Old kits, ahould i buy them?
Posted by crossracer on Tuesday, January 7, 2003 10:20 AM
I have a chance to buy some old kits. They are a matchbox 1/32 me 109E, a revel 1/32 junkers Ju87 in hungarian markings, and a revel 1/32 me 109 These are in their original boxes with on in the original shrink wrap. I'm an armor fan but my heart is stil with planes. Money being the issue right now(just bought a house) are they worth 15 dollars apiece? I do plan to build them and enjoy them for what they are. I just don't want to waste my money. Thanks BIll

I can only speak for the Matchbox kit as I haven't built the other two.

If you can get Matchbox's 1/32 ME -109 for 15 bucks, DO buy it! Matchbox kits are a pain to find these days and some of the kits they made I really miss. Their 109 is a beauty and still holds up favorably by todays kit standards.

Believe me, you'll kick yourself if you don't pick it up.

Happy modeling!

I built the Ju-87 years ago. I'd recommend this for $15.
It's the only Stuka in 1/32 scale.

$15.00 a each is a great deal. You could find them on ebay but not that cheap.

I have built all these kits and still have others in my collection,and for 15 bucks go get them. The 109 is great kit. And if you don't like the decals there are alot of after market stuff out there. Pappy
