Review: Ertl G-Force IRL Indycar
At the opposite end of the Fine Detail and High Expense scale is this – a $10 diecast picked up at the local market.
These Ertl ‘American Muscle’ items are basically toys constructed in much the same way as the old Onyx Indycars of the early 90s – diecast body, plastic chassis, solid axles and generic suspension. At least the old Onyx items had reasonably accurate markings…
Anyway, for ten bucks, it’s a welcome addition to my Indycar stash, particularly as the range of models of the era in this scale is rather sparse. Also, it’s colourful 🙂
The model would require some major surgery to create an accurate replica, but it’s appearance could quickly be improved with some detail painting, addition of missing decals and suspension tweaking. Maybe one day…

It’s Christmas time and lots of toy cars will be received as gifts on the 25th. Here are some of the toy cars I ‘enhanced’ as I began my interest in scale models many years ago.
