Resin for today 6/3/22 - AutoCult's Winfield Reactor
A bit of a throwback to all the 1/25 custom car kits I remember from the 1960s - names like Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Alexander Brothers, Bill Cushenberry, and Gene Winfield. The Reactor (formerly the Autorama Special) includes parts of a Citroen DS chassis and a turbochaged Corvair engine. Entry is by the rear-hinged bubble top/roof and butterfly-style doors. Here's a pic of the real one at Pebble, next to the Lane Museum's Gyro-X and the Pontiac Vivant show car (recently modelled by Matrix and posted here not long ago).
And here is the AutoCult. The color is a metallic lime gold with green highlights, well applied by AC considering the scale.
BTW, the car is a bit of a TV star, appearing in Bewitched, Batman, Mission: Impossible, and even Star Trek. I wonder how many Trekkies will buy this one?
well, I surely will as I am a huge fan.
Maybe I should by two of them.
1 for my car-collection and 1 in my Star-Trek-collection............
I wouldn't mind seeing some of your Star Trek collection. Not sure about others but some diversity here would be welcomed by me !!
Here it is on Star Trek:
And on Batman - modified as the "Catmobile". Bam! Pow! Zoom!
well, there's actually not that much to see besides a tremendous line of video-tapes (yes, they still work fine with me ) and some dvd's.
I also collected the Micro-machines star-ships and the Hallmark-star-ships alongside some of the models of the phasers and the tricorders.
@joop I used to work for a large insurance company in the early 1980s. In the company newsletter, I found out that an employee (hard-core trekkie) bought the studio mockup of the Galileo shuttlecraft. It was mostly plywood, and must have been knocked down for transport. I think she gave abot 8 grand for it. Wonder if she still has it? Would certainly be a hit at those conventions.
well, I gues you have Trekkies and Trekkies.
She must have been a Trekkie with a lot of "space"......
I loved StarTrek and was overjoyed to get my model of the Enterprise when it was first released !!!
@100ford2003 I had that one and the Klingon Bird of Prey. Both had battery-operated lights.
