About Model Car Kits

Those who are fans of cars or trucks always have that one car they loved growing up, whether it was their dad's car or one they saw on their favorite television show. However, those cars are often unobtainable in real life with one exception: model car kits. With these kits, it is possible to build your dream car at a 1/16th or 1/24th scale. Model car kits generally have three levels of skill required to put them together. The basic level, ideal for ages 8 and up, requires no glue at all. All parts snap together easily. The intermediate level, ideal for ages 10 and up, require some gluing and simple painting. This represents the majority of the model car kits available. The advanced level, best for ages 12 and older, features a high level of detail and multiple paint schemes. Race car model kits, which feature NASCAR, Indy-car, and Formula One race cars, are popular for kids and their parents to put together. Other kits are specific to one make and model, such as Chevrolet Chevelle model car kits, a popular muscle car in the 1960s and 1970s. A vast inventory available on eBay makes finding the ideal car kit a snap.
