Don't see one of these very often.

They were produced in a series of 1,000 kits worldwide. This is #946.

 

The kit tires were a soft resin that was disintegrating. I got a set of AMT B.F. Goodrich Radial/TAs to replace them, and tried piecing this together to see how it sits.

 

I like it. May have to put this on the front burner.

Cavalier resins, had one of these & got rid of it, what a piece of junk, should have saved your money & bought an Aoshima kit, but that's just my opinion.

Cavalier Resins Mad Max ? Cavalier Resins : Cordillia ? Quatraporte ? Quadravalvorie ? Rolls Can'ardley  ? Uetopia Turtletop ? Dymaxion (this one is where my screen  name is from) ? Glashphoxx ? Oxnart ? Plyolodillo ? Zen ? Wartburg ? Lemming ? Scarab ? Slinkytoe ? Dashblinky ? Possibly any looser made by Generally More ? I sure do hope it is a Mad Max !     Thanx ..

Oh, they're not bad if you spend a little time on them. This is their '74 Holden Torana done up as a Main Force Patrol Interceptor.

And I have an Aoshima model built. They're okay. They need attention, too, though.

And the model in blue is the black Interceptor from "Mad Max." It'll look better once it's painted.

I have number 942.  It is better then the Monsters in Motion disaster of a resin I have.  I would trade that off for two kits any day.
