AMT 53 Ford Skyline (coca cola)
Posted by Wild Bill from Hortonville on Monday, December 16, 2019 11:11 AM

I saw this kit at my LHS a few days ago.  I read this is a new tool, which is very rare for Round 2, but also I don't recall this being issued before.  Can anyone tell me if it really is a neat new American car kit?

I build cars, airplanes and military vehicles, generally all at the same time.  I'm always looking to try new kits, paints, tools and finishing supplies to improve my results and keep the hobby fresh.

According to Scalemates, the kit goes back to 1965. However, their timeline shows a 1956 Ford. So maybe it is a reworked mold.

The kit you saw is actually an updated version of the Lindberg 1953 Ford Victoria.  Round2 bought Lindberg and has been taking some of their models and releasing them as an AMT product.
