Tim Boyd is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on model cars and model car kits. After achieving regional and national model car contest wins, he became a model car journalist, eventually authoring more than 500 published works during the next 40 years. His monthly "Modeler's Corner" column was a highly popular feature in Street Rodder magazine for 17 years, and he is by far the longest running and most prolific contributor to Scale Auto, the world's most popular model car magazine. Boyd authored the book Collecting Model Car and Truck Kits in 2001, and was elected to the International Model Car Museum's Hall of Fame, also in 2001. He retired from a 35-year marketing and design career in the auto industry and lives in Southern Michigan.
"An essential guide for anyone looking to build a collection of
muscle car kits, or who are interested in getting the kits of their
favorite manufacturer, or even just of the cars they have owned in
the past."--Paul T. Vogel"Midwest Book Review" (07/25/2018)
"We highly recommend this one."--Mopar Collector's Guide (08/15/2018)
"... hugely informative book."-- (12/28/2018)
"The book goes beyond the plastic kits. Boyd does a fantastic job of tying the history of the actual cars to their pint-sized counterparts. Whether you collect full-sized cars or their diminutive-sized counterparts, this is a great source of historic information."-- (06/06/2019)
