1974 Plymouth Fury or Dodge Monaco
Posted by Retro Joe on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 5:41 PM

Always wanted one in 1:25. It could be built into so many versions: Hazzard County Sheriff (from the early episodes), Blues Brothers, Fire Chief cars, Taxis, etc, etc... I know that there are 1:18, 1:43 and 1:64 diecasts, but I wonder if we'll ever see 1:25 in either resin or plastic. I would buy several!

There is someone casting these bodies . I think this may be still a WIP . Anyone else have anything further to add ?   Thanx ..

Hi.

nothing as it in 1/25, but here in the uk there is a company making resin bodies for slotcars in 1/32.

Dunno!

This must be the most requested model that's never been made in styrene. Wake up AMT/Revell!

I got a 1/24 resin body off a guy via the Confederate General Lee forum. it was a low quality slush cast and very thick, but enough to make a blues brother's car.

Yep...I'm a member of that forum, too, and saw his casting years ago, but it's not nearly of the quality I require. Maybe another letter to the model companies is in order.

Just got a Facebook reply from Greenlight Collectibles, and their 1:24 scale diecast Monacos are due to hit their warehouse in early September (just over a month from now)! There will be a Bluesmobile and a Chicago Police cruiser!

You would think with 3d printing they could take some of these cool 1/32 lindberg bodies like the 74 grandprix,cordoba,charger and montecarlo and 3d print them in 1/25 scale although the interiors are far from detail the bodies have great detail and beautiful badging dont understand why nobody has done this yet with the prices these bodies would bring you would never loose on the cost of materials

Since there will be diecast bodies to work with now for the 74/75 Monaco in 1:24, it seems like someone could cast them in nicely plastic or resin. Finally!!!

Would love to see this model in 1/25 scale as a kit. I would build one as factory showroom stock, as my neighbor had one and I watched the car turn 10 years old gracefully. Good looking tanks in their time and they were safe and solid cars too. Wake up AMT, Revell, MPC, we don't need more Mustangs and Camaros !!!!

GreenLight didn't quite make their September release for the 1:24 Monacos (the Chicago PD version will be a 75, and the Bluesmobile will be a 74, or vice versa). But they are now pictured on their website with a November release date!

Here they are! Thought I would have to end up ordering online, but was excited to see them on the shelf at my local Meijer. Probably went overboard buying four, but I have plans for two of them!

The stores around here haven't started carrying them yet, so I went with the online option to make sure I didn't miss it.

Just a practice run for now, but it looks pretty good so far. (Don't tell anyone, but the passenger side still wears the "Chicago Police" graphics at the moment).
