New Announcements / Releases

Some new stuff that’s recently been announced:

Top Gear/Trax

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.


Models 56/ARMCO

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.

Those shiny mags look good, yeah?

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.

Holden LJ Torana GTR XU-1  – Orchid Metallic. Does the shape of this thing look a bit strange to you too? Biante’s old diecast version of the XU-1 was an excellent model. This one, maybe not so much.
