  • AMT Penske PC-6 models

    Had all 4, put them together to various degrees of success, the best one was Mario's 1978 Gould Charge, even survived a fall from a table, totally upside down impact, with just a slightly bent roll bar.

    Any skilled customizers tried to make a PC-7 out of one, or another chassis? Painted one into a version from a lesser-known driver from a later 500 i.e. Scott Brayton's 1981 car?

    20210218_073548.jpgi was gifted this AMC PC-17. The decals are missing.

    I think I will hold on to it

      If you haven't already, check out indycals, run by a TF member. Lots of resources for those old AMT kits. If you are building the Pennzoil PC-17, you definitely want to replace those decals. That particular kit was known to have issues with the decals not setting and curling/wrinkling after drying not matter how much decal set you use. Mike makes gorgeous replacement decals!

        I had two of these when I was a kid. I picked this one up - along with the Indycals - a few years ago, and took a bunch of pictures of the recreated that was in the Museum back in 2016, but never got around to the build. There are forums out there that show you how you can modify this kit into all sorts of versions of the PC-6, and this was the one that inspired me to try the kit again, before life got busy.

          I believe this series debuted in early 1979, with all 3 cars from the Penske stable in the 1978 500. Of course after Mears the '79 500 in a year-old PC-6, they rushed out the "Indy Winner" version later that year. Rick's winning car looks like it had subtle changes to it, like the round red part of the nose piece being flatter. The model was identical to the other ones.

            I made a couple. I used sheet plastic and the kit sprues to make a PC-7 out of one of them, and a wild Lotus 80 copy from another, extended tail/diffuser and all. Wish I still had them!
