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.

Spark will produce the stunning black “test car” livery seen on the Red Bull RB11 prior to the first F1 race of 2015. Made in resin to 1:43 scale, Daniel Ricciardo’s example can be pre-ordered on the Apex site HERE.

Here’s a pic of a pre-production sample of the Chrysler Coca Cola Denim Machine that’s coming from Models56. The organisation says there are a few colour changes required and the release will be limited to just 200 pieces. The Van will be available in a couple of months, 1/43rd scale as usual.
