model car kits, you can't beat the large selection of automobiles
and trucks. Older companies like Revell and AMT, including MPC
models, are still cranking out nostalgic models, and have tooled
up all new releases within recent years. The model building hobby
is at one of the best times ever for the selection and diversity
of autos and car kits. New companies like MENG, Trumpeter, IMC,
Moebius, and others, are all dipping their toes in the water,
and have found success at producing model car kits.
While in the
past they excelled at Science Fiction model kits, or Military
Model kits, they've moved into issuing car subjects, and so far,
they've done well. At Rocketfin Hobbies, we carry model kits of
just about anything in one form or another. Military Jeeps or
trucks kits, also1/25 scale semi truck kits (which are very popular).
Aircraft model kits of all kinds, from civilian planes, to military
fighter jets. Ship models of the sea, especially naval models
in the popular 1/350 scale.
Scifi model kits are as good as ever. If a new movie comes out,
chances are, there will be a few new model kits out soon (if there
are any spaceships in it!). From the old AMT Star Trek Enterprise,
to the all new Bandai Star Wars kits, there are plenty of new
models to choose from. Moebius comes out with new kits all year
long it seems. And of course, Polar lights, and now MPC, are going
strong. Soon we will have an all new Space 1999 Eagle model kit,
at around 22 inches long.
Keep watching for new model kits, from the Super Hero lines (Dragon
Marvel models, and Moebius' Batman series) as more figures hit
the streets. Horror model kits? Monster model kits? Still popular
as ever. Plastic, resin, even vinyl models are becoming mainstream,
and modelers are becoming comfortable in building kits in those
mediums. It's the best time to hook up with a new model project.
