Little Red Wagon

Recommended Posts

I finished this up a couple months ago. I hope you all like it. Those doors were a PITA!

I know what you mean about the doors, so much that I ended up gluing mine closed. Also I should have done some research on the Wagon, I put the glass in mine.

Good job on your Wagon.

looks good!  What paint did you use?

 

It is Testors dark gloss red with Modelmasters high gloss clearcoat.

Here's some pics with the doors open...Still need to attach the tailgate "stays", but may leave them off just 'cuz I like to close the gate sometimes.

Very nice work! I have a "Little Red Wagon" kit, maybe I should get into it. Weren't there two different makers of the kit, something like Lindberg and MPC?

IMC made the 1st one. then Lindberg label came many MANY years later. Exactly when they ended up with it, I have no idea

Nice OOB build of a very finicky kit! It's red! I agree on what a pain the doors are on this kit.

On it's history; IMC tooled it up originally, (Bud Anderson helped design it after he left AMT, but I can't remember if he went to IMC, then MPC from AMT, or vice versa). IMC merged with Hawk in the late 60s, (I have a complete unbuilt IMC Dodge L700 COE that has the "IMC/Hawk" logo on the instructions), & Testors bought out both companies in 69/early 70s, & reissued many of their kits back then. Lindberg got it when RPM International, owner of Testor Corporation bought them out, & merged the product lines together. That's why what IMC tooling was left in the US was reissued under Lindberg.
