1970 AMC AMX Model Kit REISSUE Coming!!

For model car builders, especially those who are AMC fans, this is a BID deal!  No... really... 1/20.  OK OK, so that is only slightly larger than the usual 1/24-25 scale we are used to, but the fact we are going to have ANY AMX kit reissued is great news.  And, to make things even better, this is the 1970 version, which is too much to handle!

(Yes, I am happy about this)

I have to confess, I have never seen the original version of the kit, so I don't know how accurate it was "in the day".  My guess is that the wheels are too wide.  We shall see...  Here's info from the Round2 website:
