I was gonna snag a 53 starliner model off fleabay, to test some ideas I had on the small scale. I was either gonna try an AMT model like this, as I think I could use some of the extra parts. Its a three in one model

AMT reissued this kit every so many years. The kits are probably identical, except for the packaging. I built a few a long time ago and they are easy to build.

Yep...I've even built one or two into running models...slot cars..!
Also what they call..."kit bashing" and used parts to build a Conestoga slot car. Actually it's a panel wagon...but who's counting..!?

From the early versions to the last, there are some variations in a few of the modified parts, but all of the stock parts are there regardless of the packaging.

The 3 in 1 kit added some custom parts, otherwise they're pretty much the same.

1:25 scale

Add a few sprue sheets and you get different releases...
Heck, IIRC there's even an Allison airplane engine funny car version out there...
