The Odyssey and a dune buggy are cast in resin and sold by Scale Equipment Ltd. Someone also cast the soap box derby car (w/streamliner body) from the AMT '61(?) Ford pickup kit, IIRC.

The Artic Cat snowmobile was (is) available in resin as well. I believe it is the one from the Revell Ice Patrol kit, might be available from Scale Equipment as well?

I did get one from Grandpa's Toys Decades ago . I painted it all white . Blank w/no sponser . This is the way most of the Soap Box Derby Racers showed up . The sponsers kicked in ad money at the track . Ths Family mostly made the investment of the material and building time . Thanx ..
