Meter Cheater
The Eye-Popin' Traffic-Stoppin' Riot of a Paris Taxi

  • Original year: 1970
  • Company: Revel
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: Dave Deal (box art)

Traffic comes to a snarling halt when the Meter Cheater gets flagged for a fare. Recently retired army veteran Monsieur L. Pierre is sure all the excitement is due to his being chauffeur - - but we all know better. This latest Paris creation is the cause of a laugh riot. Each wacky detail adding up to a gaggle of giggles. Latch your orbs onto the wraparound flower box, carriage lamp taillight, hourglass meter, luggage rack with guitar and suitcases and many, many other visual fun-time things. Build Revell's Meter's a whole Paris Follies by itself!

Dave's comments:

A Paris Taxi is really a "Kookie Kab" as Revell says. Fun box art too. But if the Paris fare is too high, you can always get your pesos out and catch the Tijuana Taxi instead. This kit is sealed.
