This is my Creepy T monster car from a small series by AMT/ERTL in the 1970’s. The series was originally released by Fundimensions.

Building car model kits is a bit different than creatures. For one, you have to paint most of the pieces before you put the kit together. Gluing pieces has to be more delicate and precise so you don’t get glue spots on the painted surfaces.

I used Testors enamel spray paint for the red body and the back wheels because it dries smoother and glossier. I used acrylics for the wood coffin-like storage trunk and other misc. parts.

I left the skull head unpainted so it would glow. I just added a little shadowing. The kit suggested keeping the bat(s) as glow parts but I didn‘t like the way they looked and painted them black.

Here are the AMT and MPC/Fundimensions box covers:

This is the second kit in the series. I had built the Mummy Machine last year. I managed to find the Night Crawler Werewolf Wagon by Fundimensions/MPC on eBay which was never re-released by AMT. That is the last in the series and plan to build it in the coming year.

  1. Never seen anything like these before, brilliant. Does the skull glow in the dark? The Night Crawler Werewolf Wagon was a great find, will look forward to seeing that kit when you build it
