Model kits; the more hands on (and less often talked about) approach to scale car collecting. I don't know about everyone else, but I enjoy seeing a well detailed model kit put together. I've seen people put a lot of time and effort into these type of kits (such as this Barracuda and Camaro) and achieve great results. (For the record, neither of these cars are mine)

I used to be into these kits, but honestly, I was never that good. Now, I don't have the time, and my collecting interests have changed (1:64 scale takes up a lot less space). As a result, I have a bit of a stockpile, which I'll probably not get around to building. It's a shame, really.

Is anyone else interested in model kits? Do you have a favorite kit or kit manufacturer?
