I've probably bought about 500 old models (58-80 vintage, 1:24/1:25th scale) from ebay in the last decade...I have about 1500 newer and older ones in my collection, mostly unbuilt..got to get around to building them eventually...but at the rate I build, it will take a while..

I have a buddy that is a serious car nut who has(d) a large group of AMT, Johan, and other rare kits dating back to the early 60's...literally hundreds of new, never opened kits in MINT condition...that were lost to the floods back in June. He cannot even bring himself to go look at the storage building where they were stored.

Somewhere I have the "Black Knight" version of that kit (sans camper top).

It is still unbuilt, and purchased in about '78 or '79 I would guess. For some stupid reason, they decided to "equip" it with a V6. :rolleyes:

Probably why I never built the kit...
