MPC Cars

When it comes to loser cars nobody made more kits than MPC. However, MPC also made some cool cars, so you can’t say they were just into the lame stuff. Regardless of the subject matter, though, MPC did make some of the best car kits going. With nicely detailed engines and interiors, MPC offered builders some unique subjects at a good price.

One other thing MPC did well was box art. Most MPC boxes really grab you by the retinas and give your modelling mind a good shake. Now that I have the pleasure of having so many MPCs, I thought a couple of pics of my collection wouldn’t go amiss. What’s your favourite?

Loser Brigade! These are some of my prized MPCs. All are loser cars. All are epic kits. All your fail is belong to us.

More MPC goodness! Everything from wild to super-mild in this particular shot. You can see how their box art evolved from the mid-'70s through to their demise in 1988.

Okay, this time, just the Sunset Striped ones! It was clearly a big theme to do red/orange/yellow "sunset" stripes back in the day. Oh, I know the Capri is not an MPC, but I made an exception here.
