Man, now that's some great reaction!

 

I see what you mean, jaymcminn about the proportionning. It is a bit off, and the MPC if far fuglier than the real thing. Of course, that's not saying much, since, the real think is some kind of cruel joke. I think it looks like a weird shoe mated with a doorstopper, myself. 

 

Your'e right about the Death Race idea, Jantrix; as I said in my review, it would make an  awesome flying car, too.

Looks a bit like a Lotus Esprit done exactly wrong.

 

I see a bit of the Fiat too, only it works on the Fiat.

Spot on on both comments! A truly awful styling exercise. There is one of these kits on evilbay now.

Look at the car again and then think Death Race/Post Apoc, and suddenly the build possibilities open up. I would build this in a NY minute.

I was thinking the same thing... <_<

You know what this really is is  one of Harry's "What is it's."  Man nobody would have gotten this one.

I got one made by Airfix.  Dont know how the body proportions are  compared to the MPC. I might just have to open this one and see!!

I think Edsel-Dan is right. I  believe that MPC, Airfix and maybe Arii have the same mould. 

 

You'll love it. And by that, I mean you'll be repulsed! Sweet!!!

In my effort to support a response to the other Rainbow thread, I came across this. This Ikko, Japan model kit sure looks like your old MPC kit. (Or is it the other way around?)

Maybe open up rear wheel wells a little more, put on new wheels and make it a fastback and it would have potential

Whoa, weird. 

 

That Ikko kit has a weird hybrid vibe about it. It has the body of the MPC (hard roof, weird headlight covers) but the chassis of the powered version. Generally, though, it seems to be the MPC. So, are there three, or four, versions of this? Two of each mould; one powered, one unpowered?

 

To think of this much kittage for such a bizarre car, and yet I can't get a model of a 77 Cougar, and they made TONS of those...

To say that the aesthetic sensibilities of certain Italian designers working in the '70s/'80s was, um.... questionable, would be being kind!  :lol:

I'm assuming that car must have been designed during a bad acid trip.

I seem to recall there were other outrageous '70s show cars also kitted by Airfix..when I was a kid, IIRC they were sold in the US under the 'US Airfix' brand...I remember the Ferrari Rainbow and maybe a Maserati (Boomerang?)....
