New Stuff From Top Gear (Trax) & Biante
Top Gear’s July product brochure
There are some decent models in here I’d like to buy, but Top Gear have priced themselves out of my market, eg: the yellow Des West FX #27. Trax produced a previous FX of West’s a few years back (in diecast), but this resin one is now twice the price! Why not just use the existing mould? (I’ve posed the question to Top Gear about this – now waiting for the reply).
Biante V8 Supercars
A number of 1:43 scale Supercars became available this week of cars they’ve previously released in 1:18th. This includes 2015 Townsville 400 ‘Peter Brock Tribute Livery’ cars of Tander & Courtney; VIP Petfoods (Gizzy, 2014 Bathurst pole); Percat/Gavin (3rd Bathurst 2014) and a plain body ‘prototype’ VF.
