Also the Petty Dart . And the 1975 Dodge  Dart Sport. Demon and Dart Sport will be in MPC packaging and the Petty Dart is AMT....I hope it's a Dart Swinger like the original.

There was an original one of those listed on eBay this morning for $195.  The description goes on and on about it being never reissued.  I was very tempted to e-mail the seller and tell him he better find that sucker who didn't know, was impatient or needed to have an original kit because the value of his object was about to severely plummet.

I had three mint unbuilts at one time.....Mine came from Dean Milanos Model Kit museum..That's the one I held on to....Other two were sold on eBay to pay bills.

I have a builtup I've thought long and hard about selling it off while the gettin is good,,,,,, I have decent money in it but not an out of this world price though either.

 

My luck is if I sell it, the re-issue would get cancelled.

It wouldn't be under the AMT listings....search on MPC.

Thank you , Rob and Steve !

I obviously assumed that , since AMT / MPC got married back in 1986 (that long ago already ?!?!?) , that all formerly-marked-"MPC" kits would be under the AMT banner .

 

Thanks again :)

I also noticed that the Promo-style 1974 Barracuda is slated for reissue , too !

Why does *that* excite me ? That kit represents a rarety in the "1:1" realm : a non-'Cuda model with the 360 (flat hood gives it away) !!

A BS23L4 is rare in and of its self , but a BH23L4 is a virtual anomaly !

 

Can't wait for a "proper" reissue of the 1975-1976 Dart Sport ! Hopefully , the braintrust at Round2 will see fit to return that kit to its 1976 Annual origins , but with some updates / additions ; the wheels and tyres from the Smokey Chaser (or whatever that 1977 issue of that kit was called) would be most welcomed ...

... especially instead of those grotesque "dartboard" wheels from the '75-'76 annual :wacko: . And , a full complement of freshie decals would be great , too (in es , factory stripe option ; and , perhaps , some Hang 10 decals !).

 

Am I the only one who'd really like to see Round2 re-release the old MPC whitewall tyres from the 1974 & earlier annuals ?

We get the G70's in a few kits. Not white walled, but we have gotten them.

The F-70's were in the Model King 70 Pontiac Bonneville convertible with Boat.

Agin not printed whit the white walls, but we did get them. I was surprised about that though,

I thought they had been altered into the similar size Polyglass tires in many mid-size cars since the mid 70's.

 

I too would like to see them white walled again. I would also like to see MPC's original Power-Cushion's re-issued.

 

How long before we get the Firestone Supreme's with Redlines on one side & Whites on the other??

Or even the Blue/Red or Blue/White option??

Well personally I needed some good news today and the return of the Petty kit car was it! I have tried litterally dozens of times to snag an example of this kit on ebay, but the price always goes higher than I can pay. Even for junk ones! Now I can get a couple or three of them for what I would have paid for an original. I'm very happy. :D

I have heard the truck will be re-issued but after the first go round I doubt greatly that it will be paired with the car again. ;)

Does it have to be paired with the Kit Car to have those decals again??

 

But, We Are getting a Number of Petty re-issues lately, so I was wondering

if the LN Race car hauler would be one of them too??

Whether separately or teamed with the Kit Car makes No difference to me!!

I can't imagine the race car hauler would have Petty decals, it is a Ford...  (wouldn't Petty back then have had a Dodge truck for a hauler?)

it's the way it was originally issued.

 

And word on the street is they're going to cook up something similar to this, too, out of the AMT C600 City Hauler...
