Monogram 1/24 El Camion Camper - Some Macho OOB action!
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 8:47 PM
As most of you know, when an old ‘70s kit gets repopped, I get pretty excited. That’s because, even though I love the old ones, they’re not easy to find, and I’d say about half of my “retro” car collection is reissues. However, sometimes I do get lucky, and I find an original, or an older reissue. That means that when the new repop comes along, I don’t have to worry about finding one, or at least finding one right away. :)
 
A perfect example is the Monogram (now Revell) 1/24 1978 El Camino. This was just reissued as a 3-in-1 kit, a repop of the “Lowriders” version, I believe. However, I have an earlier variant, the second of these kits to be issued, the El Camino Camper. The new kit has all these parts and some extras, but I think it’s instructional to check out the source material when you can.
 
 
So, take a gander and all the late-70’s custom-cowboy-streetness you can handle below! Then you can decide if the new one is of interest too!

I'm totally a fan of the older kits and repops are cool too. I also dig El Caminos, just not the later ones, they were straight up ugly. This one appears to be in excellent condition. Look forward to seeing it go live.

Hi Faust!

     Now see what you did? Made me look over on my shelf to check out my "El Diablo". Yup, it's still there!
