Daytona Transport Truck (1/25)
Breaking news! The skilled researchers working in the vintage MPC tooling vault have uncovered another exciting GEM! It's the futuristic Daytona Transport Truck, a forward-thinking design from the creative minds at MPC during the 1960s! This unusual kit predicted what "car haulers" might look like today. Its features included many "space age" design elements which were so popular in the 1960's. The kit builds into two sections: a forward cab that swivels, connected to a long, flowing, fully enclosed bed section. The canopy of the cab opens and piston arms on the swivel assembly move in an out when the cab is moved side to side. For power, the kit includes an all-chrome six-cylinder overhead cam motor set up in a front wheel drive configuration. To top things off, you can even use the finished model as a wild custom display case for any of your other built models that fit inside the "bubble-topped" transport bed!
The Transporter is a grand size for a 1/25 scale kit. So much so, we're not sure how MPC managed to stuff all those big parts into their standard box size back in the day. To make sure the parts don't get compromised, this 2012 reissue has been packaged in a slightly larger box. This extra room will also allowed MPC to include two sets of window parts! One set will be clear, the other tinted light blue, offering you an easy way to give your build a truly custom look! The kit is molded in white instead of red as it was originally. This is a huge improvement if you wish to paint your model any color other than red. The kit has lots of gleaming chrome parts, hollow black vinyl tires and colorful water-release decals.
