In 1962, noted builder Bob Peeples largely scratchbuilt a model of the first version of the Predicta. Predicta Project headquarters now has this model (Bob donated it) and we hold it with respect and awe because of the excellent quality build – made all the more poignant since Mr. Peeples passed away in 2011. Check out the following photos of this great model, and think about when this model was built.
A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to do a quick build of the 2010 (didn’t want to use an earlier rare kit). Built straight from the box (with the exception of a micro-small color photo of the car in its 1964 guise), this model came together in about 3 weeks. Here are a few details:
Mike contacted me a few years ago by e-mail – he had apparently visited the old Predicta site and found my e-mail there. A fan of the car, Mike is building a 1/24 and 1/16 versions of the car. I’ve had the pleasure of sharing a few photos with him. I hope Mike will finish up these twin-scale models. Go here to enjoy his work!
