Who got the Accurate Miniatures molds?

Pretty much what the title says. I’m specifically interested in the Mustang Mk.I and the SBD-2 Dauntless, but I liked all their kits and am interested who is reissuing them now.

I think Accurate Minatures is still alive and kicking. They have some of their kits sold as reboxed & relabeled by other companies. The kits can still be found in the AM box on ebay from time to time.

Please see link for history or of reboxing of…

I think they technically might still exist but not in way most modelers would think of when we ask if a company is still alive.

Found this article which may be dated.

Academy and Italeri are two that seems to rebox the plastic. Use scalemates to find the reboxing.

I am basically an armor guy. But I have built a couple of AM planes over the years and enjoyed the builds. Those molds will resurface somewhere I hope. Who ever ends up with them I hope they maintain the quality of Accurate Miniatures !

Accurate Miniatures tooling is in the hands of Academy. Ditto for any Hobby Craft tooling.

Yes, academy has most the molds. In these pictures

The Academy B-25 and Academy Dauntless are the AM molds. I love the accurate miniatures kit, just finished up their avenger and it was very enjoyable with an excellent fit. As you can see I have another one and I’m excited to build it


Yes, the Academy SBD-2 kit is the former Accurate Miniatures model. Very nice, too.

What about some Italeri reissues?

You can also routinely find AM kits on EBay and the local hobby stores in my area often have a couple on consignment

You can use the scalemates website to see which AM kits were reboxed by other companies.
