RTS Caravan 71 Roadrunner

Recommended Posts

After watching the Mecum Indy 2019 Auction, I had a thought come back in my head and went digging for an old partial buildup. Threw it in the stripper and got to cutting. Not sure how well this will go but, here I go. Gonna be a long process due to time for modeling and having too many projects.

Me and my son were at the auction and the one that caught our eyes was the green Duster. The paint job on it was 
awesome !
Good luck on your project, great start !

Oddly ( or not ) MPC's 1972 Road Runner annual kit's customising parts are eerily similar to the 1971 RTS Road Runner ( BTW , what-ever happened to the custom parts from that 1972-only issue ? ) :

I've looked at that before but to me only the paint scheme is similar. Hood and nose are different

I've always loved the Duster ( either iteration ; both are 1970 models ) and the 1970 Road Runner RTS cars . For 1971 the only all-new RTS car was the redesigned 1971 Road Runner (albeit , 383-powered vs. the 1970 Hemi) .

Have fun replicating that RTS Duster !

That's why I haven't even attempted anything on it yet

Started some nose work. I read where the nose was extended 6" so I added a 1/4"
