Car Craft 1972 - Randall Gremlin 401-XR 1:24th Diorama + Bonus 1:24 Custom Built Replica of 1st Car
Due to my interest in 1970-1987 Era AMC product and the rather dearth of offerings in 1:24 Scale; I decided to commission this Randall Gremlin for my AMC collection. This took some research. The best article I was able to find is from a 1972 issue of Car Craft. Car and figure built by the fantastic Mike Hanson using a mix of kit and Resin. Diorama built by George Bojaciuk. George being a good friend since the FM days connected me with Mike Hanson. We clicked and have since built several custom beauties, all AMC with the exception of an exact model of my first car, a 1991 Mustang GT Coupe (also a challenge). I will share the 1991 Mustang below as well. George was inspired by this Gremlin and miraculously transformed a model into a story...transforming the best of a few hard to find articles on the Randall Gremlin 401-XR into an Amazing Diorama. The Diorama was a generous gift and is truly a one of a kind that I will cherish forever. For those that may not know, Randall AMC of Mesa AZ customized products professionally for their customers. This can be viewed as possibly one of the last true muscle cars from the tail end of the era before the market morphed into the more tame muscle car offerings...with the malaise gas crisis era in between. Very thankful to have good friends like George Bojaciuk and Mike Hanson.
