    Now wouldn't it be dandy if this reissue was of the very first issues of this kit with the torsion bar suspension. One can only imagine all the grizzling if they did that. Not the easiest parts to assemble but quite different

    apparently the axle has to be set forward about 2mm so as the wheels are centered in the wheel arch. anybody know anything about this?

    Got two of these one built MPC production,  the unbuilt onr was moulded in New Zealand in the late 60's, with pretty ordinary tires, and terrible box art, will dig it out] and take a pic

    the easiest way to set up the ride hight for the torsion bar suspension is to first fit the shock absorbers to the chassis cross members and diffs. Then do the linkages, it's all rathar fiddly, but by doing it this way one has a reasonable chance of having all the drive wheels sitting evenely on the road

    Can't imagine it being the Torsion Bar version, they were only ever available on the first W Model, plus the cab over and the Challenger cement mixer. The torsion bar suspension was such a nightmare to construct that AMT pretty smartly dumped the idea and replaced it with the Hendrickson suspension.

    Good luck with that request, resin copy's would be about the only option. Not the easiest suspension to assemble,always had problems getting all the drive wheels to sit properly

    What color is the plastic on this re-release? Have got the original Aerodyne version in the dark grey plastic. Hopefully this is in white plastic this time.

    What rims and tires have you used? I'm guessing 68 Charger, looks exactly right
