NEW GROUP: Automobile Modelers of Motortopia

By CorvairJim

Related photos

After discussing the idea with a few friends, I've finally decided the time has come for Motortopia to have a group for those of us who enjoy building car models. There is already a group dedicated to collectors of Diecast models, but the new group is for those of us who like to put our own personal touch on our scale cars. The group isn't just for plastic kit builders - folks who modify diecast models, build R/C and slot cars, and anything beyond simply opening a box and putting the car on the shelf are welcome. Diecast models have a place in the model hobby (I have several myself), but builders take a model and make it uniquely their own. If you're interested, drop by the group's page and check it out. There isn't much there yet - I don't have any pictures posted, and I seem to have misplaced my camera!

Hi all,
I just ran across your site and have been involved with Corvairs for years.
I have a small collection of un-opened model car kits that I would like to sell.

Most of these kits are 1992 and older but not from the '70's or earlier.

I have about 75 Corvette kits as I was attempting to gather a representation for each model year. There are some years that I have several variations of.

I have another 75 or so misc. kits that were cars that I had either owned, were interested in, or thought were interesting to me.

Anyone interested can contact me at

I also have several Promo's, some Corvettes, Vipers.

These items have been adult owned and stored in a cool dry place since I got them.

I've been building models since I was around 6. Mostly rework diecast to my liking now but have a ton of either partilly started or unbuilt models mostly NASCAR .

Sounds great...I've been wanting to build a model from scratch for years. This sounds like the perfect reason to do that.
