Air Car from "The Jetsons" (1962-1963)
About the Design
Set in a romanticized 21st Century, "The Jetsons" cartoon series featured all manner of futuristic vehicles and gadgets, including the requisite family "flying car." Little more than a classic flying saucer with an oversized bubble-top cockpit, the air car was light enough to collapse into an attaché case for easy transport!
About the Kit
An original release by Polar Lights, the Jetsons' Air Car was a simple "Snap" kit with its five occupants pre-painted. Its huge clear plastic dome made it an absolute bear to photograph!
This model was built from an original issue.
