Since R2 likes to back date kits, what are the chances of them doing the old MPC '71/'72 Plymouth Road Runner with the "Superbird" nose and wing??

For me, these 2 years were the best looking Roadrunners (GTX, Satellites) ever procuduce either 1:1 or model kit.....
Still have the original '71 MPC kit, but did not build the Superbird version, Over the years, have lost the Superbird Nose and wing......

It is one of very few builds that was built in Iowa and came back to Iowa and 20 different moves from IA to CA to FL to NM and back to Iowa between 1972 and 2014......

I just picked up one of these kits this year at Carlisle Chrysler Nationals for $35. I prefer this kit over the Revellogram kit due to scale. I will build mine with a Amt 1968 Roadrunner chassis.

I believe it is complete if you would want the Superbird pieces.

I would be looking for the complete kit, as I don't want to mess with my 50 year old build. I would want to have the Superbird to go with the "stock" one....though most likely match the paint of the original build as it was painted with an AMT dark blue paint (One lf the 1st two builds that were painted as I built the kit....
Here's a recent pic

and the pair of builds uising the same can oif AMT paint


Do have a couple of the Revellpgram '71 lots (boxes collecting dust) the 2012 rel4ae, GTX one and recently got the 2020 Fast and Furious 2 'n' 1 release for the "side vent" hood....
