Wooden finish dash... the glove compartment doesn't open... (the Highway 61 Dodge Challenger 1970 model that I own has an operatable glove box)

The front seat in normal driving position

Front seats moved forward and seat back folded forward, for the rear passengers to enter and exit... the front seat is a bench seat like all old American cars, so it moves forward as one piece, but the seat backs are split and fold individually...

That is a fantastic model RPM..!!

What brand is it, and yeah, do tell us how much that put you back by?

That is some mind boggling detail!

And I thought Kyosho's were as good as they get!

RPM: Undoubtely one of the best models I've seen so far. The detailing is awesome. How much does one of these set you back by? What other cars are available?

Thanks guys. The Hudson is from Highway 61 and it cost me AED375, I feel it was worth every penny.

The day I picked up the Hudson, I also saw a 1970 Dodge Dart, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, HUMMER H2 and a 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 from Highway 61. The store has stock varying Maisto to CMC.

There are two guys who manage the store, one Indian and the other a Filipino... now I can only confirm this by word of mouth of the Indian saleman... it seems the CMC MERCEDES-BENZ RACING CAR TRANSPORTER, 1954... which was in the shop on my previous visit was a special order for none other than Mamooty... don't know if it is the truth though... just heresay.

But it doesnt look stable.
I mean the car feels lower and longer
The wheels are great,
I think the only good models are those sold by Mahindra.
All true
Well how much can you expect for 160/-.

Incredible! Unbelievable! This is what I call detailing. This is a true scale model, because it actually looks like a compressed version of the real deal.
Keep it up RPMPKDMFF!
