MPC Turtle Wax 1982 Dodge Custom Van


Recommended Posts

It’s a pretty nice kit to start with. I have a few, but I was actually hoping for a “Coke” release like they did with the Ford Van, with Coke decals and a Coke machine. I have nothing against Turtle Wax, it’s just not an inspiring brand to me.

When I first saw the photo I thought someone had unearthing an old kit version I never saw before! 😄

As far as Turtle Wax,  I’ll betcha they ponied up for the project.

So?

Tinted Windows and New Decals? That's all?

Colour me totally unimpressed.

I do hope it sells well, however. Kits like this one pay for the restoration of kits like the recent '64 Olds. So, in that sense I am happy to see it, and hope it is a blazing Success.

{Bring on the Turtle Wax, Mod Stock or Super Stock kits.

Now that's a great idea for this. I prefer the short wheel base models but that just requires a little surgery .  If I build one it will be with the RT theme and the Charger nose.

Making a shorty should be no big deal and then the Chargers parts will go on !

The Turtle Wax van looks cool.  If that is not a re-issue, it is fun how they came up with a retro look for this. 

Its reissue of the Bad Company version with a new decal sheet
