy theorist, but are the kit companies doing this to foster nostalgia? WHAT, is going on??

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. :)
