New Stuff from Trax, Biante & Models56

New Stuff from Trax, Biante & Models56

A number of new announcements and updates on new product over the past week.

Trax

Top Gear revealed via social media a “1st colour sample” of a Holden LE Coupe (the HX 308 GTS with gold honeycomb wheels). It will be a limited run of just 600 items, in resin.

They won’t reveal the scale, but logic would suggest 1:43 (I mean, why would you do it in a larger scale when Classic Carlectables pumped out 3600 of them in 1:18 a few years back?).

The real car now has a bit of a cult following so this model should prove very popular and help put Trax back on track to producing models of significant Australian cars.

Biante

Now available is a new 1:18 diecast Bathurst car, the Holden LC Torana XU-1 that Bob Jane and John Harvey drove in the Great Race in 1971. More info on the Biante site HERE.
