It would be better if Tamiya did an American big rig!

I would love to see that.  Working on the Mercedes GT3 currently and it's just such a well fitting, well engineered kit.  Would really like to see them expand.

Thanks,

John

I'm working on an Rc166 250 cc six cylinder bike at 1/12. Power curve peak at 20K rpm!

Beautiful little model.

Cobra would be nice, in say 1/12.

Tamiya did do the late '90s Ford Mustang GT Convertible many years ago.

And theres an escort or two as well in the ralley stuff.  What about mopar af/x, big block chevelle, 70 boss 302... that would be cool.

Though I must say recent revell and moebius kits are pretty darned good.  The bronco and comet i just did were great to assemble. 

Thanks,

John

I did not realize that Tamiya did not make American muscle car models! Hard to believe that they do not, the models would sell like hotcakes I imagine.
