Pretty cool, I remember these kits although, I never had the Mustang kit I had several others, I was not a fan of how the fenders/ side were separated from the center section of the car. It was hard to get them on straight and keep them there till the glue dried. Somehow they never quite looked right even when fully assembled. The proportions just weren't right. JTS 71 Mach1

Interesting ...

What other model kit manufactures are out there?

Does anyone make a current kit?

I know MPC made a 71-73 Kit and I believe AMT, also made a kit, Jo Han made one, Revelle I believe there's was a funnycar of the 71-73, Then there is a Japanese kit, if you want to see what is available just look on Ebay, but be prepared as some of them are absolutely nuts on the prices!

There are several '71-'73 model kits out there. I've picked up a bunch of them, since I also love building models. Some of the scale kits I've found so far:

Testors Die-Cast:

AMT:

And of course MPC has a bunch of re-released Funny Car kits:

And a Trans Am car:

This, however, is the kit to stay away from - it sucks. Lindberg:

One of the plastic (static) model makers does a '70 Mach 1. Monogram or Revelle I think. I was 'gonna' make it as a present but... you know the rest.
