I'm not young enough to know everything


You know, I'm really starting to doubt that your quote is true...... maybe you are young enough

You don't remember the Lindberg 1/20 scale kits? They did quite a few before they stopped recently and started building battery powered hopper cars. These kits (SUVs) were released around 1996 and included Ford, Chevy and GMC pick-ups and SUVs. I remember the "Bay Watch" rescue pick-up truck molded in yellow too.

Lindberg did several JP models to include the movie T-Rex and Raptor, both of which can still be picked up in the "Skillcraft" boxings in the hobby shops. They also boxed several ancient dinosaur kits (stegasaurus and a cornithsaurs-something) in JP boxes. The movie dinos were nice kits that looked just like the movie creatures. Horizon did some top-notch dinos in vinyl too.

Revell-Monogram got the license for JP2 and they put out a Hummer based on their current Hummer chassis, it was a 2-door with a cage in the rear and had a pivoting clamp to capture a dino and swing-away seats. They also made the SUV and the T-rex and Raptor set. The T-Rex and Raptor bases could be connected to form a dio. All of these kits were snap-tite and were on the clearance shelves at Toy Liquidators and K-B Toy outlets last year for $4.99.

No kits for JP 3.

No... I've only been 'seriously' modelbuilding for about 2 years now. All I cared about before that was the Star Wars models and models of Corvettes and Porsches. I've 'expanded my horizons' now.
Brigadier General Sabot, congrats on 1000 posts!!! I salute you and your knowledge!
