ENGLISH GALLEON GOLDEN HIND

Sir Francis Drakes ship of exploration was a small English galleon called the Golden Hind. Drake circumnavigated the world in this ship between 1577 and 1580 ( wikipedia entry ).  This sailing ship is a popular subject of wooden ship modelers, and Ages of Sail carries several different kits.

OcCre's  wooden model ship kit is probably the most popular at the time. This plank-on-bulkhead kit is easy enough for new builders, but includes beautiful quality wood, and carries an affordable price.

Constructo makes a much bigger ship model kit, which features more cast metal fittings, which have a better, more realistic appearance, but it probably for more advanced ship modelers.

We also carry Golden Hind kits from Mamoli , Mini-Mamoli , and offer a Deluxe Combo Set that includes tools, glues, and more, based on the OcCre model kit.

ARMED TRANSPORT HMS BOUNTY

HMS Bounty was an armed merchant ship in service with the British Royal Navy, and it was on a mission to collect breadfruit plants in the South Pacific, but the ship is most well known for the infamous mutiny against Captain Bligh by a crew led by Fletcher Christian ( wikipedia entry ). This 3-masted square-riggers is another popular subject among ship model builders.

Amati's kit may be the most beautiful of the available wooden model kits of Bounty. It is one recommended for advanced ship modelers, though a careful intermediate modeler might build a successful model

Amati's First Step kit is a small, solid hull, wooden model ship kit designed for the first time ship modeler, young or old.

Artesania Latina's kit  as well as OcCre's kit actually have one side of the ship open, showing the framing and life aboard. This is a more expensive kit, and far more challenging, but it's fun and interesting to look at when it's done.

Other Bounty kits include ones from Constructo Jr. , Constructo , Mantua , Caldercraft , Billing Boats , and more!

HMS VICTORY - NELSON'S FLAGSHIP

What ship modeler doesn't dream of building a model of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar? ( wikipedia entry ) The Victory was a 100-gun first-rate ship of the line that is one of the most complicated ship model builds available. Kits of the Victory are available from many manufacturers, and some of them are simplified versions of the ship, so you to choose the complexity of your build. Any version will still be a serious challenge.

Caldercraft makes what is currently the largest and most detail wooden kit of HMS Victory on the market. This 1/72-scale plank-on-bulkhead wooden model ship kit is highly prized among model ship builders.

Mantua makes a few different HMS Victory kits including this smaller 1/200-scale kit that's small in size, but big on detail. This kit will provide to be a challenge that won't take up a lot of shelf space.

Corel's HMS Victory kit is a classic wooden model ship kit that has been one of the more popular kits of Nelson's famed ship of the line.

Many other kits are available including those from Billing Boats, Constructo, Mantua/Panart , Mantua , Mamoli , and even a paper model version from Shipyard .

HMS ENDEAVOUR

The ships of the great explorers of the golden age of sail are a popular subject among those looking for a wooden ship model kit, and one of these is the ship of Captain Cook's famous voyages into the Pacific. 

OcCre's HMS Endeavour kit is one of the largest and most complete at 1/54-scale. This plank-on-bulkhead wooden model ship kit includes a good set of instructions that should make this challenging subject a bit easier. 

Caldercraft's wooden model ship kit is among the smallest of the available Endeavour kits, but it's scale accuracy is excellent, making it a popular kit.

POLAR EXPLORERS

Many expeditions have search the frigid waters of both the Arctic and the Arctic. The search for new territories and new trade routes have caused many to risk life and limb in their quests, and here are a few available to wooden model ship kit builders.

Astrolabe was a French warship which discovered many new territories for France in the 1800s, and Mantua makes a beautiful kit of this famous ship.

HMS Terror was one of two ships of the ill-fated Franklin Expedition sent into Arctic waters in search of the allusive Northwest Passage. OcCre's kit is a faithful reproduction of this bomb vessel turned explorer.

Gjoa was the first ship to find and successfully navigate the Northwest Passage. Roal Amundsen's ship is well represented by this beatiful wood ship model kit from Constructo of Spain.

