Review: 2014 Pepsi MAX Falcons
Note: seems I forgot to publish this review when I wrote it about 6+ months ago…
Classics Carlectables FG Falcons from 2014
These are par-for-the-course V8Supercars from Classic Carlectables; sealed body with no interior. Lots of collectors don’t like them because of that, but at $39, I don’t mind too much.
The livery is complex decalling, so the finish is not particularly glossy (Edit: a quick run over with a soft cloth does improve the finish quite a bit – both models had some weird residue all over them).
Packaging is cheap and basic, but because there is no display plinth, the model is held in place by vac-form inserts, and these have scuffed and damaged decals on both models – Grrrr!
Apart from some sponsor logo differences, fuel filler location and roof aerials, the two models are essentially the same.
The Mostert/Morris #6 will go on the Bathurst Winners shelf, while Frosty’s #5 will go in the Touring Cars cabinet.
My ‘Lost’ Models: The 1990s
Here’s the third and final installment of my ‘lost’ models. It startles me that the most recent build on this page (the McLaren at the bottom), was over 20 years ago.

Here’s the second installment of the 20 ‘lost’ models mentioned a couple of months back – Tamiya F1s from the 1980s.
