Is Academy Models Going to Produce a 1/24 Ford Shelby Daytona Coupe Model?


Yes, Ford Cobra Daytona. It's been a model Ford builders have wanted for years.

It's been done in 1:43 scale, in a plastic or slot car kit. Gunze Sanyo did a very good 1:24 kit, which included metal parts. Recently, Scale Motorsports has produced a great 1:24 curbside model in resin.

But of course, what modelers want, is a full detail kit. The cars are historic, the real ones worth millions of dollars. Now it looks like Academy Models just might all those modeler's wishes come true.

This popped up on an Academy Europe site. They mentioned a catalog there. On page 29, is a 1:24 scale Daytona Coupe.

Is it all new? A reissue of the Gunze Sangyo kit? Details are sketchy at this point. As of this writing, there is no mention of it on the main Academy Site.

Still, it's worth noting, and keeping an eye out for more news on this model car kit.
