In Topic: AMT Hippie Hemi AMT 605 Mini Review

mr route 66

i feel like i'm telling you their is no Easter bunny.

the AMT Hippie Hemi and it's sister model the

Digger 'Cuda probably never existed in real life.

so, no i don't think they would produce a new chassis

for the Hippie Hemi.

this was the height of the model companies power and

they felt they could make models that they created.

that's why the kits are pretty darn interesting.

have a nice day!

that rebel racer jpg. looks ok to me.

i was saying that one of them was SMALL.

you can go to any online model shop and see them.


that was a big accomplishment back then.

up to then some of the kits, cars boats airplanes

would just look generally like what they were

supposed to be.

you can build all 4 and make a little oval track diorama! :)

have a nice day!

better model builders

the Avanti was designed by Raymond Loewy.

he also designed the '53 Starlite coupe.

he ranks up there with Virgil Exner at Chrysler and

Brooks Stevens who designed the Excalibur and was

an industrial designer with many product designs that

became iconic in 40's and 50's America.

the Avanti's one interesting feature was a Paxton


be interesting to see if that's included in kit

have a nice day!

mike modeler

this is from Model Car Roundup's site.

'Part of a Dirtrack Racecars, Inc. Limited Production Series of Vintage Lindberg Super Modifieds from the 1960's.'

i think the 'Super' part is a little off.

being it's a DTRC production of a Lindberg kit,

my statements about Lindberg quality are N/A here.

don't know what DTRC quality is like.

these look like fun little kits.

have a nice day!

mr most

these are different.

they're four individual kit's that just

appeared on Megahobby and a couple other places.

here's pic's of other three.

the quality of my other Lindberg kits has been A1.

i guess you're talking about lack of detail.

i don't think they're supposed to precision kits for advanced builders.

that's the new White Lightning that came out kind of small.

have a nice day!
