Monogram PC1 Midget Racer

Recommended Posts

Here's a 90's re-issue Midget Racer built to display alongside my unbuilt original kit.  KIT No PC 1, Monograms very first plastic model.

The re-issue is identical to the first but made in polystyrene. The original was acetate.

Rattle can red, buffed out. Even after polishing the life out of the finish, it still isn't as glossy as the original acetate finish of the unbuilt kit!  Monogram moulding was first class, right from the starting line. The original kit had no chrome parts. My build has the chrome supplied by Molotow pen. A fantastic product, it really does look like chrome.

No racing number added for this build, the second issue kit got a number seven added, I wanted this build to replicate the first issue.

Thanks, I'm a sucker for a Monogram kit, the older the better!

Here's the wooden kit the plastic one replaced...
