Production Ceases For ARMCO / Models56
ARMCO model cars / Models56 has ceased production.
This is sad news as the boutique Aussie brand produced some fantastic 1:43 scale models of interesting subjects. Much of the range is sold out, however there are still some items in stock – check the website www.models56.com.au
The organisation’s John Pisani sent the following communication:
Hello guys and girls. Letting you know officially we are not making any more models.
I have purchased a collection which contains a few of our early release Armco Models that sold out years ago.
If you missed out on anything previously let me know and possibly I may be able to fill the gaps for you.
With our own stock in hand that I would like to reduce the quantity enquire about some great special prices on models in stock you may be interested in. This will be the last email you receive so if you want to be taken off our mailing list don’t worry as this is definitely the last one.
I also wanted to say we met a lot of great people along the way with this journey and that by far has been the most pleasing part. Thanks to a lot of people for there support and help I was always happy to hear from you.
