Thanks for your great responses. One thing that is coming up in the forum and also emails are Transam subjects. I will be looking into this in more detail but 2 that have been suggested to start with are the Chapparal Camaro and AAR Barracuda. What do you think?
It could be a new sub range. Marsh Muscle has been suggested as well as Pam's Ponies!
Although pretty much most Can-Am cars are in the Marsh range, I have been flipping through Pete Lyons' excellent book and have come up with a few more suggestions.
Mark Donhue's M6B, winner at Bridgehampton '68
John Cannon's M1B, winner at Laguna Seca '68
Tony Dean's Porsche 908, winner at Road Atlanta '70
Francois Cevert's M8F, winner at Donnybrooke '72
Scooter Patrick' M20, winner at Elkhart Lake '74
With the exception of Tony Dean's Porsche, all the others could be revamped from existing kits (I assume). Inclusion of these models would complete the list of Can-Am winners. All the others (I think) are available.
I swore awhile ago that I won't start another collection series as I've already got 'CanAm', '60's F1', 'Indy' and 'Cars That I Just Plain Like' going on. Darn it John, if you start a Trans Am series looks like I'll have to break my promise!
Good choices to start with by the way! Don't forget the Javelin also.
Best regards, Sandy M.
I am new to this group but fairly active in building and collecting 1/43 models. My main interest is late 60's and early 70's American Muscle Cars including Trans Am cars so this topic caught my eyes.
Chaparral Camaro and AAR Cuda are nice but they have been done already. So, I would be very happy to see 1970 Firebird T/A by Jerry Titus or a street version. Also, 1971 AMX Javelin (both street and T/A (George Follmer)) These haven't been done by anyone (earlier years of these have been done) in either T/A form or street (diecast, resin, or white metal) in 1/43, at least I haven't seen one yet.
For Marsh Muscle, I can see many unique American Muscle cars such as GSX, Dodge Demon/Duster, 69/70 Cougar Eliminator, 70/71 Shelby, 70/71 Cyclone Spoilers,..... I understand that Mustang, Camaro, and Cuda are popular and may make more business sense but they are also most available.
