That's a beautiful Gremlin, mango! Did the red stripe decals come with the kit? The ' 76 Gremlin reissue doesn't have any red ones. :angry:

Thanks everyone for all these kind comments, yes those stripe decals come with the kit, that is the only choice you've got with the 75 model on the kit B)

Diablotin très agréable! Choix parfait de couleurs; beaucoup mieux que les couleurs de marron des années 1970 fades typiques.

J'ai toujours le 1976 [Gremlin] rééditent d'il y a deux ou trois années. Je suis un peu intimidé par cela!

The kit you started with wasn't exactly AMT's best effort engineering-wise, so you are to be commended for making this build turn out so nicely.   Suddenly it's the '70s all over again!

I always liked Gremlins.  Your build is an excellent example - and SHINY :) :) :)  to boot.

Very nice, but the earlier small bumper gremlins was far better looking.

Thanks for all these kind comments, I'll be out "of town" for a few days so I couldn't check the forum, but watch out for another AMC 70ies production in the near future :D

I never liked the Gremlin but you've managed to make it look very appealing. Nice work!

 

(I DO like the Pacer though!)

Thanks again for your comments, I was "out" for a few days so couldn't answer here.

Joe Handley, the L6 comes from an AMT Pacer wagon kit ;)
