I thought they were from the Ice Cream Truck, but Google let me know otherwise. Agreed they look familiar.........

I was thinking they looked like some gothic trim from the Munsters Coach or the Barnabas Collins Vampire Van but they pics of the box art of those kits I googled don't show anything like that.

Time for another hint: this kit was reissued under the AMT label during the RC2 ownership period, though it was originally an MPC designed kit.

No, neither one of those. I wouldn't call it a show rod, but it is human powered.  :blink:

I don't think they are on the RC2 reissue. Look at an original MPC kit.

yeah, same here with the ice cycle. The rickshaw is just a wild guess. This one is driving me nuts because I know I've seen those parts before. I just can't remember where
