Man, Juha's Marauder is SPECTACULAR!   Just WOW! 

 

I have the AirTrax '69 Chrysler 300 and '80 Mirada kits.

Bob, send an E-Mail to raurata@yahoo.com.

 

 

Last weekend, it was a Model Contest called Nordic Challenge here in Finland. Juha's Marauder was also there (The one I posted those pictures of) and there was the piece of paper next to every model with model's name and a short description. On Juha's Marauder, there read that it's built from AMT '69 Galaxie. That must have required lots of cutting and slicing! :blink:

Remember folks, we're talking about a man that turns Ramblers into Studebakers and shows us that 1955 Plymouths and Chevrolets can share lots of parts with a little massaging...

 

I wish I could blow the dough for one of these. I always thought the Marauder was a cool-looking ride. That satin black trunk, especially when paired with copper or red looks so good. And I usually don't like the satin black thing, but somehow, on this car, it looks right.

Hey all,

 

I heard that there was a new resin '70 Marauder kit out there, but I can't seem to find much info about it..

 

Is it true, and if so, where do  I get one........ :wub:

 

Cheers,   Ian

These Marauder castings are about the most perfect resin castings that I have ever seen. It is designed to use the AMT '69 Galaxie as a core kit. It includes etching for emblems as well. The bumpers are not plated, so you must Alcad them or send them off to plating.

This '69 Mercury Marquis convertible is basically the same car as the Marauder. It has a 360 HP 429 cubic inch engine with dual exhaust. The only way to tell a '69 Mercury from a '70 Mercury is the front turn signal light and the tail lights. These differences are very subtle

 

My thought is to modify the resin Marauder body to a Marquis convertible. I figure the chance of ever seeing this car in styrene 1/25 kit form is about as good as winning Powerball.

I made this one from the AMT '69 Ford XL Hardtop, so the conversion you want to do is possible.

One to keep in mind also is the Marauder is on a 3 inch shorter wheelbase than the Monterey and Marquis (121 vs 124).   The Marauder shared the 121 inch wheelbase w/ the Galaxie.
