This was a quick little job on a 1/64 Motormax Plymouth Reliant diecast. I'm still looking for a 1/24 version .. it's out there somewhere. The first image is what I started with .. the green one. I painted it and touche dit back up again along with the start of graffiti.

 

This was my daughter's first car .. a gift from my aunt who also gave me MT first car!

 

In the end the car was completely covered with graffiti written by all her friends .. inside AND out! I'm giving this to here along with a .003" pen so she can do the graffiti.

As far as I know, the only K-car model done was the Charger of that era.

I love it. Drove alot of them over the years. The last was a 85 wagon with the woodgrain. I wouldn't

mind finding a 1:24 scale one.

This is the 1/24 version I've been looking for but no regular die cast sellers seem to have any.

Well, I'll be darned.  My wife had one almost exactly like that when we met.

Cute. That's gotta be some small writing.

 

Here's like the 1/24 I picked up from a diecast vendor at a flea market. I couldn't believe some company made a strong investment in a very unlikely subject. A 4-door no less. I'd love to see the market research that suggested this would be hot seller. For the price, it's pretty well done.

What does that car have to do with "American Graffiti?"  :blink:
