Polar Lights '69 Dodge Charger Funny Car Hot Wheels

Here's hoping Round 2 uses the Hot Wheels brand on many of their future kits.

I can see a HW Ford Louisville hauler, a HW Dodge L700 car carrier, a HW Ford van (MPC kit please!), as well as a matching muscle car series.

Dare I say - 69 Charger, 67 Camaro, 69 Barracuda or 69 Oldsmobile?

If it works for collectible Coca-Cola, then the Mattel die-casts have a following too!

That kit's just begging for a few sheets of Bare Metal Foil 😁

That might be difficult to get jut now. But Molotow, Spaz Stick, Alclad II Chrome, or similar finish might do it justice.

Agreed! If you gotta use sponsorship, let's have it automotive (related) based! I'd rather have these decals in my stash than a bunch of Coke logos.

If I wanted to try to match the finish on that Hot Wheels thing, I think I'd at least give Krylon Silver Shimmer a try. (I've used the blue, and have the green and red. The Blue Shimmer job came out nice.)

AK Interactive Extreme Metal has looked most impressive to me recently. I've also used Vallejo Metal Color a lot.

Interesting that Mattel, a toy company, has licensed their branding to what is essentially another toy company.

 

 

Wouldn't be the first time. AMT/Ertl had a line of 1/32 scale Hot Wheels branded kits back in the early 90s.

I think it was Monogram in the 80s.

Does anybody even remember when Mattel owned both Hot Wheels AND Monogram models at the same time?

Not just Monogram. I can't find my box, but the 34 Sedan Delivery in the photo with the Blueprinter was a Hot Wheels labeled AMT kit.
