Anyone Know Of A Subaru Brat Conversion?

Recommended Posts

I've been putting together a list of both movie and real-world competitors from the Cannonball rallies. I've managed to collect quite a few for future builds. With the reissue of the AMT Subaru Brat, I'm wondering if anyone has ever made or is considering making a conversion to turn the BRAT into a Subaru GL as driven by Jackie Chan in the original movie? I found an obscure Japanese kit a couple years ago, but it was in 1/20 scale.

The GL was based on the 2nd gen Brat. So the AMT kit would be completely useless for the movie car.

Sadly true. And sadly no model of the 2nd gen Brat which IMHO looks 1000% better. Won't stop me from building another '79, but 13 years ago (!!!) when I was looking for inspiration for my 1st gen STi build I realized how much cooler it could have/would have been w/the 2nd gen design.
