If AMT can release a kit of a compact towing a trailer, why can't Premier?

Here's that silly little Falcon kit.  It's too narrow and too tall just for starters. It came with that slick two tone paint job. Once in the stripper the parts all fell apart, looked like they assembled it with rubber cement.

"'60s inflation" has an all-new meaning after seeing the Premier Falcon's roof.  :wacko:

I have to pull it out and work on it again. I had started it for an April Fools Day theme a few years ago.  I was planning on doing a really nice job on it with a wired engine, Alclad and BMF.  I thought that would be funny to see all that work on that car.

I just watched that Maverick go over my budget.

Wish I could get one. I have the Trans Am from them!!

 

And I have seen that Jeep kit a few times recently on evilbay too.

Never knew 'Stock-like' parts were in that box. I am interested in that one now

And some of us have no respect for the classics. ..

Have no fear, the one in the box is still sealed.

Dan...Missing Link has one out in resin...much better quality than the Otaki kit, IMO.

Posted this in the "What did you get today " section but I think it fits here as well. Never saw another one myself.

Some of the artwork on the boxes really brings back a lot of memories.

Like any good model builder in Wisconsin, I built a Green Bay Packers van when this kit was first released. Think I still have the rest of the decal sheet someplace.
