MPC Flying Dutchman F/C

I tried to get this as close to the boxart, and the 1:1, as I could. Silver base, mix of Tamiya Light Pearl Blue and Pearl Green paint. Because the decals were not great, mix of original and replacement decals. White stripes are painted, Tamiya White. Tail light done with a Sharpie. Original tires were replaced as the fronts were dried out and somewhat brittle, the rears deformed. Boxstock, no wiring or extra detailing. Engine belt made with tape, painted black.

Nice work! I used to have this kit, but always felt it was just a bit too unusual for me. Your build looks very cool and pretty accurate color-wise. Always nice to see these kits built, rather than just sitting in a box on the shelf. Good on you for going out on a limb.

I just picked up a glue bomb one of these from my late friend’s collection.  Thanks for the inspiration to rebuild it Dave.  I hope mine comes out half as nice as yours..
