72 Chevy Wedge Racer's Wedge release announced.

Recommended Posts

Ok, question for you all,  

I have a racer's wedge/open road camper double kit. Will the camper fit on this model as a single axle version. Are there any mod's to be performed?  Been wanting to build the camper for quite a while now.

yes it should. The double axle was just for the racers wedge body, the camper is standard single axle wheelbase.

I had a customer back in the late '60's that had a camper, just like the one in the kit, that he was trying to sell me. The chassis on the 1:1 was a two axel with duel rear tires, if this helps.

Both the Racers Wedge and camper are typical hokey MPC kits from that era. Neither are 100% accurate as they were marketed to kids and what did we know! 

The camper interior is a bit out of scale when I put my 1:25 scale ruler against the components, which ruled them out for use on my other camper projects where I scratch built everything instead.
