Description

The Dune Daddy '75 released in the Flying Colors era had Flowers on the hood. Although a similar to the Sand Crab ('70), gone was the glass (plastic) canopy. Originally designed by Tom Daniel, the (model) looks like a crab in the front. Tom says the inspiration came when watching dune buggies scurrying over, around and between sand dunes. Reminded me of crabs at the beach, high on sea weed.

Released with a metal body and chassis, black interior. 1975 would be the only issued year for the Dune Daddy '75 in the regular line-up.

Versions

The Dune Daddy has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:

Notes: On that first variation the yellow is stamped the same, but outside the defined orange area it disappears in the photo. This is not so to the eye.