Endurance was the Antarctic exploration ship of Sir Ernest Shacklton. OcCre's kit of this famed expedition ship is well detailed and has become quite a popular kit following the recent discovery of the sunken ship which was found amazingly intact.

Tip: if you are looking for paint, try your local paint/hardware store. These boats are going to be dry-sailed (in and out of the water) not hanging on a mooring or tied-up to a dock... so no specialty paints will be needed.   If you are looking for a unique color, or wanting to match your own boat or a color scheme you've seen, they have a myriad of chip colors which you can take to the counter and have them custom mix on of those  small "samplers" jars that are very inexpensive. Plus, they will have a wide variety of paint colors in small spray cans, and small paint cans.

Tippecanoe Boats

Tippecanoe boats.

RC Sailboat Racing: A group of Model Sailboats at a Remote Control Boat Race

We produce the highest quality model sailboats, toy sailboats, and radio controlled model sailing boats in the world.

After 36 years of business, there are now over 70,000 Tippecanoe model sailboats sailing in more than 65 countries around the world!

Children impressed by 12 inch Wooden Toy Sailboat sailing beside an RC Sailboat

Our Mission:

Our mission is to continue the wonderful tradition of model sailboats, especially wooden model sailboats, that really sail. Our boats have provided thousands of hours of happy outdoors experiences for countless adults and youngsters. We hear back from owners almost every day about how much they enjoy their boats and how pleased they are that we are doing what we do. In their small way, model sailing boats make the world a better place for all of us.

Our Origin:

Will Lesh is the founder, designer, and owner of Tippecanoe Boats. Will grew up with a classic Jacrim Seaworthy model sailing yacht which he sailed for many summers on Lake Tippecanoe along with his sister who also had a beautiful Keystone pond yacht.

“It has been in memory of those many happy hours that I have brought these beautiful toy sailboats back to life, and of course we have added a terrific collection of sensational RC model sailboats as well which make splendid projects for craftsmen as well as for first time builders and sailors.” – Will Lesh, Founder and Designer

Wooden Toy Sailboat: T12 Cruiser with red and blue sails

“I have a 100 ton license. I built my own 24 foot sailboat and sailed it across the Atlantic. I own a 34 foot cruising sloop, a laser, two MC Scows, a Hobie 14, a windsurfer, a 420, my 24 foot trans-Atlantic sloop, a 12 foot laminated mahogany sailing dinghy, 5 kayaks and 2 canoes (also two 37 foot steel sailboats in process). I am passionate about sailing boats and human powered boats of all sizes. But I still love sailing the model boats, they are so fun and beautiful and bring the joy of sailing alive in a very special way. In fact, I think I sail and race our model boats more frequently than I use my full sized boats! You can count on every one of our Tippecanoe boats, free-sailing toy boats and sophisticated radio control boats, to sail exceptionally well. I guarantee it!” – Will Lesh, Founder and Designer

Will Lesh lives and breathes sailing. He always has, and he always will.

Will started, and continues to run, Tippecanoe Boats in order to spread his love for sailing to all:

“I sail, therefore I am!”

The 9 Best Model Car Kits, from Lego to Tamiya

Don’t start your engines. Build them.

lego chevrolet camaro z28

Gear-obsessed editors choose every product we review. We may earn commission if you buy from a link. Why Trust Us?

Another nice plus is that model kits are relatively inexpensive, starting at about $20. There are pricier options on the market, too, including plenty from Lego ,that come with 1,000-plus pieces and cost upwards of $100. Here’s a guide to get you building, crafting, and tinkering.

Looking for more hands-on fun with cars and trucks? Check out our stories on the best remote-controlled cars , the best remote-control boats , and the best car toys .

