New Announcements from Top Gear / Trax

Top Gear has announced a number of new 1:43 scale resin models coming in the early months of 2017. There are some nice Aussie-flavoured subjects this time around, but no race cars. Trax Club members get discount on some models, but I think they’re still rather¬†expensive for what they are. (click/tap the images below for a larger version)    


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 weekRead More


New Release: Chrysler Vans From Models56

Models56/ARMCO have now released two more Chrysler Panel Vans – the Denim Machine and Sports Van. Both are 1:43 scale offerings in resin and are now available from Models56.

New Release Updates – Trax/Spark/Models56

Some updates on new and recently announced models: Top Gear / Trax Top Gear has confirmed the upcoming Holden LE Coupe will be 1:24 scale. I’m sure the regular Trax collectors would have preferred this in 1:43, but I guess there is still that option (for them – or another manufacturer) in the future. This will come with a mirror-backed display case and judging from the Top Gear pics below, should look pretty good. More on the Top Gear site HERE. Apex Spark will produce the stunning black “test car”Read More
