In Topic: MPC '71 Dodge Demon re release

28 January 2015 - 01:45 AM

I thought the Dodge demon would be reissued right after the Dodge Dart Sport that was released last year, at least that was the word on this forum.  


I guess that someone had lied.




Nobody lied, but a whole lotta people assumed

I think the motor wheel spyders were seen for the last time in the cruising series......the new kit due out soon has a set of cragars, and 5 spoke style americans....the ace.... :huh:





Gotta love a kit that still gives you all those options and 2 sets of mags. Some really fine Cragars and I'm pretty sure the other set are supposed to be Astro Supremes for a lowrider version. ;)


Yup...the Spyders are still absent, and the mags are as Steve described.  


The tires are nice.......a stock set of blackwalls (I believe they're recently tooled and have been used in other R2 kits, but can't recall where), a pair of pad-printed Blue Streak slicks, and a set of pad-printed Goodyears as used in the parts pack and '68 Z/28....perfect for an ElCamino-type conversion, right Steve?

Yes, but that was existing product, most likely even already packaged in the old Lindberg boxes, 


Exactly right.  Round2 has assigned a different "HL"-prefix number to the upcoming release.  The box art kit was built using one of the few remaining old Lindberg issues they had on hand.

I'm 99.9% sure this one won't be in a "faux-66" box.  As far as I know they're creating new art for this one with a turquoise built-up on the box....but that could change.

I see (in someone's avatar...you know who you are  ^_^) the 1/25 Lindberg '66 Chevelle Super Sport kit is about to be reissued very soon


I would guess the kit contents will be identical to the previous issues with a different box....I built-up on the box painted Artesian Turquoise would look nice ;)
