    let's start a thread (with pics) of all the available a body model car kits. Amt, Ertl, Polar Lights, Monogram, Johan, Dealer promos and even Die Cast. I'm personally looking for a four door body so I can build a '73. Any other modelers out there?

    Good idea as long as the thread doesn't turn into a sale thread.

    I'm not wanting it to be "sale", more "this is what was made, this is a variant"

    Ya me neither but I know how threads can go sideways. All it would take is the interested party to send a private message. Let's see where it goes. I'm an old modeler myself. Haven't built one for decades.

    What year are you looking for?

    I have an early 4 door Valiant.

    I believe it' Revell.

    Have never seen another one.

    I have that 62 Dart (which is technically a B body) but it's a 4 door hard top (not sedan).

    I have this 74 Duster, which had been missing the real hood for decades.
    Finally got a resin repop from ModelHaus before they closed up.
    I made the "A body" scoop from the scoop that comes with the MPC 66 Charger. IMG_20190223_083530.jpg

    Second from the back, next to the Imperial (of death) is IIRC a 62 Lancer.
    It's missing parts as well. I believe it's Revell, and has provisions for a string line and DC can motor! The hood from the Valiant fits on it perfectly. I should have bought the missing parts from ModelHaus. They had them but I had already spent $50.

    I don't yet see the 69 Barracuda (third from bottom, right).

    They had a 68, but IIRC the tooling was updated to the 69, so the 68 can never be molded again.
    I believe early runs of the 69 still had 68 side markers.

    You could probably make a Demon out of the LA Dart hood and grill and a Duster body.

    I wonder if you can get a resin trunk lid to use on that LA dart?

    That Daytona T top was fun.

    I had the real car.

    Used styrene strip cut and filed to make the trim, then filled the void with putty.
    That was in 1991. Just last year I bought the T top glass off ebay to help finish the job.

    Just got this '65 Valiant from Bandit Resins. A little spendy but I have wanted to build my first car for years. Thought I had found an exact replica of the '68 340 my Dad and I put in it but came to find out RGE had closed up shop. Maybe one will pop up or else I'll make do.
