Here's part #4. The picture is intentionally close up, as I think this kit was the only kit ever molded in this color, so the bare plastic color is the main clue:

This is just a "Wild Guess", but could it be from Revell '54 Chevy Sedan (The HotRod Series kit)? At least it's molded in color which is pretty close of that.

It's not that kit, but you're very close...

Well, then I guess again, is it the kit what my Dad built as his first Model Car: Monogram '53 Chevy. Again, the plastic color looks like pretty close. :lol:

You are correct, it's not from that issue. The year, make model, and scale Niko guessed are all correct, though. Almost got it...

That is the correct kit. No idea why Revell tried out the suspended flakes, but it is definitely unique.

Glenn, it's your turn. ^_^

You made it easy with that steering wheel pic Casey! I'll dig up something from my stash.

While this scoop may have appeared in various different kits, to my knowledge it only came in this color once. Ignore the gold paint, the stripper didnt do such a good job.

Well it has a terrible shape and looks like nothing that was ever seen in 1:1 so I'm thinking something from the 1970's. The plastic isn't very thick, so probably not Johan.

I'm thinking it's from an MPC '70s Pro Stock kit (or a street machine derivative)...

I guess a hint is in order. It is from an MPC pro stock kit, and it was a GM product.

Yes, I dont think it was blue either. The kit it came from was molded in this color.

Okay , the Grumpy's Toy Camaro I have is molded in white so I was just guessing . This " Screaming Eagle " kit I've been trying to find for a looong time , and I'm pretty sure it is blue .
