In Topic: Obscure Kits You Never Knew Were Made...Until Now

I thought I recognized those wheels on the trailer as being from the IMC kits. I wouldn't mind having one of their '65 Plymouths again.

 

Very obscure kit, but two showed up on eBay this past week - Premier's 1/24th scale English Ford Prefect 100E:

It would need a lot of whittling to correct, especially around the windshield and side windows, but it would be a great alternative body for a gasser! Anyone here have one?

 

If I did, it'd already be built - bone stock!


In Topic: What iconic if slightly funky European car will we get next?

MkI Fiesta's a possibility, I doubt we'd get a full US version but if they kit the XR2 it'd have the round headlights. Current generation Fiesta ST, maybe - in that case maybe RoG could do the Euro version as full detail with a US five-door snapper designed in such a way to make kitbashing as easy as possible? Or they could just do a Focus ST which comes with a heaping helping of doors worldwide.

 

I'd like to see a Morris Minor, too. And how about a Volvo 140 series?

Greenlight makes a new Escape in 1/43 and I've seen Kuga versions of it (the diecast) for the EU market, so you might be able to get one of those locally.


In Topic: 57 Ford, as a 2nd Family Car?

Don't forget the extent to which Cadillac *dominated* the upper-price segment, it was a good year for Lincoln if they had a quarter of Cadillac's volume. The "two-Ford" ads were probably an attempt to open a second front on GM's share of the high-end market.


In Topic: Corvettes and trunks

Sports cars and/or 'sporty' cars have never had much of a trunk. Viper,Prowler,early T-birds,MGs,That's just the way they are. If you want a trunk,get a Cadillac.

Nobody ever told that to the Golf GTI design team...
