Modeling fans, we have breaking news! The skilled researchers working in the vintage MPC tooling vault have uncovered another exciting GEM! It's the futuristic Transport Truck, a forward-thinking design from the creative minds at MPC during the 1960s! This unusual and desirable kit predicted what "car haulers" might look like today and its features include many "space age" design elements which were so popular back then. This model is packed with features! It 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 go-power, the kit includes an all-chrome six-cylinder overhead cam motor set up in a front wheel drive configuration. The coolest feature of this kit? Ha! 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 in our planned reissue, we're going to release the kit in a slightly larger box (the same size as our 1/25 monster trucks.) This extra room will also allow us 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! We're going to mold the kit in white instead of red as it was originally. It will have lots of gleaming chrome parts, hollow black vinyl tires and colorful water-release color decals.