The Best Model Car Kits

  • Best Chevy Impala Car Model Kit: AMT 1967 Chevy Impala Model Car Kit
  • Best Lamborghini Car Model Kit: Maisto Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Model Car Kit
  • Best Ford GT Car Model Kit: Tamiya 2015 Ford GT Model Car Kit
  • Best Dodge Challenger Car Model Kit: Revell 1970s Dodge Challenger 2-in-1 Model Car Kit
  • Best Chevy Camaro Car Model Kit: Lego Chevrolet Camaro Z28

What to Consider

Glue and paint.

If you’re a model kit newbie or looking to gift a model car, you can buy a die-cast kit with painted metal parts ready to assemble, or a plastic molded car that needs glue and paint.

If you enjoy tinkering and following directions to assemble things, a die-cast kit is the way to go. If you’re artistically inclined and skilled at detailed work with paint and decals, challenge yourself with a plastic molded kit. (I, unwisely, use my fingers to cut out plastic parts from die-cast kits. Don’t do that. They’ll break. Grab a pair of tweezers to pop out pieces instead.)

For kits that don’t come with supplies, make sure you purchase model-specific paints as they dry thinner than the type you’d put on a wall or a canvas. Vallejo makes great beginner-friendly model kit paints and Revell has affordable model kit paint brushes . For glue, something with a fine tip applicator is best. Tamiya makes a solid one.

You can also buy Lego building kits for adults and teens alike, which omit the need for glue or paint. Expect to shell out at least $100 if it’s car-specific—all car builds come from the pricier, more mature-leaning Lego Icons series.

Difficulty Level

Most retailers provide each kit’s complexity in a level or an age range, and some also list an estimated completion time. Most model kits are suitable for teens and up, but some children may be able to assemble tougher kits with adult supervision. Detail-oriented kits that require painting generally take the longest.

You should also take a look at the scale to see how big the finished product is—it’s listed in a ratio format that expresses the model’s size in relation to the real car it replicates. For parents, it’s a good idea to look at how small the pieces are to see if the project will be satisfying or frustrating for your little one.

How We Selected

Our selection includes die-cast and model car kits from reputable brands known for turning out high-quality products, such as AMT, Revell, and Tamiya, plus a few from Lego. These model car kids span all experience levels, from beginner to expert, and multiple price points. I've been toying with Gundam and Pokemon model kits for the last year or so, cutting and pushing plastic out of molds to piece together for display, so I know what goes into a high-quality kit. We used a combination of in-house expertise, research, buying guides from model kit and hobbyist publications, and user reviews to find the best model car kits.

Revell 1970s Dodge Challenger 2-in-1 Model Car Kit

1970s Dodge Challenger 2-in-1 Model Car Kit

Fun fact: The 1970 Dodge Challenger was the company’s first pony car—stylish, compact, and affordable. This two-in-one model kit allows you to build the factory stock version or the street machine (with dual four-barrel high-rise intake).

It features chrome-plated parts, including rims and bumpers, black vinyl tires, and a realistic detailed interior. The kit is for intermediate to experienced model car builders and comes with decals, but glue and paint is sold separately.

Many users say the part fit is excellent and more experienced builders will have a blast, though it’s not best for younger children.

Dimensions9 x 7 x 4.3 in.

Revell 1965 Chevy Stepside Pickup Model Car Kit

1965 Chevy Stepside Pickup Model Car Kit

We had to include at least one badass truck in our roundup. This ’65 Chevy Stepside pickup kit gives you the option to build either a factory or custom model using the included stock and graphic decals.

There’s also a 283 V8 engine with optional parts, including disc brakes, and chrome wheels with moon hubcaps to pair with whitewall tires or five-spoke mag wheels with low-profile tires.

The model car kit has illustrated instructions and is ideal for intermediate-level builders and confident beginners.

Scale1:25
Dimensions 7.2 x 2.8 x 2.7 in.
MaterialPlastic
Ages10+

AMT 1967 Chevy Impala Model Car Kit

1967 Chevy Impala Model Car Kit

The 1967 Chevy Impala features Coke-bottle styling, with flared fenders and a narrow center. This model car kit captures every curve of the vintage muscle car and includes more than 100 parts, with chrome rims, rally wheels, a detailed interior and chassis, plus a 427-cubic-inch V8 engine. It also comes with a full-color decal sheet.

