Item Description

WAY back in the late 1960s, AMT developed a kit of a concept car that was very optimistic of our future around the turn of the century. About the time this kit was being designed, man had not yet reached the moon, but the space race was still running. Whever the concepts behind this vehicle originated, the designers had assumed that our transportation infrastructure would evolve and become more efficient.

The Amtronic was actually two vehicles in one. The two-place forward section could separate and travel on its own. For longer trips, the rear "station wagon" module would attach to the forward section for significantly more capacity.

You'll note the aircraft-like retractable wheels. For longer range transport, this vehicle would engage a magnetic rail system that would allow the car to be propelled several hundred miles per hour. The car would generate its own lift thrust using two turbine-powered lift fans while engaged on the magnetic rail system.

Great concept car design (if a little naieve)... Unfortunately, the model falls short of hopes and expectations. Many parts don't fit together properly - lots of filing and sanding required (eg. Rearview window was too big for the frame) There are too many tiny parts which could easily have been included in the moulding (eg. 8x "fairing retainers to limit wheel fairing movement; each piece is approx 1mm x 1.5mm!) The "chrome" plating doesn't look realistic AND cannot be glued. I had to remove most of it to get (small, fiddly) pieces to stick together, repainting with a more realistic, metallic paint. One needs three or four hands to coordinate putting some pieces together (eg. two main wheels in front car, plus back panel of front car. Some parts were incredibly difficult to glue and align properly (eg. wheel fairings to wheel struts, power transfer belt cover to trans-axle on rear engine assembly. Short pins were too short for wheels; there weren't enough long pins for wheels AND lift fans, so I had to glue the fans instead of having them free to spin. It was a challenge, resulting in a finished model which shows some imperfections, but to be fair, it was an educational experience.
