Ford Model A Kits Lineage

Tracing the lineage of Ford Model A plastic model kits from any manufacturer in 1/24 and 1/25 scale. I thought this would be simple but have run into conflicts and confusion because each kit has been offered a number of times throughout the years under a new theme or name, with new packaging – and some have extras, some have less parts. There’s really no easy way to do this so I hope to keep adding and updating this post as needed. Information is included to confirmed kits, like dates that were printed on the kits or the model kit number etc. or some tag lines from the box. Although some are indicated with “NOT CONFIRMED”.

All the models listed below are Ford Model A kits. Ford Model A’s were built from 1928-1931 and have been a very popular subject in scale models for generations. Many of the base kits are 40+ years old but are still on the market today! The ever popular 1932 Ford, Model B, Roadster, Coupe and Sedan are not Model A Fords therefore are not on this list.

In no way is this list complete. You are welcome to take it and modify it. This was something I had from a long time ago.
