Posted by Tim Boyd on Friday, May 17, 2019 8:38 PM's the inside scoop, including photos, of several AMT kits that were under development in the late 1960's to late 1970's, but never actually brought to market.  Some where announced and later cancelled, others never known to be under development beyond those directly working for or with AMT.  

It's a fascinating story and one that all model builders and collectors should check out.  It's posted elsewhere here at the ScaleAutoMag website, but to save you the time of looking, here's a direct link to the story:

Neat article. Lots of history there. I remembered my brother had a model resembling the miss budweiser race boat now that i saw it in the article. I was always jealous of it . Must have been the testors release as mentioned in the article. Gosh that must have been in 1979ish.

Superb insight! Shame about both the 911 and the racing boats.

A trash truck would have been too cool. Too late for it now.
