AMT Ecto-1A Model Kit is a 1:25 scale model kit based off the Ecto-1a from Ghostbusters II. It was originally released in 1989 by The Ertl Company under their AMT brand. It was later re-released in new packaging and with new decals (designed for being an Ecto-1 or an Ecto-1A) in May 2012[1] when the AMT brand was owned by Round 2, LLC. Round 2's packaging is near-identical to their later re-release of the Polar Lights Ecto-1 snap model kit.


Ghostbusters is a classic American film full of spooky humor from beginning to end. The Ecto-1 returns to help the 'Busters save the day once again. Loaded with all of the gear necessary to take down any nasty poltergeist that gets in their way. The kit features a detailed equipment rack and decals to decorate the car as the Ecto-1 or the Ecto-1A.[2]
