Some new stuff that’s recently been announced:
This 1980 Statesman WB Caprice in Nutmeg Metallic is a desirable model that would appeal to many.
Being a Select Series release, it is made to order, and orders close 15 October. Release will be in November.
Trax Code: TSS12, it will sell for $159 inc P&H. And for that reason, I won’t be getting one. $160 bucks for a 1/43? Err… No.
Also from Trax is a 1/43 version of the Holden LE Coupe. Again, another great subject, but a ridiculous price.
Model56 have a few sets of US-style racing mag wheels that will retro fit 1/43 models from them, Trax and others. They look great and really set off a standard street car. $20 for one set, $35 for two.
Models56 also have Valiant VG Pacer and Regal Coupes now available. These are very limited releases with just 100 units of each colour version. Price is $105 +P&H.
A range of 1/18 and 1/43 announcements – these are the 1/43s. All are in resin, all with RRP $77 and to be released in quarter 1 next year.
