Topics I've Started

74 Dodge Challenger rebuild

20 August 2014 - 03:39 PM

Another eBay purchase in not too bad of shape - no big plans for this one, just a basic rebuild keeping the MPC "character"  I had a resin '74 hood in the parts box.  For the engine I'm thinking of using the much maligned MPC Volare LA/ Torqueflite combo.  Wheels will either be slotted mags or Keystones 










73 Firebird Esprit

Quick mockup with an MPC Formula annual body, whitewalls and finned wheel covers from the Grand Prix and a Missing Link flat hood


1980 interior tub, modified Mopar bucket seats and three spoke wheel from a 72 GTO to make a deluxe interior


Thinking yellow paint and white upholstery






Buying multiple issues of the same kit

08 January 2014 - 02:34 PM

I was excited to snag a nice MPC '74 Road Runner annual at a decent price because I didn't have one in the stash


Of course I already have multiples of the '73 annual, '83 MPC reissue, RC2 in regular and checkerboard box as well as the Round 2 MPC Daisy Duke versions


Does anybody else like to have different versions of the same kit? (even if some are better and others the same inside the box)
