Speed Racer Mach 5 Model Kit

A resin Speed Racer Mach 5 kit, from Streamline Productions (now out of business).

If I remember right I bought a set o DVDs for the animated series (in the 1990s) and there was a phamplet with information about buying these kits.

I don't know how people found out about them otherwise - and I don't think there are many of these kits out there to find now.

It's a pretty good kit. A heavy solid resin example, with the resin being somewhat soft, or "sand" like in composition. I painted mine Testors Bright White.

The kit didn't require any donor parts to build. It came with the saws in the front, though they are static. I chose to build the kit with them installed. Both the saws and wheels are metal (white metal?). The front headlamps covers and windshield are vacuum formed.

It's a curbside as well, there's no "hood" to speak of. The decals were included and went on nicely.

The Mach V was one of those cars that always needed to be in kit form, I am surprised it took so long for one to be made, even if it is resin.

Over time (decades) the vacuum formed windshield has turned yellow. I may need to try and make a replacement.

This example is actually a little larger than the newer Polar Lights Mach 5 (compared below). Those kits are probably more around 1/32 scale. The box of the Streamline kit says 1/25 but I think it is closer to 1/24.
