Acme 1/18 Fiat Dragster kit

Recommended Posts

I didn’t notice any info on this kit and thought some of you may be interested . Kit has a metal ( die cast ) frame and body and some headers painted white . The body is primed . Kit has a lot of chrome parts , perhaps too many . Engine block is white plastic . Soft rubber ( vinyl ) parts . Wires, screws and tires . No decals are included . No instructions are included, just 8 photos of the finished kit . Not sure when or even if I will start this kit . To be honest I am not sure I can assemble it the way it is supposed to be without some kind of directions . I can probably get it to look like a car but not sure about the little pieces and wires and hoses and such . :D

I started on mine a few months ago, painted the chassis, interior and body, started assembly and hit the wall. Not everything fits easily, so I opted to take a break. The overall detail looks good but if the parts don't fit well... :(

Fascinating kit. A new one on me, but it looks like it has potential to be a knockout.

Acme is the same folks that were behind GMP, right?   They do have finished versions of the Mondello & Matsubara and a couple others out, too.  Some of the finished ones are cheaper than the kit!

This kit is normally about 120 bucks but this one was found on the bay for 75 with free shipping. He had 5 at that time.