While most reviewers love this model kit, some say pieces are so thin that they are easily breakable. Still, with a gentle hand, this should be a simple build for older teens and adults.

Scale1:25
Dimensions8 x 5 x 6 in.
MaterialPlastic
Ages14+

Maisto Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Model Car Kit

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Model Car Kit

This model car kit is an excellent choice for first-time builders, as there are only 24 pieces, and there’s no glue or paint required to finish the job.

All of the Lamborghini’s die-cast metal parts come painted and easily snap together or attach using an included tool. The end result is impressive and realistic—the doors open, and there’s a working steering wheel.

A few reviewers describe the instructions as hard to understand, but the majority say the kit is easy enough for kids, with one claiming their 8-year-old assembled it with no problem.

Scale1:24
Dimensions7 x 3 x 2 in.
MaterialMetal, plastic

Tamiya 2015 Ford GT Model Car Kit

2015 Ford GT Model Car Kit

In 1966, the first model of this car—the GT40 Mk II—famously beat Ferrari’s 330 P3 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. (If you want the full story of the saga, check out the fictionalized version in Ford v Ferrari , starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon.)

Fast forward several decades to this slick car, unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Tamiya’s model car kit does a stellar job replicating the 2015 Ford GT—this set doesn’t even skip the underside design.

There are also buttresses, door-side air tunnels, and head and tail lights with multiple pieces. Plus, it comes with a metal-plated wheel, an oil tank, and a complete set of decals, including optional racing stripes.

Scale1:24
Dimensions13.8 x 7.8 x 3.2 in.

Revell 1968 Volkswagen Beetle Model Car Kit

1968 Volkswagen Beetle Model Car Kit

Volkswagon ended the Beetle’s production in 2019—more than 23 million cars were sold worldwide during its 70-plus-year run. But of all bugs that came off the assembly line, the 1968 Beetle is perhaps the most iconic.

This 1:24-scale model kit features a steering wheel that can be built on the left or right side, an opening front hood, and a detailed 1500-cc-rear-mounted engine. Chrome plates, black tires, waterslide decals, and a painting guide also come with it. Keep in mind that this kit requires model glue, though, sold separately.

Users love the model’s clean fitting parts, but some note it may be too challenging for its suggested age of 12 or older.

Dimensions10 x 7 x 5 in.

Lego 1960s Ford Mustang Model Car Kit

1960s Ford Mustang Model Car Kit

Lego’s Ford Mustang model car kit has parts to customize your creation, including exhaust pipes, front chin and rear ducktail spoilers, and a nitrous oxide tank.

The mini 1960s muscle car has realistic details, such as white racing stripes and five-spoke rims, plus there’s a V8 engine, an air filter, hoses, and a battery under the front hood. The trunk and doors also open, and other highlights include a removable roof panel, a dashboard with radio, a gearshift on the console, and an operational steering wheel.

LEGO Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Chevrolet Camaro Z28

This Chevy Camaro Z28 from the Lego Icons series is an excellent build for adults. It’s made of over 1,400 pieces and comes with a set of racing stripes so you can customize the appearance of your car with grey, white, or red accents. You can also choose which headlights the Camaro has.

Several users say this is one of their favorite Lego builds due to its extensive detail and fun, lengthy build process. One notes the interior of the car as a standout, with small details like an open comic book in the backseat and rear view mirror ornaments.

LEGO Ferrari 488 GTE Model Car Kit

Ferrari 488 GTE Model Car Kit

Lego’s take on the iconic Ferrari 488 GTE has a ton of authentic features, including original race stickers and paint colors, a V8 engine with moving pistons, and interior details that are incredibly accurate. There’s also a functional steering wheel and two doors that open, plus front and rear suspension.

The 1,677-piece set is for experienced Lego builders, and although its scale isn’t listed, the model car is quite large at 19 inches long.
