IXO 1:43 Pierce Arrow “Silver Arrow” – BONUS PHOTOS

Feb 02, 2013 No Comments by

Wayne Moyer has handed in his review of IXO’s 1:43 1933 Pierce Arrow “Silver Arrow” for the Summer 2013 issue of Die Cast X – but we couldn’t resist posting these bonus snaps of the model, which is patterned after a machine currently residing in the Blackhawk Collection. Only five 1:1 Silver Arrows were made; this one’s blue on blue paint scheme and toothy wire wheels make it all the more attractive in scale. Enjoy the snaps!

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.
