has any one done a 1/24 or 1/25 scale widebody (87-89) mitsubishi starion or chrysler conquest? i've seen a flatside kit before but was curious if there was a wide body availible. if someone wanted to make one there is a ton of people looking for a kit of this car as there is a huge starquest cult.

a wide body such as this 87 Attached File  814826072_a0dd8f8305.jpg   142.24KB   27 downloads would be awesome as a old school drifter or simply as a factory fresh car!

I have 3 Mitsubishi Starion kits here, and i am working on the TSI version conversion. Its been a while since i did anything with it, but now i have a renewed fixation with it. Do any one of our slushers(resin casters) wanna step up to the plate and cast off of my TSI? Its a ways away from completion, but it will be very accurate since i have had 3 1:1 Conquests' and i am very familiar with the sexy bodystyle.

the fiji blue has got to be one of the sharpest colors for a conquest.

I remember seeing a red one in a dealership in about '88 as a car fixated pre-teen and falling in love with them.

how hard are parts to find to restore one???

Hey Jay, I know someone who may have an interest in getting your conversion body cast in resin.  He's the same guy who did your wheels, LOL!

I'm interested in one of these; I bought two of the Fujimi kits with the hopes of making the widebody version but haven't had the gumption to tackle it yet.
