In Topic: TKM again

01 April 2015 - 11:26 AM

In the early or mid 1980s I purchased the TKM '81 Imperial because I wanted to build Buddy Arrington's NASCAR stocker.  He was the last guy running a Mopar & I was really into what he was doing.  After a LOT of grinding ( swear there were places that were a half inch thick )  mixing & matching parts from MPC & Monogram stock cars & Fred Cady decals I made something that is almost presentable.   It is kind of lopsided & goofy looking but it has sat for 30 years on my shelf.  Good luck finding one, he was selling on ebay a few years ago but not recently.  The sad thing about what he was doing is he never improved his product.  He was one of the first in the late '70s & the stuff was rough but everyone's was then.  When all the other folks continuously improved their product he never did.  If you have never seen his stuff in person be aware that he is just using a one piece mold with resin poured in.  Bumpers, lights, everything is all one piece.  I suppose with a LOT of time & effort something decent can be made but why bother ?  If you want an '81 Imp. I would just start scratch building you couldn't do worse.
