Rumor has it, based on comments in another thread, that this kit will be making a comeback soon as a reissued MPC 2wd D100 1978 model.

That would be perfect. With the aftermarket, converting it to a 4x4 would be easy. However a slammed D100 might look good too. Multiple kits.

Well, we moved into this temporary house a while ago  & I'm going nuts not being able to work on something. So I went to the garage & dug this out & a couple boxes of supplies so I'd have something to work on. I couldn't get to everything so I'm limited on what I can do. I did find some stuff to build the exhaust & do some more stuff under the hood. The glass had the DODGE decal on it & I was gonna try to take it off but if I screw it up I don't have another windshield, so it stays. Not much done, but I do feel better. I'm telling ya, this model thing is like an addiction!

A very nice example of what a built kit can be turned into. I enjoy the engine detail and the chassis detail also.

Hey Carl, this is a picture of what I used. I used it right out of the can, the interior is the same paint with a satin clear over it. Hope this helps.

A real nice save.  I like seeing builds like this.  I made a short bed out of one of these trucks to replicate a truck that I owned.  Great work Mark.:rolleyes:

I got most of the chassis done. I used the front & rear ends from a Ramcharger kit. The stance & fit looks o.k. to me.

That's a very inspiring build    :wub:

Nice to know that it's being reissued. This has the benefit of making a ready market for resin versions of the '79 LRE and mid-70s grills to supplement that '77/'78 option.

Mark, I've used masking tape to remove old decals before and a piece might work on that windshield decal.
