AMT Raiders' Coach

Recommended Posts

Been a while since I've really built up anything, but have a newly crafted build space in my basement, and figured it was time to do a quick build. 

Noticed most of the tributes to the late George Barris touched on his work on the Batmobile, Monkeemobile, and other Kustoms, but my longtime fav, the wild Raiders' Coach, didn't get much attention. I did a little digging and found little else -- this one seems to have made its mark on pop culture back in '68, and then vanished seemingly into thin air.

In any case, I managed to get a hold of AMT's 2000 re-pop of the original MPC kit last night, and at least got the frame for the tow rig, the coach chassis, and the two Pontiac 428 blocks glued together. I'll be building it somewhat quickly and largely box stock, but I do have a few little tricks in store for it that you might get some "kicks" out of, so stay tuned. :-)
