So, I recently picked up the new MCG javelin, but it's not big bad blue... it's more of a metallic blue, and it doesn't have the rally wheels, but just the standard 5 spoke magnum style rims.. but they are to scale and look nice...

Still looking forward to that big bad blue version with the rally rims...

I am by no means an AMC afficiando, but if memory serves me correct, the Big Bad Colors were ONLY available in 1969 and 1970. That Hobby Javelin is a 73, so WHY would it be painted Big Bad Blue?? Also, I don't EVER recall a factory-correct AMC ever painted that type of Blue.

Well, I just finished going through AMC paint charts for 68-74 and couldn't find a color that really comes even close in hue. If you factor in the translucent nature on the Greenlight, it's even less so!
