Without a Hitch: Motorhead Miniatures 1:18 “Out of Gas” Figures Set

Nov 26, 2012 No Comments by

Meet Lorraine and Cody, a surprisingly cheerful couple who manage a smile, despite the fact that they’re clearly stuck. This latest set of figurines from Motorhead Miniatures “1201″ line (so named for its limited editions of 1201 pieces/sets) is made from cold-cast resin, and includes the figures, an “Out of Gas” sign (attached here to “Lorraine” with white glue, for photography), and a knapsack/sleeping bag.

Motorhead Miniatures has a good thing  going with this series; the original “Fast Women” line of scaled down babes they offered a while back was so popular that the company couldn’t make enough of them to meet demand. The sculpts are killer; realistic faces, free-spirited clothing, and lifelike poses make this set a great add-in to just about any 1:18 display. A 1:43 version is in the works, too.

Hmmm… out of gas, and still smiling? What’s in that knapsack?

About the author

I was always crazy about toy cars and car-themed play sets, but I got hooked on car models when my cousin sent me a pair of built-up AMT kits - a '61 Continental and a '57 Thunderbird. I was six or seven years old when another cousin - Carl - showed me how to build and paint, and by the time I was nine, I had a pretty good collection and a great "spares box" on hand. The original Auto World catalogs were my dream books; my allowance was spent before it was ever earned, and I knew every hobby store and model retailer on Long Island. Then came slot cars, Cox .049-engined Baja Buggies and airplanes, and, ultimately, the real things. I still have some of those old models, and when time allows, I still build or detail scale cars. But it's the ready-to-display replicas and scale racing models that have really had me jazzed for the past fifteen years or so. The "mint" diecasts and the 1:18 American Muscle cars that I cut my serious collecting (and writing) teeth on back then led straight to the current crop of offerings from high-end makers and models in every scale. I also love scale model photography, and shooting, scoring, and producing videos of the models I love. I'm a proud member of the DiecastSpace Diecast Hall of Fame, as well as the Diecast Car Collectors' Club Diecast Scale Model Hall of Fame. I'm also proud to be a part of the Die Cast X Team, and as Editor-in-Chief, I'm looking forward to years of growing the publication and showing new collectors how much fun this hobby can be. And, yeah - I still have that spares box.
