With pending re-release of the Aoshima Road Warrior interceptor, is any one going to do castings of the conversion parts to back date it to the 1st Mad Max version??

AFX-n-Scale Resin did an awesome set that had everything needed to make it like when the Interceptor first rolled out of the garage. The pieces are flawless!!!!! They look like white styrene! Fit like a glove as well.

Whoa afx's just right down the road from me in Nashville. On the other hand I found this guy at the ACME show that is making a conversion kit that even includes the revell parts pack engine for the car,going to be around 20 bucks but has way more than this kit.In about a few weeks he's suppost to have them into production. It's called "Panhandle Resin". PM me for his e-mail,I don't want to post it out in the open.

Does "Panhandle Resin" have a complete back set? Isn't the parts part engine a 427? MM's car was a 351 clevo with HEMI sound dubed in.

Not entirely sure what he's going to do about the engine,from what I saw of what was done so far he just had to finish the front spolier/body kit before he started the engine area.

I e-mailed the ebay seller...he says that he gets them on consignment...???..only puts them up when the producer makes them..This is frustrating...I wish Aoshima just gave the option to build either MM1 or MM2 versions...I would gladly pay more...and even buy 3 kits so i can have all versions of the Interceptor...and not have to wait for some guy to get off his ass and make them..."Hey SUPPLIER.....this is DEMAND calling"

Thanks Renato, I have managed to pick up a set here in Australia.

I agree it would be easier if Aoshima gave us the choose, but I think it has some thing to do with licensing

from the chap who owns the 1:1 MM1

Im not sure I understand.....the Aoshima kit is labelled as the Interceptor, Mad Max2, the MPF logos(decals) and on their website has the trademark disclosure.

Aoshima has repeatedly said on their Facebook page that they have always wanted to do the MM1, have contacted the license owner (apparently the owner of the 1:1 car), but are unable to secure a license.

No you can't because it belongs to me & it's on loan & no I'm not selling, haha. Someone needs to take the bull by the horns & just cast a set & start selling. If the company that made them is no longer in business , what's the problem. Companies go out of business all the time & other companies will fill the need, it's called supply & demand & it's smart business practice.

If I owned the MM1...I would sooooo let Aoshima do it.....Its not everyday that a car you own becomes ...immortalized!..I would have them come over and allow them to 3d scan every nut and bolt,every ding and dent! I would want MY car to be modelled as accurately as possible.

Can you make YOUR own masters using the A/fx as a guide for accuracy and cast those....and make millions of dollars and satisfy millions of model car fans?
