I usually build armor so I would 't have an idea as to where to start looking for aftermarket accessories (if they exist) for the recently rerelease. AMT 1976 Gremlin kit in 1/24. Wish dad kept his in the garage till today because it seems more valuable than when he owned it. Thanks in advance for any ideas. Regards, MK
This kit hasn't been around in decades, and hasn't been a hotbed of interest or desire in the gap years. You might or might not be able to find an aftermarket resin engine (that might or might not be better than the kit engine), and perhaps resin repops of other AMC factory wheels/wheel covers of the era, but I think that would prolly be about it. My advice would be to just build it OOB and have fun with it, and don't get too hung up on afterbirthmarket for it.

Somebody does an AMC 6 cylinder engine which should work, and that is about it. Thirty-sx years later,I bet I can still remove and replace the alternator on one of those junk boxes blindfolded. They were only good for about 12,000 miles.
