1979 wagon model kit being re-issued in 2016
« on: December 21, 2015, 03:36:05 PM »
I'm on a model car site and it was announced that Round 2 (owners of AMT, MPC, and other old model kit brands) have added this to the list for next year. No specific quarter announced that I am aware of.

This is apparently the old MPC kit.
I know nothing about it, but will be buying one at least.

Not a 74, but at least it's a wagon.

The Ford Pinto has been enjoying a resurgence of popularity in recent years and I'd like to think this site may have had a little something to do with that!  I might just have to buy one of those myself!

This is exactly the time I was waiting for. I even have an old unfinished thunderbird turbo couple model that I can use to do the exact motor swap that I'm running on my car right now. Haha and its the right year too!

Brings to mind the guy from the mad max fury road movie "What a Day! What a lovely day!"

Where did you find this information at? I want to get one when it comes back out. Got an 80 runabout and the 79 wagon is the only square front end Pinto model
