To the best of my knowledge there have only been 2 model kits of the Avalanche

One was made by Dub (out of production and currently very hard to find)...it was a combination of metal body and plastic parts in which you had options of how to assemble (tire and rim options).  It was offered in 1/64 scale if I recall.

The other was made by Testors (also out of production and currently very hard to find)...it was a combination of metal body and plasic parts with rubber tires.  It was to the best of my recollection only available with a "factory painted" red body and you assemble the remainder of the chassis/interior/tires etc.  It was offered in 1/24 scale only.

Oh and welcome to the club


This does not really qualify as a model...but there is currently available a clear lexan Avalanche body designed for use with Radio Control Chassis

HERE is a link to the site that offers that body...
