and Movie plastic model kits have been popular ever since
the 1960's, when pop culture was really starting to take
off. Aurora Corporation was one of the leaders of the era,
releasing their 1966 Batmobile, as well as a Bat Boat, Bat
Plane, and even the Green Hornet's Black Beauty. Their 007
James Bond Aston Martin is one of the most coveted kits
Hollywood related kits began to pop up, from the Hero Cadiallc,
to Herbie the Love Bug. Model companies, AMT, Revell, and
others strived to tie their model kits in with the Hollywood
scene and issued plenty of plastic cars and trucks kits
for everyone of any age.
Soon, we were seeing movie kits of Farrah
Fawcett's Corvette, the Fall Guy Chevy pickup truck, BA's
A-Team GMC Van, Miami Vice Ferrari, and far to many other
kits to list them all.
Model builders never seem to loose their
interest in the TV and Movie related model car kits. So
chances are, we will continue to see them, from Polar Lights,
AMT, Revell, Airfix, and many more other model brands.
