Rocketfin Hobbies Scale Model Kit Blog and News: MPC Model Kits - Coming Back Big

MPC Model Kits - Coming Back Big

When I think of MPC models, I think of all those car kits that used to have all the weird and unusual features. The artwork on boxes showed the cars loaded with IMSA type panels, engine blowers, funky hood scoops and rear wings, side pipes, racing parts, dual engine options, and of course, who can forget the wild paint schemes and stripes for the decals.

I used to get most of those kits from a KMart close by in the 1980s and 1990s. The shelf was always chocked full of those kits, and they were hard to pass up.

Lately, Round2 has been bringing back some of those past kits. The outlandish and wild looking ones. The ones that most likely won't be built stock (if they can be built stock at all). I think it's about time for these models. The Monzas, Mustang IIs, the Pintos and Novas. It's time to put away the factory stock builds and step up with some imagination!

I hope Round2 keeps digging out these old molds and releasing them soon. I'm looking forward to them. The Pinto one for sure. That kit (or at least, the original one I have, from 1978) features a V8 engine option, and some custom parts. The old decals are not so good in the box, they are quite yellowish, but with a reissue, I can use the new 1970s stripes and really go retro! Should be fun!

What MPC kit would you like to see?
